PE and sport play a very important role in the daily programme for every St Hugh’s pupil; for general skills, health and fitness and also for the fun and sportsmanship that active participation and successful competition can bring.
The aim of the PE programme is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle by involving the children in a broad and varied range of sports and activities. Creativity is also nurtured, fostering independent learning and the ability to work alongside others. A sense of fair play and graciousness in victory and defeat is encouraged.
The timetable allows boys and girls to be involved in Physical Education and Games sessions 5 to 6 times a week.
PE lessons are fully co- educational and are varied to allow the children to experience different sports and activites:
Years 3-6: Health Related Fitness & Invasion Games (Netball Fives, Football, Basketball and Hand Ball)
Years 7-8: Health Related Fitness & Invasion Games (Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball, and Lacrosse)
