At RGS The Grange we have created an outstanding environment to help children enjoy their sporting journey. This includes an excellent coaching team which draws the best out of children using current coaching methods while developing important teacher-pupil relationships outside the classroom. The school boasts outstanding playing facilities in 50 acres of grounds, that would rival any senior school.
Pupils up to and including Year Two follow a FUNdamentals Physical Education programme that encourages them to grasp the key skills, which will allow them access to a range of physical activities as they grow up.
Year Three to Six pupils take part in a broad PE curriculum taught by specialist PE teachers. This is then enhanced by the opportunity to learn and play three major games. For boys these games are Rugby, Football and Cricket and, for girls, Hockey, Netball and Rounders.
All children from Years Three to Six represent our school in each sport against other schools and in the termly House competitions. These sports are further supplemented by an opportunity for individuals to compete in sports such as Cross Country, Swimming, Athletics and Tennis. When required we will also seek out further opportunities for children who may play a sport externally to a high level in which the school does not yet specialise.
The focus, however, remains on developing children’s physical abilities in preparation for lifelong involvement in sport, raising confidence and an understanding of health and well being.
The activities programme allows us to create a detailed range of sports clubs enabling every child to find that one activity that can be enjoyed recreationally and beyond.
RGS The Grange is confident that it provides an environment ready and able to engage children new to sport, enthuse and develop those children growing in confidence and push those children who are already performing at the highest level for their age.
Sport is about engaging with children, getting them to enjoy it and wanting to do more, and being confident enough to want to compete!
