What is involved in the School Sport programme?


The competition calendar continues to evolve due to the rise in popularity of some sports, as well as our work with national governing bodies and local clubs and in consultation with the borough's schools. Alongside long-standing competitions such as boccia, cricket, high5 netball and athletics, new sports have been introduced including seated volleyball, handball and dodgeball.

Furthermore, a number of development competitions and festivals have also been offered to provide opportunities for more pupils to represent their school in an environment that is relevant to them, where the focus on learning how to play the sport and skill development, rather than a focus just on results.
