Sport is thriving at Sacred Heart School!
Boys and girls achieve a high level of skill under the excellent direction of our specialist games teacher.
From the Foundation Stage, carefully planned activities enable the children to improve co-ordination and proficiency in basic skills which are transferred into games situations as they progress through the school.
We play matches regularly against other schools in the area and we enter teams in festivals and competitions locally and further afield as members of the ISA.
Membership of the ISA enable us to compete against schools form across the south east in range of sports including cross country, judo, football and netball. In recent years our runners have qualified for the ISA National Cross Country Finals in Warwickshire and our Rugby team came home with runners-up medals from the London South East Rugby Competition.
As a small school, often competing against much larger schools, we are particularly proud of our record. In the 2014-15 season, although not winning any major trophies we were delighted that our U11 Netball team was awarded the Fair Play Cup at the Battle Abbey Tournament.
Pupils enjoy 3 lessons a week with a specialist teacher; in years 5 & 6 pupils enjoy Wednesday games afternoon, when boys and girls are taught separately and have the opportunity for regular fixtures against local schools
The P.E. curriculum includes hockey, netball, football, rugby, cricket and rounders, athletics, gymnastics and dance and is extended through a varied range of lunch time and after-school clubs and activities which includes Pop Lacrosse!
