At St. George’s Independent School, we believe physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others. Therefore, we are aware of its importance. We provide the broad and balanced programme of physical education we believe every child should have; with activities designed to be enjoyable, vigorous, purposeful and regular. Through providing positive experiences, a lifelong interest in physical activity is encouraged.

The range of physical activities is wide and includes:

  • Athletics
  • Dance
  • Cricket
  • Hockey
  • Dodgeball
  • Volleyball
  • Shuffle ball
  • Rounders
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Individual skills
  • Other team activities

A high-quality programme is designed to satisfy the needs, abilities and interests of all individual children. At St. George’s Independent School each class receives at least 1 hour of games and 1 hour of dance per week. The sessions will contain elements required by the National Curriculum. In class we look for other opportunities to incorporate physical exercise such as ‘Wake and Shake’.
