Physical Education

Head of Department: Tim Fox

Set within Saint Ronan’s impressive grounds are numerous pitches for all major games, a challenging cross-country course and athletics facilities. The school also has a heated outdoor swimming pool, four tennis courts, a Sports Hall and a new Astro.

Pupils have curriculum PE lessons focusing on activities such as gymnastics, badminton, cross-county running and swimming. In addition, they have daily training sessions for major games in preparation for their match afternoons. There is also an extensive extras programme where the pupils have a choice of different activities, ranging from mountain biking, fencing, judo to table tennis and fishing, for example.

Participation in PE and Games allows pupils to develop their skills, tactical awareness, sportsmanship and fitness in a wide range of activities. Inter-school matches and house matches then provide an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the pupil’s ability in a more competitive environment.

The programme provided aims to inspire and enthuse all the pupils to foster a love of sport which they can continue to pursue when they leave Saint Ronan’s.
