Team Sport

Once a week, the senior school team goes out for a block of sport. Students play games using the skills they have learned at P.E. across winter or summer sports. Students rotate around 4-5 different sports each term. Sportsmanship is a big part of team sport at Cockle Bay School.

Specialist Physical Education Programme

Every class attends a specialist P.E. session for 45 minutes per week. Our Physical Education programme teaches the importance of teamwork, learning to cooperate and share. It is also an opportunity for your child to push themselves and understand what they’re capable of achieving.
