Sporting Provision

P.E., School Sport have a very high profile at Westcroft. Children access a very wide range of sports and activities both in and out of school hours. Our learner swimming pool and four court sports hall with sprung floor allow us to deliver a high quality P.E. curriculum supported by high quality facilities and resources.

  • In Key Stages 1 and 2 all children receive a 60 minutes P.E. lesson, a 60 minutes Swimming and Water Safety lesson and a 30 minutes Cool Kids session every week.
  • In Key Stages 3 and 4 students receive a 90 minutes P.E. lesson and two 60 minutes Fitness sessions
  • In Phase 5 students receive a 120 minutes P.E. Lesson

All students in Phases 3 and 4 swim for at least one term every school year using public pools when ready.

In addition to curriculum activities this there is a wide range of lunchtime activities (SPACE Time) available to all children and students every day.

After school clubs operate on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays each week. Activities include swimming, table tennis, badminton street dance and trampolining.

All children and students attend an Extended School Day on Wednesdays where they choose an activity and do it for the term. The vast majority of these are sport based and the school employs its own staff and external coaches for a range of activities including football, tennis, indoor climbing, sailing and cycling.

On Friday afternoons enrichment activities involve targeted groups of students from Key Stages 2, 3, 4 and 5 accessing a wide range of mainly sport based activities including sailing, climbing, boxing, mountain biking and using local gyms.

A wide range of residential visits take place including those which focus on Outdoor and Adventurous Activities. These include Mountain Biking weekends in Wales and spending a week at the Towers residential OAA Centre in Capel Curig.

Summer Schools take place for Lower School (KS1 and 2) and Senior School (KS3 and 4) during the Summer Holidays and include skiing, high ropes courses, mountain biking, assault courses, walking and trampolining
