Our learners are encouraged to participate in a diverse range of sporting and cultural activities. A learner’s enjoyment of the activity that they participate in is as important as the fact that they are participating. One of the essentials that we place a high value on is that learners are provided with opportunities to discover new areas for personal growth, whether on the sports field or on the stage performing.
Sport and physical development forms an integral part of our holistic approach to Health in the “Whole Me” framework. As such, we offer a various sporting programmes where our learners are able to develop the necessary skills, values and attitudes to grow holistically. Sports programmes offered include the following:
