Sports News

Sport is a key part of school life for all students at St Anne’s School. We are dedicated to providing the very best in Physical Education and we recognise that it is an area of physical, mental and social development and we aim to promote good health and fitness in all children. Within curriculum time, the Foundation and Key Stage 1 children are taught introductory activities in areas of gymnastics, athletics and the fundamental skills required in more traditional ‘games’. The progression of knowledge and skills continues into Key Stage 2 lessons, where pupils develop a greater understanding of performance in sporting activities. To complement and extend the curriculum content, we provide all children with the opportunity to take part in our varied extra-curricular program consisting of individual and team activities. Pupils at St Anne’s Preparatory School are able to compete in a number of sporting fixtures and competitions. We have won many awards and trophies for our sporting accomplishments in a range of sporting events.
