Physical Education

All pupils have access to a diverse programme of games, movement and swimming, taught by specialist PE teachers and coaches, where the emphasis is on enjoyment, skills development and teamwork.

Opportunities include, but are not limited to: football, tag rugby, netball, hockey, cross-country, rounders, tennis, cricket, athletics, gymnastics, trampolining, and swimming as well as an equestrian team, judo and climbing clubs. Strong links also exist with local clubs to offer pathways to elite performance.

Pupils are grouped in a variety of ways during lessons to accelerate attainment, whilst, for team training sessions, they are coached in ability groups which remain flexible throughout the season to accommodate improvement.  Pupils take part in local, district and national competitions in a variety of sports; every child is proud to represent their school. In all sport we strive for ‘excellence with inclusion’.

We provide the foundations to enable pupils to continue to participate in sport at all levels and to appreciate the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
