Sport at St Gabriel’s offers a balanced curriculum for physical education. The PE Department has a strong all year round fixture list aimed at inclusion with many year groups having fixtures for A-D teams. All pupils are encouraged to enjoy our main sports, hockey, netball, tennis, swimming and athletics.
More able pupils are challenged and mentored by our expert staff to achieve their sporting potential. We offer specialist netball academy sessions as well as a competitive gymnastics squad. Sport scholars take part in both the Challenge & Extension Programme and Sport Scholarship Programme, where they will be invited to attend additional training sessions, talks and trips.
Sport Scholarships are honorary and may be awarded to outstanding candidates. The scholarship is based on the sports levels and awards obtained by the candidate and a practical assessment.
Requirements for Entry
- Candidates must produce evidence of their sporting achievements eg national awards, team membership, individual successes
- A written report from the candidate’s present Head of PE or teacher responsible for their PE lessons
Candidates’ skills and fitness will be tested in a variety of sports/activities during the practical assessment. Leadership skills will also be observed and assessed.
