At Stormont, specialist PE teaching begins from reception (EYFS). In KS1, activities include ball skills, gymnastics, dance, athletics and swimming (from F2). In KS2 the girls participate in netball, unihoc/hockey, pop lacrosse, cross-country, gymnastics, dance, swimming (whole year for F3 and one term per year for Forms 4-6), rounders, athletics and tennis. Lessons are carefully differentiated to ensure all girls are working comfortably at their own level and achieving their individual potential.
Our top performers are encouraged to apply for Sports Scholarships to a variety of senior schools and we have a good record of success in this area. Whatever the ability level of each girl, PE is inclusive and an enjoyable subject where everyone can improve and achieve. Sports teams of different levels have regular fixtures with local schools in the spirit of friendly competition.
