Sport and PE provide our children with opportunities to develop a wide range of skills. Enjoyment and skills development are the core elements of every lesson.
Weekly Games lessons at Bloxham School
Strong links with our local senior independent school, Bloxham School, afford our pupils regular access to their extensive grounds and first class sporting facilities. Children in Years 3 – 6 enjoy two hours of weekly Games sessions; taking advantage of the school’s excellent facilities for traditional team games and other sports all year round. Our Pupils make full use of the sports hall, outdoor astroturf and extensive playing fields, which are used to host the annual SJP Prep Sports Day and other sports including: rugby, soccer, netball and hockey and, in the Summer, cricket, tennis, rounders and athletics.
Weekly Swimming at Bloxham School
From Year 1, our children enjoy weekly swimming lessons at Bloxham School. Specialist swimming coaches support our children in learning to swim and to develop their technique; teaching mastery in a range of strokes by the time our pupils leave us.
In addition to their Games lessons, children in Years 3 – 6 also participate in PE lessons for 45 minutes per week which are taught on our school grounds. Pupils in Reception, Years 1 and 2 enjoy twice weekly PE lessons.
We have an all-inclusive approach to sports, which gives every child an opportunity to represent the school in sporting fixtures throughout the academic year. The fixtures programme for boys, girls and mixed teams is extensive. These offer competitive opportunities for children of all abilities, across the academic year and in a diverse range of sports
In addition to the extensive sporting programme, our pupils are able to join extra-curricular sporting clubs after school including Judo, ballet, tap, modern dance, musical theatre and football.
