PE and School Sport is an integral part of each students life at SSSC. We use PE and School Sport to transform the lives of our pupils, instilling them with self esteem, confidence, independence and team work.
Most importantly we develop our students ability to challenge themselves and succeed. This enables each young person to begin to unlock their full potential in PE, but most importantly in all aspects of their lives.
Each student currently receives 3 hours of physical education per week and 6 weeks of swimming per year.
In Key Stage 3 our pupils follow a prescribed curriculum and have access to Handball, Basketball, Football, Tennis, Rounders, Softball, Cricket, Dance, Gymnastics and Trampolining.
In Key Stage 4 pupils have the option to chose their own pathway of activities that are categorised into 3 strands. Performance, Creative and Recreation. This enables them to achieve their potential when accessing qualifications in OCR Entry Level GCSE PE and Cambridge Nationals.
All children have access to meaningful competitive opportunities at all levels of the school games structure. This includes inter-house competitions alongside school and county competitions.
Each year we host the SSSC Gym and Dance display where our pupils perform a rehearsed routine as part of their PE lessons to parents and carers. This is a fantastic opportunity for all of our pupils to showcase what they are capable of, whilst also celebrating their achievements
We also provide an annual ski trip to Samoens, France. This opportunity is open to all pupils in SSSC and is heavily subsidised by our school. It really is a once in a lifetime experience that enables our pupils to access a sport that they may not have experienced before.
