Small group sizes allow each pupil to get one-to-one attention and the mixture of individual and team sports ensures that all pupils have the opportunity to explore sports and PE, finding the activities that they enjoy.

Committed, well qualified staff are supported by outstanding coaches, allowing pupils the chance to develop in their chosen sports. King’s have full fixture lists in several sports and consistently reach county, regional and national finals.  We encourage all pupils to take part in sport outside of lessons and all are welcome to attend extra-curricular practices, whatever their skill-level.

The life-skills of determination, commitment and team-work are developed through sport and we pride ourselves on the role it plays in the formation of fine young men and women who leave school with confidence, high skill levels and positive attitudes.

In addition to the undoubted contribution these skills make towards future success, the main aim of the department is to build confidence and enjoy sport at whatever level throughout their lives.
