PHYSICAL & MENTAL WELLBEING

Middle School Sports

During the Middle School years students undertake a programme of physical education that has at its core the importance of exercise for physical and mental heath and wellbeing.

Wednesday afternoon and Saturday morning Games offer an opportunity to take part in competitive leagues and matches against local schools. The collaborative element of team games is highly valued and students are encouraged to participate in House sporting events too. A variety of team and individual sports are offered such as football, rugby, hockey, netball, tennis, gymnastics, swimming, athletics, circuits and fitness training and pilates. In addition, work on nutrition, lifestyle and exercise physiology takes place in the A2B (Aspire to Be) Programme.

TEAMGYM

An Extensive Sport Offering

One of our unique offerings is the provision of TeamGym. Set to music, TeamGym is a team competition that includes routines being performed on three pieces of apparatus: floor, trampette and a tumbling track. TeamGym routines require effective teamwork, excellent technique and spectacular acrobatic elements. They are also incredibly exciting to watch!

Our top class Gymnastics studio is utilised both as part of the lesson programme and also after the core school day. Interested students are invited to join both mixed ability sessions and also the Reddam House Team Gym Development Squad all provided by our top UK Gymnastics coach.
