Junior Sports

Our pupils learn to keep fit and play competitive sports, from their time in Kindergarten right up until they leave school. Sport is an important part of life at Gad’s as it teaches discipline, teamwork and it’s fun!

Equal opportunity, full participation and fair play are emphasised through both team games and individual pursuits, helping children to develop a competitive spirit which is so important in the post-school world.

The indoor and outdoor facilities allow us to offer a really broad range of sports to our pupils and we regularly participate in and enjoy considerable success at local, county and regional fixtures and tournaments.

In Junior School, sport is about extending a pupil’s passion for exercise – something we hope they will maintain throughout their lives.

Our Juniors participate in all manner of physical and sporting activities. Ranging from simple playground games to fixtures against other schools, the children have the opportunity to be healthy, active and competitive. Within lessons, skills are taught that can be used in team games such as football, netball, tag rugby and hockey and all year groups swim throughout the year.
