Preparing, Believing, Achieving




At Penny Bridge we put a strong emphasis on physical education for all. The children all take part in lessons which keep them fit and healthy and enable them to experience a range of sports. We think that physical education skills are a key part of a child's development and plan lessons to ensure progression throughout the key stages. All children receive swimming lessons and are able to meet the national standard before they end their primary education.




Alongside our lessons we run a variety of after school clubs and enter a number of local events. In order for the children to enjoy competition we try to link our clubs with an upcoming competition, therefore giving them the opportunity to perform to the best of their abilities. 


We run clubs and compete in the following sports:


Football, rugby, cricket, athletics, orienteering, netball, basketball, multi sports, gymnastic,swimming and tennis


Recent success have been;


Winners of area cross country relay event.

Two children competing in national finals in cross country. 

Runners up in local football competition

County finalists at tag rugby

Runners up in local kwik cricket competition

Area finalists in sports hall athletics

Winners of the small school local swimming competition.




We give a broad and balanced sporting curriculum by also offering one off events such as a whole bike ride, outdoor days with local providers, dance competitions and a whole school sports day.
