The PE Department has four specialist PE teachers, who are passionate about and dedicated to sport. In addition to our full-time PE staff, we employ specialist sports coaches to run some of our clubs. Sporting life at The Manor balances a commitment to physical health and fitness for all through a diverse and challenging sport and PE programme. Our curriculum lessons include Netball, Hockey, Swimming, Water Polo, Football, Tag-Rugby, Cricket, Gymnastics, Dance, Badminton and Tennis. To complement the curriculum, sports clubs are run from Reception to Year 6 before school, at lunchtimes and after school. All lunchtime clubs are non-selective and open to children of all abilities.
We have Inter-House fixtures for Years 1 to 6 covering eight sports. In addition, the fixture list for Year 3 – 6 is extensive and offers competitive opportunities for children of all abilities. We have an enviable record of success in matches and tournaments competing in County, Regional and National competitions for Netball, Hockey, Cross-Country, Swimming, Tennis, Athletics, Biathlon and Triathlon.
