"Competitive sport and physical education form a vital part of a rounded education"
Physical education prepares children to be physically and mentally fit and active for life. We aim to foster a lifetime commitment to sport and physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle. Lessons are planned to develop pupils' physical skills in a variety of specialisms as well as their tactical knowledge and understanding of rules. We follow a more traditional curriculum with a focus on basketball and rugby early on in the school year. Pupils will also develop their skills and abilities in areas such as netball, gym, dance, rounders, cricket and athletics.
St Richard Reynolds Catholic College provides pupils with many opportunities to enjoy and excel at a wide variety of sports including rugby, football, cricket, netball, basketball, rowing, rounders, tennis, archery, cheerleading and fencing. No fewer than 20 sports were offered in the first year of the College. There are indoor facilities and a playing field on site and the school has a sporting relationship with St Mary’s University Twickenham.
Maintaining and improving your fitness is hugely important to living a healthy lifestyle. It is also essential knowledge to have with regards to your fitness assessment in PE. You cannot rely on exercise & fitness in your PE lessons to score a high level of assessment; you need to be doing regular fitness at home or at your club to be meeting the governments requirements. Perhaps its also time to think about HOW you get to school? Walking/cycling are great ways to travel and will contribute to your overall health.

Sending and receiving a variety of objects in practice and small game situations are also a key component of lessons. Pupils learn through multi-skill activities as well as skill-focused activities. Games, gym, dance and athletics are examples of the topics covered.
