Our students enjoy success in the Independent Schools Association competitions, with some of our Advanced Performer Programme members going on to the highest levels in their sports. We foster and celebrate these achievements, while ensuring that every student can enjoy being active, competing and developing their skills. Keen athletes can keep themselves active and play sports every day of the week, from our early swim and cardio classes at 6.30am through to games training under the floodlights in the evening.
Our elite athletes benefit from a programme of support run by our Head of Athletic Development. This includes bespoke strength and conditioning programmes in our state of the art strength and conditioning centre, as well as additional sports psychology, diet and nutrition support, trips to some of the top facilities in the country and inspirational talks from leading athletes and outside speakers. Sports Scholars benefit from our partnership with Go Perform, who give medical support physiotherapy and training on avoiding injuries.
We run fixtures with multiple teams at each age group. Teams and individuals compete in a wide range of county, regional and national fixtures every year. As a result, many of our top athletes are often selected for county, regional and national teams.
The most popular boys’ sports are Football, Rugby, Athletics and Cricket, while the most popular girls’ sports are Netball, Hockey, Tennis and Swimming.
We offer about 30 different sports and active clubs each term. There is something for everyone at Leighton Park, whether that’s rock climbing, judo, golf, horse riding, sailing, dance, swimming or yoga to name a few.
In Physical Education, we place a lot of emphasis on students learning to move properly. This includes physical literacy and movement competency and overall fitness and health from both a physical and mental standpoint. Every student from Year 7 to Year 10 gets a data tracker to assess their progress in sport as well as giving them insights into the links with their mental health and happiness. The link between moving your body and how you feel is really important. Click the image to find out more about our GCSE programme.
