Vision for Sport

Sport plays a very important part in life at both St Mary's and St Margaret’s. We strongly believe in the benefits of both individual and team sports and, whether an elite performer or a beginner, all pupils are encouraged to participate and develop whatever their ability.  Learning to work and play as a team teaches trust, increases resilience and builds confidence and self-esteem, all valuable qualities which can be transferred to everyday life.

We identified a number of priorities for new facilities to improve and enhance the physical education of all our pupils and we are delighted that a new full size astroturf and 3 additional netball courts were built in summer 2014. Moreover, we have leased offsite pitches for both schools which have proved a great success.

The final phase of our Vision for Sport – an extension to the Sports Centre to include a sports hall, a multi-purpose fitness room, an enlarged dance studio, new changing rooms and improved staff facilities has now been completed  thanks to the philanthropic support of parents, former parents, former pupils and friends. Current pupils of both schools, our Community Partners and Sports Centre Members can now fully enjoy and benefit from the new facilities.
