The Royal Liberty School Physical Education department looks to promote a lifelong interest in sport and physical activity by delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. We aim to develop a student’s physical competencies and provide them with the confidence to use these skills during PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs, inter-college competitions and school competitions.
The Royal Liberty School has a four badminton court sports hall that is also equipped for indoor cricket and basketball. Attached to the sports hall is a modern, well-equipped gym with treadmills, stationary bikes and a cross trainer. The field is home to a football and rugby pitch and in the summer, a 400m running track, cricket pitch, softball pitches, with an added long jump pit. We also have an brand new Astroturf cricket pitch and 3 lane Astroturf cricket net facilities, as well as an on-site pavilion.
All students receive two hours of Physical Education per week. GCSE Physical Education students have an extra five hours a fortnight. Students follow the National Curriculum through activities such as rugby, football, basketball, dodge ball, health-related fitness, badminton, athletics and cricket.
The Physical Education department offers a full range of extra-curricular opportunities for ALL students. During the autumn and spring terms we run football, rugby, indoor-rowing, basketball, badminton and fitness clubs. In the summer term we change to cricket, athletics and softball.We currently have achieved Sainsbury's School Games Silver Mark.
