Sports & Physical Education

Every student deserves the opportunity and encouragement to achieve their physical potential in a stimulating, informative and safe environment.

Our aims are to:

  • Encourage a healthy and active lifestyle throughout the school;
  • Nurture sportsmanship in all aspects of competition;
  • Widen each student’s sporting experience and enjoyment;
  • Create a passion for active recreation and sport;
  • Assist students in reaching their physical potential in a variety of sporting environments.

The PE staff work closely in designing, planning and delivering sport at Reach British School which enhances our students’ experience in sport. The pathway for each and every child in sport is an enjoyable and challenging journey. Our sports facilities include a large gymnasium, two multi-purpose sports rooms for a variety of smaller games and movement classes, an outside basketball court and soccer field as well as a 25m indoor swimming pool. These facilities enable our students to develop skills in all areas and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

The importance of Physical Education

PE develops students’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school. A high-quality PE curriculum enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. They develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. When they are performing, they think about what they are doing, they analyse the situation and make decisions. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve upon them.

As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.

PE helps students develop personally and socially. It instills passion, respect, integrity, resilience, teamwork, commitment, and sportsmanship. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, leading their own learning and coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.
