School Sports Home Page
Sport is very important at Blue Coat. It plays a key role in developing a pupil’s potential – physical fitness and skill, teamwork, learning how to win and how to lose. We coach sport to a very high level, whilst also providing for and encouraging those for whom participation rather than excellence is important.
Major sports are Rowing, Rugby, Netball, Football, Hockey, Cricket, Tennis and Athletics. All the major sports have a highly competitive and extensive fixture list. Other sports include Golf, Squash, Cross Country running, Climbing, Weight Training, Swimming, Rugby Sevens, Shooting and Archery.
Over the last six years, since its inception at the school, we have an increasingly large group following the British Sports Trust Sports Leadership Level 1 Award at senior level. Those new to the course spend their time learning the skills necessary to organise a games activity or simple fitness session safely and properly. They then spend much of the rest of the year gaining practical experience in teaching a variety of sports in several local Primary schools.
