Physical Education has a high profile at Gladesmore Community School. Our experienced and enthusiastic PE team aim to broaden and develop pupils’ physical, mental and social wellbeing through the medium of sport and exercise.
Facilities: Our facilities are exceptional for an inner London School. We are blessed to have access to a full-size Astro-Turf, a full-size Sports hall, an Acrobatic gym, a Dance studio, two Multi Use Games Areas and a modern Fitness suite. In addition to this, the School is located next to Markfield Park which we can use for both our outdoor PE lessons and after-school fixtures.
PE lessons: The PE department provide fun, challenging and varied PE lessons that focus on a range of team and individual sports across each season of the year. Please see the PE curriculum page to find out more.
Extra-curricular opportunities: There are lots of extra-curricular PE opportunities at Gladesmore Community School and the school is a strong competitor at borough and county level.
A few recent accolades include:
- U13 Boys Football team becoming Middlesex Football Champions (2019-20)
- Four individual boys’ and girls’ Athletics teams winning Borough Athletics Competitions last summer.
However, the PE Department recognises that not everyone can or needs to be a champion athlete to benefit from engagement in PE. We host clubs on a regular basis for all pupils including Football, Netball, Basketball, Dance, Rugby, Trampolining and Athletics. We invite all our pupils to try a new activity and get well and truly stuck into Sport!
