Infant and Junior Sport
A healthy mind in a healthy body.
Here at Nottingham High School we encourage our pupils to stay active by providing an array of opportunities to help them discover their passions and develop their skills.
Not only does regular exercise and sport ensure children let off steam and concentrate better in the classroom, it also provides many valuable lessons for life.
A good sports programme teaches pupils courage, skill, strength, competitiveness, resilience and working as a team, as well as learning to win with courtesy and lose with good grace.
At Nottingham High Infant and Junior School the sporting opportunities are vast. We have weekly swimming lessons in our school pool for all pupils, and as they progress through the school swimming and PE will be supplemented with a carousel of additional sports such as hockey, netball, cricket and football. Pupils can also try other options like tennis, dance and athletics if they appeal.
For some pupils, playing in a competitive and successful school team is the highlight of the week. Other prefer more informal games and matches with others of the same ability. Every child is catered for here.
