In their PE lessons, pupils at Port Regis cover a variety of units of work which help them to develop their core skills as individuals, whilst making use of the fantastic facilities and specially-trained staff.
As a preparatory school we see PE as an essential part of a child's education. Particularly in the early years, gymnastics helps children develop core strength and stability. By putting this at the heart of our PE programme in the Lower School, Portregians have a headstart in any sport they chose to pursue throughout their school years and beyond.
Years 3 and 4 (F and E Form) have one double PE lesson a week and cover gymnastics, cross country, athletics, tennis and the A-B-Cs (agility, balance and co-ordination).
Years 5 and 6 (D and C Form) continue to have one double PE lesson a week and cover gymnastics, ball skills, badminton, cross country, athletics and tennis.
Year 7 (B Form) have one double PE lesson a fortnight and develop their skills in gymnastics, ball skills, badminton, cross country, athletics and tennis.
Year 8 (A Form) have one double PE lesson a fortnight and cover rackets, cross country, athletics and tennis, as well as a health-related fitness unit of work looking into health, fitness and methods of testing and training the various components of fitness.
All year groups also receive swimming as part of their PE curriculum.
Our Sports Centre contains a heated swimming pool as well as a gymnasium with competition-standard apparatus including a sunken trampoline. The squash courts are located in the nearby Jowett Hall along with the sports hall which is used for basketball, badminton, 5-a-side football, fencing and cricket nets.
