PE

At Gatehouse we believe in giving all pupils, irrespective of their academic or physical ability, the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and well developed programme of activities.

In the Upper Juniors, children are given two PE sessions a week by qualified specialist staff, rising to three weekly sessions in Years 5 and 6. We currently offer netball, football, swimming, gymnastics, hockey, cross-country, athletics, cricket, badminton, basketball and trampolining.

Gatehouse is also committed to recognising the importance of physical activity outside the curriculum, and as a result we offer a wide variety of extracurricular sporting activities and arrange a large number of sporting fixtures for teams of varying ability throughout the school year. We have enjoyed a great deal of success, with individuals and teams being frequently present at area and national competitions.
