The primary aim of the Sports Department is to instil a love of sport, from Pre-School through to Year 6. We introduce all the children to a wide range of sports whilst teaching a healthy and respectful attitude towards competition. The emphasis is always on enjoyment and being the best we can be. We believe that if children enjoy their sport, they will want to learn more and they will subsequently achieve more.
We promote sport and fitness for all ages and ability levels. We recognise that lessons learnt through participation in sport and team activities are invaluable for personal development and we want to foster a lifetime of healthy living. Whether a student is participating as individual or as part of a team, sport provides them with a unique opportunity to begin lifelong friendships, learn to conquer their fears and build strength of character.
The Paragon offers an extremely varied programme of PE and Games. Lessons from our specialist sports teachers cover netball, hockey, rugby, football, cricket, tennis, gymnastics and components of fitness. From Reception onwards, children also have swimming lessons which take place at our secondary school, Prior Park College. Our sports teams are highly competitive and take part, with considerable success, in a wide range of tournaments and festivals. We also offer a vast range of sports clubs including rugby sevens and cross country.
Our facilities include a well equipped gym, a hard play area for tennis and netball and also a playing field. We also use our excellent facilities at Prior Park College which include our multi purpose sports centre and fitness suite, indoor swimming pool, sand dressed artificial pitches, tennis courts, athletics track and dance studio.
