PE is very important at Bishop Aldhelm’s. As well as lessons, children have the opportunity to join different extra curricula clubs. A wide variety of clubs are offered for free by staff at school whilst others are paid for by external providers. Children have the chance to represent the school at a friendly level up to county. The school has a number of teams including football, netball, sailing, cross country and athletics.
Children at Bishop Aldhelm’s have opportunities to play sport alongside and against other local schools both in friendly and in competitive events. We make sure of local facilities such as the leisure centre for swimming, Rockley Water Sports for sailing and RNLI for beach/water safety.
