During their time here at The Sir John Colfox Academy, we want our students to gain an appreciation for sport and realise the importance of leading a healthy active lifestyle. We introduce a theoretical element into Key Stage 3 lessons to enhance the students knowledge and understanding of sport and prepare those students that will continue onto our GCSE course. Alongside this, we highlight the importance of ‘life skills’ such as resilience and communication to name but a few, and how these can be demonstrated through sport.
We also run an extensive extracurricular program at both lunchtimes and after school, which we encourage all our students to take advantage of where possible. Regular fixtures against local scores take place, as well as entries into Area, County and National cup competitions.
