Physical Education

Competitive sport is a vibrant part of the sporting ethos at Colston`s School. Our games programme endeavours to promote physical health and social interaction amongst all pupils, whilst providing every pupil with the opportunity to represent the school in a variety of team and individual sports.

All pupils have a chance to succeed at every level, and those excelling in particular sports are encouraged to represent their school at county, regional and national levels.

We offer pupils the two courses in the Sixth Form: BTEC National Diploma (equivalent to 2 A-Levels) and the BTEC C.  Both courses enables pupils to develop their sporting performance through an improved understanding of sports physiology, diet and nutrition, health and fitness and the wide range of contemporary issues that surround the world of sport.

Colston's has a strong tradition of inter- and intra-school competition. Regular fixtures are played midweek and on Saturdays against other schools, as well as termly House matches. All pupils are given opportunities to participate in competitive situations, and encouraged to develop a regular and active lifestyle that is fundamental to all our lives. Colston`s also offers a wide range of lunchtime and after school sports clubs in which pupils can opt to participate to further their sporting experience.
