Sport and fitness is central to our curriculum at Thorpedene.
With a record number of sports taking place at our school, we have a busy and exciting sports and fitness programme for all of our year groups. In addition to traditional P.E. times, where games, gymnastics, dance and athletics are taught, we now provide a wide range of breakfast and after school clubs/ squads.
Take a look around the Sports section of our website and you will see that we certainly have a lot to shout about!
The school has a range of popular clubs that it offers to pupils.
All staff are DBS checked and meet the schools standards expected for all adults working with our children.
Further details of all clubs (sports and non sports) can be found on the ‘Our Clubs’ page on the website, and waiting lists are held at the School Office.
