Key Stage 3
Sport plays a significant role in the lives of pupils at Holcombe Grammar School and there are regular weekday and weekend extra-curricular activities running throughout the year for students to participate in, including football, rugby, hockey, cricket and athletics to name but a few. Extra-curricular activities are available for everyone and all pupils are encouraged to take part in our extensive Physical Education program.
Pupils receive 1 x 120 minute lesson per week covering a range of sporting activities from table tennis to softball over the course of each year. Emphasis is on learning and enjoyment and pupils are encouraged to become analytical thinkers as well as accomplished performers. Pupils’ knowledge and understanding plays a major part of the PE curriculum as pupils are expected to understand why they achieve and more importantly, what they need to do to progress further.
