Sport at Greenbank Preparatory School

Greenbank Preparatory School believe that Sport is a fundamental part of the school week and should be a positive experience for all our children. Children who participate in sport demonstrate a healthy lifestyle, build self esteem and confidence.  Sport can motivate children to excel academically plus builds social skills.  Greenbank compete in a number of sports against many local school and other independent schools. Inter school House matches are played each term so that all children experience playing for a team and competing in sporting events.

Curriculum

The children participate in an indoor PE lesson and a lengthy outdoor Games lesson per week, using the field, Astroturf, netball court or the school hall. The children often work beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum covering a number of sports and activities throughout the school year. The Sport specialist teachers motivate the children and their enthusiastic approach inspires the children to enjoy and appreciate sport.
