Physical Education

Sport is an integral part of life at Caister Academy. We pride ourselves on the fact that there should be something for everyone, from team players aiming for excellence to clubs which play only for the love of sport. We believe in the philosophy of “Sport for all” with enjoyment playing a key role in this ethos.

We have excellent sporting facilities on site including a large modern sports hall, fitness suite, gymnasium, netball courts and a large field used throughout the year and for our annual summer sports day.

Within the curriculum we aim to give pupils a progressive programme, which unfolds each year providing new challenges and experiences. This will help to promote a healthy, active lifestyle after they leave Caister Academy.
