PE and extra-curricular sport is one of the school’s key strengths. All children benefit from two quality PE lessons every week and we have excellent participation in our wide range of after-school sports clubs. A specialist sports coach is employed to complement our teachers and we have forged strong links with local clubs and facilities.
We encourage all our children to lead healthy lifestyles by educating them about the importance of balanced diets and exercise.
Our teams did unbelievably well at the 2022 annual Dudley Cross Country !
27 primary schools braved the weather at Summerhill School on
17th February and incredibly both our boys and girls teams came first!
Layla Williams (Year 6) came first out of all the girls and Sebastien Clarke came first out of all the boys...despite still only being in Year 5!
Congratulations on an amazing achievement - we're so proud of you.
Another amazing pupil of ours Layla has won all five races in the West Midlands Young Athletes Cross Country league and took the title to become under 11 girls overall champion. Layla also competes for Tipton Harriers! Well done Layla!
2019 was a bumper year of sporting success, winning that year’s local tag rugby, cross country, dodgeball, tri-golf and multi-skills competitions. We also went on to win two events at the prestigious Black Country Games, as well as the local football league for the first time in over a decade!
Our provision and commitment has enabled us to achieve the Silver Sportsmark accreditation this year and we are going for gold in 2020.
