Physical education (PE) is an enjoyable and appreciated subject here at St. Leonards. The children here are exposed and given access to learn a range of skills across a number of sports. Each class has two PE lessons per a week. One session being led by a team of highly trained professional sports coaches from Premier sports. Our sports coaches teach a range of sports such as football and gymnastics which is taught through a range of progressive skill based lessons. Additionally, years 4 and 5 have weekly swimming lessons throughout the year and Years 6 have their swimming lessons during the summer term in the school calendar.
