At the Hart school we believe that Physical Education helps students stay physically active, develop interests in different types of physical activity, build teamwork and other social skills, and improve focus and academic performance. We want to instill the passion for sport and exercise throughout their different pathways here in school. In order to ensure that their transition from each key stage will be a smooth as possible, and we aim to equip our students with the skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable them to maintain their passion for sport once they leave. The Hart school has excellent enrichment activities which allows students to experience outdoor activities as well as many sports. We also offer an extensive extra curricular programme which you can view below.
