Sport plays a central role in the school's aims to encourage all our pupils to develop their potential by setting themselves the highest standards of excellence and achievement with integrity and confidence.
The school's broad range of sport activities provides students with a well-rounded, balanced education catering for a wide range of talents and interests and adds great enjoyment to students school life. We are committed to providing inclusive, challenging and enriching Physical Education and sporting opportunities, which promote high standards of performance and a positive attitude towards sport and physical activity for life, to inspire and motivate all our pupils to lead happy, purposeful and responsible lives.
We strive for national recognition across a wide range of sports and compete on a local, regional and national level, with a multitude of sports available and success achieved across the board. We also encourage our students to compete outside of school in order to gain an invaluable team and social experience. This enables both BWS and the clubs to benefit from a more knowledgeable, experienced and skilled pool of talent. Sport and physical activity provides an environment where we are able to learn most about ourselves and others.
Out on the playing fields, in a cave, out in the woods or half way up a rock face we often find ourselves doing things, thinking things and surprising ourselves like never before. Physical activity and developing a physical literacy stimulates not only the body but also the mind and facilitates a making of bonds with others that are not easily broken. Here lie some of the key reasons why physical activity is central to BWS, the building of skills, the building of friendships and the building of individuals motivated and determined to go out and enrich the world in which we all live.
In order to run the competitive program that we do at the level that we operate we rely on the support of not only our sponsors listed below, but also a contribution from those playing in the form of a Sports Sub. For 2020/21 we didn’t ask for any subs due to the lack of fixtures, but this system will come back into play for 2021/22 with a letter in September asking for your support which goes directly to your child’s chosen sport to include fixture costs including kit, transport, first aid, referees and teas, but also access to a physio who runs a weekly clinic and our ability to offer video analysis to our senior sides.
If you or your company would be interested in supporting sport as a whole or a specific sport please contact email@example.com
Students in the lower and middle school should wear the school PE/Games kit available from the school shop for all sports lessons. This kit is also available to the 6th Form as well. For those who make teams and/or start to train more throughout the week we realise a need for more sports kit. This may be in the form of plain navy generic sports clothing, or one of the option below.
Our teamwear supplier Tsunami run an online shop that delivers termly, the shop window opens for a window of two weeks and then closes to allow production and the lead time for delivery etc. The window for ordering opens 6-8 weeks proceeding the next term.
We also allow Team BWS branded items from local company DBA Sports. Please use the code FREESHIPPING.
Our reports and testing are based around not only skill development for our activities, but also the components of fitness and physical competencies in terms of how we move. Away from school it would be great to know our students are keeping their hand in or using the time to work on their targets from the reporting process. Please see the below MS Streams links created by the department.
We have made a bank of resources and links to activities that can be done at home and with minimal equipment or people. We will keep updating as we find more and we will add to our twitter feeds as well. Enjoy.
We welcome parental support, particularly on a Saturday with block rugby fixtures. If you would be willing to take a team or are able to referee please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
