Our purpose is to offer a high quality physical education that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel through competitive sport and physical activity. Alongside this we look to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of health and fitness and the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. PE plays a large part in developing the schools core values of community, honesty, respect, resilience, acceptance, trust, responsibility and aspiration.
Physical education and school sport play a huge role in the life and culture of The Park Community School dating back to the original Grammar School years. We have an enviable array of well-maintained pitches and sports facilities including a full size, floodlit artificial pitch, a floodlit netball/tennis complex comprising of six courts and a gymnasium, sports hall and weights room.
