P. E. and sport play a very important role in the daily programme for every St Hugh’s pupil; for general skills, health and fitness and also for the fun and sportsmanship that active participation and successful competition can bring.

The aim of the P.E. programme is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle by involving the children in a broad and varied range of sports and activities. Creativity is also nurtured, fostering independent learning and the ability to work alongside others. A sense of fair play and graciousness in victory and defeat is encouraged.

The timetable allows boys and girls to be involved in Physical Education and Games sessions 5 to 6 times a week.

P.E. lessons are fully co- educational and are varied to allow the children to experience different sports and activites.
