PE and Sport is an integral part of Noadswood life. We offer students the opportunity to experience a wide range of sports throughout their 5 years here in both curriculum and extra-curricular environments.
We offer a broad spectrum of sports in our curriculum which includes both games and aesthetic activities. Games include Basketball, Football, Rugby, Netball, Hockey and the aesthetic sports include Gymnastics and Dance. Many of the sports we offer have Noadswood representative teams to enhance learning and offer opportunities to play fixtures against schools across the New Forest and Hampshire.
Noadswood students benefit from some of the best school sports facilities in Hampshire. The success of our Rock Challenge, Gymnastic and Dance students stems from the fantastic gymnasium our enthusiastic staff work in. The continuing basketball success is a result of a sports hall with 8 hoops and a hard court area with 6 hoops for Noadswood students to play at during their free time. Our huge field with 4 pitches is superbly maintained by our own grounds man and makes the rugby and football lessons a joy to teach and allows fixtures to be played at a high standard on a weekly basis. The Astroturf pitch has made hockey Noadswood’s most improved sport. The ability of the students has increased at a faster rate than any other sport we teach and this is reflected in our hockey results against other schools.
The sport courses that we offer in Key Stage 4 are consistently popular. In the region of 50% of student each year subscribe to our accredited courses program and we consistently achieve strong results that are always above National benchmark figures. This is due to the dedication, enthusiasm and desire to achieve, that all the PE teachers have and coupled with the conscientious nature of Noadswood students its a thriving environment to be involved in.
