Here at Luckley we offer a broad and engaging curriculum where all individuals can achieve. We believe that all pupils who leave Luckley should have a good understanding of what it means to be healthy and what it means to lead a healthy active lifestyle.
The aim of good Physical Education is to develop the athletic potential of every young person, enabling elite performances and encouraging success and confidence for all.
Our focus on the five areas below enables our pupils to do this within a safe and secure environment, where they can develop the confidence to express themselves.
Within lessons we encourage pupils in five different areas:
Developing tactical and strategic thinkers.
Developing teamwork, communication and discipline.
Developing creative thinkers.
Developing psychomotor skills through activities such as fundamental skills, outwitting opponents, physical challenge and health related fitness.
Healthy Active Lifestyle
Developing an understanding of all components of fitness and training methods.
We can offer activities at both a recreational and competitive level, with an abundance of opportunities available to all. Below is a list of activities covered in lessons and within the extended day programme:
Aerobics, Adventure trail, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, CCF (combined cadet forces), Climbing, Cricket, Cross country, Dance, Duke of Edinburgh award, Fitness, Football, Gymnastics, Handball, Hockey, Horse riding, Martial arts, Polo, Rounders’ Swimming, Tag rugby, Tennis, Trampolining, Tri golf, Volleyball, Wide games, Yoga.
Through all the above, our goal is to encourage and help your child to commit to, and sustain, a balanced healthy active lifestyle once they leave Luckley and move on to the next phase of their life.
Our sports facilities consist of a large Sports Centre, extensive playing fields, cross country tracks, netball and tennis courts, a fully equipped fitness room, 2 full size trampolines, a dance studio and full size climbing wall.

We have developed our new Athlete Development Programme (ADP) to help our pupils become the best
versions of themselves that they can be in sport. It is aimed at our scholars and pupils who demonstrate sporting promise.
Our Junior and Senior programmes are tailored to the needs of each pupil – and include strength and conditioning, functional movement patterns, flexibility training, physical literacy as well as sport-specific skills training. Training sessions are run by Mr Nate Standing, our Graduate Sports Assistant.
Alongside the practical sessions, the ADP includes a year-long programme of workshops ranging from dealing with pressure, a balanced diet, goal-setting and getting the best out of yourself.
The programme also empowers our senior pupils to become mentors for our lower ADP and this is organised by Mr Humphrey.
Pupils represent their Houses in Gymnastics, Netball, Football, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Tennis, Rounders and Athletics. House Sports Events feature every term. There is always great excitement and delight at competing at these events, often with a close fought battle across the four school Houses.
Pupils compete in frequent weekday fixtures against local schools as well as in District and County tournaments. An annual sports tour to Spain is especially popular!
We are proud to celebrate personal success stories of pupils competing at national level in a range of sports, including karate, rock climbing, show jumping, rowing and polo. We have pupils who perform in dance and gymnastics shows out of school and many belong to and represent clubs at local, regional or county level.
A Sports Scholarship is available for Year 7, 9 and 12 entry. Our Sports Scholars receive a discount on school fees.
