School sport is a hugely important and integral part of the curriculum and school life at St Wystan’s. High quality sport has a very powerful impact on the all-round development of children as it boosts achievement, builds essential communication and leadership skills and teaches the importance of healthy, active lifestyles.
St Wystan’s have been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for the last 3 years and punches above its weight in many traditional sports when competing against other schools, with pupils representing the school at a national level.
It is our aim that all St Wystan’s children will have the chance to compete for their house and school in different sports. There are many Sports and Activity Clubs before school, lunchtime and after school. Examples of extra-curricular activities are: Netball, Football, Tag Rugby, Hockey, Cricket, Rounders, Boccia, Curling, Cycling, Goalball, Gymnastics and Athletics.
St Wystan’s children are also encouraged to take part in clubs and activities outside school. This is recognised and celebrated in school assemblies and in class.
