Physical Education and Sport plays a big role in the daily life of Samuel Ryder Academy. Our belief is that sport has a major influence on our country through participation, spectating, officiating etc. Through a 'sport for all' philosophy we aim to satisfy the needs of all students but provide the challenge for those who require it. Our ultimate aim is to provide our students with the skills, knowledge and desire to exercise regularly so they can reap the benefits of a healthy active lifestyle.
We offer a broad and balanced range of opportunities both within the curriculum and out of school hours. There is something for everyone in the Physical Education department whether they want to be part of a team, play recreationally or just socialise with friends.
We have competitive school teams that play at a County and District level in football, basketball, cricket, netball, badminton, athletics and rounders.
