It’s not all work and no play

We see sport and physical education as an essential component in education and development. It helps children to remain healthy, develop leadership skills and understand the value of teamwork and co-operation. All children take part in physical education lessons.

Infants have two one-hour PE lessons a week. The Juniors also have two hours with the opportunity to get involved in a further two hours extra curricular activity through Sportslink. The school also has the benefit of an extra half an hour physical activity per week for all pupils in Years 1 to 6 delivered by a qualified coach.

Top quality facilities

We have the use of an excellent range of neighbouring facilities, including King David’s pool and Liverpool Hope University for Sports Day. Calderstones Park is also used for cross country training and David Campbell Soccer School football sessions.

Our youngsters make a splash

Junior classes have swimming lessons and children are prepared for various Swimming Awards under the supervision of the fully qualified swimming teachers and coaches.

Competitive edge

Carleton House is affiliated to all the local schools’ sporting associations and a wide variety of games are played in the school and at inter-school level including: football, cricket, netball, rounders, swimming, athletics and cross-country.

New skills

In Years 5 and 6 students are given the opportunity to have taster sessions in sports such as fencing and to undertake cycling training.
New sports are being introduced all the time to the extra curricular activities e.g. golf, tag rugby, basketball and high fives netball.
