Healthy, active lifestyle
Royal Russell has an excellent reputation of sporting success in local, regional and national competitions, winning many major titles and trophies. Children demonstrating exceptional skills and sporting potential are quickly identified and placed in carefully designed development programmes which are monitored by our highly qualified teachers and specialist coaches, across the Junior and Senior School.
There is no doubt that Physical Education plays a vital role in a child’s development. The curriculum is designed to enable all children to participate in a wide range of activities in many varied environments thus enabling them to enhance their knowledge, understanding, and ability to apply physical skills.
Furthermore, the children are encouraged to work safely and independently, whilst learning to understand and appreciate the long-term benefits of regular physical activity on the body. This enables pupils to make informed decisions regarding adopting and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle outside of school.
