Enrichment in Sports

After school PE is a strong feature of the school. Students take part in local competitions such at the Delta Games, School Games competitions, and Five Towns local events and play regular fixtures against other schools. We enter Cup competitions in most traditional sports, such as rugby league, cross-country, football and netball.  We continue to offer a yearly sports day and combine this with a public service function as students raise money for a charitable cause. 

We are passionate about introducing students to sports that they may not normally get the opportunity to access. We have partnered with a local golf club to allow students access to a golf coach, as well as giving students experience of wheelchair basketball, which we incorporate into our sports day. We have bought resources for Tchoukball, Rock-It ball and Frisbee as well as offering ALL students a block of inclusive sports, such as Boccia and new age curling.

We have excellent facilities boasting 2 gymnasiums, a sportshall, fitness suite as well as a large amount of outdoor pitches and courts.  We also have a brand new 3G pitch.

These are some of the sporting enrichment opportunities available here at De Lacy Academy
