Physical Education

Physical Education plays a significant role here at Orley Farm and is represented by specialist teachers in our department.

We strive to:

  • give every pupil the opportunity to enjoy and participate in a wide range of sporting activities to the best of their ability in order to prolong lifelong participation by creating an environment where pupils of all abilities can achieve success
  • develop skills, knowledge and understanding of a wide range of sporting activities
  • promote a healthy lifestyle and maintain physical fitness by providing lessons that enable pupils to develop socially, morally, culturally and spiritually

In the Pre-Prep, pupils are exposed two 30-minute lessons per week, both of which are taught by specialists in our department. In the summer term an outside swimming coach takes the pupils for a third lesson. The breadth of study encompasses ball skills, gymnastics, athletics and swimming.

In Middle School, pupils are exposed to one 45-minute lesson per week, taught by a specialist in our department. The breadth of study encompasses ball skills, gymnastics, athletics and swimming.

In Upper School, pupils are exposed to one 45-minute lesson per week, taught by a specialist in our department. The breadth of study encompasses ball skills, basketball, badminton, fitness, gymnastics, volleyball, athletics and swimming.
