Sporting activities

Sports play a big part of daily life at Mark College, however we recognise that students with dyspraxia in particular, might have issues with PE. We have an alternative PE curriculum which is specifically designed to build young people’s confidence and self-esteem with sporting activities. Students are able to start on the alternative PE curriculum until they feel confident to take part in the regular PE curriculum. Our on-site sporting facilities include:

  • Large sports hall
  • Two large sports fields
  • Two tennis courts
  • Basketball courts

Students also regularly access community-based facilities, including a local swimming pool, and take part in inter-school sports competitions.
