Sport


"There is a range of facilities including grass and hard-surface outdoor space with areas of soft landing. There is activity equipment available and the use is carefully monitored to ensure pupils’ safety."
(Ofsted 2016)


Queenswood School's sports development programme has helped to stimulate self-confidence and ensure that all children have the opportunity to take part in individual sports.

We have formed links with some local sporting groups who allow us access to their outside facilities for outdoor games. In addition school also uses a large hall for indoor games, and Morley Sports Centre for weekly swimming lessons.

Swimming

During the weekly swimming lessons at Morley Sports Centre, the children receive expert instruction by fully qualified coaches and have the opportunity to gain certificates and awards as they develop their skills.
