Sport

Developing character and resilience – good for the mind, body and spirit.

At Berkhamsted Girls we understand that physical exercise is good for the mind, body and spirit.

The numerous benefits of Sport at Berkhamsted Girls include:

–Building confidence

–Developing character and resilience

–Encouraging sport as a way of life, for lifelong participation

–Reducing stress and pressure

–Encouraging determination, goal-setting and motivation

Sport also requires memorisation, repetition and learning – all of which benefit our pupils academically.

Specialist Sport Teachers

Berkhamsted’s PE Department consists of specialist teachers who provide expert teaching and coaching, before, during and after school. In addition, we employ a number of external coaches to support our sport programmes.

Impressive numbers of pupils represent the school each week in various sports and all pupils are encouraged to be involved in competitive sport at the appropriate level.
