Sport is considered so much more than just physical exercise here at Shoreham. We believe that by participating in sport, children learn valuable life skills: teamwork, commitment, reliability and leadership.
All pupils are given the equal opportunity to participate in a broad and balanced range of activities. We make it enjoyable for the children, helping to increase their self-confidence and giving them a feeling of achievement. We aim to instil in the children a lifelong enjoyment of physical activity and promote good health.
We are lucky to have excellent sports facilities: expertly tended outdoor pitches for football, rugby, rounders and cricket; tennis and netball courts; a huge indoor facility and our own heated swimming pool.
Our PE staff are passionate and supportive and help all children reach their individual potential. We have nurtured many talented children to enjoy great success both individually and in college teams, competing at local, regional and national level within a wide range of sports.
Shoreham College is very proud to have had an increasing impact in sporting events in recent years, testament not only to the ability and commitment of the children but the ambition of the PE department and college as a whole.
There is a very extensive range of sports fixtures in football, netball, rugby, rounders and cricket with local independent and state schools; this gives pupils the opportunity to apply what they have learnt in lessons and after school clubs.
