Latest Fixtures and competitions

We've got another action packed year with lots of competitions during the academic school year 2022-2023. Over the course of the year pupils will be taking part in a number of different inter and intra school competitions as well as Kent School Games events. See below for Southborough's sports and fixtures.


Term 3 and 4 Fixtures at a Glance

Term 6

This term we continue to focus on our Sports Day preparation ready for Sports Day on Friday 23rd June. We will also continue with Cricket, Tennis and Rounders throughout the term. We are focusing on a number of different areas that will be integrated within the curriculum.  Pupils will be learning the importance of skills around striking and fielding as well as applying the correct shot whilst developing the ability to field and bowl a ball. In Athletics we'll focus on the ability to run at speed, learning how to 'pace' for distance as well as throwing with power and jumping for height and length. We will also be practicing our relays and correct procedure for relay handover during a race.  


Over the course of the year the pupils have followed a longer term curriculum plan allowing them to engage in a range of sports during curriculum time. The aim is to give a broad range of sports so every pupil has the opportunity to flourish with their skills and fitness and develop an understanding of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.


Sports are usually taught in advance of upcoming competitions to give pupils the opportunity to develop their skills and at certain times we'll provide a lunchtime preparation club run by the PE lead. Clubs also form part of the training for these competitions and allow us to select teams ready for the events.
