Our aim is to encourage a genuine enthusiasm in physical activity to maintain girls' participation throughout their lives.
Physical Education at The Mount covers such a broad range of sports and activities that every girl is certain to find her niche and that is exactly what we want!
We encourage involvement in both recreational and competitive activities. Hockey and netball are played to a high standard with girls reaching regional, county and district standards. We also compete in tennis, rounders, cross country, athletics, biathlon and swimming.
In addition to the sports mentioned, we offer gymnastics, dance, volleyball, pop lacrosse, cricket, football, trampolining, badminton and the use of personal training equipment.
Girls can choose Physical Education GCSE and A-Level which enables those who enjoy sport to follow it in greater depth. These broad-based courses cover theory and written work as well as practical performance. Students learn how to train fitness and officiate in a game, and look at different teaching styles and methods of practice.
