A person’s attitude to sport and physical activity is often shaped by their experiences as a child or adolescent. Woodcreek schools’ programmes are founded on creating fun and positive learning experiences in skill acquisition and physical literacy.

Sport is a very important aspect of the school. It is an integral part in the life of the Woodcreek child. Sport is delivered co-educationally with a deliberate focus on the building of positive attitudes and mental attributes that will set our pupils in good stead for every aspect of school life and beyond. With these characteristics as our foundation, technical proficiency, tactical awareness and understanding are developed through a well-executed late specialisation model; guarding against the risk of burn-out, while allowing for breadth of experience and the growth of transferable skills at the start of a child’s time with us.

Competition plays an important part in the advancement of Woodcreek’s pupils and we work hard to provide the right competitive experience for everyone. We encourage our pupils to bring the independence, creativity and bravery learned through sport to bear on their studies and other aspects of school life. Sport at Woodcreek is not a barrier to academic achievement or to engagement with other interests. On the contrary, our pupils' sporting experience underpins their academic achievement and provides a platform from which they can explore new horizons with confidence.
