Lessons are taught in keeping with the National Curriculum and all children have the opportunity to take part in skills acquisition, gymnastics, dance and team sports such as cricket, basketball, handball and football. It is also a requirement of the National Curriculum for children to learn to swim; in years 3 & 4, pupils attend lessons once a week for a term at Brixton Recreation Centre Pool where they learn to swim 25 metres. We also participate in a number or inter-school competitions and events.
