High School Sport
Saturday Club and Flames Basketball Academy
Our Saturday training continues to grow, with nearly 150 students attending each Saturday to develop their basketball skills. There is a great atmosphere at the weekend and it’s a real pleasure to coach our amazing STA ballers and watch their progress.
If you’d like your child to be a part of this training, please contact Mr. Ollie (firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com). It’s never too late to start the journey!
U13 Girls Football
Due to popular demand, we have now started U13G Football on a Saturday morning. If you’d like your daughter to join, please email Mr. Ollie (firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com) .
As an addendum to last week’s update, we’re planning our annual House Sports Days for this term. To accommodate the large numbers in school, we’ll again have split days for all Year groups as follows:
- 27 February: Year 7
- 28 February: Year 8
- 8 March: Year 10
- 9 March: Year 9
This means that everyone will participate in a full athletics programme. In keeping with our approach to offer non-competitive roles, there will be a limited number of marshall places available for those who would rather help organise than compete.
U13 FOBISIA Games
Training resumes this week and continues until we leave for Phuket. If your child is part of the team, please try to ensure that they are present for all Friday training sessions. Thank you.
We’re pleased to see so many students engage in extra-curricular sport in addition to the hundreds who train as part of a Flames or Marlins squad. Together with our options programme in PE - whereby some students select which activities they engage in and the emphasis is on recreational participation and independence - we feel this is a positive indicator of the approach of St Andrews students to engaging in a healthy, active lifestyle.
We have non-selective activities in all of our major sports: football, basketball, swimming, tennis. There is also yoga, table tennis, rock climbing and fitness, providing a broad range of activities to suit all tastes.
We’re pleased to see BASE continue to offer functional fitness training to students, staff and parents alike. They are now running two sessions for staff, two for parents, two for our elite athletes and two ECAs per week. If you’d like to get involved (either you or your child), please email Mr. Ollie (firstname.lastname@example.org).
