Physical Education

‘My favourite thing about Queen’s Gate is fencing. I like fencing because you get to go to competitions. It’s also good for your muscles.’ Rania, IA (Year 3)

Physical Education plays an important part in our curriculum and in extracurricular activities. We make full use of the gym in the Senior School building for lessons and for Gym Club. Before and after school clubs are on offer and include rock climbing, cross country, dance and yoga. Swimming takes place at Fulham Pools and Imperial College, and netball, hockey, athletics, tennis and rounders take place at Battersea Park. We regularly have fixtures against other schools. Our annual swimming gala and sports day are inter-House competitions. In addition we make full use of Kensington Gardens for free play with younger pupils, and for Games lessons throughout the year.
