We are incredibly proud of the breadth of sporting opportunity and extra-curricular clubs offered to children at St Thomas More’s every week. On average we run about 25 clubs a week across all age groups. We were also the first school in the District to be awarded the Gold Sports Mark Award in recognition for the breadth of sport on offer, the quality of coaching and training, and our level of competitive success!
We offer the children a variety of after school clubs which enrich the curriculum.
CM Sports work closely with teachers on Continuous Professional Development to ensure the best possible Physical Education curriculum is delivered to all children. Within our school every child has two hours of structured sport a week either with their class teacher or a CM sports coach. Within this children learn not only key fine and gross motor skills but the importance of sportsmanship and rules.
