The Perse School


Learning to move with precision and power

Extensive games fields and an all-weather pitch provide excellent facilities for competitive sport. Most training and fixtures take place during curriculum time, as part of our PE and games programme, and there are also opportunities for the teams to train together after school.

We take part in the key national tournaments, and over the past two years our Year 6 sides have qualified for the IAPS National Finals in boys’ hockey (twice), football (twice), and netball. In 2017, the U11 boys’ hockey side came third in the country and the U11 football side finished fifth. Each year we run a mixed international hockey tour.

We offer a good range of popular lunchtime and after-school sports clubs. These include a table tennis club coached by an ex-England international coach, martial arts including taekwondo and kung fu, running, multi-sports, triathlon and football (for both girls and boys).

After school ballet classes aim to instil correct technique in a fun and imaginative way, while there are lunchtime lessons in jazz and street dance and an after-school opportunity for the youngest pupils to take part in an aerobic dance club. A fun disco on Friday lunchtime rounds off the week.

Many pupils are members of sports and dance clubs outside school, and achieve considerable success at high level. We regularly have county cricketers, hockey players in the Cambridgeshire Junior Development Centre (Elite Performance), table tennis national finalists, tennis champions and triathletes in our pupil body.
