Extra-Curricular Clubs and Sports Schedule
We offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and sports at Furze Platt Senior School, encompassing academic, music, dramatic and sporting clubs.
In addition to the skills that are learnt through the Physical Education curriculum programme, students have the opportunity to play competitive sport in team games.
The main sports for girls are hockey, netball, badminton, football, athletics and tennis. Boys play rugby, football, cricket and athletics. Boys and girls compete against other schools in most of these sports. Our students also have access to the Furze Platt Leisure Centre with its 60 station fitness suite, all-weather pitches and courts, both during PE lessons and in after school clubs.
The skills for these games are learnt in the curriculum time, but the team practices takes place after school. The games themselves are mostly played after school. The school is fortunate in having the support of parents and staff dedicated to helping students learn from team games and competitions. Many students progress from school sports to play for local sporting clubs. We also encourage students to compete on a national basis through District and County competitions in all sports.
