Durham Trinity School and Sports College believes that Physical Education and school sport contributes to the totality of the educational experience of pupils. Physical Education provides a range of experiences that form the basis for lifelong sporting and recreational activity which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.
In this section of the website you will be able to see briefly what our pupils get up to in their curriculum P.E. lessons. To make it easier to navigate, we have divided the P.E. curriculum into Primary and Secondary headings. Have a look and see if you can spot anyone you know!

Pupils enjoyed indoor athletics, it offered them a rotational activity where each pupil could focus on their own performance but also working at their own pace and level of fitness. Pupils were given the opportunity to challenge themselves and record scores if they wished too and work with others in their group to help and encourage each other. Great work Alnwick class
Additional Physical Activities Session 2020
As part of additional timetabled sessions pupils have enjoyed learning about and taking part in new activities. We purchased Archery equipment and pupils have really enjoyed it. Archery is a very inclusive activity; it helps physical development and improves mental toughness and mindset. Archery boosts self-confidence and gives a sense of accomplishment. As pupils develop their skills and for those interested we can sign point them to local community clubs.
