Elmhurst has a full and varied programme for PE. The children get 2 curriculum sessions per week of a wide variety of games and athletics, also including gym and dance during the winter and swimming intervention in the summer at Greenbank pool.
We also have some very successful school teams and we endeavour to enter all of the local tournaments. Our football team play in the local schools league and have also qualified for the county schools final. We also play in the local school’s netball league.
Cross country is very well supported at the school and we have a large squad of children who compete each month in the Mendip Area Cross Country League.
We also have children regularly competing in biathlon and biathle and have qualified for the national school’s finals for the past 3 years. We also boast the current south-west school’s boys u10 biathle champion.
We also enter rounders, rugby, athletics (we are the current mini Olympic champions), cricket, cyclocross, badminton, tennis, hockey, swimming, gymnastics and trampolining.
These are subject to change though.
We have been a prominent force at the last 2 Somerset School Games and hope to continue this.
