Clubs & Sports

Sports and physical activity are a key part of the week at Calstock school. We value the strength, confidence and independence that sports, games, and active play bring to our children. PE is a valued part of the curriculum.

Our afterschool clubs (netball, football, athletics, cross country) are well attended, and for some the annual sports day is the highlight of the year! For a small school we (metaphorically) punch above our weight! Our cricket team won the county championship in 2016, and attended the regional finals in Bristol. Our athletics team came second in the area sports league, seeing off competition from schools three times our size.

But we also value the gentler arts, and encourage children to take a rounded perspective on physical activity: Over the past year we have offered practice in yoga to keystage 1 children, and keystage 2 children will begin in the new year. We have also begun an orienteering club – giving children the skills to explore the fantastic wild spaces on our doorstep.

Parents and the wider community are the key to our success. In recent years parents have helped organise clubs and other activities in basketball, yoga, athletics and many others.
