Sports

Coopersale Hall has an inclusive sports programme to involve as many children as possible in a wide variety of sports activities. This helps children develop healthy lifestyles where teamwork and fair play are valued. The sports teams that represent Coopersale Hall School achieve regular local, regional and national success.

Physical Education is used to develop our pupils’ competence and confidence, and to encourage creativity. It promotes physical skills, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. The pupils are also taught about the importance of having positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.

Team Selection

Coopersale Hall runs many teams, including cross country running, athletics, netball, football, swimming and tag rugby. Our teams are selected based on pupil achievement and we are proud of our sporting reputation as a school. Where appropriate we also run ‘B’ teams so that we can give as many pupils as possible the opportunity to represent the school.

We organise many in-house competitions such as cross country running, swimming and athletics, giving every student the experience of competitive sporting events.
