Our PE Faculty review the Summer 2019 term of sport

It has been a busy term for Summer sport and we have been really pleased with the number of pupils attending clubs and practices and representing the school in a variety of sporting fixtures and competitions.

Our Summer season began with Deer Park hosting the District Athletics trials on Tuesday 7 May 2019, with 12 local secondary schools taking part. Congratulations to the athletes who finished in the top 2 positions of their event and made it onto the Stroud & Cotswold District team, which  competed at the Gloucestershire County Championships on 8 June.

The Rounders season was hit hard by poor weather and a number of games were cancelled. The Year 7 and Year 8 Rounders teams won their District Tournament, which meant they were due compete at the County Finals at Hartbury. Unfortunately, the County Finals event was also cancelled due to poor weather but congratulations to both teams for getting through.



Like the Rounders, the Cricket season was hit hard by poor weather. Congratulations to all pupils who trained and participated in the fixtures.



A number of inter-school games were played this season and Mr Schlaefli was pleased with the numbers at training. Special mention to the Year 7 Girls team who won 8-2 against TK.



On Wednesday 5 June, our Year 7 and Year 8 (new Year 8 and new Year 9) athletes travelled to TK for a District Athletics event. Both our Year 7 Boys and Year 8 Boys Athletics teams finished as District Champions - fabulous news! The Girls teams also did really well, with our Year 7 Girls finishing 2nd and Year 8 Girls finishing 6th. Congratulations to all! Read more...

National School Sport Week

Week commencing Monday 24 June 2019 was National School Sport Week, focusing on showing how PE and sport have an essential role in every young person's development. We all know that physical activity can positively affect mental wellbeing, as well having a positive impact on our physical selves.

In addition to the Inter Tutor Group Tennis Tournament and the Inter Tutor Group Rounders Tournament, we had a number of external providers in school. Thanks to funding from The Friends of Deer Park and the generosity of local sports providers, our pupils had the opportunity to try different sports in their PE lessons during the week. Your child may have the opportunity to play Handball, do Judo or Taekwondo, work with a Personal Trainer, or be coached in Football or Table Tennis. Anything that encourages young people to continue existing or take up new sport should definitely be celebrated!
