Physical education and participation in sport is an intrinsic part of the education offered at Reading School

The PE Department aims to inspire each student to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle throughout his life, and the PE curriculum helps every boy to develop a broad range of skills essential to life beyond Reading School. 

These are based on six key processes:

  • Physical literacy
  • Knowledge of health and fitness
  • Physical and mental resilience
  • Reflectiveness
  • Resourcefulness
  • Leadership

Throughout the year, the PE Department also run a wide variety of competitive fixtures with other local schools, and a programme of inter-house competitions within school.  To keep up to date with this part of School life, including information about fixtures and results, please  Thanks to William Clennell who set up the site.
