Sports Fixtures and Clubs
Physical Education at Kinver High School is so much more than taking part in sport and playing games. The PE department pride ourselves on providing ALL of our students with the opportunity to experience activities and experiences that provide life long memories. We feel that is it vital to develop our students as people and promote positive values through a vast array of enrichment opportunities. We feel that the experiences we offer allow our students to learn how to develop personal skills that range from improving self-discipline and developing empathy to cultivating self-esteem and confidence.
Lunchtimes Clubs & Recreational Play
At Kinver High School all students, irrelevant of perceived ability and experience, have the opportunity to take part in a variety of extra-curricular activities. Each lunchtime we offer a number of teacher led clubs and practices that allow students to refine the skills that they have learnt in lesson. We have also recently developed our ‘recreational’ offerings at break time so that students can use the sports facilities and equipment in a less structured way which is a great opportunity for our students to work on their communication skills as well as honing their skills, with their friends in a relaxed but supportive environment.
Throughout the year all students will have the opportunity to take part in inter house competitions in a variety of traditional and non-traditional sports. This is a more competitive environment but supports less experienced students in their transition to excelling in various sporting environments. Inter house matches are a great chance for our students to represent their houses with pride whilst promoting fair play and sportsmanship.
The summer term at Kinver High School ends with the well-known and well regarded ‘Calvalcade’ Sports day. All students in the school get the chance to represent their house in a variety of different activities during the morning session. In the afternoon the best athletes from each house go head to head on the athletics track so that they can get the final few house points on offer in an attempt to claim the coveted ‘Allen Cup’.
Whittington are the current champions; we are very much looking forward to hosting this great day again to see if they can be dethroned.
At Kinver High School we also offer a plethora of competitive after school fixtures for all age groups against other secondary schools. This level of sport really stretches and challenges the students at Kinver and gives them the opportunity to test themselves against the best athletes in the local area. We have regular matches and tournaments in the following sports: Football, Cricket, Rugby, Netball, Basketball, Tennis, Athletics, Rounders to name but a few!
Kinver High School are proud members of the Invictus Education Trust. We are very lucky to be able to give our students the opportunity to take part in ‘Elite’ sporting experiences alongside students from other schools from across Invictus. These activities provide our students with the chance to take part in many sports that are seen to be inaccessible which makes the experience even more special. So far, our students have been able to take part in Clay Pigeon Shooting, Scuba Diving, Track Cycling, Mountain Biking, Fishing, Archery and many more. Our students also get the chance to take part in 3 ‘Invictus Games’ events each year. During these events our students compete against students from the other Invictus Schools. They are very competitive days, but they are also great fun with all fixtures and activities being played in a really good spirit.
