Sports clubs have been popular this year. From September we have had badminton and cross country for both boys and girls. The Autumn term for boys was predominately Rugby and Girls’ netball. The girls’ also had the opportunity to try a girls’ football and rugby club. We were not able to run Hockey as we were waiting for the Astro turf to be resurfaced.
For the spring term boys are currently being offered football and Year 7 & 8 boys’ hockey. Year 9, 10 & 11 boys’ hockey will start on Tuesday 23rd March. The girls can attend netball, hockey, football, and rugby. There are designated evenings in the fitness suite for year 9, 10 & 11 boys and girls.
In the Summer term we hope to offer athletics, tennis, cricket, and rounders.
We are lucky to have some great role models in year 10 and 11 who give up their own time to come and help coach and umpire at year 7 and 8 practices. Clubs are led by our Sport Health and Fitness teachers and also experienced outside coaches for football, badminton and tennis clubs.
Our fixtures in the first term are mainly netball and rugby, term two is hockey, cross country and football and term three is rounders, cricket, and athletics. We also take part in tennis tournaments.
Penair is part of the Peninsula Sports Partnership which includes 11 secondary schools in our area. This allows us to play league games once a week and take part and help run festivals to encourage participation.
We also enter county tournaments and cup competitions in many of the sports.
Cross Country Achievements:

In the Autumn term both the U14 and U16 girls’ netball teams qualified for the finals with U16’s finishing 3rd.
The U16 girls reached the Semi finals in their county hockey tournament in October.
The U13 boys made it to the final of their County Hockey tournament and finished runners up, qualifying for the regional round at Millfield School to be held later this term. We wish them the best of luck.
