JC6 has a proud and illustrious sporting history and offers all students the opportunity to excel in a wide range of physical activities. Students have the opportunity to compete locally and nationally and are inspired by former students such as Man Tualagi, Vicky Fleetwood, Julia Sawkins and David Eaton who have all gone on to compete at the highest level in their sport.
High quality teaching and coaching underpins both our curriculum and extracurricular offer. This expert direction allows students to make the most of their sporting talent or spark a new passion. Our PE team is made up of highly experienced partitioners, many of whom have competed at county, regional or even national level themselves. Staff welcome involvement from all students, not just those studying physical education.
The JC6 site boasts impressive sporting facilities, including 4 rugby pitches, 3 football pitches, sports hall with indoor cricket nets, gym, four tennis courts, sand based astro pitch, gym style changing rooms with underfloor heating, pay-as-you-go lockers, hair dryers and 52inch plasma screens and mirrored dance studio.
