Sport

The aim of the sports department at Moreton First is that every child experiences the enjoyment of playing sport whilst developing expertise.

Outstanding sporting opportunities are provided for every pupil from the most competitive team player to the amateur enthusiast.

Pupils benefit from a daily timetabled lesson of sport with afternoons of Games on Monday and Thursday. Through the Moreton First extensive activities programme there are opportunities to develop skills further. Individual coaching sessions are available in all sports. Specialist PE teachers coach all core sports: Hockey (girls & boys), Lacrosse, Football, Tag Rugby, Netball, Swimming, Cricket, Tennis and Dance.

A gymnastics club - school link has been formed with Borders Counties Gym which will enable all key stage one children to experience gymnastics in the curriculum and also as an after school club. 

The competitive schedule offers a variety of fixtures that are arranged with Prep Schools which gives children the opportunity to represent the school. Parents are encouraged, when possible, to support these events and enjoy a postmatch tea with staff.
