P.E. at Howdenburn

Physical Education is taught by PE specialist Mr Thomson. Throughout the year the PE programme offers a wide range of activities such as hockey, rugby, gymnastics, social dance, creative dance, netball, basketball, athletics and many more. Each year group follows a different programme of activities so that by the time they have left school they have a wealth on knowledge and understanding from a variety of sporting areas. PE is part of Health & Wellbeing in Curriculum for Excellence.

The school has excellent facilities for this subject with a large games hall and vast playing fields in the school grounds.

The school follows strict guidelines with regards clothing and jewellery. Pupils must come prepared to participate with gym shoes or trainers (indoor and outdoor depending on activity and weather), shorts and a t-shirt. A policy of no jewellery is in place at all times as a safety precaution. Pupils are encouraged to bring water bottles with them so that they stay hydrated during lessons.
