Sporting excellence at Scarisbrick Hall School

Sporting activities are an essential part of life here at Scarisbrick Hall School. We place a strong emphasis on sporting excellence, however we encourage children of all abilities to participate, progress and compete. Every single pupil from First School through to Sixth Form is encouraged to enjoy a recreational interest in individual or team games to help them to develop a healthy relationship with health and fitness. 

Our main focus is teaching pupils a broad, balanced sports programme that is tailored to each of their individual needs. This kind of sports coaching helps our students to achieve a lifelong passion for physical activity and sport whilst promoting confidence, health and wellbeing. A comprehensive programme of physical and creative activities complements our philosophy and encourages all pupils to try something new and develop their talent.
