PE & Sport

At Bute House our aim is to foster a love of Physical Education (PE) through pupils experiencing the enjoyment of learning new physical skills, playing competitive sports, and developing their own expression through gymnastics and movement. 

Students at Bute are taught the value of training and keeping fit and generally living a healthy life-style. To promote positive attitudes they are taught the importance of fair play and honest competition and the ability to cope with success and failure. The pupils are encouraged to perform to the very best of their ability and to work as a team to improve both personal and team performance.

Bute House is very fortunate to have access to all its sports facilities on site. As such, all girls have access to the PE curriculum as part of their normal school day. They are also encouraged to take part in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, which include netball, swimming, gymnastics, cross country, football, tennis, athletics, rounders and cricket. 

We aim to be as inclusive as possible while providing opportunities for students to pursue their sporting interests and to achieve their full potential. The girls enjoy regular sports fixtures against other schools and they also compete successfully at regional and national level.
