Our mission is to stimulate a lifelong love of learning and of sport by creating an environment in which students will learn to lead a healthy and active lifestyle which will benefit them as they move through life.
The Physical Education Department develops self-esteem, dignity, health/fitness, resilience and respect through participation not only in lessons but as representatives and ambassadors of the school. Physical Education is crucial to pupil development; it can contribute to spiritual, moral, cultural and most importantly physical development.
At Prince William School you will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sporting activities but most importantly you will learn to lead a healthy and active lifestyle which will benefit you as you move through life.
The Physical Education Department offers good facilities. In addition to large fields consisting of two football and one rugby pitch, there is a well-equipped Sports Hall, a full sized astro-turf and 4 outdoor netball courts. The changing rooms, with showers and heated floor, house a designated PE classroom as well as a fully equipped fitness suite. Opportunities exist for students to enjoy a range of sporting activities throughout the curriculum. There is a strong fixture-list for Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Football, Rounders and Cricket. Many students also participate in other sports such as Athletics, Rowing, Gymnastics, Tennis, Badminton and much more.
