Sport & PE

SportOur federation is rich in sporting tradition and encourages the children to participate in all sports.


St Cuthbert’s has been awarded the Gold School Games Award and Fountains Earth currently holds the Silver School Games Award. These awards recognise our participation in competitive sporting events through the Harrogate Sports Parnership, the range of after school clubs we offer and the way in which physical education is taught in school.

Physical Education

Physical Education takes place twice a week and all children participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor sports.  Both schools have large sports fields where a variety of sport such as the annual sports day, rounders, athletics, running and much more takes place. In Key Stage Two, both schools come together for PE on Wednesday afternoons.


Swimming sessions take place throughout the year at Nidderdale Leisure Centre where they are coached by trained instructors.  The children work towards recognised swimming awards and take place in swimming galas. The pool is a short walk from St Cuthbert’s and a short ride from Fountains Earth.

Extra-curricular sports

The children have the opportunity to take part in a wider selection of sports, outside the curriculum, provided by specialist trained teachers and coaches throughout the week.  Sports clubs are hosted in both schools and can be accessed from children at either school.

Competitive Sports

Children take part in a variety of competitions in school within the Harrogate partnership throughout the year. Our children participate as separate schools and increasingly as a Federation team. For more information about the Harrogate Sports Partnership.
