Physical Education

At Leicester High Physical Education is based on a sport for all philosophy.

The range of sports and clubs offered is diverse, and the excellent facilities we use in school and at Leicester University, Saffron Lane athletics stadium, Leicestershire Lawn Tennis Club and Parklands Leisure ensure that the girls have a wide range of opportunities.

Netball is our largest team sport, with approximately 100 girls training in squads, playing many matches and tournaments throughout season. We also train and qualify older girls as umpires and coaches. The netball season includes a Netball Superclinic, where we have had England, international and Super League players coaching.

We run an annual singles and doubles Badminton Tournament in school. All year groups have access to Badminton clubs including specialised squad training. We participate in the Leicestershire Schools Badminton League, entering at U14, U16 and U18 age groups as well as the National Centre Parcs competition.

Tennis is offered in the summer, with Junior and Senior Clubs, and there is an annual LHS Tennis Tournament and we enter the national Aegon competition.

Athletics and rounders are also popular with many girls entering County level events and leagues.

Volleyball, gymnastics, circuits and fencing clubs are also offered, with good levels of participation.
