The school
Wilsthorpe School is a high-performing academy that is well on the path to becoming an outstanding school. Everyone in the school believes in our journey of improvement and shares common goals.

Physical Education at Wilsthorpe has long been a driving force in the curriculum. The school has a deep belief in the importance of the subject and the opportunities it provides young people. This belief extends way beyond health and fitness, embracing qualities like leadership, independence, respect, resilience, empathy and excellence.

PE teachers are very strong practitioners and many lead learning through ‘open classrooms’ and ‘teachmeets’. This is one reason results have been outstanding for several years. Students at KS4 have the opportunity to study GCSE PE, with a Level 3 qualification offered as part of our successful Post 16.

Facilities are enviable. Our new build in 2016 ensured state-of-the-art spaces and provision. We have newly built gymnasium with changing rooms, existing sports hall, fitness suite, newly built tennis and netball courts, a full sized astroturf pitch and extensive fields.

As you might have guessed, successes in competitions are numerous.
