Sporting Activities at HJS!

Hamstead has a long tradition of intra and inter school sports. Over the academic year, children may take part in inter-house matches or competitions. Some pupils may be selected to represent the school in different sporting competitions against other local Sandwell schools. These may include football, basketball, athletics, Boccia and cross country.

We want all of our children to be active and enjoy physical activity. Our aim is that all of our children will be offered the chance to join either a lunchtime or after school sporting club within the year. These clubs are often led by Sports Plus coaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. 

Year 5 pupils attend Swimming sessions during their PE curriculum to provide opportunity to develop water confidence and safety and also to develop swimming strokes.
