The Sports Department recognises the importance of sport and the benefits this has to all students at Lutterworth High school. Sport can be transformational for all students, changing their lives for the better, providing them with strong characteristic traits, ready for the world of they are about to face.
All students are encouraged to take part in the sporting co-curricular opportunities on offer.
Students work towards a 50 tie, which is awarded to the student after competing in 50 competitive fixtures across all sports. Elite sports students are identified in years' 9, 10 and 11 to form an ‘Elite Club’ who meet each half term to discuss their progress and sporting ambitions. Inclusive sport, boccia and seated volleyball is offered to students who we feel will benefit from these activities.
All students have the potential to become excellent Sports Leaders. We recognise the significant impact this can have on the students' overall confidence. Students in Years' 9 and 10 have the option to be part of the nationally recognised Sports Leadership Level 1 and Level 2 course.
As part of the students' sporting journeys, we believe, what happens off the pitch is as significant as to what happens on it. Here students can create positive lifelong memories and friendships.
As well as fixtures we offer evenings out to celebrate students success. A Sports Curry Evening, Sports Dinner, Netball Dinner and Rugby Dinner are offered each year. In Years' 9 and 10, sport students are also offered the opportunity to tour internationally during the school's Activity Week.
