This year (2016-2017) we have competed in the following:

At Gillshill Primary School we are passionate about PE and the positive impact it can have on children throughout their learning journey and we see it as a great release for many children, offering them the freedom to express themselves through sport.


Led by Miss Jesney our PE Coordinator and assisted by Mr Start our PE Instructor, we deliver a minimum of 2 hours PE to each child per week.

We have regular feedback from our pupils who are on the School & PE Council, and our School Sports Organising (SSO) crew members, as to what new sports or games the children would like to try.  This year we are introducing Boccia and New Age Kurling.


Gillshill Primary School actively encourages children of all ages and abilities to participate in as many sports as possible and we aim to make sport a fun and enjoyable activity for all the children at our school.


Every child has the opportunity to participate in a wide and diverse range of sports in our PE curriculum and in order to reach as a wide a student base as possible, we offer both lunchtime and after-school clubs throughout the year.


The star performance of the year was undoubtedly the year 4 Outdoor Quad kids boys & girls athletic team. The team were magnificent in winning the Humber Games competition.

This year pupils will be able to take part in the following sports as part of our curriculum:

  • Athletics
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Hockey
  • Dance
  • Gymnastics
  • Cricket
  • Basketball
  • Netball

and games.


We continue to take part in the Sainsbury’s games programme at the following after school tournaments:

  • Football
  • Tag Rugby
  • Boccia
  • New Age Kurling
  • Cricket
  • Swimming
