The Trust puts a high value on the role that sport plays in a child's learning and development.
In addition to the two hours of PE that are delivered by both the class teacher and a specialist teacher each week, extra-curricular sport is a key feature of Malcolm Arnold Preparatory School.
As part of the David Ross Education Trust, pupils from MAPS are able to take part in the DRET Primary Winter and Summer Cup which a festival of competitive sport for our primary pupils. This is attended by Olympians and elite athletes who then also spend time in our school inspiring and motivating children to get active and enjoy the health benefits of this.
Children at MAPS are able to take part in house sporting competitions, sports days, sports clubs, inter-trust competitions and county competitions too.
Pupils at MAPS also have access to a wide range of sporting events and opportunities as we are lucky to share Malcolm Arnold Academy’s outstanding sports facilities.
