Sport is a strong element of school life at St Ignatius and is an important part of a child’s education. It encourages sportsmanship, self discipline and dedication, and helps children to view sport as an integral part of a happy and healthy life.
In addition to our Physical Education curriculum we aim to provide as many extra-curricular sporting activities as possible for boys and girls. These change term-by-term, and cover a range of sports. The school also takes part in a number of inter school competitions. We strive to do our very best to win and are often very successful but it is even more important to teach the virtues of good grace in victory or defeat and the value of building character as we compete.
Each summer sports afternoons are organised for KS1 and KS2 and parents are invited to come along.
Swimming lessons, at Ossett Academy swimming pool, take place once a week for year 4 and 5 children.

On Monday the 18th of September, the boys in Years 4, 5 and 6 had a football tournament. As the head boy and girl, we were asked to interview the team.
Finlay, the team`s captain, said this: “It was a good match – all the matches were challenging, we didn’t lose one game but sadly we didn’t get enough wins to get to the finals. We had a good team and we tried our best and so did the other teams; it was a real challenge. In the first match, we did ok with a great come back by Mason Dwyer.”
We also interviewed the top goal scorer, Mason Dwyer: “I think the game was challenging, but if it wasn’t for Theo, Noah and the rest of the team, we wouldn’t have pulled through.”
All in all, it was a good game and they did well. It seems that they enjoyed it and did their best, which is all that matters.
