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 days 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.

Mr Bartram took 8 girls ranging from Years 4-6 to the annual girls’ football tournament at St Wilfrid’s. They played brilliantly and were worthy winners of the trophy. They played 5 matches in total, only conceding 1 goal throughout the entire tournament. They scored lots of goals and brought the trophy home to St Ignatius School. Well done, girls.
On Tuesday 26th June, Year 1 and Year 2 attended a Potted Sports event at Gawthorpe Community Academy. We joined with lots of Ossett schools and had a great time. Here are some pictures of the Year 2s having lots of fun.

The Year 2 Team 2 came 2nd out of 21 teams – fantastic
Well done to everyone who took part.
