2018 is off to a healthy start for Parkfield pupils in their brand new gym hall.

Parkfield, Bournemouth’s only Free School, moved into its new premises in Hurn in September 2017 and all year groups are making use of impressive facilities which also include a dance studio, outdoor tennis courts, netball courts and a football pitch.

Head of PE Kim Taylor, said: “Pupils are enjoying lessons in sports including gymnastics, basketball, handball, badminton, cricket and volleyball.  And there is also a climbing frame in the smaller hall for primary gymnastics classes.

“The sports hall is a fantastic resource and can also be used for whole school events.”

Parkfield caters for children aged four-16 and encourages cross age-group learning in all subjects, including PE.

Ms Taylor explained: “Our primary pupils benefit from additional PE lessons led by our secondary school pupils. While our secondary students all get the opportunity to complete a Sports Leader qualification which helps them to learn communication skills, leadership and people management techniques.”
