P.E. at Imberhorne

Our aim as a P.E. department is to promote a lifelong love of sport and exercise for all, through a wide range of competitive and recreational activities, during and after school. The carousel of photos above show just a few of our ex Imberhorne students who have moved on to pursue their love of sport, some at a professional level:

Ashley Halsey, England U19 Rugby Player, Saracens and London Irish

Mitchel Beeney, England U19 Goalkeeper, Chelsea F.C

Jodie Jacobs, England U19 Football Player

Scarlett Williams, U19 England Netball Player

Robyn Pettit, Team GB U19 High Jumper

Sporting Achievements

We are very proud of the many sporting achievements of our current students both inside and outside of school. We encourage our students to let us know of their success in their chosen sport. Please email our P.E teachers so that we can celebrate.

What do I do if I am ill or injured?

Bring your PE kit and a note explaining what you can do. Your PE teacher will never force you to take part in sport but you can act as a coach, referee or assistant. It is important that you stay warm and dry and clean for the rest of the day so you can’t come out to the fields in school uniform. If it is cold then bring school tracksuit bottoms (girls) or black skins (boys) too.

What kit do I need?

Indoor Uniform – Girls and Boys - White short sleeved polo shirt, blue Imberhorne shorts, white socks, trainers with non marking soles.

Outdoor Uniform – Girls and Boys - Long sleeved Imberhorne rugby shirt, Imberhorne shorts, Imberhorne socks, mouth guard (hockey and rugby), studded football boots (football and rugby) and outdoor trainers. Please see note under 'What if the weather is bad?'

Optional Outdoor Uniform – Imberhorne Trinity tracksuit bottoms (girls only), White thermal top/baselayer, Black/Navy thermal baselayer for legs (boys only)

What if the weather is bad?

Neither site has enough indoor spaces for all groups to work inside, and spare a thought for your PE teacher who might be outside all day!

During the Autumn and Winter months we strongly recommend that students bring a towel to school so that they may dry themselves after an outdoor activity which may have taken place in poor weather.  We also encourage students to wear a white thermal base layer under their Rugby shirts (this can be ordered through our supplier SWI - see our uniform page for details) Girls may wear the Imberhorne Trinity Tracksuit bottoms and boys may wear black thermal skins on their legs.  No other items will be accepted.

We also advise students to bring a boot bag or similar for the storage of their outdoor boots as these can become extremely muddy during outdoor lessons. If the boots are placed with their P.E kit and not in a bag it can lead to the kit becoming very uncomfortable to wear for their next P.E lesson.

What happens if my child is selected to represent the school?

A team sheet is put up in the PE area, your child will tick off their name to say they can play and then is encouraged to photograph the team sheet which includes information such as the time of kick off, a postcode of where we are playing (parents are always welcome to watch home and away fixtures), provisional pick up times etc. All away fixtures will use a school minibus and students will always return to Imberhorne Lane for picking up and not Windmill Lane. Students are encouraged to use a mobile phone to call when we are 30 minutes away.

We are also trialling the use of an Imberhorne P.E. Twitter page to facilitate the communication regarding fixtures

Can anybody turn up to school sports clubs?

Yes! No need to sign-up, no charge, no minimum standard. Just turn up and have fun.

Where will fixture and club information be posted?

We encourage independance amongst our students and so we display all fixture and club information in the Key Stage 3 P.E department. We ask that students keep up to date by checking this display board and speaking with P.E staff if any clarity is needed. Email addresses are found on the P.E subject page, if staff cannot be located to speak with. As fixture arrangements can be quite detailed, students are given permission to use their phone to take a photograph of the board or in the absence of this facility, may write them down.

Any club or fixture cancellations are posted as soon as possible on our P.E Twitter page. You may 'follow' this page to ensure you receive notifications or simply view it regularly if you prefer not to have a twitter account for this purpose. We will always endeavour to let students know via assemblies, form time and notice boards if clubs and fixtures are cancelled and they may call home from reception to advise parents if the cancellation is on the same day as they are notified.
