New Astro Turf Pitch

We have been very lucky in being able to put in a brand new Astro Turf surface on our pitch at the back of the school site. This is a top quality facility which will allow students to take part in physical activity throughout the year in all weathers and with our new floodlights allow clubs/fixtures to take place right through the winter months. To ensure that this new facility is kept in best condition for many years we have to ensure that the correct footwear is worn whilst students are using it.

The picture below clearly lays out what is and isn’t permitted in terms of footwear. I have also attached this to the email sent today to allow for clearer viewing and there are signs on the gate for students to look at.

Finally, as a department and after consultations with our students, we have again reviewed our extra-curricular provision for all year groups and decided to increase the amount of clubs we offer which are accessible to all students . We will still run a large amount of competitive fixtures in a variety of sports but our clubs will be for the benefit of all students. Over the course of the year we also hope to arrange friendly fixtures in a number of sports to give all students the opportunity to represent the school.

All clubs are free of charge and give students an opportunity to partake in physical activity, which has many health and social benefits and which will help them develop many skills.

Through our Sports Captains we will constantly review our timetable to ensure we are providing a broad range of activities to suit all students, and will look to bring in coaches where gaps are evident in what students want.

All of the information on our clubs can be found on our timetable. Alternatively you can also keep up to date with our extra-curricular activity on the Wiseman Sports Blog found at  You can also keep up to date with us on Twitter @pe_wiseman

Yours in Sport
