Sports Funding

  At Argyle, we are committed to improving the health and fitness of every child.  As well as providing a stimulating Physical Education curriculum (in which every child receives teaching from a specialist sports coach) we strive to provide extra-curricular sports clubs for every child.  We believe that varied PE opportunities provide a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
