The delivery of sports coaching to the pupils is one of the areas with which the School is most proud. The staffing of games activities is exceptionally generous in order to address the individual needs of each pupil. Making use of the experience of our own staff, as well as specialist sports coaches (including coaches from Cardiff Met's highly respected School of Sport), ensures that every child realises and fulfils their potential.
