Introduction

Sport and physical activity is an important aspect to life at Oriel High School. We are fortunate to have outstanding facilities on site including extensive fields, an all weather pitch, hard courts, sports hall, gymnasium, dance studio, fitness suite and a dedicated classroom for theory teaching.

Every year Oriel High School competes in numerous local and regional competitions with considerable success. There is an extensive programme of extra curricular sports and physical activity clubs which are staffed by members of the PE team and other members of the school teaching staff.  Follow @Oriel_PE department on Twitter.
