At Highlees, we aim to develop agility, co-ordination and confidence through physical activity. All pupils at Highlees have two sessions of PE a week, covering dance, gymnastics, games and athletics. Year 4 to 6 cover swimming, where the children develop the skills required to ensure that they are confident swimmers by the time they leave us in Year 6. We encourage a competitive spirit while recognising the value of co-operation, fair play and team work.
Highlees offers a wide variety of sports clubs for the children to participate in and enjoy the competitive ambience. We provide Dodgeball, girls and boys Football, Netball, Cross Country running, Country Dance, Rugby and Multi-Sports, Rowing, Cricket, Rounders.

Highlees has a ‘Traditional Sports Day' held in the summer term. All children compete in a selection of strength, stamina and agility activities.

Physical Education is a vital part of the children’s education and we pride ourselves in the way we help to develop their knowledge of a healthy lifestyle and positive attitudes.
