Physical Education Team

Matt Brown – Physical Education Instructor

Achieving and enjoying success according to individual ability is at the centre of all we do at Coln House School, and it is a philosophy we fully embrace in the Physical Education Department.

We strive to ensure each individual student has a positive experience from Physical Education.

All pupils are taught in small groups at both Key Stages and often on an individual basis, to build the trust and understanding that is crucial to progress. All the sports delivered are designed to meet the needs of these small groups.The use of dedicated and additional Teaching Assistants in all lessons ensures that pupils receive all the support they need to achieve success. Team sports are delivered in after school activities.
