Sport & PE
Physical Education and team sports are an integral part of the broad curriculum here at the Gordonstoun Junior School.
Designed to build confidence and ability, we offer a range of competitive, co-operative and creative opportunities in a broad range of sporting activities right up to regional and national level.
Pupils use the Junior School’s dedicated playing fields and tennis courts as well as the Senior School’s comprehensive Sports facilities. Teamwork is an important part of the learning experience at Gordonstoun, so pupils take part in team games like rugby, cricket, hockey, football, netball, tennis, athletics, swimming and cross country and get the chance to test their skills against other schools and clubs across Scotland. In Years 7 and 8 they have the opportunity to embark on a Sports Tour to Edinburgh or Glasgow for a series of fixtures.
Pupils can also go horse riding all year and skiing in the Spring term. In recent years the Junior School has enjoyed success in various competitions on the slopes.
