At Talbot House, every child has the opportunity to participate in team and individual sports and activities at the level that challenges them, but which suits their ability. Sport is an important feature of school life. Through the physical education programme, children are encouraged to take part in competitive fixtures and tournaments. The curriculum covers opportunities to experience: tag-rugby, football, cricket, netball, rounders, swimming, athletics, ultimate-frisbee, tennis and squash. We are proud of our association with the West Hants Tennis Club and the children have a full afternoon of PE a week at their dome in the Lower Gardens in Bournemouth. This allows us not only a year- round facility, but the older children also benefit from the expertise of their coaches. In addition, children swim every week, all year round and from the Summer Term that they are in Reception.
