Here at Hillfort, we believe that children should lead active, healthy lives – with some competition thrown in there for excitement too.  We wish to inspire all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport, to become physically confident and to live healthy lives! This is why, at Liskeard Hillfort, we provide KS2 children with the opportunity to get involved in the following after school activities with our Sports Academy.

Football – led by Mr Glass

Rugby & Multi Sports – led by Plymouth Albion RFC and co-led by our very own Mrs Ellis, ex England Ladies Rugby player

Football – led by Plymouth Argyle FC and co-led by our very own Miss Morgan, Captain of Foxhole Ladies FC

Children should participate in all of the sessions they are eligible for. The exception to this is if children have already got prior commitments in their lives. We are especially keen for children to sign up to these clubs to demonstrate real commitment and to develop perseverance and resilience.

In addition, there will be 6 occasions in the year when Exeter Chiefs RFC come to our school to provide rugby, multisport and healthy eating sessions as Advanced Learning Days.

As well as gaining highly qualified coaching – in the case of Plymouth Albion from current players – for signing up to the academy, children will qualify for a training bundle. This will include branded training tops, a rucksack and a personalised t-shirt. If children sign up and demonstrate consistent attendance for the first half-term, then they are eligible for the bundle.
