Physical Education

The Battle Abbey Sport department continues to grow at pace. The Department consistently gets some of the best academic results in the school including a 100% pass rate at GCSE and the majority of students going on to get Distinctions on their BTEC Sport qualification. Many students continue into further education to study sports related subjects having been inspired by the curriculum at Battle.  

As well as our academic credentials we coach a wide range of sports during our game sessions including football; hockey; netball; swimming and athletics. We combine this with the opportunity to study other sports such as badminton and table tennis.  

Battle Abbey has unique sports facilities including an Astro turf pitch in the shadow of the ancient Abbey and our sports pitches which sit on top of the Battle of Hasting’s battlefield. We also have excellent relations with our local partners and have access to an impressive sports Hall.  

Our sports scholars benefit from a bespoke programme to help them reach their goals whether they are a top cyclist, equestrian or they play team sports. All  students benefit from an onsite gym and an indoor swimming pool.  

We have had great recent success with our sporting teams in sports ranging from football to stoolball. Battle Abbey is a unique place to study sport and we continue to develop an innovative curriculum to allow students to flourish and achieve their sporting goals.
