Welcome to the HLC Sports Cluster.
- Mrs. Sharon Thomas, Sports Cluster Leader
We are now in our fifth year of our Sports Cluster and it continues to grow from strength to strength. Since we first started in 2012 we have engaged over a thousand primary school children in sporting activities, ranging from football, archery, golf, trampolining, tag rugby, the list is endless!
We continue to organise tournaments every year such as rounders, cricket, athletics, cross country, orienteering and swimming and will try and accommodate even more sports in the future. We are delighted that 4 out of 5 children in KS2 take part in at least one HLC Sports Cluster activity a year. This year we are hoping that every KS2 pupil will have the opportunity to participate in a sporting activity they have never tried before.
Secondary school students are always heavily involved with our Sports Cluster. Not only have they completed in numerous events, but over 300 Sports’ Leaders have used their skills to coach primary students with great success. They frequently organise their own primary clubs, encouraging young students to become involved with sport and to put them on the path to becoming leaders of the future. We are delighted that over 40% of our Year 11 leavers continue with a sporting activity once they have retired from the HLC Sports Cluster. We have great pride when hearing of their sporting prowess, knowing that the seeds were planted at HLC.
We are also developing our links with the students in KS1 as we believe sport has a vital role in every child’s well-being. Perhaps they will become the stars of the future!
