In Cardinal Winning we have a gym, a fitness room and an outside MUGA (Multi Use Games Area).  Due to a fortunate location we take advantage of excellent local facilities including the Emirates Arena and Tollcross Leisure Centre.

In S1-S3 pupils follow a Broad General Eduction.  Activities offered include Basketball, Football, Badminton, Athletics, Trampolining, Gymnastics and Yoga.  Pupils also participate in one period of fitness per week.

S4-6 pupils are now entering the Senior Phase and where appropriate will be completing National Courses, Sports Leaders and Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Pupils througout the school also have the opportunity to take part in Glasgow inter-school competitions and Scottish National competitions in a variety of events, including :  swimming, athletics, cross country and football.

The purpose of learning in our PE department is to enable pupils to:

  • make informed decisions in order to improve their mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
  • experience challenge and enjoyment
  • experience positive aspects of healthy living and activity for themselves
  • apply their mental, emotional, social and physical skills to pursue a healthy lifestyle
  • make a successful move to the next stage of education or work
  • establish a pattern of health and wellbeing which will be sustained into adult life, and which will help to promote the health and wellbeing of the next generation of Scottish children.
