What Sport Means to Forest Park Preparatory School

At Forest Park, there is a strong emphasis on health and fitness outside the classroom. Forest Park believes that all children should be given the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of sporting activities. The intention is that each child may find at least one physical activity for them to enjoy and maybe, in which to excel. Many children love playing sports and believe games are an important part of school life. All Forest Park pupils have an opportunity to play in a School or House team and experience the pride which that role brings. Fixtures in all sports are arranged against state and independent schools at a variety of levels to give as many children as possible the chance to represent the school. At Forest Park, we like to emphasise the pleasure of participation and working together in team games. While we love winning at sports, our priority is for children to enjoy being physically active.


Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

'City in the Community' not only teach our physical education with in our curriculum but also allow school to be involved in various sporting events and other competition which are not available to all schools.

"I could not believe it when I was told I won the Art competition with City in the Community, my artwork is now displayed on an actual wall at the Etihad Stadium." Theodore 2014


Outdoor sports are played on our new state of the art all-weather sports surface. We are also fortunate to have a large school hall which can be used in case of extreme weather. We also make good use of local facilities for such activities as swimming, cross country and athletics.

MCFC and the Curriculum

Forest Park is fully aware of the positive effects that physical education has upon young children. As a result, we have selected specialist sporting staff from ‘City in the Community’ (Manchester City Football Club) who work with all our children enabling them to reach their full potential.
