Further opportunities for physical activity are offered through the provision of games equipment at lunchtimes, access to an adventure trail at playtimes and a range of after-school clubs. Coaches from local sports clubs offer taster lessons in a range of sports during the school year. Each half term, all KS2 children compete in mixed-age teams in a challenge event - recent events have included an archery competition, hockey tournament and a traditional sports day. Children also take part in inter-school events organised by Thirsk Schools Sports Partnership and occasional informal matches with other local schools.
