PE and Sport at Thriplow C of E Primary School

At Thriplow School we place great importance on competitive sport and good quality PE lessons for every child.  We believe that such experiences boost self esteem, increase physical fitness and encourage a healthy lifestyle.  We have teams for football, cricket, cross country, netball and gymnastics, as well as inter-house tournaments in rounders and table tennis.
