Sport at Wood End is thriving! Pupils and staff alike are enthusiastic about P.E. and extra curricular activities. All children are involved in two hours of high quality P.E. lessons each week, one of which is taught by a specialist P.E. teacher. There are many extra-curricular clubs ranging from football and running club to street dance and karate. On the competition front, all year groups have the opportunity to compete in tournaments throughout the year.
