At Huntcliff we have a longstanding tradition of school sport and physical activity that is enriched through its extra-curricular programme. Through the PE department and the School Sports Partnership students are given many opportunities to be involved in both school teams and the various activities we provide. All students have to do is to grab the chance!
During the school year teams, clubs and activities change in order to try and reach as many young people as possible and provide them with a variety of experiences. Students can participate in both traditional and some more non-traditional clubs, which are often linked to local clubs or NGBs. Some examples of activities that have been provided include archery, horse riding, netball, football, cheerleading, ‘Go Ride’, angling, fitness, ‘Rock-It-Ball’ and rounders.
Information about clubs, one off taster sessions and school competitions are regularly updated through the school website, pupil bulletin and PE notice boards. Alternatively, see your friendly School Sports Co-ordinator for more information.
As always at Huntcliff the student voice is important to us so if you have any activities you want to try or any positive suggestions please let us know

The students are the key to our success in physical activity. The student voice is important to us. Here at Huntcliff we recognise that everyone is an individual and students have many opportunities to have a say in what they want when it comes to physical activity and sport.
We have a School Sports Council which has member from all years and who work together to create a united approach to enriching the lives of as many pupils as possible. They are also heavily involved in school competition, both taking part and running events for others.
Following on from the popular Youth Sport Trust initiative the school runs the Young Ambassador project. We have two senior ambassadors and two from the lower school, with a pupil liaison representative also from the lower school. The Young Ambassadors work with other selected pupils, not only from the local area but also nationally, to meet a common target of increasing sports and promoting healthy lifestyles to their peers. Amongst other projects, they have organised inter-form activities and a small school Olympics for primary school pupils in North Lincs. Our schools Platinum Ambassador, Katy Langley, also attended the National Ambassador Conference where key issues and projects work discussed and worked on in order for them to be rolled out to all secondary schools.
To echo the fact the opinion of the pupil is imporrtant if you have any great ideas you want to share or a new activity you want to try see the schools Sport Co-ordinater.
At Huntcliff we believe that students should leave school with more than academic qualifications and through sports they have excellent opportunities to develop their leadership skills. Through leadership students can gain important life skills, which can be the first stepping stone towards employment or further education, increase self esteem and learn responsibility all while taking a full and active part in sports.
We have given pupils opportunities to complete the nationally recognised qualification of Sports Leaders, Dance Leaders and Young Leaders Awards. Some sports specific courses include Netball Youth Umpire Award, Junior Football Organisers Award and Rugby Union Leaders Award, all of which can be used for further education and job applications. In terms of gaining life experiences in leadership, students from Huntcliff are utilised to help at primary school festivals, inter-form competitions. Some have even taken on the responsibility of working with the primary schools to run after school clubs.
All students who undertake volunteering and leadership at the school ‘log’ their hours on the National website Step into Sport where they can gain rewards and recognition for achieving set numbers of hours. This can then follow them into further education so they can continue to develop.
