What sports will I take part in?
At the Archer Academy we love sport and being active. We have fantastic sports facilities at our Lower School campus. As well as a big sports hall and some multi-use games areas, we have an all-weather pitch and a climbing wall that’s suitable for all abilities.
You can look forward to taking part in loads of different sports such as: football, cricket, athletics, cross country, netball, cheerleading, badminton, basketball, rugby, rounders, table tennis, trampolining, climbing, zumba, squash, fitness and multisports. As well as formal PE lessons, we offer lots of sport opportunities though our enrichment programme, on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Other clubs take place at lunchtimes and before school.
We regularly compete against other schools across the borough of Barnet. If you join a team to represent the school, there is a special team strip which Archer students wear with pride. So far we have had success in football, trampolining, athletics, cheerleading and cricket, and our trophy cabinet is beginning to fill up! We are hoping to win even more trophies next year.
There are also lots of sporting trips at the Archer for you to look forward to. Our students have enjoyed trips to watch Arsenal Ladies, see Saracens play at Wembley, watch cricket at Lords and tennis at Wimbledon. You are certainly going to be busy!
