Sports Leadership 


At Sparken Hill Academy we believe in developing confident, healthy leaders through sport and physical activity. As pupils progress through school there are opportunities to become part of the Sports Crew and Ambassadors team.

School Swimming

Thursday from 9.15-12.15


Once again we are working in partnership with Worksop College and Superswimmers swim school to provide our school swimming lessons. Pupils will swim in groups of 10 with a ratio of 1:4 maximum with a swimming instructor. We employ 3 swimming teachers who are based in the pool with the pupils and 4 members of staff who are on poolside. 

Pupils will get the first opportunity to go swimming in year 3 and again in year 4. Our aim is that by the end of year 4 every child can swim 25m in at least two different strokes and has also completed a water safety assessment program.

During these unprecedented times we are asking parents to make sure that their child arrives at school with their costume already on. Wear PE kit over the top as this is easier to change into afterwards. Bring a towel and underwear in a named bag ( preferably a bag for life) this will make things a lot easier for your child when putting their clothes into their bag on the poolside. 



School Games Criteria 2021-2022

Premier League Primary Stars 

This year we are working again in partnership with Sheffield United FC and their community coaches to provide extra coaching sessions and CPD/lessons for staff. Every Friday they come into school for the day and works with all of our children. This includes lunchtime sessions and intervention clubs working with selected pupils. 

As part of the package with Premier Stars our pupils attend various events throughout the year at St Georges Park and Bramall Lane.
