Girls Sports at Buckswood

The mental health benefits gained from sport for young ladies are especially important today and at Buckswood, Girls Sports and the mentoring available develops both mental and physical health for life and we are investing in Sports for Girls over the next few years because here, Girls Sports are as important as Boys Sports.


The impact of physical activity for children is well documented to have positive effects on both their physiological and metal health as well as promoting an up-lift in academic performance as the body works more effectively. Scientific tests have shown that increased exposure to PE results in better classroom performance with an increase in blood-flow to the brain improving concentration and brain stimulation resulting in enhanced attainment.
