The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence through an ability to manage their bodies successfully in a variety of situations, for example: climbing, jumping, running, hopping and skipping etc.
At St Gabriel’s we are fortunate to have a full time coach from Premier Sports who delivers the PE curriculum in all year groups.
The children also have a wide range of after school sporting activities to offer to them via the Schools After School Club.
Through the children’s hard work and commitment, St Gabriel’s has now got some fantastic, very competitive football and netball teams.
St Gabriel's has won the Gold School Games Mark Award for its commitment to the development of competitions and contribution to the community. It has been recognised for attracting more people to its after-school clubs, increasing the number of children who have become volunteer coaches and establishing a successful sports council. Teachers and pupils were presented with the award by World Championship Gold medallist gymnast Beth Tweddle at Lowton High School.

Children from our Reception enjoyed playing in a Sports Festival at Leigh Sports Village.
The hockey team represented St Gabriel's at the Greater Manchester Games in March and fought hard with sheer determination, they was amazing but unfortunately didn't proceed to the next round but left with their heads held high as The Wigan Champions.
