Sport & Enrichment
"Members of staff actively explore ways in which any barriers can be overcome so that students have excellent opportunities to take part in challenging and stimulating activities which increase their confidence and self-worth". OFSTED report, 2017
Living life to the full
At Treloar's we know that a good all-around education goes way beyond the classroom. Young people need to have lots of opportunities to pursue other interests, to relax and to socialise with their peers so we offer regular educational excursions plus a broad range of extra-curricular recreational, social and physical activities, both on campus and off-site.
For residential students we also offer a range of off-campus trips at weekends for shopping, to see sports events or join in local community events.
Students access music through the curriculum using accessible instruments and software; many also choose to take individual tuition where they show a particular talent or interest. Students perform both locally and at high profile venues.
Art and photography
Learners have access to equipment they can easily manipulate and experiment with through our art and photography studios. Students are regular exhibitors at local galleries and community events where their work regularly wins awards.
Drama and dance
We have a fully equipped hall with lighting and staging for productions with full accessibility built-in for all students and visiting professionals. As well as regular productions we invite dance and theatre groups to work with students and to progress their achievements in these areas.
We use our minibuses to regularly take the students off-site to support and enhance their educational experience. In addition we provide a residential trip to Key Stage Four students to an outdoor activity centre where students can work on their self confidence and team skills.
Students take part actively in sports, either through their curriculum or in social clubs, and many excel in their chosen sport including boccia, athletics, swimming, new-age kurling or archery. For School students aged 16 years or older, we offer the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.
Treloar's teams annually attend both regional and national championships and return each year with a healthy complement of medals.
We are very proud of the success of current and former students at both national and international competitions including the Paralympics.
Treloar's School received a grant of £3,500 from the Primary Sports Fund in 2016-2017 for the provision of PE and Sports at the School. Click here to read the report.

"Pupils...thoroughly enjoy the extra-curricular activities rooted in the school's daily offer, such as the many social visits and cultural events". OFSTED report, January 2018
