"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Welcome to the Sports Site of Rydens Enterprise School & 6th Form College

Sport at RES plays a key role in the school's mission to support and nurture individual pupils to believe, achieve and succeed their goals. We believe sport develops pupils' confidence and resilience through physical, technical and mental stimulus as well as exposure to teamwork and leadership opportunities.



As a department we are very inclusive and try to offer activities that will appeal to all our students, be it the traditional team games or more modern sports.  Our standards and expectations are very high and students are encouraged to take part in an excitingly wide range of activities that are delivered in curriculum time and in our Extra- Curricular schedule. As a department we are keen on developing competitive sports within the school and we are driven to become one of the most successful schools within the county in sport.

Within sport at RES we strive to achieve our goals by following 4 key principles;

1 - Sport for All - engage and challenge all pupils through breadth and depth of sports and physical activities

2 - High Performers - foster and develop pupils aspiring to excellence in identified sports and physical activities

3 - Academic Integration - embrace sport and physical activities in to, not appended to, the fabric of RES School life

4 - Community - engage RES in its surrounding community through sport and physical activities



Key Stage 3

Our KS3 Curriculum offers a broad spectrum of engaging sports which is focused on providing pupils with opportunities to develop as a sports person and enable them to develop their knowledge of fitness and health as well as a wide range of technical, tactical and leadership skills.  We aim to ensure all pupils who leave KS3 are confident performers who are inspired to stay engaged in sport and follow a pathway that allows them to further develop as a Sports Person.

Key Stage 4 & 5

The evolving world of sports science, business and fitness is becoming more and more lucrative around the world and Physical Education has never been more relevant to people wanting to break into this industry.  Our KS4 programme offers pupils the next step in working towards following their dream of a career in sports.  Whether it be a as a player, sports scientist or sports journalist, the RES PE departments talented staff will provide pupils with an energizing and stimulating environment in which to maximise their fitness and knowledge of the subject.
