At Prudhoe West we are extremely lucky to have a phenomenal sports hall with excellent gymnastics facilities.
We recognise how important core body strength is across all areas of life, and as such invest heavily in the development of this. Our specialist gymnastics coach, Gayle Smith, offers a full day of teaching each week to children across school. This has meant in turn that our children excel within this field.
Additioanlly, Gayle runs weekly after school clubs for children in KS1 and KS2, as well as other gymnastic opportunitites out of school hours.
As part of the Northumberland School Games, we annually enter two teams into the gymnastics competition. Last year we were lucky enough to qualify for the grand final in Cramlington, where we represented Tynedale. We finished 1st and were awarded gold medals. Not only this, but our team received the highest score the competition has ever seen!
