Sport at Mersham



Mersham Primary School have been awarded the School Games Platinum Award. A reflection of how hard the teachers and children value School Sport and leading active lifestyles.

Coaches and Community Links

The children continue to benefit from high quality P.E. teaching. This is delivered by our amazing team and supported by our qualified sports coach Mrs Fraser; all classes will benefit throughout the year from his expertise. We are also lucky to have Tennis coaching from Sellindge Tennis Club, which the children are really enjoying. In the Summer Term, the children have high quality cricket coaching from the team at Mersham Cricket Club. Have a look at the ‘Community Sports Links’ page in ‘Our School Community’ section for more information.

At Mersham Primary School we have a committed ‘House Captain and Sports Crew’ who work alongside the P.E. leader to develop sporting opportunities across the school. 

Throughout the year, they will be continuing to think about ways we can further develop School Sport at Mersham by thinking of creative ways that we can get children active within the school day and achieve their 60 Active Minutes each day.
