Learning through Sport

We are extremely proud of our Sporting heritage at Nottage. As part of the curriculum the pupils partake in a range of sports. We are part of the Bridgend rugby/netball fixture setup (Autumn/Spring) and the Bridgend Basketball league (Summer). We actively seek and enter festivals and tournaments so that the pupils experience playing and competing with other schools. This is just a short selection of the competitions we regularly participate in:

  • The Bridgend District Rugby Tournament
  • The Bridgend Cricket Festival
  • The Bridgend Girls Cricket Festival
  • The Bridgend Swimming Gala
  • The Bridgend Netball Tournament
  • The Cefn 7s Rugby Tournament
  • The Bridgend Schools Judo Tournament

We have supportive staff who offer a variety of clubs for our pupils at Nottage. These include but are not limited to:

  • Rugby
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Hockey
  • Cross Country
  • Cricket
  • Multi Skills


Swimming Lessons

Pupils in Years 4 to 6 participate in intensive swimming courses held at Ynysawdre Swimming Pool one lesson per day for one week of the year with the exception of year 4 who do two weeks training usually over consecutive weeks where the timetable allows. We believe this is the best tuition for such an important life skill.

What We Are Proud Of

Enriched Curriculum

We are very fortunate to have a staff of experts in various fields that assists us in enriching our curriculum. This includes: using the locality, onsite enrichment through external companies and partners, off site visits and residential trips
