Sport and fitness are integral to life at Lomond School and pupils from Pre-School right up to Senior 6 enjoy Physical Education as part of the curriculum.

At Lomond there is an activity for everyone to enjoy ranging from the traditional team sports of Rugby and Hockey to the more individual pursuits of Archery and Sailing.

As a department we stress the benefits for health and wellbeing through the “sport for all” philosophy and many pupils take pride in representing Lomond in weekly team fixtures whilst benefiting from the mentoring and support of our dedicated team of PE teachers and sports coaches. As well as promoting physical fitness, playing sport is also proven to create and enforce friendship bonds and resilience among other lifelong learning skills.

In addition to their timetabled PE lessons, pupils in S3 to S6 have the opportunity to study towards a Sports Leader Award at levels SCQF Level 4 and Level 5.


Sports Leader Award Level 4

The Sports Leader award level 4 is a leadership course undertaken through sport that consists of three units of work including at least one hour of demonstration of Leadership.

It gives the pupils practical experience of planning, organising and delivering physical activity and throughout the course, pupils are encouraged to become more community minded and ambitious. The course also delivers professional skills and experience that employers and universities value.
