Specialist PE and Sport School

Ascot Park Primary School is unique as we are the only Primary Specialist PE and Sport School funded and endorsed by the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD). All students have 1-2 PE lessons each week with our highly qualified and experienced PE teacher, as well as a gymnastics lesson each week with our specialist gymnastics teacher. Kindergym and Playgym sessions are also offered during the day for children who haven’t yet started school.

Specialist Sport Program

We have elite gymnasts, divers, and soccer and netball students who receive high quality coaching in either our internal or external programs. 

Students in the Specialist Sport Program participate in 2-4 early morning training sessions each week, with our elite gymnasts and divers participating in up to 36 hours per week. Students in the Specialist Sport Program have the opportunity to perform in interschool, state and national competitions as well as opening up pathways into higher sporting and education programs.

We work in strong partnerships with Gymnastics SA, Diving SA, Netball SA and Football Federation SA as well as specialist coaches from Taught and Bowled and Alpha Gymnastics.

We have a school bus which picks up and drops off our gymnasts at the Marion Leisure and Fitness Centre, our divers at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre and transports netball and soccer students to various sporting events and locations.

Specialist Sport Class

Some students will be eligible to be a part of our Specialist Sport Class which is a smaller class catering for students with high demand sporting commitments.
