A varied programme of physical education and sport is a key feature of a Hutchesons’ education. Primary PE is taught by highly qualified specialist teachers, including ex-international athletes and Olympians. From Primary 4, pupils use the first-rate facilities at our Beaton Road, Auldhouse and Pollok Park campus.

Infant classes have three periods of PE each week, either in the gym for dance and gymnastics or in the main hall where the focus is on games and the development of spatial awareness and hand-eye co-ordination.
