With 3 full sized courts and one ½ size court, there is plenty of opportunity to play Tennis at Rivers Academy. Tennis is not only part of the curriculum, but extra-curricular competitions are organised for those that are keen.
The field is home to a full sized football pitch and rugby pitch up until Easter. For the summer term, the field is transformed into a Athletics arena, with a 300m track, a 100m sprint track, long jump and triple jump pits, and shot put and discus pitches.
There are 2 full sized, hard-court Netball pitches located on the field. These are used for lessons and for fixtures against other schools.
The outdoor basketball cages are not only perfect for Basketball, but also house 4 Futsal goals. The cages are used during lesson time and for extra-curricular clubs. They are also very popular before, during and after school, when pupils use the cages
for games and tournaments they organise themselves.
The school has recently finished installing its brand new Fitness Suite. The suite is without a doubt the best school suite in the borough. It is used for both lessons and extra-curricular clubs.
Another new addition to the school is the ‘XYZ’ Playground markings. These markings are used to improve all components of pupil’s fitness and skill. They have been endorsed by the R.F.U and F.A.
There are two separate gyms in the School. Both can host Basketball, Badminton, Volleyball, Dodgeball and 5-a-side Futsal matches. There is also ample room for Gymnastics, plenty of Table Tennis tables and is perfect for a game of Ends!
Longford is one of only 2 schools to own a set of revolutionary Dance Mats. The Dance Mats are a result of the Student Voice – the pupils wanted them, so the school got them!
Our 3 Olympic sized trampolines are used for lessons and for extra-curricular clubs. Extra provision is given for to the school’s vast amount of talented gymnasts.
