I.C.E.: A girls’ games fitness option

Sport is at the heart of Blundell’s life and team sports are very much at the forefront of this. However, we also recognise the need for an all-round and enjoyable programme for those pupils who do not wish to play team sport. As a result we run the I.C.E. (Individual Cardio and Exercise) programme, and the G.A.F. (Games and Fitness) programme, for those pupils who want to be active and healthy, but who do not wish to play competitive sport.

These programmes encompass a huge range of different activities and exercises, ranging from Yoga and Pilates through to HIT sessions, alongside time in the school’s dedicated fitness suite. In addition, there is a wide variety of games and activities pupils can enjoy, including running, 5-a-side football, volleyball and benchball.

The overall aim of the programme is not only to cater for those for whom team sport is not an attractive option, but also to help pupils develop an enjoyment of keeping fit, so important for them to take with them into later life.

Testimonials from students:

“I enjoy the programme because I get to do yoga which is relaxing and focus on my fitness during a set time which is helpful when you have a busy work schedule”

I enjoy the opportunities to experiment with work out methods such as going to the gym or trying yoga. I also like it because every day we do I.C.E there is something different planned for us”

“As someone who doesn’t particularly enjoy your more standard sports like hockey, I.C.E. has allowed me to find a form of exercise I enjoy. I.C.E. has provided me with exercises I can do once I leave school at the end of this academic year, and has helped me find ways to keep fit without it feeling like such a trial to do”

“I really enjoy the programme because I like team activities and bench-ball. I am a competitive person and enjoy winning the tournaments we have on a Saturday. I like fun atmosphere and enjoy socialising with people in the years below”
