Our School, The Chantry Cluster & Worcestershire West Sports Partnership
Hallow has always understood the importance of PE and sport and we strive to ensure that our pupils experience a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Every child in our school is involved in competitive sports as part of PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs and activities, cluster tournaments and other team sporting events that take place throughout the school year. We work alongside Worcestershire West Sports Partnership so that our children are given the opportunity to compete at a district level.
Hallow School is an important part of The Chantry Cluster and we attend sporting events throughout the year.
Our cluster of schools has a very clear vision for PE and sport which involves increasing the opportunities for competitive sports for ALL pupils.
