Here at Jonathan Gloag Academy we aim at providing a safe learning environment through physical education where we can develop healthy bodies, improve sports skills and promote positive attitudes towards lifetime physical activity. With a high-quality sports programme in place we aim at enhancing physical confidence, decision making and the understanding of activities and health. The sports programme provides a platform to cultivate the values and characteristics we believe to be fundamental for success both academically and in life.
