Speaking about the festival, Mrs Hilary Marsden, Headmistress, said:

“We are enormously proud of our Year 3 and 4 students who competed in their first fixture of 2017, demonstrating great teamwork and improvement to their badminton skills.

We are always looking for ways to add further interest and diversity to the sporting programmes available to our students, and we felt this was an exciting opportunity not to be missed.  We continue to explore new ways to deliver innovative teaching and foster an engaging, friendly and focused learning environment for our students to achieve their best results.”

About The Bisi Programme

The Bisi Programme is endorsed by Badminton England and offers that first step to progress from beginning to medal winner.

Bisi Badminton is aimed at pupils who are beginning their physical education journey within the National Curriculum right through to those coming to the end of education within a school environment. Bisi activities and resources map closely to the National Curriculum Key Stages. The Primary resources cover Key Stages 1 and 2, the secondary resources cover Key Stages 3 and 4. Completing these Bisi activities will contribute towards pupils meeting National Curriculum expectations.  Badminton talent identification activities are also integrated into the units and these are included in the new Bisi Badminton Festival Tookits.
