The Physical Education Department forms an integral part of school life in respect of both the curriculum and extracurricular activities. We have a good number of specialist staff who are supported by a large number of academic colleagues with knowledge and experience in specific areas. The department functions from a purpose built sports complex on site, with playing fields and astroturf pitches off site.

Our off site facilities include a games field (with 4 rugby pitches, 3 cricket squares, 1 football pitch, 5 rounders pitches and some athletics facilities) and a floodlit astroturf (offering 2 hockey pitches, 12 tennis courts or 4 five a side football pitches).
The department aims to promote positive attitudes towards active participation in Physical Education and Sport.
Each pupil is encouraged to develop their potential creating the opportunity to allow later involvement at either a recreational level or in a more competitive environment.
Bablake is proud of its team and individual performance and has regular successes year by year.
A number of our pupils achieve representation at district, county, region or national level in a variety of sports. Most recently Shane Geraghty and Helen Price (U19) have represented England at rugby and Paul Best has played cricket for England U19, Cambridge and Warwickshire CC. Jessica Horn has been a member of the U16 hockey squad, Lucy Smith is ranked 4th in England for the Shot Putt at U17 level, while Will Kenney- Herbert is currently a Welsh U16 Hockey international.
