About the Gym Teams 

Primary Gymnastic Groups

Our primary groups are fun classes that focus on core skills and developing a passion for gymnastics.  Jumps, rolls, balancing, vaulting, flexibility work, acrobatics and the possibility of taking part in their first 'club' gymnastics competition all form part of this enjoyable group.

There are six classes that focus on varying ages and levels of ability, including our Primary Club Group and Primary Team sessions.  Gymnasts in Primary Team are seen as having the potential to compete in external competitions and shows. 

See the primary section for more information. 

Recreational Gymnastics

Our recreational gymnastics group is designed to introduce Ivybridge students to this enjoyable sport.  It focuses on fun, developing core skills and participation in the annual Performing Arts Show.  There is an emphasis on general gymnastics, including body awareness, fitness, jumps, rolls, balancing, vaulting, flexibility work and acrobatics.  Recreational gymnastics also offers the possibility for students taking part in their first 'club' gymnastics competition. 

Girls Gymnastics

These higher-level sessions are team sessions for girls who have been selected for their gymnastics ability or potential.  Focusing predominantly on floor and vault skills, gymnasts in these classes are offered the opportunity to compete for the College at British Schools Gymnastics competition.  They also take part in challenging group routines as part of the College's annual Performing Arts Show.

Boys Gymnastics

These higher-level sessions are team sessions for boys who have been selected for their gymnastics ability or potential.  Focusing predominantly on floor and vault skills, gymnasts in these classes are offered the opportunity to compete for the College at British Schools Gymnastics competition.  They also take part in challenging group routines as part of the College's annual Performing Arts Show.

Team Gym & Team Acrobatics

Places in Team Gymnastics and Team Acrobatics are by selection only, by way of a trial. Successful gymnasts train an additional two evenings per week, earn the right to compete for the College in regional and national competitions and form the Display Team that perform in high-profile display and events.

 

Gymnastics Academy

Gymnastics plays a huge part of the academy structure at the College.  The Gymnastics Academy involves selected students training during curriculum time.  Your child will know whether they are part of the Academy.  Students are not required to train for all the Academy blocks that are spread over the two weeks.  A minimum of one is required to be a part of the Academy.  Students will be registered for the blocks that are missed during the week.  Teachers are informed of all the Academy gymnasts and should be there to support all the gymnasts in their training and development.
