Drake Sports Page

Drake Primary has a long sporting tradition, with a wide variety of activities covered both within school and as Extra-curricular activity.

Regular football coaching sessions and tournaments are organised by our dedicated Sports Coordinator, Mr Roy Burt. Our football teams have achieved an excellent record of wins, and our trophies are proudly displayed in the reception area of the school.

We also have successful netball and tag rugby teams, a long standing association with the Plymouth Raiders Basketball team and a whole school Sports Day is held every year at St Levan’s Field. Last year saw the first Trust Sports Day and all six member schools fielded teams for the event.

A number of seasonal activities are available: cricket,tennis and a running club are amongst the many and varied options. The school takes part in events such as Brickfields athletic events, the schools Challenge at the Plymouth half marathon and many others. We feel our pupils benefit greatly from being able to take part in these events and gain self-confidence as well as improving their health and fitness.
