About the P.E. Department
Mrs E Moore – Head of Department
Miss L Taylor
Mrs L Barker
The P.E. Department at MTGS delivers a broad and balanced programme which is designed to meet the needs of all its pupils. We feel that our working unit is well experienced and compliments each other in its areas of expertise.
As a pupil of MTGS you will have the opportunity to become involved in many sports and activities as varied as Netball and Hockey to Golf and Pilates. You will be encouraged to participate in as many sports as possible and will also be given the opportunity and encouragement to join the clubs at other schools with which we are closely linked.
If you would like further information about a particular sport, why not check out their websites listed below or contact our local clubs. Our aim at MTGS is to give every girl an opportunity to succeed at whatever level or activity. We will support all our pupils in their efforts and encourage them to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.

MTGS Team Kit Orders
Orders for Team Kit can now be placed with our Kukri MTGS Team Kit Shop
The Kukri MTGS Team Kit Shop will be open until 14th August with a delivery time of 8 weeks. Players should receive their new kit by the October Half Term break. Please take care when ordering as once placed, the order cannot be changed!
Any girls who represent MTGS in any sport including swimmers, athletes, cross country runners and badminton players as well as our hockey and netball players, can have items from the Team Kit Shop. For Hockey, the only compulsory items are the home and away hockey socks and the team shirt. For Netball, the only compulsory item is the team shirt. Girls should only order team kit once they are regularly playing for a team.
Optional items available in the Kit Shop include a Gortex Fleece Lined Jacket and a compression base layer which do help to keep players warm. Girls may also buy track pants, hoodies and skorts which have their team number (hockey players) and name on them. These are the same design and colour as the standard PE Kit and therefore it is your choice whether to purchase these as a replacement or as an addition to their PE Kit. Team Shirts MAY NOT be worn in PE lessons but can be worn at training sessions as well as during matches. All other items in the Team Kit Shop can be worn in lessons as well as for training and matches.
The hockey socks are a stock item at Kukri and therefore have to be ordered separately and will arrive much earlier than the rest of the kit which is bespoke and made in China for us. Please make sure that you quote the code given on the sock ordering page so that you are not charged for delivery of the socks.
Girls ordering kit for the first time should email Mrs Moore using the following email address [email protected] to check on their team number for hockey.
