Sport at Feltonfleet
Sport is a very important feature of the school and a very active games department aims to provide the greatest possible opportunity for all pupils to develop skills and represent the school. In addition to curricular PE and organised sport, our pupils are encouraged to take a very active interest in extra-curricular activities, and there is a broad and exciting range of activities on offer.
In Nursery much of the learning programme is activity-based, particularly in the afternoons, and many activities enable pupils to work outside as well as inside.
In Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 there is a daily PE lesson for all pupils, whether on the field, astro, or in the hall or swimming pool, with all PE lessons being taught by specialist staff. A range of extra-curricular activities is offered to pupils in the pre-prep, including ballet, judo, violin and piano, and teachers offer a range of after-school activities and clubs for pupils in Years 1 and 2.
In the Main School
Years 3 and 4 have two extended games sessions a week, increasing to three sessions from Year 5 to Year 8, one session per week usually being given over to representative fixtures, some of which are held on Saturday mornings.
The full range of team sports are played at the school; for girls this means netball, hockey and rounders, with lacrosse recently added to the roster. Boys play football, rugby, hockey and cricket. The school has had great success at 7s rugby, and other games widely available at the school include tennis, swimming, athletics, cross-country and biathlon. The school has its own shooting range and a strong reputation in the sport, with three pupils representing the country at U14 level in the last three years. We also have a national air-rifle champion, a national sprint champion, an English U13golf team member and a Surrey squash champion, all currently at the school.
