Sport at Great Walstead is based around our three aims. These are to:
1. Develop independent and resilient young sportsmen and women who are creative and confident decision makers.
2. Provide a variety of team and individual sporting experiences for all pupils.
3. Instil pupils with a lifelong love of sport and an understanding of physical health and well-being.
When these aims are combined, the sporting experience at Great Walstead is one that captures excellence, inclusivity and enjoyment for all. Whether it is competing in a national final, or playing a new sport for the first time, every sporting achievement is valued and recognised. Our location and facilities allow our pupils to experience the best opportunities. We have seven football and rugby pitches, astro-turf, indoor swimming pool, sports hall with a state of the art floor and lighting, indoor and outdoor netball courts and beautiful woodlands which are used for outdoor games and cross country.
Sport at Great Walstead is varied, challenging and fun for pupils of all abilities.
Alongside these core sports we also offer additional activities as part of our after school clubs which include, but are not limited to, sailing, karate, dance, horse riding and golf.
