Felsted has an enviable reputation both locally and nationally for the high quality of its sporting teams and the dedication and expertise of the school's coaching staff. There is a strong tradition of sporting excellence at Felsted, however all abilities are catered for and every pupil is encouraged to enjoy a recreational interest in individual or team games, while developing a healthy attitude to fitness and exercise.
All students will represent the school in sporting fixtures during their school career, with travel to an away fixture once a fortnight the norm for the vast majority of students. Additionally, students who take their sporting expertise to a higher level will receive the opportunity to join one of the many Sports Trips and Tours.
