Felsted offers a strong athletics programme for all age groups. As children progress through the school they all develop their athletic movement skills through the core PE curriculum, which has an emphasis on enjoyment, success for all and the fundamentals of footwork, co-ordination and core strength. This is complemented by the games programme where those fundamentals are developed in relation to specific sports from Year 3 to Year 13.
Pupils can take their athletic talents to the highest levels, with many competing in National competitions. Felsted has close links with Braintree Athletics Club, where selected children can train once a week to develop their potential. An annual sports day also takes place to showcase Felstedians’ athletic ability.
