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.
Swimming is a life skill. Every child at Felsted is taught how to swim for safety, as well as being encouraged to swim for health and enjoyment. Annual inter school swim galas are held, in addition to regular meets against local schools. Keen swimmers are encouraged to join early morning swim training sessions, linked with a local swim club to improve technique and stamina, and life saving skills. Children that need extra support with their swimming can take part in our unique holiday swim school.
Golf at Felsted is a games option throughout the year for Senior School pupils and a Co-Curricular activity in the Prep School. Felsted takes part in two major competitions in Golf - the HMC foursomes and the ISGA match play.
