Sports Activities – on site and community

We think that there is great value in children taking part in sporting activities. In so doing, children gain important life and social skills and learn about how to live a healthy life. We take part in many sporting tournaments and festivals including:

  • Football League Matches and Tournaments
  • Netball League Matches and Tournaments
  • Cricket  Tournaments
  • Tag Rugby Tournaments
  • District Sports
  • Swimming Gala
  • Cross-Country Running
  • May Day Festival
  • Tennis Tournament
  • Archery Competition 

In 2016-17, we were winners of the local swimming gala,  held at Runnymede swimming pool; members of our cross county team reached the Essex County finals, our netball team won the local league and our football team also had great success. For more information on our sporting successes and on how we spend our Sorts Premum funding,  see 'P.E. at Thundersley' section.
