Sport

Stanwell has very good sports facilities centred upon an impressive Sports Hall. This hall is well equipped for a wide variety of sports including basketball and cricket. Outdoors, there are six hard standing tennis/netball courts and extensive grassed areas with both rugby and soccer pitches. We have submitted a planning application for an all-weather pitch to improve provision further for Stanwell pupils.

The school aims to offer pupils experience of a wide range of different sports during their five years of compulsory education. The curriculum aims to develop the potential of each pupil and offers the opportunity to experience the enjoyment of sporting activity at all levels.

There are many pupils who represent the county in sports such as netball, basketball, athletics, cricket, rugby and hockey. Stanwell pupils take part in a wide variety of competitions at county and national level and details of individual and school achievements are printed in the termly newsletter for parents and reported on the school website.

There are many school teams in sports such as rugby, football, hockey, cross country, netball, basketball, tennis and athletics that take part in fixtures after school and at weekends. Sport is an important aspect of Stanwell’s many extra curricular activities.

The school enters county/national competitions in gymnastics and trampolining and there are also badminton and basketball clubs.
