Throughout Years 7 - 9 at Broadwater School, students will experience a wide variety of sports during curriculum time including netball, football, rugby, table tennis, badminton, basketball, dance, gymmnastics, trampolining, short tennis, tennis, orienteering, hockey, rounders, cricket, benchball, dodgeball, Athletics and softball.
Students also have the opportunity to attend lunchtime and after school clubs in several of the above sports which may then lead onto them representing the school in Inter school matches and tournaments. Broadwater competes in several competitions throughout the year including football, rugby, netball, swimming, basketball, athletics, rounders and cricket tournaments for both boys and girls.
During the year students also have the opportunity to take part in many Inter house competitions in some of the above named sports. We have a trophy for the House with the most points overall at the end of the year.
We hold an annual sports day every July in which all students take part.
We also hold an annual Inter house swimming competition and enter the Waverley Inter schools swimming competition.
The school has strong links with several sports clubs in the local community including Godalming Lawn Bowls Association, Waverley Vipers Netball Club, Farncombe Cricket Club, Godalming Tennis Club, FYFC, Milford Pumas Girls' Football Club, Guildford Rugby Club, Farncombe Netball Club and Guildford Athletics Club. These links help to extend our more able students and we regularly have external coaches come into school to deliver sessions at lunch time or in lessons.
During KS3 studentshave the opportunity to take part in leadership work. Broadwater hosts several sports events for local primary schools which we organise and run throughout the year. Broadwater Young leaders help to coach, score, umpire and deliver these competitions and festivals giving them an insight into what coaching sport and dealing with young children is really like.
Students learn valuable communication, interpersonal and organisational skills as well as time keeping, coaching, scoring and umpiring skills, which in turn lead to a more rounded individual.
