Sports & Extra-Curricular
There are many opportunities for our students to get involved in sports or extra-curricular clubs that interest them or to help them study towards a qualification or for their exams. Some examples of our current offerings can be found below.
Period 7 is in place to help students excel in their learning and also to help them with extra study practice for exams and assignments. Click here to view the latest timetable.
Sports Day 2017 and Champions Day 2017
Sports Day: In July, we held our annual Sports Day involving all students taking part in a range of track and field events. This culminated in a fantastic afternoon of sporting achievement as students competed in their 4 houses. As always, there were many parents at the event cheering the students on and refreshments were provided in the form of delicious cream teas by the Friends of Saxmundham Free School.
Champions Day: After all three schools in the Trust (Saxmundham, Beccles and Ixworth) have had their individual sports days, the two winners from each school’s
event will then go and compete against the winners from the other two schools at Champions Day. So the top 100m runners race against each other, the top 200m runners etc. It is an amazing day of sporting excellence, but it is also great to meet up with, and compete against the other schools in the trust. Saxmundham Free School have won the trophy for 4 of the last 5 Years!
Cross Trust Competitions
Throughout the academic year, the Trust runs a series of Cross Trust Competitions between our three Free Schools, Beccles, Ixworth and Saxmundham. They create healthy competition between the schools, promote excellence and also make the schools feel fully part of the Trust as one entity. See below, for schedule of events.
