Our aim is to provide fun and engaging PE lessons and to deliver a wide range of extra curricular sports clubs during lunchtime and after school. We run clubs for all; gifted and talented, targeted children and all ages.
All sessions are based on the whole child; agility, balance, co-ordination, social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills. We continue to teach children the importance of a healthy life style and keeping active. We adapt each session to the children’s ability and ensure every child is engaged and being challenged to the best of their ability. Our passion and love for sport helps each child strive to achieve their best.
George Tomlinson Primary School is a member of the Waltham Forest School Sport Network. Being members we are invited to participate in competitions outside of school in the Borough. The sports team will select children of all ages and abilities to train for, attend and compete in these events. Throughout the year there are a variety of sports delivered. Please see the calendar for the up and coming events.
We will also host a number of Intra School competitions within school. This gives the children a chance to compete against each other in a variety of sport skills and earn rewards for their class. It also gives all children a chance to compete as a team, working on their social, team and communication skills.
George Tomlinson’s sports department were awarded a GOLD School Games Kitemark for 2018-2019.
Thursday 15th November – Friday 16th November 2018
This Girl Can is a celebration of active females who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or how hard it is. We wanted to help girls overcome the fear of judgement that stops them from joining in and taking on challenges.
15 girls were given the opportunity to challenge themselves on a 2 day residential to Wales. The residential was run by Atlas Adventures who lead and assisted us for the duration. During the trip the girls took part in a physical team activity, high ropes on day 1, followed by climbing Mount Snowdon on day 2!
The aim of this trip was for the girls to prove to themselves that every challenge can be overcome with the right attitude, commitment and perseverance and to have a fun experience with friends and staff of GT.
Distance: 7 miles Total Climb: 723m (2,372 ft) Time: 8 hours
What an achievement it was, with breath taking views and reaching the peak it really was an AMAZING trip we will never forget.
