A Beacon for Sport

We aspire to be a leading light in school and youth sport development and achievement in the East of England and beyond. 

Information relating to fixtures and results can be found on the Norwich School sports website.

 

Aims of Sport at Norwich School

  • Developing people capable of excelling in a high performance sporting environment.
  • Providing a rich, broad range of sporting experiences for all to inspire improved capability, and sport for life.
  • Providing opportunities through sport experiences to equip pupils for a life of leadership and service.

Our aims in sport not only will create pupils who achieve their sporting potential, who are engaged in sport, improving their well-being, cognitive functioning and health, but will also help prepare pupils for life beyond Norwich School by promoting characteristics such as collaboration, empathy, humility, initiative, integrity, humility and enthusiasm through our delivery of sport.

 

Competitive Greatness

Competitive Greatness is underpinned by six highly-valued personal characteristics. Each is a combination of attributes which we believe creates better players, better leaders, better team mates - and thereby better people.

Conviction - Do you commit to doing whatever it takes to achieve your own and your team’s goals in the face of mistakes, setbacks and failures?

Cohesion - Are you eager to be part of a team and willing to sacrifice personal glory for the common goal? 

Industrious - Do you display a high degree of effort in everything you do?

Humility - Do you understand yourself: your limitations as well as your strengths,  and the particular role you can play in the world?   

Enthusiasm - Do you have the drive to carry you over obstacles, and the passion for everything you do in your quest for personal and team greatness?   

Initiative - Do you have the courage to make positive decisions based on solid understanding and to act on these with strength and enthusiasm, even at the risk of failure?

Underpinning Values

The following are the values that we foster in every participant in sport at Norwich School:

Openness, Mindfulness, Sportsmanship, Self-Awareness, Perspective, Diligence, Determination, Responsibility, Commitment, Respect, Teamwork, Loyalty, Energy, Robustness, Punctuality, Presentation, Hardwork, Grit, Challenge, Win or Learn Mentality, Resilience, Drive, Inspiration, Intensity, Enjoyment and Dedication

By promoting these values, we help to develop well-rounded sports people and to create the foundations for attitudes and behaviours that will sustain our pupils for the rest of their lives.
