Lynn Grove Sport
Pupils at Lynn Grove benefit from the best sporting facilities for miles around. We have extensive playing fields, a large 3G all-weather pitch, newly refurbished tennis courts and netball courts and well equipped sports hall. Our facilities allow us to offer a wide range of sporting options. Football, Rugby, Netball and Hockey are popular options and in recent years our teams have excelled at local county and national levels. Cross country and athletics are well represented in our sporting calendar and we participate in numerous competitions. We were proud to win the District Athletics Cup in June 2016 for the first time in many years and are determined to maintain this standard.

The wide range of sports on offer means that core PE is popular with boys and girls alike and for those with a real passion for playing and sports leadership we run both GCSE and Btec PE courses.

After school our sports facilities are always busy as pupils participate in a range of clubs and coaching. Pupils leaders play a substantial role in supporting the younger children and we also enjoy working with our cluster primary schools. What is more our relationship with Norwich City Football Club through the community hub allows us to increase the range of sporting opportunities available to our pupils.
