Shenfield High School

The Annual Shenfield Sports Camp for new year 7 students has been running for over 16 years and has helped to welcome thousands of new students into life at the school as well as create friendships that have lasted the test of time. It has also helped to enthuse so many students about the vast sporting opportunities on offer at Shenfield High School.

The camp takes place in the last full week of the summer holidays, with many Year 8-13 students coming along as assistant coaches and role models to help inspire the new Shenfield students. Head of PE Mr Sapsford has been running the camp for each of the 16 Camps since the first one in 1999 and remarked, "Each year the PE staff look forward to working with the new students it really is one of the best weeks of the year when we get to meet and work with the new crop of Shenfield students. Every year parents and students tell us what a positive impact the camp has on helping the children to make friends, develop sports skills as well as settle any nerves ahead of the significant life changing land mark that starting a new school undoubtedly is.

Every year over two thirds of the intake opt to attend the sports camp so it is an event that is not to be missed so please put in the dates of the 2015 Camp into your diaries if you are a parent of a prospective Year 7 Shenfield student:
