Horsham District Sports Development & Farlington Partnership
Ongoing partnership to provide use of Farlington’s sports facilities to enable HDS to organise and host sport festivals for pupils from local primary schools.
Horsham District Sports are able to use sports facilities at Farlington that are not available at local primary schools to enable multi-school sports events such as their annual Dodgeball and Basketball festivals. Farlington staff and pupils also run one multi-sport event with school groups recruited by Horsham District Sports.
The partnership between HDS and Farlington School has been established for approximately two years.
Farlington’s gymnasium and astro-turf, along with onsite parking and facilities are used by HDS staff along with staff, pupils and parents from local primary schools for HDS led sports events involving KS2 pupils. Farlington staff and pupils also run one multi-sport event for Year 2 pupils with school groups recruited by Horsham District Sports.
Use of Farlington’s facilities and specialist teachers enables sports activities for primary pupils who may not have otherwise experienced them.
HDS led Basketball and Dodgeball festivals involve pupils in KS2 (aged 7-11). Farlington's annual multisport event for Year 2 pupils is led by Year 10 pupils from Farlington under instruction from Farlington's specialist PE teachers.
Three annual sports festivals.
