24th May 2019 — Nearly 100 children from Great Ballard School took part in a Fun Fitness morning to raise money for the NSPCC. The activities included a dance workout; balloon ‘keepy-upy’; obstacle challenge; skipping; aerobics; fun run and a hockey skills session. All the pupils aged from 5 – 13 years competed in all seven challenges, with each challenge lasting for seven minutes, with only three minutes to race to their next activity. Mrs Evans, who organised the Fun Fitness morning said, ‘Everyone enthusiastically participated and had huge smiles on their faces, even though they were ready to collapse by the end of the session. The children did amazingly well and managed to raise a fantastic £1582.05 for this important children’s charity.


About Great Ballard

Great Ballard is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2 to 13. It is situated in the magnificent Eartham House set in idyllic parkland just 10 minutes from Chichester.

Our children enjoy a vibrant and genuinely all round education that is exciting, challenging and stimulating. Academic study is central to what we do and we expect all our pupils to adopt a healthy work ethic, but we also believe that to truly educate we must celebrate the creative, physical, and spiritual, as much as the intellectual.

Our aim is to nurture happy, accomplished, and well rounded children. We value self confidence, but not arrogance, and applaud gentleness and humility. We appreciate unaffected good manners and embrace traditional values. We respect individuality and recognise success, but most essentially quality of character is regarded equally as highly as achievement.

We understand that parents have a choice of a number of independent schools in West Sussex, and each is unique. How do you know if Great Ballard is right for you? We think the only way to assess what we're all about is to come and see us. We are confident you will be able to appreciate how much we care about each and every one of our children and their individual needs. Our classes are small so we can give everyone the attention they deserve.
