Year 4 Jingle Jog 

Wednesday 27th November 2019

Today we took 79 pupils from year 4 to the annual  3 km jingle jog at Sherwood Pines Forest Park.

What a fantastic morning with these 13 pupils who were super organised and showed true teamwork and determination. They played 7 matches in total, Won 5 Draw 1 Lost 1. They came 2nd Overall and should be very proud of themselves.

Year 5&6 Sports Hall Athletics Competition 2019

This was held at Outwood Valley and this year we entered one team which consisted of 6 Boys  and 6 Girls.

Each pupil had to take part in 3 field events and 2 track events. The field events took place first and by the end we were in 4th place. Then in the track we did incredibly well and got into 3rd place, however a messy baton change in the boys relay race cost us dearly and we dropped points. That meant we ended up in 4th place and annoyingly only 1 point behind 3rd place. 

Everyone of the team did their absolute best and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Girls Champion of champions match V Redlands


Thursday 2nd May 2019

Today our Girls team had a really great football match against Redlands school in the champions of champions league finals. Both teams played some excellent football. Amelia was amazing on the right wing combining well with Alicia in defence and Miley up front. We had so much possession but just couldn’t score. In fact it was Redlands that took the lead after a long ball over our defence and Chloe had no chance to save in goal. Half time was 1-0, however after the break Redlands scored again and seemed a lot stronger. We gambled and pushed Alisha up the pitch and it paid off after she scored. We had more chances but the Redlands keeper was to good. Final score was 2-1 to Redlands. A great game and good advert for girls football. #TeamWorkMakesTheDreamWork

Girls Football Matches V Norbridge, CarrHill and Prospect 


Friday 8th March 2019


The Girls team played 3 matches this afternoon all of them were well contested and played with teamwork, respect and the girls improved every game. 

We had 3 girls playing for the first time and they all showed excellent skills and are learning the game. 

The first game V Prospect we played well but chased the ball a bit and didn’t really play like we can. We lost 2 - 0 but didn’t give up and showed resilience. 

The second game V Carr Hill was a bit more evenly contested. We took the lead with Darcy Fox scoring in her first ever match for school. They equalised and then went ahead but with 2 minutes to go Bella Hothersall scored to bring it back to 2-2. That was the final score too.

In our final game against Norbridge we really struggled but still didn’t give up and showed pure determination and perseverance in the true spirit of gameship.We lost 2-0 but the score doesn’t reflect at all on the Girls effort and performance.
