We recently purchased some new sports equipment. Here is after school club testing out the new indoor volley ball, boccia and agility ladder. The children have also been enjoying the new playground equipment. I’m sure lots of fun will be had with it all!
Back in October, four pupils finished in top 6 positions at an inter school cross country competition against local schools. This qualified for them to compete against other runners who had also qualified in North Shropshire schools at Oswestry last week. Three out of the four runners finished in the top 10 with one pupil qualifying for a third round to compete against runners who have also qualified across Shropshire.
I am really proud of the determination and resilience the pupils displayed in a tough race over slippy, hilly terrain. Well done guys!
A huge well done to our amazing gymnasts who took part in an inter-school gymnastics tournament. The children had to remember and perform a floor and vault routine. They were all incredible, well done team!
Well done to our football team who competed in a tournament at Market Drayton Junior school yesterday. They were up against schools we hadn’t played against before and really held their own finishing 3rd in their group.
This was the last competition of the school year and I’d like to congratulate every single child who has been involved in the sports competitions throughout the year, whether that be inter school or inter house. The level of PE and sport is improving each year and I’m already excited for next year.
What a fantastic day we all had yesterday! The weather was great and the children all demonstrated excellent team work and sportsmanship. It was lovely to watch the older children working together and helping the younger children. I think from the smiles on everyone’s faces that a lot of fun was had by all.
Thank you to everyone who came to watch and gave up time to help and to the PTA and Mr and Mrs Chatha for providing refreshments.

We attended a cricket tournament at Whitchurch Cricket Club along with 8 other schools. Although we didn’t win, our bowling, batting and catching was admired by many. As always, the children represented the school outstandingly and demonstrated the school games values consistently. Well done team!
For the first time in over 10 years our swimming team won the small schools swimming gala. I am so proud of all the swimmers. Their determination and team work shone through on the day. A further celebration, as Archie and Taylor have been selected to represent North Shropshire at the next swimming gala. What an achievement!
The Rounders team attended a tournament at Market Drayton Junior School this morning. Unfortunately, the rain stopped play after two matches. However, our team played exceptionally well, making really good decisions and working together to win both of these matches. We will now wait to see whether a third match will be needed to determine who proceeds to the play offs on Tuesday.
Well done to the team players.
Fantastic result from the New Age Kurling competition. The team finished 3rd today in the local competition which took place at Market Drayton Junior School. Well done to all of you!
