We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to:

Mr Morton (P.E co-ordinator)
The boys kicked on from their draw against Glen Hills with a convincing 3-0 win against an in-form Parklands Primary. Goals from Rhys and Dhruv capped an excellent team performance- Dhruv’s direct goal from a corner was sublime!
Curtis, Rocco and Ollie looked solid in defence, Mr Morton was very pleased with their clean sheet. Charlie and Max were as determined as ever in midfield, with Charlie captaining the team in a professional style.
Well done boys, we are proud of you!
Two very good performances from our girls team with them drawing one game 2-2 and winning the other 2-0. The girls have improved in every game they have played, well done to them all.
