Sporting Success


Our children participate in a range of sporting events e.g. cross country, football, netball and athletics, often achieving success.


Biathlon National Championships (November 2019)

We are immensely proud that Sammy in Year 6 has become the British Biathlon Champion (Under 11) at an event in Nottingham. Her sheer determination and athletic ability led her to come 1st out of a field of over 60. What a fantastic achievement!
