Cross Country 

On Monday 17th October we took part in the Inter-Schools cross country at Brayton Academy.  All our team did extremely well, and congratulations goes to Ruby, Harry and Shannon who all qualified to the semi-finals at Tadcaster in a few weeks time.

Our Sports Committee is responsible for improving the level of sport in school, and help organise events and matches within school and against other schools.  The committee also helps decide what tournaments we attend and what sporting equipment we could buy for school.  Committee members are:  Evie Burton, Zara Chappell, Shannon Tahany, Daniel Stocks, Abigail Dagg and Sophie Sayner.

Last week was a busy week for sport!  On Wednesday 18th May we took part in the Quadkids event at Selby High School where we came 3rd.  Last Friday 20th May representatives from years 3 and 4 took part in a tennis tournament at Brayton High School.

On Wednesday 13th January 2016 a group of our year 5 & 6 children took part in the Selby area swimming and multi-sports gala at Selby Leisure Centre.  This was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and we managed to secure a few first and second positions in our heat.  Overall our school came fourth out of eight schools taking part.  Some of the activities included:  Curling, bowls, table tennis and a dance challenge.

 On Wednesday 10th June we had representatives from all year groups taking part in a Quadkids competition at Selby High School.  We competed against other schools in events such as long jump, sprint, javlin and long distance running.  All the children taking part were true ambassadors for our school well done!


We held our annual Sports Day on 12th June 2015.  This was a wonderful event and we think it fair to say that the children did us all proud.  This years victors were Masingi Team (green) with an overall lead of 10 points.

On 3rd June 2015 our school cricket team competed in a tournament at Selby Cricket Club.  Please see below for a full match report by Daniel, Team Captain...

"The tension was rising as much as the temperature as we headed out to the pitch. The opposition bowled the first ball, we hit it and it went flying, so did all the others during our first match!  We had got off to a great start.  The games got harder as the day went on, with the last game being the most difficult.  The bowlers on the opposition were amazing, but thanks to our fielding skills we made them lose most of their points.  After a fantastic day, Whitley and Eggborough School came first and we are looking forward to the finals in Beverly in a couple of weeks time!"
