We did extremely well and won – 2 gold medals, 12 silver medals and 6 bronze medals.

Beach Soccer

On Monday a team of eight girls and on Tuesday a team of 8 boys from Years 5/6 took part in Beach Soccer competitions. Everyone tried really hard and they were a credit to the school.


On Thursday a group of Year 5 children took part in a cricket tournament at Rottingdean Cricket pitch. It was a lovely afternoon, the children played well and it was an excellent experience for them. At the end of the competition the school received a Kwik Cricket set.
What a busy week we have had taking part in all these sporting activities. I would like to thank all the children that took part and all the staff for their hard work in organising this.
Well done everyone.


Our congratulations go to Monica Marshall and Roman Waters-Stewart from Year 3 for achieving a Red Sash at White Crane Kung Fu.
