Sporting Achievements 2017-18
The school has a very successful reputation for sport in the Preston area. This reputation has been established by the hard work and dedication of many staff at the school to run coaching sessions and clubs either before school, after school or at lunchtimes. In recent years, the school has won many local and regional sporting events across a wide range of sports and many age groups.
Building on from the success of the 2016/17 year of sport, the school has again demonstrated consistency across all sports within the Preston area. In March of 2016 the school was proud to receive the award for ‘Primary School of the Year’ at the Preston Sports Awards and went on to receive the ‘Highly Commended’ award at the Lancashire Sports Awards recently. These awards are testament to the dedication towards sport that the school has.
The school is an active member of the Preston Schools’ Sports Council and actively take part in a wide range of sporting festivals and competitions enabling children from Year 1 to 6 to represent their school against other schools in Preston. Below is a link to a website that illustrates the sporting achievements for this academic year. Previous awards and achievements can also be viewed from this website page.
It is worth noting that over 40 schools regularly participate in these various competitions. The school currently sits in third place at present in the Preston Schools Sports Championships.
We are the reigning champions for Year 3 and 4 gymnastics in Lancashire and the current holders of the Harold Slater shield for football. These are two very prestigious awards that the school is highly proud of. The school has once more been awarded the Gold Award for PE and Sport in school by the School Games Association.
