Teams from both schools enjoyed another week of coaching and competition tonight along with six other local schools. Our coaching tonight focused on shooting from angles as well as well as positioning when defending. As the children played their four matches we also focused on ensuring we always respect the judgement and decision of the referee recognising we are all human and all make mistakes. We also worked on encouraging each of our team members when they have succeeded but also when they have made a mistake.

Posted 18/1/2019

We kick off the new calendar year with new a fresh sport in the form of tchoukball. Individual teams from both schools enjoyed the first of a five week series of coaching and competition in the fabulous sports hall at Harrogate High.  Both teams had a great first week experiencing this fun fast paced game. For some children this was their second year experiencing tchoukball but for many it was their first experience with everyone picking up the basic skills and rules incredibly quickly. As the weeks progress we will learn more of the rules and tactics of the game competing against a range of other schools from the Harrogate area.

Marrick Priory Residential-Wednesday 12th - Friday 14th December 2018.

Posted 17/12/2018

Pupils in Year 5&6 enjoyed a terrific two night three day residential experience in the Dales at Marick Priory.

Staying in the impressive historic surrounding of the 850 year of priory children took part in a range of outdoor and adventurous activities while also learning how to be independent and away from home.


I was incredibly impressed with how well all the children took to the experience embracing a wide range of challenges supporting and encouraging each other in all they did. Throughout the three days they showed great team work, independence, and friendship. It was a pleasure to watch them all thrive in so many ways taking on challenges and always giving their very best. - Mr Griffiths

The compliments from the audience were many including one from Revd Garry Hinchcliffe who said 'the children had stolen his heart'.

After many practice and rehearsals they sounded fantastic. Well done to all who took part and many thanks to Mrs James for organising this experience for our children.
