Stockport Schools’ Cross-Country League
Our participation at this event continues to grow with over 30 children regularly braving the elements to attend the races at Woodbank Park. We have had some incredible individual performances, most notably – Imogen (Y4) – who has won every race so far; Sophie (Y4) has also been in the top five in every race and Lauren (Y5) finished 10th in the last two races. In the boys’ events, Sam (Y4), Oliver (Y4) and Liam (Y5) have regularly featured in the top 10. However, the overall team performances have been stunning and we currently have 5 teams in podium positions – you can follow the links below for a full set of results from each race. Of course, there are still two races to go and anything can happen but the children have already done us proud. You are all fantastic.
Well done to all our runners that have competed so far this season.

We have also had some of our runners competing at Wythenshawe Park this season with tremendous success. Imogen (Y4), Sam (Y4), Lauren (Y5), Finlay (Y5), Freya (Y6), Jonathan (Y6) and Will (Y6) have all represented the school really well, with Imogen, Sam, Will and Finlay all having top 10 finishes.
Marple Hall High School
On a rainy night back in November, we took an elite team of 24 runners for the annual Cross Country Championships at Marple Hall High School. It was well worth the trip though as our amazing team won 10 out of the possible 12 awards given out. Individually, we saw Imogen (Y4), Lauren (Y5) and Will (Y6) win their respective races and Sam (Y4), Sophie (Y4) and Liam (Y5) all claiming the runners-up prize. In the team event, it was a clean sweep as High Lane won every race. Huge congratulations to all members of our teams.
Year 3/4 Girls’ Team: Chloe, Rose G, Sophie, Beth, Rose A and Imogen.
Year 3/4 Boys’ Team: Jack, Sam, Jordan, Oliver, Harley and Theo.

Year 5/6 Boys’ Team: Liam, Isaac, Finlay, Zak, Jonathan and Will.
South Area Football Cup
Earlier this term we entered a team into the Stockport South Area Football Cup. Unfortunately, in the first round we were drawn against a very good team from Norbury. It was a very even game up until the final 10 minutes when Norbury showed their strength and were worthy winners in the end; a valiant effort none the less by our team of Oli, Zac, Mason, Frankie, Rylan, Sam, Will and Dennis.
Santa’s Sleigh Bell Relay
Our final sporting event of the term was our annual fun-filled Sleigh Bell Relay where we invite family members to come and join in to find out what it’s all about. Despite the terrible conditions, we had a fantastic turnout and everyone enjoyed themselves; if not the actual running, then they certainly enjoyed the refreshments afterwards. Special thanks to Mrs Wilson who worked harder than anyone in baking many, many delicious cakes.
