Last week, a netball team came to visit us from Withington Girls' School. Our Year 5 team really enjoyed having the chance to play in a match. This term, our Year 4, 5 and 6 netball teams have all had the opportunity to complete in netball matches.

Tonight was our 1st hockey night of the year down at Timperley Sports Centre. I was extremely pleased with their team effort, especially as we had many children who haven't played in this team before. We won the 1st 2 games (both 2-0) and lost the last one (3-1). Well done and thank you to the parents who came down to support us (in the usual!).

Our netball teams are looking very smart today ready for their matches against Bowden Church School. The netball league starts next week too so we would like to wish them all good luck for all of their upcoming league matches too!

Today, our Year 5 children have planned and delivered a sports morning for Year 2 children at Stamford Park Infant School. The event was a huge success with Year 2 getting to try out new activities and games, while Year 5 children developed their leadership skills.

We are very excited to be working in partnership with Hale Lawn Tennis Club this year. Our children are enjoying some tennis days at the club during sports week this week. In addition, our Year 3 children are also having a great time accessing free tennis coaching on a Friday, as supported by the Ryder Tennis Cup. Over the course of the year, we've been delighted to send different groups of children to have a six week taster course of tennis. Many thanks for Hale Lawn Tennis Club for giving us this chance.

Last weekend, we sent a team of Year 3 children, a team of Year 4 children and two teams of Year 5 children to a tennis tournament at Bowdon Lawn Tennis Club. The children all played really well and the coaches there commented on their superb attitude. We are now furthering our links with Bowdon Lawn Tennis Club as they are delivering tennis coaching to some of our Lower Juniors every Tuesday morning. Tennis is also one of the sports that will feature quite heavily in our Sports Week at the end of June.

At Stamford Park Junior School, we are always looking to introduce new and exciting sports to the children. This afternoon, Altrincham Football Club came in to run some futsal taster sessions for Yrs 3-5. The children really enjoyed the opportunity to try a new sport and we are now looking at introducing it into our curriculum and as a club in the coming half term.

Tonight was the last of this year's hockey tournaments. The team played well and have shown how their skills have developed over the last few months. Thank you to all the parents who have come down and supported us, despite there being rather a large chance of rain!

At Stamford Park Junior School, there are a wide range of sports on offer for the children to take part in. One sport that has always proved extremely popular is our fencing club, provided by Salle Kiss Fencing Club. At the weekend, two of our talented children participated in the School Fencing Tournament. Both boys performed superbly and one of them came away with the silver medal. Congratulations to both of the boys and to all the children who have taken part in previous fencing competitions.

Following on from the Year 6 children setting up their own football club for the younger children, we had a very successful time.The final score against The Willows was an astounding 6 - 1.

Tuesday 31st January 2017


This afternoon, our Year 5 and 6 children attended the 3rd hockey tournament of the year at Timperley Sports Club. It was very chilly, although thankfully the rain held off. Unfortunately we lost our 1st 2 games against St Hughes and St Josephs, but we won our last game against Broomwood. The children played well together; both the defence and forwards dug in deep, trying hard. Well done. The next games will be on Tuesday 21st February.

Tuesday 31st January 2017


Today our new Year 6 football coaches held a football trial for Year 3 and Year 4 children. Over seventy children attended the trial and the football coaches certainly tested their skills using a range of warm ups and matches too. They've now got the tricky task of selecting their squads over the coming days, before starting off their weekly practices ready for some matches!

Friday 9th December


On the afternoon of Friday 9th December, we sent a Year 5 and a Year 6 football team to participate in the annual Altrincham Football Club tournament, held at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys. Mr Odell reported that both teams played superbly during the entire tournament, scoring some fantastic goals. Year 6 sadly lost out in the final to Broadheath Primary (who scored an impressive golden goal), while Year 5 won all their matches to bring home an impressive shield! Well done to all the players.



Thursday 1st December


A group of Year 3 children have been participating in weekly tennis sessions at Hale Lawn Tennis Club. These sessions were aimed at children who had previously had very little experience of playing tennis, as part of a scheme run by the Davis Cup. To recognise their commitment and progress, they were all presented with a tennis racket last week by Mark Furness (the coach).


Tuesday 22nd November


Last night the children played the 2nd tournament of the season at Timperley Sports. The children played extremely well together and really work as a team.  There were some superb saves by Seb, who remained calm when losing a boot too! The 1st game was against Navigation, which we won 2-0. We drew our 2nd (very intense) game against Park Road and lost the final game against Springfield; this was a friendly however you would not have known that watching both teams! Thank you to the parents who braved the cold and 'wet rain'. Well played team!

Congratulations to one member of our cross country team for coming second in the Altrincham and District Schools cross country league. This is a great achievement, as there were over seventy children in each race. The presentation of the award was made after the final race at John Leigh Park. Good luck to the whole team is all their races to come at Sale Harriers.


Tuesday 18th October


Today was the 1st of this year's (year 5 and 6) hockey tournaments at Timperley Sports.  The weather was a typical Manchester hockey night (rain, rain and more rain!), however the children did not let this dampen their spirits and carried on.  They played very well together as a team and I am sure that we will have a great season.  We won 2 (3-0 Bowdon, 7-0 Forest Gate) and lost 1 (1-0 Springfield), although the final score did not reflect the possession and grit from SPJS. Well done team, a fantastic start! Thank you also to the parents who braved the cold and rain with me.



Thursday 13th October


Our Year 6 B team took part in a netball match against St Vincent's Catholic Primary School. They've been training hard with Suzanne, our fantastic netball coach from Trafford Netball. The girls won the match 4-1 - a huge congratulations to all of them!
