County Cross Country Team

Congratulations to the children who have been selected to represent Tewkesbury in the Gloucestershire Primary Schools’ Cross Country Championships.

The children have ran some brilliant times in each cross country event, here in Tewkesbury. Now it is their time to show off their skills at St Edwards Preparatory School on Saturday 2nd March. Good luck to all runners!

Tewkesbury Champions!

The past few weeks have seen some brilliant football skills being played.

Last week Years 5 and 6 saw victory at the Tewkesbury Football League tournament for the 2nd year in a row. During these matches they conceded no goals! A brilliant performance!

This week has seen similar success as our Year 4 team took part in their respective Football League tournament. The beginning of the day saw us in fourth place, however, the boys showed some fantastic ball skills and won every match! Due to these wins, it meant that we ended up with the overall high score and thus the Tournament Champions!

Well done to all those in Year 4, 5 and 6!

County Finals

Some brilliant footwork from the Girl’s football team this week as they represented Tewkesbury at the County Finals Football competition. The girls played fantastically and while we just missed out on going to the regional finals it is a pleasure to have secured 3rd place in the whole County!

Tewkesbury Schools League Champions!

Well done to the C of E football team, who have been crowned the Tewkesbury Schools League Champions!

C of E began the last round of league games in first place after putting in some excellent performances before Christmas. This time around, it was a much tighter affair, but with a 2-0 win in their last match, they finished top with 48 points, 2 points above Tirlebrook in 2nd, followed by Twyning, John Moore, Mitton, Queen Margaret’s and Hopeland School!

The win means C of E completed the League and Cup double after winning the Tewkesbury District ESFA Cup earlier in the season.

An excellent season and fully deserved, well done to all involved!

Athletics update

On Saturday 17th June our KS2 athletics team competed in the Cotswold Shield Athletics event at the Prince of Wales stadium in Cheltenham.

The children competed brilliantly in both track and field events, against 5 other schools from the Gloucestershire area. Tewkesbury C of E came top in the individual  races winning or coming second in many races. The relay events were closely fought for first and second place. After a tense announcement, the results came in with just one point in it for first place between Tewkesbury and Lechlade school.

After the closest Cotswold Shield for many years Tewkesbury C of E Athletics team were awarded second place overall, after a fantastic competition. Congratulations to all our competitors and a huge thank you to all parents, friends and family who came to support the event on such a warm day!

A shining example of sportsmanship shown by all who competed!
