Church of England Junior School

Basingstoke Schools Sportshall Athletics Finals

Eight wins in a row.


On the 9th March twelve St Mary’s children travelled to Richard Aldworth to compete against the top seven Indoor Athletics Schools in the borough.

We have won this trophy for the past 7 years and so our pupils were keen to retain the title.

Highly motivated and eager to start, the children set off to their individual events of sprints, jumps and throws. We amassed 13 superb wins out of 22 events, 4, 2nd places, 3, 3rd positions, 1, 4th and 1, 5th. These outstanding results ensured St Mary’s were in the gold medal position for the 8th consecutive year, 120 points ahead of the 2nd placed school. Our top performing athletes were Ella with 47 points and Zane with 45 points. All children received gold medals and 2 more trophies to go into our trophy cabinet which is bursting at the seams!

A massive thank you to our supportive parents and family members who are always willing to help us achieve our success.
