Sports         

This years sports calendar has already allowed us to compete in three tournaments. Firstly, we took a squad of players to compete in the West Norfolk hockey tournament at Lynnsport. The squad was split into two teams who enjoyed different successes. One of the teams (SJA Tigers) reached the final in the afternoon and came away with a winners plate. They were awarded their prizes by Team GB hockey coach Danny Kerry. Congratulations to all involved. 

Our second competition saw us compete in the cluster tag rugby event. All of the children that went really enjoyed the opportunity to play and compete against other schools. Some of the children have expressed an interest in joining a local rugby side as a result. More may follow on this. 

Our third competition came in the way of an indoors athletics competition. Thanks to a lot of teamwork (one of our school core values) the team finished in second position. Please see some of the photos below...

We'd also like to mention and congratulate a former pupil of the school, Rory Gagen, whose interest of rugby started by competing in tag rugby competitions. Rory has successfully been selected, after several challenging rounds, to train with the Leicester Tigers. Good luck Rory!
