Neston footballers shine at tournament in new kit from Primary Stars!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to all of our keen footballers who took part in a cluster tournament at Corsham School on 15.11.18! We had a Neston squad of 10 players and four more children who volunteered to play for Lypiatt School because they were short on numbers. Co captains William and James P did a super job of organising their team. Many thanks to Annett Eggleton who accompanied the players to the event!

Neston pupils compete in Prior Park Biathlon at Bath University for the first time

Added on by Kate Sims.

Five of the strongest swimmers and runners in Maple Class were delighted to compete against many other schools in the Bath area on 5.10.18. The new Pentathlon World Champ Jamie Cooke and World Team Silver medal winner Joe Choong were amongst the helpers at the University of Bath, where the event took place. Each of our U10 and U11 athletes had to run 800m on the track and swim 50m in the pool. They weren’t daunted by the strong competition and everyone gave a good performance. Darcey and Billy’s performances qualified them for the British Championships!

Many thanks to Mrs Eggleton and Kate for supervising our Y3/4 boys and girls and our Y5/6 boys and girls teams at Biddestone Sport Ground on the afternoon of 2.10.18. The junior teams ran 1.2km and the senior teams ran 1.6. Everyone tried their hardest and was a credit to Neston School. The stand out runners were: Holly who placed 8th in the Y3/4 girls race; Seb, who placed 7th in the year 3/4 boys race; Cerys who placed 7th in the Y5/6 girls race and, fastest of all, Olivia who placed 4th in the Y3/4 girls race!

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to the netball team who played a total of 5 matches against other schools in our cluster on 20.09.18 and 27.09.18. All of the games were very exciting - they won 3, drew one and lost one. Top goal scorer was James though … also scored crucial goals. All of the team tried out different positions and all of them gained in skill and knowledge from the experience. Cerys and Emily were super first time captains.

Bristol Standard Award

Added on by School Administrator.

Huge congratulations to Mrs Alway and her team for gaining the Bristol Standard for another year.  The assessors were particularly impressed with our use of "See-saw" and how it was supporting the interaction between home and school creating positive partnerships between families and school.  They also liked how we had developed our outside space and enjoyed seeing it being used by the children.

 Well done Mrs Alway and the team -  we are hugely proud of your achievements.

Neston Rugby Team Triumph at Tournament!

Added on by Maple.

A huge congratulations to the Neston Rugby Team (Tom, Sam, Ned, Emily, Maddy, Oscar, George, Lauren and Ellie) who have won the Level 2 cluster tournament! Sadly, because the event was postponed from March, we've missed the opportunity to compete in the Level 3 competition. Also, well done to Seth, Ed, Lenny and Daniel who came along to gain competition experience for next year's event by playing for Lypiatt School, who didn't have enough pupils to field a full team.

Thank you to all parent supporters and to Mark Dellar for this great photo!
