Sporting Achievements

"Pupils are known for their sporting achievements. They excel in cross-country, athletics and swimming. Pupils enjoy netball, football, hockey, arts and crafts." OFSTED 2020

This year, Farndon is determined to build on the successes of last year. We will continue to strive to ensure that we provide all pupils with the opportunity to participate in range of different sports and to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Last Year: We engaged in several sporting events. Sadly, COVID or even extreme meant that some sporting opportunities were missed. 

Champions: Cross Country / Chester Schools Cross Country 2 golds and 1 bronze / Year 5 and 6 Athletics /  Year 3 and 4 Athletics 

Runners Up Year 5 and 6 Hockey  / Year 5 and 6 Rugby / Year 1 and 2 Football 


September 2022

Year 5 and 6 Rugby Broxton tournament. Narrowly beaten in a group game 1 - 0 which meant we didn't qualify for the semi-finals. 

October 2022

Year 3 and 4 Rugby Broxton tournament. Made it to the final but lost to Malpas 3 - 1. RUNNERS UP

Juniors Schools Cross Country Championships. We took 8 runners for the first race of the season. For Year 3 girls, Paige ran brilliantly in her first ever race and Nancy got a top 10 finish in 7th. Polly ran a brave and intelligent race and held on to win gold. Henry and Harley ran in the boys race and Henry held on for another top 10 finish in a large field of over 30 boys. The Year 4 girls race saw Mollie and Zara battle it out. Zara got gold on this occasion, with Mollie in silver. For Year 5, it was a much further distance , but that didn't phase Lara who finished in the top 10. Well done everyone.  2 GOLDS and 1 SILVER

Our girls' football team played a cup match against Mickle Trafford. The team went behind twice, but fought back to get to 2 - 2. Lucia scored to make it 3 - 2, but with only seconds left, they equalised. It went to dreaded penalties and sadly we lost. Onwards and upwards and the Christleton tournament to come. 

Our boys' football team had their first league match against Mickle Trafford. It was a resounding 13 - 1 victory. That's what you call a good start to the season. 

November 2022

Our Year 5/6 football team took on Huntingdon in another league match. On a small narrow pitch and limited minutes we slipped to a 1 - 0 defeat despite playing the better football. 

Junior Schools Cross Country Championships. Round 2 and several of our athletes took part once again. Polly won the Year 3 girls race to make it 2 in a row. In the same race, Nancy hugely improved on her last performance and came in fourth - she will be pushing for the medals next time! Alfie came back from a long time out and got a very respectable to 10 finish. The Year 4 girls race saw Zara and Mollie run a perfect tactical race with Zara winning her second gold and Molie the silver. For Year 5, Lara came home in 8th but Allegra had to finish early as did Eyra who sadly took a knock when running well in third. Well done everyone. 2 GOLDS and 1 SILVER

Our Year 5 and 6 Girls team entered the Christleton tournament with 19 other schools. They gave it their all and drew two games 0 - 0. We lost 1 - 0 to Eaton due to an own goal, but won our last game against Tarvin 1 - 0. We finished third in the group. 

Round 3 of Junior Cross Country Championships. Polly made it a hat trick of wins with another Gold medal. And in Year 4, Zara and Mollie both battled for the medals with Zara finishing first and Mollie second.  2 GOLDS and 1 SILVER

Our Infants took part in the Multi Skills event at the Heber High School. Well done to everyone who took part.  

January 2023

In January, we had archery club back. The children loved it! 

This term's sports clubs were Handball, Dodgeball, Hockey and Basketball. 

The Year 5 and 6 football team took on Tattenhall in the cup. It was an incredibly tense game. Only a penalty could split the two teams! A 1 - 0 win for Farndon. 

February 2023

Our Year 3 and 4 athletics team competed once again in the Broxton Tournament. Even with some of our athletes away, we finished second. RUNNERS UP

April 2023

Our Year 2 football team competed in the Broxton football tournament. Our Squirrels team finished fifth with 2 draws. Our Hedgehogs team managed 4 wins and a draw and finished second. RUNNERS UP.

On the same day, our Year 3 and 4 team competed against the other local schools. An early defeat to Malpas was followed by 4 wins and a draw and fabulous football. RUNNERS UP.

Our Year 5 and 6 netball team competed with other local schools. After weeks of training with Miss Brown they played so well and won 4 matches. There was 1 loss against a very good Tattenhall side which led to second place spot. RUNNERS UP

May 2023

Through Pools for Schools, we had our very own swimming pool on the school site. All our Yer 5 and 6 pupils were assessed and those needing additional lessons had up to 7 lessons to achive the national curriculum. Over the two weeks, our Year 3 and 4 pupils had 5 lots of 45 minute swimming sessions. Not only that, our Year 1 and 2 pupils didn't miss out. We had an after school club for those who fancied a swim after their lessons had finished. It was a huge success and it's something we will certainly look at again next year.
