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. We are hoping next year to turn those Runner Up sports to Champions and also do better in the hockey. 

Champions: Chester Schools Cross Country 2 golds and 1 silver / Year 5 and 6 Football /  Year 5 and 6 Rounders 

Runners Up Year 3 and 4 Rugby  / Year 5 and 6 Netball / Year 1 and 2 Football / Year 3 and 4 Football / Year 3 and 4 Cricket


September 2023: 

Sadly, cross country was cancelled. However, the rugby for Year 5 and 6 got to go ahead. With victories over Malpas and Shocklach, we made the semis. Lost this time round but they can be very proud of how well they played. 

October 2023

It's cross country again. We competed in the Broxton team event and came joint third. Anna Edney won her race in Year 1 and Sophie came second. Thea got a first place and Jessica came in second for Year 2. Henry put in a spirited performance and finished in bronze and the race of the day was in Year 5 with Mollie coming first and Zara came in second. Well done everyone for all you effort and hard work in very difficult conditions. 

We took 10 pupils to the Chester Schools cross country. Yr 3 girls Flo won bronze and Yr 3 boys saw Henry win bronze and Blake bagged a silver. In Yr 4 girls Polly won a well earned silver. 2 bronze and 2 silver.

Our Yr 3 and 4 rugby team competed in the Broxton tournament. They played so well and in a tough group they topped the group. Sadly, we lost in the semi final in extra time.

November 2023:

It was the second round of the Chester Schools Cross Country and once again Farndon pupils were in amongst the medals! The Year 3 boys amazingly came 1st, 2nd and 3rd! Henry won gold, Blake bagged his second silver and Oscar was so proud with his bronze medal, having finished 5th last time. The Year 3 girls braved the tough conditions with Evelyn and Harriet achieving another top 10 finish. Polly, in Year 4, got her second medal of the season, finishing third. Finally, Zara was out with a point to prove after not medalling last time out. A truly dominant performance where she led from start to finish and even beat most of the boys - another gold to add to her collection. 2 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronze

The third cross country race and it was one to remember for the Year 3 boys. Blake and Henry were in a race to the line. This time Blake took gold and Henry silver. 1 gold and 1 silver. 

The Year 5 and 6 girls football team took part in the Christleton tournament. They won 3 matches, drew 2 and lost one, scoring 7 goals! They finished runners up in their group. 

December 2023:

It was the turn of the boys football team at Christleton. Sadly, several teams pulled out due to the cold weather. We only played 3 matches with 2 draws and 1 defeat. 

It was the final Cross Country race as part of the Cheshire Schools Cross Country Championship and soe of our pupils were competing for overall medals! Under huge pressure, Henry managed to win his second gold medal to achieve overall gold. 1 Overall Gold; 1 Overall Silver; 2 Overall Bronze; Year 3 Boys Overall Gold. 

January 2024:

The first sporting event of 2024 was the Broxton Indoor Athletics tournament at the Heber High School. With a squad of 20 children we scored 30 points, achieving a first place finish. Year 3 and 4 Athletics Champions!
