PE and School sport is a real strength of our school - we have an exceptionally talented group of children across a range of different sports. Many of our children compete at local, regional and national level in sports such as netball, dance, football and gymnastics. Our school teams are very successful when they compete in tournaments, festivals and other sporting events. This resulted in many of our teams going through to the Bucks youth games finals and even the National youth games finals last year. Our netball team were undefeated in the league last year.
57% of our children competed in a school sports team last year and 68% of our children attended an after school sports club.
We have an excellent team of staff who deliver the majority of our school sports and who support other teachers to deliver quality PE sessions particularly in the areas of dance and gymnastics.

Cross Country Event - Saturday 4th November at Turnfurlong School.
Twenty one boys and girls from across the school took part in this event on Saturday morning. The pouring rain did not squash the enthusiasm of any of the children who came to run this challenging course. Year 5 and 6 children ran approximately 1200m, Year 4 children 1000m and Year 3 children approximately 700m round a soggy and slippery course at Turnfurlong Junior School. Mrs Makepeace and Miss Bates were really pleased with the perseverance and stamina of all the children who took part and would like to thank all the parents who brought their children along to this event.
Lucy Workman (4NP) came 3rd in the Year 4 girls race and received a bronze medal for this and the Year 4 girls team, Lucy Workman, Edie-Mae Hurrell (4LT) and Kimberley Richardson (4NP) came 2nd in the Year 4 team event, winning a silver medal each.
The rest of the results are as follows:
Lily Jackson (6CM) 31, Kayleigh Parkins (6JR) 32, Josh Gasson (6CM) 19, Adam Ward (6CM) 20, Martha Edwards (5KL) 5th, Teddy Cawston (5CA) 4th, Leo Soames-Pearson (5NA)15th, Matthew Lewis (4LC) 7th, George Spriggs18th , Arnav Rai (4NP) 41, Saif-Ali Khan (4LT) 49, Callum McArthur (3MA) 9, James Godley (3HW) 23, Alfie Cawston (3HW) 24, Archie Page (3HW) 43, Finley Groat (3MA) 49, Dexter van Loggerenberg (3EA) 60 and Chloe Prickett (4LT)
We are delighted to announce that Bedgrove Junior School are the winners of the local FA 7 a side competition in both the Mixed and Girls tournaments. Both teams faced stiff opposition, with the girls progressing to the final via a win and two draws. In the final the girls pulled out all the stops, resulting in a 2-0 win and they now progress to the County Final in Beaconsfield in November. The boys also performed extraordinarily well, reaching the semi-finals through two wins and a single loss. A draw in the semis meant that the boys played extra time before moving to nail-biting penalties. They held their nerve, winning through to the final, which they again won on penalties. They too are now through to the County Final in Beaconsfield. We are incredibly proud of everyone involved.
Star Players – Grace and Kaiden
We are equally delighted with our Handball Teams who participated in a fast-paced tournament on 12th October. Looking at the progression of our teams year on year, we are setting a firm skills base for the future. With any team all we expect is for children to try to achieve their personal best and whilst we did not win on this occasion, two of our players were complimented by Aylesbury Grammar School staff. Well done to Rosie on the purple team – recognised for being the first player on any team to drive forward, employing excellent techniquee. Also, to Mohsin, also on purples, recognised for his amazing goalkeeping antics. Hopefully he didn’t have too many bruises the next day!
Star players - Mohsin (Purple) Ciaran (Yellow)
A big thank you to all the parents who came along to cheer on the teams at these events. A massive thank you also to Mr Panter and Mr Friend who helped out with refereeing at the football tournament, enabling BJS staff to concentrate on coaching the team. We very much appreciate your support.
