Second place for both our Ravens and Girls football teams in the Haddenham Tournament, but we still qualify for the County Finals. Our Ravens had an incredible day, reaching the final of the tournament without conceding a single goal, but unfortunately we couldn't keep that run going in the final, which resulted in a narrow 0-1 loss. Star Player: Alex. For our girls, they also had an excellent tournament with a great run showing some great skill and team work, but like the Ravens, they were not quite able to keep up the good run into the final. Star player: Edie-Mae.  

An incredible start to the sporting year sees us enter three competitions, with 2 winners medals and a runners up medal as well. Last week our Eagles football team got off to a promising start to the year when they managed to reach the final of the SSP boys tournament, where we showed excellent skill and potential, but unfortunately it was not quite enough to get us the win in the final. This meant we had to accept a runners up position. Star players: William and George.

Also our girls football team continued their amazing run of momentum, and was able to win their first event of the year by winning all of their games but one which ended as a draw. All the signs are there for it to hopefully be an another amazing year of football for our girls. Star Player: Kimberley 

This week also saw us qualify into the School Games final event to represent the Mandeville School Sports Partnership for the first time this year, with our amazing Handballers. Winning all of their games, this was a result that never looked in doubt. Star Players: Alex and Kaiden.

Last year saw unprecedented sporting success for Bedgrove Junior School, in many different areas of the curriculum, at so many different levels. Quote of the year had to be, ‘I didn’t think I liked sport, but after this, I’m definitely going to join a sports club at secondary school.’ So many children have challenged themselves, grown and become more confident. Just a few of our highlights are featured below.

  • Qualification for Bucks & Milton Keynes School Games in a record number of events, Girls Football, Badminton, Swimming , Basketball and both lower and upper school Tennis.
  • Double winners at the Haddenham Football Tournament, with both the boys and girls teams finishing as overall winners.
  • Our choir performed at the O2 as part of Young Voices at at the Mayor's Carol Service.
  • Increased focus in Cross Country, resulting in some great performances at District Cross Country.
  • Girls football team win the Ignite Football Tournament at Oxford City and progress all the way to the Southern Final of the England Schools FA competition.
  • Dance and drama at the Honeycomb Festival at The Waterside Theatre and at Whizz Fizz.
  • 2nd Place at the Y6 Athletics competition at Mandeville School, where all children had to compete in both long and short distance running, as well as long jump and a howler throw.
  • Both our Ravens and Falcons football teams winning the local Football Leagues – a fantastic year for both our girls and boys football teams.
  • 2nd Place in District Athletics. No one at the school can remember us placing so highly in the past (some of us have been here for a very long time!)
  • The introduction of House Days, where children work with others in their house, across the year groups, to win the House Trophy.
  • Taster sessions in fencing at Aylesbury High School as part of Girls Active.
  • Shortlisted nominees for the Primary School of the Year at the Bucks & Milton Keynes School Games.

Above are just a small number of events that we’ve been involved, having entered a record number this year. For us, it’s not all about the winning, whilst we need to provide opportunities for children to shine and excel in sport, it is also vitally important to provide all children with an opportunity to be involved, fostering a lifetime love of sport and the vital life skills that come hand in hand with it.

An amazing 47% of our children have participated in events involving other schools this year; no mean feat for a school as large as ours. This jumps to an incredible 83% when we include our sports festivals at The Grange School and our transition event with Y2, which involved all the children in years 3 and 4 trying out various multiskills events.

If you have any comments to make regarding PE, including suggestions or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact us on We look forward to an exciting 2018/2019 season.
