What a fantastic year Thorplands have had – again. The children have once again taken part in a variety of competitions and activities.

The highlight has to be representing Northampton at the County Finals in Archery, with 2 teams. 1 of our teams finished 3rd in the County which in itself was a fantastic achievement. This was eclipsed by our other team who came out as winners!!!

We have also competed in a variety of other sports. These included a football tournament for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Cricket for 3 different teams and Tennis for Years 3 and 4.

The children have done really well in school too. We had a great Sports Day in the sunshine and the PE lessons have kept rolling on.

8 children also had the privilege of attending Wimbledon where we watched a variety of players including Serena Williams.


Thorplands have continued their hugely successful sporting success this term. Our KS2 Boccia team went to the County Finals and came within inches of winning the Gold medal. They were very happy with being the 2nd best team in Northamptonshire though!

We entered 3 teams into the Town Archery Competition recently. With over 50 teams involved competition was high. Another amazing effort saw Thorplands finishing in both 2nd and 3rd position! We now have a team going through to the Summer County Finals in July.

It was also really pleasing to see over 30 children represent Thorplands in the Town Cross Country competition. There were a few very impressive individual performances but the most enjoyable aspect was seeing children pull on the Thorplands top for the first time and giving their best. Well done children!
