Thanks to Mrs Fant for all her hard work towards this.

Year 5 & 6 Cross Country: Over 400 children took part in the cross country at Ashfield school on a windy Tuesday evening and what an amazing time we all had. We had entered two girls’ teams and one boys’ team that evening and what results we had. Our girls ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams won the team events, resulting in them all achieving a gold medal, with Yasmine Flynn winning the ‘B’ race receiving 2 golds - well done to them all. Our boys’ team came 13th overall out of the 24 teams taking part. As always they were a pleasure to take and their behaviour was impeccable. Thank you to parents and grandparents for transporting the children.


Year 5 & 6 Handball: This was a first for Bagthorpe taking part in a handball competition and what a competition. It was fast, furious and what fun! The children had only had four weeks to learn handball during their PE lessons with Next Level Sports and they played brilliantly. Well done to Eva, Megan, Brooke, Holly, James, Mikey, Ellis, Frazer and goalkeepers Georgia and Max in coming 2nd overall. We are looking in to more handball competitions for the team. Thank you to Mrs Hammond for accompanying the team.

A massive 'thank you' to Alyssa, Lottie, Alena, Charlie, Logan and Nathan for helping Sports Day run so smoothly.  They were the best helpers ever!

Special Olympics team with Paralympian, Ollie Hynd

Special Olympics team with Paralympian, Ollie Hynd 1
Seven of our pupils met Paralympian, Ollie Hynd, at a Special Olympics event at Lammas Leisure Centre.  They got to take part in wheelchair basketball, football, table cricket and boccia.   To end the exciting day they watched two children perform dance routines on the ice.  What a fantastic day was had by all! 

A special mention - we would like to congratulate Milli Moth, in Year 6, on her recent success in the County Swimming Championships where she competed against more than 100 girls in the 11 and under class. After swimming in 8 races, Milli’s point score was the second highest in Nottinghamshire and she is also currently ranked third in the Midlands for 50 metre backstroke. Milli treats her achievements with a genuine modesty, which is a lovely characteristic, and we are all very proud of her.

Red Sports tops and football kit:  Please can you check at home to see if any items of sports kit are hiding anywhere as we seem to have quite a few items missing and getting short on supplies!  If you do find anything, please give them a wash and iron before returning into school for other sports teams to use.  Thanks.  


A huge ‘thank you’ to all parents and grandparents for their great support and for providing transport.
