Sports teams and clubs

Football Match

Our first football match of the season at St. Mary's, Askham Richard resulted in a 3 - 2 win for us. It was a brilliant match with superb skills and teamwork shown from both sides. The official match report is below.

Unfortunately, our match against Rufforth has been cancelled due to inclement weather and pitch conditions.

Dance Festival

The year 3 and year 4 children had an excellent time at the Tadcaster cluster dance festival. They enjoyed performing our Jai Ho dance on the stage at Tadcaster Grammar School and made us incredibly proud. Children were mesmerized by the other performances; both from other primary schools and that of the Grammar students. The afternoon finished with all the pupils performing a dance. A huge thank you to our faithful followers for their support.

District Cross Country

A huge congratulations to our pupils who took part in the Selby District Cross Country Race today. We were incredibly proud of their achievements. A special mention goes to Oliver in Borrowers who qualified to represent the District Team in the North Yorkshire Finals in March.


The whole school enjoyed football sessions with Mr Scoreby on Friday and they absolutely loved it! These sessions will continue throughout the year and will also focus on multi-skills and team building.


We still have lots of unclaimed posters and wristbands in school following our sponsored event. These were handed out to the children but have then been left in classrooms. If you think your child should have a poster or wristband and hasn't brought it home, could you please put a message in their planner for the attention of Ms. Holmes or Miss Richardson. Thank you.

Dance Festival

Unfortunately the Dance Festival for Year 1 and Year 2 children that was due to take place on Monday has had to be postponed. The revised date will be given as soon as the festival has been rearranged.

Mini Soccer

Pupils from Years 3 and 4 had a great time representing the school at Tadcaster Grammar in a 5-a-side football tournament. Two teams were entered and came joint 1st and 3rd. The children shouted each other on and applauded the opposing teams. It would be fantastic if we had a parent or member of the community that could offer up some of their time to run a football club at school. Please contact Georgina Holmes on the school number if interested.
