Basketball Club

We're big fans of basketball in Years 5&6, a sport that really promotes all-around fitness and which can be played by children of all shapes and sizes. We practice shooting, dribbling, defence and passing, both indoors and out, using our full-size playground hoops, working on improving skills and stamina.

Season update - November

In November, our Year 5/6 Basketball team took on the best players in town at the Stevenage Festival. With 15 schools involved, competition was tough, but with our girls in amazing form, we secured five wins and a draw in the group stage. This was enough to see the team through to the final, where a last-minute free-throw from Madhumitha took the game to extra time, before Grace secured the win with an amazing basket with the last shot of the game. Having received their gold medals, the team then qualified to represent Stevenage at County Finals later in the month. This was a really challenging competition, but the team gave everything they had and finished ranked as the 8th best team in the whole of Hertfordshire!
