As well as this, we offer a range of sports clubs before school, during break time, lunch time and after school which are highly popular with children of ages ranging through the school.
Hockey Tournament Week
This half term, our PE focus has been hockey. At the start of each term we break down the demands of each sport and practice them. This culminates in an end of term competition between teams within each your group.

Fantastic running from all involved. Our boys finished 2nd overall and some strong top 10 finishes from our girls.
25th November 2017
An extremely wet, windy and cold morning at Longford Park! Some more fantastic results for St Matthew’s. Joshua Wilkes finished on the podium for a second time in as many races. Amazing work from everyone involved.
9th December 2017
Another fantastic week for our Cross Country team. The inclement weather conditions meant the race had to be moved to a very muddy field at Longford Park. All our athletes performed amazingly, a special mention for Evan Lewis, who finished 2nd in the year 5 boys race. Cross country will now return after Christmas on Saturday 20th January. Well done to all athletes involved and thank you to parents for your continued support.
