Our team also attended a tournament held at maiden castle (organised by Durham & Chester-Le-Street Schools Sports Partnership) along with a B team.

Cross Country: Spring 2015
Once again there was a fantastic effort made by the children of Year 5 and 6 in the Chester-le-Street Schools Cross Country competition.

Both the girls and boys teams finished as runners up too.
