Jake, Kai & Harley - Year 4

Jake, Kai & Harley

Above, you will find a photo of Jake, Kai and Harley after winning the Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League U10s Plate. The boys are playing up an age group, so to achieve this is absolutely incredible! The boys work hard every week and everyone is proud of them. Well done boys!

Hermione - Year 5


Hermione climbed Mount Snowdon on her holiday to Wales, which was a huge achievement that we thought was worth sharing. Her Fitbit tracked 27,000 steps; 6 hours 30 minutes; 9 miles and 3167 feet. Well done Hermione!


Lucy - Year 5


When Lucy was 6 years old (2018), Max Tennis Club, from Beccles, provided a 'Tennis Taster Session' at Elm Tree Primary School. Lucy, having never played tennis before, was issued with a special invitation letter to join their Performance Tennis Team. Lucy still trains with Max Tennis and since the age of 7 she has represented Norfolk County Tennis Team, currently playing 10U and training with 11U Team.

Lucy has achieved to date: 4 Gold Medals 5 Silver Medals and a Silver Trophy 4 Bronze Medals


Over the Easter holidays, Lucy travelled to Cambridge to attend 10U Singles Grade 3 Tournament, winning 2 out of 4 matches.


Lucy also enjoys her Athletics training at Waveney Valley 11U group. She attended a tournament over the Easter holidays with her friends from Elm Tree Primary at UEA in Norwich and came third in her group for 80m running. She also enjoyed competing in shot put.


This weekend (wb: 25.04.2022) she will be travelling to Hertfordshire playing both Saturday and Sunday for Norfolk County Tennis 10U Team Event. We have our fingers crossed 🤞. Well done and good luck Lucy!

Ashton - Year 5 & Hartley - Year 3

Ashton + Hartley

It has been an incredibly busy, yet impressive start to 2022 for Ashton and Hartley! They have competed in many events and had fantastic results:


- Horsford XC series (Running):

Ashton finished an impressive 1st, 3rd and 4th (even with a shoe related delay!). These results confirmed Ashton as the Under 11 series champion!

Hartley managed to finish in 3rd, 5th and 6th. Meaning Hartley finished 2nd in the series - his consistency in finishing helped him climb the leader board!


- Suffolk Country X-C Championships (Run):

Ashton finished at the 16th under 11's male. Very impressive!


- Crank It East X-C Race (X-C Mountain Bike):

Both boys competed in the under 10's competition with Ashton finishing in 3rd and Hartley in 4th. 


United Canine Sports New Years Rally (Canicross):

This is something that I had personally not heard of myself and will ensure I speak to Ashton about as it looks fascinating. Ashton finished his new year rally for the under 10's in 2nd place.


Ashton has also run, Hunny Bell U14 race; both boys competed in a mountain bike enduro, as well as numerous parkruns.


A fantastic sporting display from both young men. Well done to Ashton and Hartley!

Sophie was asked to step up by her football coach for her team the Waveney U11 foxes to be the goal keeper for the quarter final cup match. Not only did Sophie step up, but through her commitment and dedication and additional training she didn't let any goals in. Moreover, the team got through to the quarter final this weekend and Sophie was awarded both opposition player of the match and parent player of the match. Well done Sophie!

Hannah - Year 6


On Tuesday 5th April, Hannah attended a football session at Cambourne, Cambridge, with her Norwich Elite under 12's team. She really enjoyed her day, particularly the mini-matches they were able to play. Well done Hannah!
