A huge well-done to our four tennis stars, who represented St Alban’s, at Wickersley School and Sports College.
It was a challenging competition and our children played very well to secure overall second place. Well done!
Year 5 had a brilliant day, taking part in the 1st DSAT Sports Festival. Over the course of the day, they had taster sessions for 17 sports, including basketball, curling and long jump. They all were absolutely fantastic and had a go at every single sport with 100% enthusiasm and energy!
Take a look at our photos in the gallery.

Hello sports fans, this is this weeks hot news. First, we had the Y3-Y4 boys coming second in the South Yorkshire football finals. They came so close and left with their heads held high. Also, Mrs Jepson said that their performance was outstanding.
Yesterday, Y5-Y6 team A did an outstanding routine in there advanced level gymnastics. They came second and nearly secured first place for the Rotherham finals. Team B advanced level came third with another outstanding performance and should be proud coming in this position.
