School Sports Teams and Clubs

28th-30th March 2022 – Classroom to 3k

Following 10 weeks of training, the whole school took part in this event. Each year group had a set time to complete as many laps as they could around our track; some children ended up running twice the distance!  Our Sports Ambassadors did a fantastic job helping each session to run smoothly.  The children were very proud to receive a medal on completion.  We hope it has given some of our children the ‘running bug’!

25th March 2022 – Killerton Cross Country

32 children from across the school took part in a Cross Country event at Killerton.  Both our Year 3 and 4 teams finished 1st  The year 5 and 6 boys’ team and girls’ team finished 1st and 2nd respectively.  It was a great day with fantastic results!

23rd March 2022 - Devon Netball Finals
 

Following their success last month, the netball team from Year 6 had the opportunity to play against teams from across Devon at the multi-sports hub in Paignton.  The children played brilliantly and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  They came 7th place in their group.

We're on our way to Wembley!
 
8th March 2022 - EFL KIDS Cup
 
Our school football team achieved the incredible as they won the League 2 South Region KIDS Cup and will now live every footballer's dream of playing at Wembley Stadium.
 
The team, who were representing Exeter City as well as the school after winning the Exeter City KIDS Cup previously, left the school residential for the day and travelled up to Swindon for the tournament.
 
They began with five tough group games in Group A, beating Forest Green Rovers, Crawley Town and Northampton Town, drawing with the hosts Swindon Town and narrowly losing to Colchester United.  This meant they finished with 10 points and topped the group on goal difference, meaning they advanced to the semi-finals where they met Walsall.
 
It was a tough game and the team had to dig deep to to earn a 2-0 win and a place in the final.
 
In the final against Bristol Rovers, a goal in the first half by Harley was enough to win the game 1-0, win the tournament and earn their place at Wembley Stadium in the League 2 final against North Region winners, Tranmere Rovers.
 
The team of Ollie, Jack, Ben K, Luca, Tom, Harley and Ben G were, again, a real credit to the school with their attitude and sportsmanship, as much as their play.  Their team work is fantastic and has earned this amazing opportunity.  The Federation couldn't be prouder of what they have achieved so far.
1st February 2022 - Netball Tournament
 
A team from Year 6 were up against 6 other teams from schools across Exeter.  The Stoke Hill children played brilliantly, all managing to score at least one goal.  They won 4 out of their 6 games and came 2nd out of 7 teams.  A highlight was their 9-0 win!
 
Spring Term 2022 - Classroom to 3k
 
All children at the Junior School are currently undertaking a 10-week training programme for our upcoming 'Classroom to 3k' event.  We are seeing fantastic progress and enthusiasm from the children as they clock up their laps round our newly resurfaced track each week!  Watch this page for more details on this event.
6th January 2022 - EFL KIDS Cup
 
We are extremely proud to be able to say that we are the EFL KIDS Cup Champions for Exeter!
 
The 6-a-side tournament, which is run by Exeter City as part of a national English Football League competition, was held at Exeter University and our team were one of twenty-one present.
 
We started in Group 4 against Exeter School, Topsham and West Cliff and the team quickly adapted to the different rules in this format, as well as the cold and wet weather!  An impressive 5-1 win over Exeter School was then followed by two more convincing wins, 7-0 against Topsham and 6-0 versus West Cliff.
 
After winning our group, we then faced Wynnstream in the quarter finals.  It was a tough game, which we eventually won 3-0.
 
The semi-finals were next and an excellent performance saw us record another 6-0 win, this time against Clyst Heath.  Before the final, the team got chance to watch a penalty shoot out in the other semi-final, where our opponents for the final St. Nicholas overcame Exeter School.
 
We started the final a little nervously and Oli had to make a couple of good saves when it was still 0-0.  After that, we slowly began to take more control of the game and deservedly took the lead.  We then built on this lead with two more goals in quick succession, before St. Nicholas scored a late consolation, leaving us as
3-1 winners and Champions of the tournament.
 
The team of Oli, Jack, Ben K, Luca, Tom, Harley and Ben G played some fantastic football and were a real credit to the school with their attitude and sportsmanship, as much as their play.
 
As winners, we now move onto the next stage where will be representing Exeter City at a regional EFL tournament, with the opportunity to move on to the finals at Wembley Stadium.
Tag Rugby Club
 
We are excited to have the Exeter Chiefs community coaches starting a new Tag Rugby club.
 
The club is being run for years 5-6 for five weeks, before switching to years 3-4 for another five weeks.
 
The club has proved popular and we hope to offer further opportunities later in the school year.
 
 
Dance Club
 
Dance club is now up and running again and has proved very popular.
 
Around thirty year 5s have signed up for the programme being run by a qualified dance teacher.
 
We are looking forward to watching the final performance after seeing the dances our year 6s created last year when the instructor came into work with them.

Gymnastics Club

The ever popular Gymnastics club is continuing.

We are delighted to see around thirty children of varying ages taking part in a programme that can lead to a British Gymnastics grading.

15th November 2021 - Exeter Primary Football League
 
This week saw the long-awaited return to league action as this year's team headed to St. Peter's for our opening two Group B matches.
 
A fantastic team performance saw us run out 12-1 winners in our first match against Stoke Canon. The goals in this dominant display were scored by Harley (2), Jack (2), Amir (2), Luca (2), Leo (2), Tom and Ben K.  Despite the one-sided scoreline, the game was played in the right spirit by both teams.
 
The second match against Broadclyst Blue was a much closer game and the team had to show their battling qualities against a tough opponent.  We created the better chances and were eventually rewarded when Jack scored the winner in the second half to clinch a 1-0 win.  Ben G helped to lead the defensive effort and Oliver kept his first clean sheet.
 
Mr McKimm was very impressed with the standard of the teamwork and how well they adapted to two very different games.
