Here at Huntington Community Primary School, we strongly believe that children should be given the opportunity to:
'play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.' (KS2 Curriculum)
At Huntington, we aim to provide pupils with a wide range of opportunities to take part in inter-school competition - some of the pupils' recent achievements are listed below.
Football (January 2024)
In an outstanding achievement, both our boys and girls football teams qualified for the County Finals, held at Crewe Alexandra's training facility. The boys, having been crowned Chester champions in November's district competition, reached the county semi-finals, narrowly losing 1-0 to a last minute goal (having won two and drawn one of their group matches, followed by a quarter final victory over Saughall, also from Chester).
The girls team, as Chester district runners-up, performed with tremendous team spirit against some very strong opponents, and held their own in two narrow defeats and a draw.
We are incredibly proud of both squads, and thank parent Mr Pullman for his efforts in readying the players for the finals.
Chester District Champions
District Athletics (June 2023)
A second place finish, missing out on the title by one point! A wonderful effort by all our athletes.
The squad with the runners-up trophy
We were delighted to see over 70 children take part in the local Chester Mini Marathon on 3 Oct 2022, winning the MBNA participation trophy:
Our Y6 Touch Rugby squad won every game in the October 2022 area tournament at Chester Rugby Club.
Children who have a passion for Touch Rugby and a desire to compete were selected to take part in this competition. This competition promoted the enjoyment of the sport itself, whilst also encouraging skill development and a high quality of game play.
Our Girls Football Team have performed extremely well in recent years, and in 2022 were county runners-up! We have some very talented footballers at Huntington, who enjoy the thrill of an exciting match. This sport brings people together for a common purpose - having fun!
We also have a strong Netball Team, who will compete in the Chester league this year.
Our netball clubs (Y5 and Y6) have inclusive atmospheres and we encourage teamwork and cooperation.
