The year 4 football squad were relatively inexperienced with football at a competitive level but really enjoyed this experience and worked well as team to ensure that every member felt involved and valued in the team.

A team of year 5 and 6 pupils, including some of our championship squad, enjoyed and evening of honing their skills and competing against other schools.

But that only sidelined him briefly as the team rallied around him and showed that the children from Westminster are determined to succeed.

Hoops4Health Tournament - February 2017 -

We worked closely with the players and coaches from Cheshire Phoenix to select a team of ten players to represent our school at a basketball tournament that would involve schools from all over the Cheshire West and Cheshire Area. On the day our team performed superbly and got themselves into the final which took place at half time of a full professional match! With a crowd of 1,000 fans cheering on both schools we felt the pressure but certainly rose to the occasion. It was a brilliant team performance won on a penalty shootout. Particular well done to Ollie for overall performance and securing the clutch win in the penalty shootout and the whole team Charlie, George Tash, Josh, Kirean, Tru, Katie, and Tom. Our first trophy! Hopefully, the first of many to come!
