Sports at St Richard's

Sadly, the Coronavirus shut-down meant the 2019-20 school football season was cut short, with events such as the boys' borough tournament at NPL and the Year 5s-only tournaments (from which we are the girls' Chalice holders holders from last year) being cancelled. Frustrating for all concerned as I have no doubt we would have been strong challengers for silverware again. 

However, before lock-down it had already been a hugely successful season for both our boys and girls, and I am very pleased to announce the winners of the 2019-20 St Richard's Football awards. In particular our captains and Footballers Of The Year, Che Bell and Saskia Hollins.  


Thank you to all the children who have represented St Richard's this year at football, swimming and cross country in various age groups, as well as the individuals who have achieved honours out of school at ballet and gymnastics. You have all shown fantastic enthusiasm, commitment, skill, teamwork and sports(wo)manship home and away and I have been very proud to work with you. I know Mr Jordan and Mr Callum feel the same. 
A special mention of course to the Year 6 children who are leaving us: stay fit and active, and do try out for the many school teams at secondary school - some of you definitely have what it takes! 
Thank you  again, 

-Mr Neill, P.E. Coordinator.

For all St Richard's sports teams, selection is based primarily on ability, with each child’s commitment, consistency and behavioural attitude then taken into account. We impress upon the children the responsibility that comes with representing the school within the wider community. These factors are assessed on an on-going basis through the year, during PE lessons, clubs and training sessions.


For certain events, such as the Borough Sports competition in the summer, the PE lessons beforehand will be used as trial events to help select the best team.


If two children are at a similar level, a Year 6 child would generally be chosen ahead of a younger child as they have fewer opportunities remaining before leaving the school.


We are delighted with the growing enthusiasm for sport within the school, as reflected by the increased demand for places in the various football, tag rugby, running, basketball and gymnastics clubs.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions,


Andrew Neill (PE Co-ordinator)
