On Tuesday 24th January 2017, the Partnership hosted the first every Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics Competition, and what an event it was. Partnership Enhanced Schools were invited to attend and 10 of the 15 school participated. As with the Year 5/6 competitions prior to this, the quality of the performances was outstanding - we really do have some incredible talent in our Northampton Schools.
Many of those participating will be eligible to participate in next years Year 5/6 Level 3 qualifying event - so exciting times ahead.
Congratulations to all teams who competed in this new event - definitely something I think we should keep in the calendar for future years!
Instead of awarding points schools were awarded Shining Stars (as the event was a Festival) and so the Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics Shining Stars are...
1st: Lings Primary (127 Shining Stars)
2nd: All Saints Primary (125 Shining Stars)
3rd: Boothville Primary (105 Shining Stars)

On Tuesday 6th December the Partnership hosted its first ever primary Inclusive Sitting Volleyball Competition at Lings Forum Leisure Centre. Northamptonshire's Inclusive School Games Competition programme provides an opportunity for SEND (special educational needs or disabilities) pupils to compete alongside mainstream peers in the same team and in the same competition. In Inclusive competitions, a minimum of 50% of the team must be comprised of pupils with SEND. At this competition we far exceeded this with many school choosing to use this competition as an opportunity to engage pupils who may not otherwise get the chase to present their school, as other competitions are not suitable for them.
This Level 2 competition was a qualifying event for the Level 3 Winter School Games which take place in February 2017. On the day of the competition each partnership was allowed to progress just one team, but due to the demand and number of schools entering this competition across the county, the decision has been taken to increase this to 2 teams per partnership.
Thanks to Daniel Thompson from Volleyball England who came and helped deliver the competition.

On Thursday 1st December 2016 Northampton School for Boys hosted the annual Partnership Level 2 Year 5/6 Swimming Gala. The event was again supported and delivered by Northampton Swimming Club, whose volunteers provide expert officiating to imitate a high quality swimming gala experience for all those who participated.
With 16 teams competing at one competition it was by far our biggest ever swimming gala, and the quality of the gala was also of the highest level for many years.
The winners and runners up of this event will now proceed to a standalone Level 3 School Games Swimming Gala in June 2017 – so plenty of time to practice!

On Wednesday 9th November 2016, 23 teams from across the partnership took part in the Year 5/6 Key Steps Gymnastics Competition at Kingsthorpe College and The Duston School. Those participating in the competition have a series of routines to practice and remember off by heart before performing them in front of a number of judges. The Judges, young leaders from both Kingsthorpe College and The Duston School, undertook a training workshop in advance of the competition, to adequately prepare them to be able to confidently and competently judge the routines to a high standard.
Throughout the year the partnership run three levels of competition and each and every one of them is highly contended – the effort and determination that is invested in the gymnastics to prepare them for these competitions is second to none, which subsequently always results in an exceptionally high quality competition.
As a Level 3 qualifying event the partnership is able to put forward two schools to represent it at the standalone Level 3 School Games event in May 2017.
Thanks to Kingsthorpe College and The Duston School for preparing their leaders and allowing the partnership to utilise their facilities and equipment.
