On Wednesday 26th April 2017 over 25 schools participated in the Year 3/4 Quicksticks Hockey Competition at Moulton College, a qualifying competition for the Level 3 Summer School Games. the standard of competition was of a good quality, which ensured highly competitive and skilful games to be played throughout the event.
Young Leaders from Northampton School for Girls undertook some leadership training in advance of the competition to prepare them to competently and confidently umpire the games on behalf of the Partnership. They conducted themselves very well on the evening of the competition, on occasions having to make some very quick and difficult decisions - Thanks to NSG for their support at this competition.

Over several evenings 22 teams have competed in the Yr 4/5 Take 6 Mini Basketball Level 2 School Games competitions at Abbeyfield School, The Duston School and Weston Favell Academy. During the preparation for the competitions Young Leaders from each of these secondary schools received training from Martin Spencer, lead officer for Mini Basketball England.
The quality of the competitions yet again increased from previous years, and the preparation and determination from the players is testament to this.
Delapare Primary, Abington Vale Primary, Millway Primary, Earl Spencer Primary, The Good Shepherd Primary and Thorplands Primary were cluster winners and went on to play a final round of games to determine the overall winner and runners up to represent the Partnership at the Level 3 Summer School Games. All the teams played incredibly well and there were some hard fought matches played.
Thanks to all the Young Leaders from Abbeyfield School and The Duston School - you did a great job and should be really proud of your efforts.

On Wednesday 28th February 2017 the KS2 Goalball Level 2 Competition took place at Duston Sports Centre. The nature of the competition means that there is very little atmosphere during the games as all competitors have to remain silent to allow those playing their games to be able to hear the jiggle ball effectively. All the competitors complied without fail to our request for silence during the games - this was a remarkable achievement by all.
Again it was obvious that any of the schools had adequately prepared their pupils for the competition having given them coaching in skills development and game play. This contributed to the quality and flow of the competition.

Monday 27th March 2017 saw the partnership's first Water Polo festival take place at Northampton School for Boys; the event was hosted and run by Northampton School for Boys and supported by Northampton Water Polo club.
The schools that participated in the Level 2 School Games Swimming Gala in December 2016 were invited to select a squad of 8 players to attend the festival.
For many of the 10 teams that participated, this was their first experience of Water Polo. The players were able to learn basic skills during the warm up and 'training session' ahead of participating in non-competitive matches.
The event was very successful, with many positive comments from players and staff alike who thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
All players received certification for their attendance and a flyer inviting them to a session at the Water Polo club.
