There should be no element of slavery in learning. Enforced exercise does no harm to the body, but enforced learning will not stay in the mind.

The children swam really well in their events, coming second in the freestyle relay and third in the medley relay qualifying for a place at the National Finals on Saturday 17th June at Ponds Forge Sheffield. Personal best times were gained and a good time was had by all. Congratulations and well done to all. Very many thanks to Mrs Whittamore for training the pupils and accompanying them on Friday evening.

Newark Hockey Club have awarded their ‘Most Improved Player U10 Boys 2016-17’ to Ethan P – Well Done!


Our U11 competed in the final of the Chairman’s Cup at the Forest Academy.  It was a very close game with both teams having only a few half chances each. Sadly Fernwood scored just after half time and despite a huge effort to score an equaliser we could not create an opening to retain the trophy we won last year.  The final result finished 1-0 to Fernwood .

Thanks to Mr Cordy for coming along and supporting the team.


Students of the Week
Year 5 for their excellent behaviour and fantastic team work during Tudor Day.
