Thank you to everyone who supported sports day. Special thanks go to all the volunteers who helped make it such a wonderful day - especially our former pupils from Alban Academy and our parent volunteers!
On May 3rd our year 3 and 4 Kwik Cricket teams took part in the qualifying tournament for the East Bedfordshire Competition. Both teams were outstanding in their performances as they both earned places in the final having won their group matches. The A team scored the highest points of the competition and the B team came equal second.
In the finals on Wednesday 17th May, the weather was atrocious with torrential rain throughout the morning. This meant that wet weather rules were applied, which basically just involved bowling and no batting. Nevertheless, both teams performed brilliantly and were placed equal 3rd in the competition. Congratulations to all of our players for their high level of skill, determination and sportsmanship.
Coming up this term is Quad Kids Athletics and tennis.
In February, we took a team of 10 (boys and girls) from Key Stage 1 to a multi-skills tournament at Mark Rutherford School. The children had a fabulous time putting to test their football and athletic skills and we are proud to announce that in the competition our team came first overall. What a fantastic achievement for the children in their first opportunity to represent the school!
East Beds Finals.
It was a very closely fought finals for our A team. After all of the matches, the team were equal first with St Andrews Biggleswade, unfortunately we lost on the number of tries scored. The team played phenomenally and were unlucky not to go through to the County finals. Thank you to everybody for their hard work and especially to Miss Larham and Mr Parker for giving up their free time to coach the team.
Congratulations to our A and B teams who took part in the Alban Cluster Tournament in January. Both teams played extremely well, with the A team winning the competition overall. The A team are through to the East Bedfordshire finals in February.

East Beds Runners Up!
In the East Bedfordshire football finals our A team were undefeated. Unfortunately the final placings were decided on goal difference and so we narrowly lost out to Biggleswade Academy. Well done to the team for your brilliant achievement and thanks to Miss Boast, Mrs Biswell and Mr Biswell for your excellent team management!
Despite the appalling weather conditions, our A team came away as winners of the Alban Academy football tournament. Our B team came 6th which is also a very respectable result!
