Sport at Shadwell
We have a number of sports teams that represent the schools including boys’ and girls’ football teams throughout Years 3-6, second teams for football teams so all children have the opportunity to participate, tag rugby teams, netball teams, dodgeball teams and cricket teams as well as an athletics team. We regularly compete in tournaments/fixtures almost every day with other schools the north of Leeds but also city-wide.
As well as establishing participation competitions within our Federation where all KS2 children take part; last year we had 215 out of 222 KS2 pupils participate in our tag rugby ‘World Series’ event, we also aim high on a competitive level. Highlights over the past few years include:
• 27th in the nation at girls football; including Leeds Champions & West Yorkshire Champions
• Leeds Y5/6 Boys Football Champions, out of 90 schools
• Leeds Y4 Football Champions
• Leeds Tag Rugby Champions & 2nd in West Yorkshire, out of 750 schools
• 5-time girls Leeds Tag Rugby Champions, undefeated in those five years
• Leeds Hockey Champions & 2nd in West Yorkshire Finals
• Leeds Girls Cricket Champions
• Leeds Dodgeball Champions
• Local League Netball winners
In addition to taking competitive teams, we also regularly invite 40-60 children to large tournaments from both our schools. With fixtures almost every day there's always something for children to participate in!
