Sports Hall Athletics
On Monday 26th February, we participated in a Sports Hall Athletics competition at Icknield School. Initially, we tied first place on points meaning the organisers had to look at how many races we had won compared to the other school. Unfortunately, we hadn't quite won as many races meaning we came away with a very respectable second place out of the five schools that took part.
Well done team Watlington! Fantastic effort.
On Monday 29th January, our netball club took part in an inter-schools tournament hosted by Icknield. We came a very respectable second out of the four schools that took part. I am so proud of the team for showing true resilience. Well done Watlington!
Tag Rugby Tournament
On Monday 13th November, we attended a tag rugby tournament with three other local schools. Watlington showed true sportsmanship at this event and we WON the whole tournament! We are so proud of you all. Go team Watlington!
First sports tournament of the new academic year!
On Monday 9th October, Watlington hosted the first inter-schools tournament of the new academic year. We took part in a football tournament with three other local schools: Chalgrove, RAF Benson and Lewknor. Watlington came 2nd place overall. Well done to everyone who played, what a great start!
Unfortunately, the mandatory goal picture was forgotten... but enjoy a few snaps of us in action below!

Cross Country Event 2023
On Friday 9th June, Watlington held a Cross Country race for children in Reception - Year 6. We were very lucky to be helped by the lovely sport leaders from Icknield School, who led a warm-up and led the way around the route. All of the children ran brilliantly. Well done everyone, what a fantastic morning we had!
A special congratulations to the children who won a medal. There was a medal given to the fastest boy, fastest girl and the best sportsman each year group.
Well done team Watlington for a great game against Tetsworth on Tuesday 28th March. We drew 1-1 and I think it’s fair to say that the two teams were very evenly matched! You showed true team spirit as always. 😊
Well done team Watlington on a fantastic win against Chalgrove! This was our first netball match of the academic year. The children showed brilliant teamwork and sportsmanship.
Well done to all children who took part in the Sports Hall Athletics Final at Wheatley Park School on Tuesday 7th March we may not have won this time, but you all tried your hardest and kept going even though we were up against some very speedy schools! Good job team!
Friendly football match against Tetsworth
Well done Watlington for a fantastic game against Tetsworth School on Monday 20th February. You played brilliantly! Unfortunately, it wasn't our day and Tetsworth won 5 - 2. As always, the children represented Watlington perfectly. Well done team
Friendly football match against Chalgrove
Well done Watlington for a fantastic football game against Chalgrove. The final score was 2-1 to Chalgrove - Watlington put up a good fight and it was a very close game. The teacher from Chalgrove commented on how well behaved our children were and the brilliant sportsmanship skills that they showed. Well done team, I am so proud of you all.
Sports Hall Athletics Tournament at Icknield
On Wednesday 25th January, some of our year 5/6 children went to Icknield to take part in a Sports Hall Athletics tournament. Four local schools took part and I am so pleased to say that we won the entire event! The children were incredibly skilled and showed some brilliant sportsmanship. Please take a look at our photos below - I like to think they are so blurry because the children were moving too quickly for me to take a good photo of them! We definitely have some future Olympians here...!
Well done Eagles, you were all amazing
Year 5/6 Football Tournament
On Monday 14th November, Watlington hosted a friendly football tournament with Ewelme and Lewknor. The team (who had never played a match as a team before!) won their first match 6 - 0! The second match was much harder and they unfortunately lost 2 - 0 to a very strong team. I was so proud of all the children who participated; they showed great teamwork skills and represented our school brilliantly. A massive thank you to Mr Challis for refereeing the matches! Hopefully, this will be the first of more tournaments and sports matches against other schools.
Well done team!
