A sporty primary school in Maidenhead celebrated a year of achievements on Monday.
Oldfield Primary School in Bray Road has been named as years three and four county champions in football and tennis.
The school was also a county finalist for cricket and orienteering, but the finals were called off to due bad weather. It was also Royal Borough champion in tennis, orienteering, rugby, rounders and cricket, with year three and four pupils named as football borough champions.
Richard Jarrett, headteacher, said: “We’re all really proud, it’s a great achievement for everyone.”
Fran Hodge, a teacher at the school, said: “A large number of children have been very successful this year in the wide variety of sports, and we are very proud of them all. These achievements have been reflected in the Gold Mark School Games Accreditation for the third time in a row.”
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
