Pirton Hill Primary school’s year 5/6 indoor athletic team finished third in the national Sportshall Primary Competition. Phil Martin, PE lead teacher, said: “I’m delighted that the Year 5/6 Indoor athletics team have finished the year as the third best team in the county.”
The team have previously won the Luton Schools competition, the Bedfordshire County final and came second as the young team of the year at the Luton School awards.
In June the pupils achieved outstanding results in the six competitions they competed in at the Summer Games in Bedford, launched by Olympic gold medal winners Etienne Scott and Timothy Baille.
Year 3/4 Quad kids and Year 5/6 Quad Kids being named county champions and receiving gold medals, Year 5/6 dodgeball team and Year 5/6 tri-golf team obtained bronze medals and Year 4/5 Netball team and Year 6 netballers finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the county.
Mr Martin added: “Pirton Hill had more teams who had qualified for the Summer Games than any other school in Luton and once again the children were fantastic ambassadors for the school and demonstrating just how amazing our Luton pupils are.”
