JCPP- Primary School’s Make a Splash! 2019

The final events to take place before the Easter half-term were the JESS Cluster Aqua Festivals on the 27th and 28th March. Pupils of all swimming abilities from Clapgate, Sharp Lane, Low Road, Windmill and Hunslet St. Mary’s took part in a variety of fun and exciting races. As well as the conventional races such as freestyle and breaststroke the Aqua Festivals included races such as the egg and spoon, beach ball and body board events. After the races had concluded the pupils enjoyed half an hour of play time in the water whilst the CJCA Sports Leaders took a deserved lunch break. To conclude, there were water polo tournaments to bring each festival to a close which were again, competed with excellent sportsmanship and effort. On day one it was Windmill who came out on top against their Music Federation rivals Low Road with Sharp Lane narrowly edging out their neighbours Clapgate on day two.

Thank You to all the class teachers and their pupils who attended on the day for their hard work and endeavour to ensure our first JESS Cluster Aqua Festivals were a success!

JCPP- Mini Tennis Competition 2019


VENUE: John Charles -Tennis Centre

YR Group: Yr3/4, Yr 5


Hunslet St Mary's, Clapgate, Ingram Road., Low Road, Windmill and Beeston. Primary

Game, Set and Match!

The JESS Cluster Primary Sports Programme started 2019 in style with the mini-tennis tournaments taking place at the John Charles Tennis Centre for the first time. On night one it was Hunslet St. Mary’s winning their third straight competition as Clapgate narrowly pipped Ingram Road to take the Silver. Night two was even closer with countback on head to head having to separate Low Road and Beeston, with Low Road emerging victorious. Once again the Sports Leaders of CJCA were essential in each event, umpiring every match and ensuring each event ran efficiently and professionally. As always it is important to thank all the staff and children who attended from our JESS Cluster Primaries as well as John Charles Tennis Centre, in particular Rob Ratcliffe, for organising two excellent events!

MSSA- Basketball Competition 2019

DATES: 18th Jan 2019


SPORTS LEADERS: Morley Academy

VENUE: Morley Academy

SCHOOLS ENTERED: St Francis, East Ardsley, Birchfield, Asquith, Hill Top, Seven Hills, Westerton & Gildersome Primary

A huge thank you to all the schools who attended the Basketball event last week at TMA. It was amazing to see 80 students all participating. They were all fantastic & played with excellent sportsmanship and enthusiasm.

The schools were separated in to two pools & the results of the pool games are below.

Pool 1 


St Francis - 3 points

East Ardsley - 6 points

Birchfield - 9 points

Asquith - 6 points

Pool 2


Hill Top - 8 points

Seven Hills - 5 points

Westerton - 8 points

Gildersome - 3 points 

Therefore with Westerton & Hill Top on the same points the number of baskets scored were calculated which meant Hill Top went through to the finals against Birchfield. The final game was close with Hill Top being crowned champions scoring 4 - 1. A huge well done.

Pool 1 


St Francis - 3 points

East Ardsley - 7 points

Birchfield - 9 points

Asquith - 5 points

Pool 2


Hill Top - 7 points

Seven Hills - 7 points

Westerton - 7 points

Gildersome - 3 points

Pool 2 showed that 3 schools all finished on the same number of points so the number of baskets overall each school scored was how they could be separated. This meant that Westerton went through to the finals against Birchfield. The game was another fantastic final with Birchfield being crowned champions with a 4 v 2 win.

Thank you again for attending - 8 teams was fantastic!!

MSSA - U11 Girls Football Competition 2018

DATE: 6th Nov 2018

VENUE: Woodkirk Academy

SCHOOLS ENTERED: Asquith, Birchfield, Blackgates, Churwell, Drighlington, East Ardsley, Fountain, Morley Newland, Seven Hills, St Francis, Morley Victoria, Westerton Primary

Report from East Ardsley - PE SL

On Tuesday, 6th November, it was the girls turn to represent the school at football, in the annual U11s Girls’ Football Tournament which was held at Woodkirk Academy. Eight schools took part in games 7 minutes long. 

The first game against Gildersome was completely dominated by our girls and they were unlucky to only finish with a 1-0 win ( a fabulous goal from East Ardsley Player- I), it could easily have been 5 or 6. 

During the course of the next six games, the girls played brilliantly with superb teamwork and determination, they also became more confident as the games went on.  

Not all the games went in our favour and we ended the tournament having won two, drew two and lost three. A special mention to Paige for her absolutely superb left footed goal, after taking on the keeper one-on-one. 

Well done to all the girls, you all had lots of fun and were great competitors for the other schools. Thank you to East Ardsley Players L and F for playing in a tournament with girls a lot older than themselves, you did yourselves proud.
