Inter-school Competitions

School Games Silver Award 2021- 2022

In the 1st full year of sports activities in school, Compton participated in numerous inter-school competitions as well as the new-look Sports Day at The Downs Secondary School. We were working towards achieving the Bronze School Games Award, and ended up achieving Silver Award. This can not have been possible without the support of the staff who gave their time to attend fixtures during and after school as well as parents who assist with lifts. 

Round up of events held in 2021-2022


The LKS2 Mixed Team progressed as Group Runners Up on a cold Monday night of floodlit football at Park House, and were unlucky to lose by slim margins in the Finals. They also finshed 2nd (Group stages) in the Berkshire Schools FA Competiton, which led to playing in the Qtr Finals again St Nics but lost by only 1 goal.

The LKS2 Girls team proudly represented the school although this time were unable to progress through to the Finals. For many of the players who took part, it was their first but certainly not their last experience.

Years 5 and 6 Mixed team had a tougher set of games despite their experience in playing football and were unfortunate not to also make the Finals


10 Girls from Year 5 and 6, with limited experience, travelled to Falkland CC and played against a group of schools from across West Berkshire. With some excellent skills, they progressed through to the semi-finals and one player hit 3 sixes in a row!!. It was not to be on the day and they lost by a handful of runs but stayed positive until the end and cheered on a small village school who defied the odds to beat a very competitive bigger town school.


A staggering 48 KS2 children (just under half of the entire 4 year groups) took part in the West Berkshire and North Hampshire Primary Schools Cross Country Championships held at the Newbury Showground. It was an emotional day for the organiser who after 2 years of absence were able to stage it again and almost beat their own National Record of partitipants for one event. 

The Year 3/4 Girls A Team finished in 28th.  The B Team finished in 19th. 

The Year 3/4 Boys A Team finished in 35th. The B team finished in 24th.

The Year 5/6 Girls A Team finished in 28th.  The B Team finished in 14th.

The Year 5/6 Girls A Team finished in 21st. The B Team finished in 21st.

Overall the A Team finished 27th out of 44 scoring schools. The B Team finished 13th out of 38 schools

A and B teams worked out on first 6 finished for A Team in each category and then the next set of runners in B with minimum 3 to score.


3 children from KS2 took part in a series of round robin games against other schools in West Berkshire @Kennet School. The standard was very high and our 3 managed to pull off a lot of excellent shots. Next year we aim to increase this to one team from LKS2 and one from UKS2 as well as KS1. 


This was a hugely popular competitionh held on a Saturday with most West Berkshire Schools participating. 4 girls and 4 boys from both LKS2 and UKS2 made up the teams. As the name suggests, Quadkids focuses on 4 events: Standing Long Jump, Vortex (for throwing) and both a short and middle distance run (50m/75m and 600m/800).

Given that many of our children had not had the chance to try out some of these events due to Covid - the overall results and some individual ones were very positive. 

Our top LKS2 Boy ranked 13th (14th overall) whilst our top LKS2 Girl ranked 42nd (113rd overall) The team finished 12th out of 20 teams.

Our top UKS2 Boy ranked 33rd (36th overall) whilst out top UKS2 Girl ranked 35th (90th overall) The team finished 11th out of 21 teams


For the 1st time in Compton's history, Sports Day was held at our federated secondary school The Downs. Almost all the children will attend this school when they leave Compton and we felt it would be a huge benefit not only to experience a new site but use their facilities and have the best possible chance to showcase their amazing talents. Races were held in the morning and field events in the afternoon. Parents and teachers including staff from The Downs provided superb support and there was a lot of positive feedback moving forward into next years event.

The distances ran and field events held were similar to those that children will encounter in inter - school competitions so this gave a chance to try out these before giving it a go in future years.

There are too many to mention but notably there were many smiles, lots of encouraging results and more importantly happy faces at the end of the day.
