Over the course of the academic year Old Basford School participates in five athletics based competitions. In the past six years we have always been MEDALLISTS for the City in all those events, reaching the regional finals to PROUDLY represent The City Of Nottingham on numerous occasions.
We are extremely PROUD that so many of our children want to become athletes and represent our fantastic school.
Our Year 5/6 Athletics team is coached by Mrs Shaw and Miss Fleet
Our Year 3/4 Athletics team is coached by Mr Hill and Mr Burrows
Our Year 4/5 Quad Athletics team is coached by Mrs Shaw and Miss Fleet

Staff will be letting children know which lunchtimes there will be opportunities to participate in athletics and to trail out for the team. Keep an eye on Miss Fleet's weekly lunchtime club notice board in the school hall.

I was delighted that so many of our parents came to watch and support the children. It was also so lovely to have teachers from other schools come over and comment not only about the children's ability but their attitude, behaviour and sportsmanship!
A very PROUD Mrs Shaw!
