Cross Country - Saturday 4th February 2023
On Saturday 4th February, Priors Field took part in the final cross country of the series at Priory Park. We went into the race 3rd in the overall standings knowing that some good results should help us hold or even improve our position. Congratulations to Olly W (1st) and Harriet R (3rd) on their podium finishes and to all the pupils who also finished in the top 10 and qualified for the country race (Rhys, Lucile, Zach, Max and Elizabeth). Thank you to everyone who took part and gave up part of their weekend. It's really appreciated and you've all done your school proud! We're currently waiting for the overall school results and will reveal them once they're available.

On Wednesday, a group of 14 children – the netball team – played in a friendly match against St Nicholas C of E Primary School. Thank you to Isa H, Freya, Abby T, Isla M, Martha, Emmett, Amelia V, Amelia T, Iga, Carys, Chelsey, Harriet, Evelyn and Iolee. The team did amazingly well and won 11 – 5! Well done everyone!
Football, Friday 25th November
Last Friday, Year 5 & 6 boys played a league match against St. Augustine’s. We all felt so lucky to be picked and had a lot of fun. The team was extraordinary, and we won 2-0 with goals from Zach and Sam. Thank you to Mr Ball for offering to referee! We're now hoping the school will buy some new kits with the Priors Field badge on, so we look nice and smart playing matches! Reported by Sam and George
On Saturday 5th November, Priors Field hosted the first Y5&6 cross country of the year. The Priors Field cross country is an all-time favourite, with part of the course running through the brook at the top of our field. Over 300 pupils took part in the event, 25 of which were Priors Field students!
The Priors Field cross country is the first of three that will take place this year, with all of the scores added together to create individual and team/school results. After such a strong start, we hope to continue this going forward into the next races.
A big thank you to all of the pupils and staff who gave up their Saturday to take part.
On Wednesday 19th October, Priors Field hosted the Boys Flowers Cup Football Tournament. The tournament hasn't run at full capacity for a number of years due to COVID, but we were extremely happy to welcome 6 other schools this year for an afternoon of fun and football!
Priors Field were put into a group of four and were able to win 2 games which qualified us for the semi-final. After a close 0-0 match against St Augustines, game finished with penalties which Priors Field won! Unfortunately, we lost to a strong St Johns team in the final who were unbeaten all tournament. After the final, the boys were lucky enough to get a picture with Tim Flowers (former Premier League winner with Blackburn Rovers). A massive well done to all the boys who took part in such an amazing afternoon- you made your school extremely proud.
Central Area Athletics Finals
Following their success at the Local Area Competition, 17 pupils from KS2 travelled to Edmondscote on Tuesday 14th June to represent Kenilworth in the Final Central Area Athletics competition. Everyone involved deserves a huge well done for the effort they put in and the continual support they gave to each other throughout the competition. Priors Field had a fun and successful afternoon with five 1st places, one 2nd place and three 3rd places out of the twelve events in total. Mr B
Year 6 Trip to the Rothesay Classic Tennis Tournament
On Monday, Year 6 visited the Edgbaston Priory Club to watch the Rothesay Classic Tennis Tournament. This involved a tennis clinic, meeting the current Wimbledon doubles champion (Elise Mertens) and also watching some great tennis! The children were exemplary throughout the trip and represented the school excellently. A fantastic day out!
Congratulations to Amelia T, Year 5, who won Gold in a recent karate competition.
Amelia travelled to London to compete in a Kumite/Team Kumite/Kickmaster competition. Amelia was in the aged 10/11 category and beat her opponent with a convincing 7 – 0 result.
Wow! What a superstar.
Year 3 had the opportunity to go to Edmondscote to practise their athletic skills with other Year 3 classes from the local area. We started with basketball and the children did a first attempt and then they had to try and beat their personal best score - great excitement. We moved on to practise cricket skills, speed skills and three jump distance trials. The children made me very proud with their team support and positive attitude - I heard one child say 'I can't do that yet, but I am going to try' 🙂 A great experience for Year 3.
Year 6 Cricket Match Vs. Crackley
On Wednesday 25th May, 13 Year 6 pupils travelled to Crackley Hall for a game of kwik cricket. We held our own against a very talented Crackley team and put in an incredible performance. Crackley just about won the match overall, but we were extremely proud of the teamwork and effort we put in. The Crackley teacher was very complementary of our fielding and was impressed at how we improved as a team throughout the match. A big thank you to Crackley Hall for hosting and for all their help.
Captain - Oscar S
Player of the Match - Elliott
Priors Field took part in the Kenilworth Schools Athletic event at Edmondscote Athletics ground in Leamington. As well as track races, events included, javelin, long jump and triple jump. The children performed brilliantly but most importantly I loved watching them cheer and support each other in their races and felt enormously proud of everyone.
Thank you to Mrs Mann and Mr Berrigan for their organisation.
On Wednesday eight children from Year 5 and 6 took part in a cross-country event at Crackley Hall. It was a freezing cold afternoon but despite this the children all ran magnificently. Congratulations to Zach who came 1st in the Year 5 boys’ race, running almost 1½ miles! Everyone tried their best and only just missed further medals. The girls also competed in the relay, coming 4th. Thanks to Mrs Lloyd for helping with extra coats, hats and gloves to keep the children warm!
On Friday 18th March, 5 pupils from Y5 & 6 represented the school in the Basketball County Final after winning our area competition. We went to Moreton Morrell College to play against other winning teams. We ended up finishing 4th out of 7 teams and had an amazing time! Reported by Charlie & JJ, Year 6
Sports Hall Athletics, Year 6
On Monday, the class took part in a Sports Hall Athletics competition at Ryton Connexion Arena. The whole class competed in at least two events including standing long-jump, javelin and a variety of running races included a Paarlauf (a continuous relay!) We were thrilled with the way the class participated, being competitive, supportive and enjoying the challenge of competing against other schools. We finished 5th out of 14 schools. Well done Year 6.
On Monday 7th March, a team of girls and a team of boys from Years 5 and 6 took part in a basketball competition. The boys won and have been invited to play in the county finals next Friday. The girls also did very well and finished in 3rd place. We all had a brilliant time and are very proud of what we achieved. Reported by Emilie and Freddie, Year 6
Year 3 and 4 Girls Football
On Wednesday, 10 girls from Year 3 and 4 went to Kingsley Playing Fields to take part in a Girls’ Football Event. We played a few games to warm up which involved characters from The Incredibles 2 Film! After that, we split into teams and played four matches against some different schools. We all thought it was fantastic. We all feel extremely lucky to have been invited and had loads of fun! Reported by Elizabeth & Jess B, Year 3
On Friday 11th February, a team of Year 6 girls played a match against a three-form entry school called Coton End. It was our first real game, and it was really tough. All of the team persisted throughout and tried their hardest. Coton End played really well and both teams showed great teamwork and spirit throughout. It was a brilliant game and all of the girls involved played wonderfully, but the final score was 5-1 to Coton End.
Thank you to all the Year 6 boys who also came to support us.

On Monday 14th February, four KS2 pupils took part in an Archery Competition at Newbold Comyn. First, we did some colouring to warm up our hands. Then we started doing the Archery which was the best bit! We took it in turns to practice firing the arrows and then took part in a competition at the end. We all really enjoyed ourselves and would love to do it again. Reported by Jamie & Evelyn Year 5
A Football Star
We are proud to celebrate the success of Ben in Year 4 who has been invited to an 8-week trial with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club to enter their academy as a goal keeper. Ben’s football journey started with Go4Goals after school training at Priors Field when he was in Reception. Jason who runs Go4Goals spotted him and invited him to his Elite training; it was in this team he got spotted.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Ben and we all wish him every success.
