Banbury Area Cross Country 2018

572 children from the Wykham Park Academy and BGN clusters took part in their first NOSSP event of the 2018/2019 academic year.  A total of 12 schools took part in this School Games Level 2 Cross Country Competition with most of them organising their own Level 1 Competitions beforehand to select children to take part.

All the children did brilliantly, showing plenty of determination and self-belief on their way round. The 1/2 girls competition was won by Hillview with Bishop Loveday coming second; the 1/2 boys competition was won by Hillview with St. Leonard’s coming second; the 3/4 girls competition was won by Hanwell Fields with Bishop Loveday coming second; the 3/4 boys competition was won by Hardwick with Hanwell Fields coming second; the 5/6 girls competition was won by Bishop Loveday with St. Leonard’s coming second and the 5/6 boys competition was won by Hanwell Fields with Bishop Loveday coming second.  Huge congratulations to all these teams who have qualified for the partnership finals in December.  Congratulations as well to the top 20 runners in each competition who have also qualified (if not already in a winning team).  All 12 schools had children qualify – a great result!

Overall, Bishop Loveday came in first place, Hillview in second place and Hanwell Fields in third. 

The event was run at Wykham Park Academy and supported by 40 Year 7 and 6 Year 13 Young Leaders.  They did a great job of supporting the runners, helping on the finish, marshalling and sorting the results. 

“Thoroughly enjoyed by all!  Thankyou!”

“A well organised, smoothly run event.  The Young Leaders were really helpful.”

“Thank you for an amazing morning.”
