Competitive Sports

Teachers in school train pupils for a wide range of sporting events; some are for individuals, others are for pairs/small groups and many of our pupils compete as members of teams. The sports include netball, hockey, table tennis, cross-country, athletics, gymnastics, tennis, cricket and rounders. In addition, Newsome Junior School is a member of the junior section of Huddersfield Schools Football Association, has many pupils who compete in the Neiley cross-country races and enters teams into the Huddersfield Schools Swimming Gala.
