In recent years, Buckland has gone from strength to strength when it comes to sport. We compete in the football, hockey, tag rugby, netball, rounders and cricket leagues and participate in many tournaments and competitions throughout the year.
We pride ourselves on the children having a wide range of extra-curricular activities for the children to attend. These range from football and netball to skiing and sailing. Whether you’re a young Jessica Ennis Hill or the next Joe Hart, you are bound to find an activity to suit you.
Every child is proud to represent the school and wear the school colours with honour. Buckland has become a highly competitive school, winning leagues, competitions and tournaments and reaching several county finals; never forgetting to have fun along the way. Every child has an opportunity to represent the school in a variety of sports and within the tiered Spelthorne Leagues and competitions. As a school we try to create as many opportunities so that everyone gets the chance to wear their school colours.
Competitions and matches are consistently reported on by our Year 6 sports journalists. Their job is to attend fixtures and competitions to take notes and photograph the team. The journalists then write a detailed match report which is shared within school and uploaded to the school website.
Buckland has enjoyed a wide range of success within a variety of sport recently and with the sporting ethos now embedded throughout the school, it is only a matter of time before Buckland are celebrating their next triumph!
