This year we rounded Sports Fortnight off with Race For Life.  You should all be so proud of yourselves for running for so long and raising such an incredible amount for charity!

Year 5 and 6 Rounders Tournament

Violet and Indigo competed in mixed-year-group rounders teams in the annual rounders competition. There was some fantastic fielding and batting from players on all five teams!
The competition was run on a round-robin format so that each team had the chance to play each other. The team that didn’t have a match in each round took the chance to improve their fielding skills using the Crazy Catch equipment.

New Age Kurling

Reception and KS1

Red class had a go at Kurling…and they were BRILLIANT!

The kurling stone ( which we think looks like an alien space ship or a fancy handbag!) has ball-bearings on the bottom so we didn’t need any ice!

We learnt about aiming, and also whether we needed to push the kurling stone harder or more gently than our previous goes.


Yellow and Orange Class were great too! There were some fantastic shots and lots of children showed that they could be really accurate with the kurling stone.

Yellow Class were especially good at picking out and explaining how other people on their team had shown good skills.

Reception's Multisport Competition

- run by the Sports Leaders

Well done to the amazing little athletes in Red Class who took part in a multi sports activity morning run by the Year 5 Sports Leaders. There’s already a great deal of sporting talent shining through in the youngest members of our school!

The Sports Leaders also deserve a HUGE well done for demonstrating all the skills needed to be great sports leaders!

Orienteering and Teamwork Games 2022

Year 5 took part in an orienteering and team building tournament against local schools.
Great communication, organisation and tactical thinking was needed, and our team went from strength to strength throughout the different events! 


Well done for your resilience everyone - it was so hot but you didn't give up!

Girls' Indoor Athletics 2022

Congratulations to the year 5 & 6 girls who put in a tremendous performance at this year's indoor athletics competition!

Our athletes showed so much determination to win and they pushed themselves incredibly hard to achieve the results that they obtained.  Their competitive spirit and support for each other was present throughout and they achieved a well-deserved second place. 

The track events (races) were particularly exciting as on two occasions we were coming in at 3rd place and on the final laps managed to take first place!

West Yorkshire School Games 2021

During the spring term, KS1 and KS2 took part in the West Yorkshire School Games.  Each class had a go at the fun and challenging activities set by the Yorkshire Sport Foundation.

Football 2019

Wakefield Indoor Football Centre was the venue again for this year's competition and both teams made the most of the fantastic facilities.

Super shots, tremendous tackles and dazzling dribbling contributed to both teams putting in excellent performances.   The effort put in by all players was incredible, and they showed fantastic team spirit.

The girls took the first game to warm up but had excellent performances in the following three games.  With a number of draws under their belts they finished in fifth position overall.

The boys just missed out on the play off for first and second place due to goal difference.  In the end they lost 2-1 in the battle for third and fourth position.

2nd Place Superstars!
2nd Place Superstars!

The host team performed brilliantly in this year's tag rugby competition and came second over all.  The nail-biting final for first place was a tight game but The Mount were beaten 3-1 by the overall winners, Flanshaw.

In each game, every player was fundamental in the defending by ensuring they 'tagged' their opponents to prevent them scoring too many tries.  In attack, the team showed awesome skill and agility as they side-stepped, dummy-passed and sprinted their way past the opposition.


Terrific Tag Team:  Sonny, Howa, Declan, Lauren, Frankie, Aramante, Harley and Callum.


Try Scorers: Sonny - 5,  Declan - 1, Lauren - 1, Harley - 1

Top Tackler: Frankie


To get as good as this takes a lot of practice.  Thanks to The Mount B team (Kamil, Xawery, Liam, Arya, Aryas, Clara, Amelia and Daisy), and the other children at after school club, who have helped the A team prepare for the tournament!

Congratulations to Earth Team (Green Team) the winners of the 2019 Sports Day!

Cricket 2019

With SATS a distant memory, what could be better than a day playing cricket in the sun at Thornes Cricket Club?  

The mighty Mount bowled brilliantly, fielded fantastically and batted beautifully.  Their skill and effort paid off and the team won two of their games.

Year 3 and 4 Dodgeball 2019

Well done to our lower KS2 dodgeball team.  You dodged daringly; aimed accurately; and showed that resilience and team work are skills you are full of!

Cross Country Championships - Wakefield Competition 

The fastest teams and individual 'wildcard' runners from the Cathedral Pyramid Tournament headed to Crigglestone ARLFC to race against the winners of the rest of the Wakefield Pyramid of schools.

Special congratulations goes to the year 6 girls' team who have made it to the West Yorkshire round of the competition!


Year 6 girls' team:  Jessica (1st place), Kadie (7th place), Emily and Ellie M 



Tag Rugby 2018

After a shaky start in the first game, The Mount's rugby team pulled together and performed brilliantly throughout the rest of the tournament.  There were some excellent tries from Kenzie, Ellie, Harry and Alex and the whole team demonstrated their defending skills by  making some fantastic tackles.   All the games were close (with only one or two tries difference in the end score) but despite only winning one game, the team never gave up.  Their resilience was admirable and they should be very  proud of their achievements!


Players of the tournament:  Ellie M and Alex



World Cup Football

Year 3 & 4 Rugby

Years 3 and 4 were invited to a rugby tournament at Wakefield Trinity.  They played brilliantly, had great fun and showed great sportsmanship in all their games.

Hockey - Level 3a District Qualifying Event

After winning the pyramid competition, the mighty Mount team went to Slazengers Hockey Club to play against the winners of all the other Wakefield pyramid competitions.  All the competitors played brilliantly, but against tough competition we came 5th place.

Hockey 2018

The Mount visited Wakefield Hockey Club at College Grove to play hockey on their fantastic water-based astroturf. (The pitch is so good that the Chinese women's hockey squad trained there for the London Olympics in 2012!)


The Mount put in incredible individual and team performances, and won all of their five games.  The team effort and individual skill was outstanding, so much so that The Mount scored 19 goals in total and only conceded 1! This means that The Mount won the tournament and brought the trophy home.

Sports Fortnight 2017

Wow! What a fantastic fortnight of sports we have had. We've learnt new skills and tried new sports; we've competed against our class mates, and other year groups; we've used teamwork to challenge our opponents, and created a whole school performance. Violet Class (Year 6) have learned how to be sports leaders, so they could run the KS1 competition. 


Yet again our Sports Fortnight (we have to have two weeks because we LOVE sport at The Mount) has been a great success!


Every class has tried a new sport, taken part in a competition, danced their socks off, and has been super active! We feel GREAT because of it!


Well done to all our athletes in school - you have demonstrated our three school values in everything you've done over the last two weeks.


A big thank you goes out to our Sports Leaders who have helped run or lead the competitions.  You've been brilliant!


Our Superstar Sports Leaders

Kick Boxing

All year groups in KS1 and KS2 had the opportunity to learn some basic kick boxing moves.

It was really impressive to see the core strength, flexibility and concentration skills of athletes across all age groups.

If you enjoyed kickboxing , and think it’s something you’d like to try more of, why not go for a FREE trial lesson at Nactics Family Martial Arts, in Wakefield.

Many children already take part in the martial arts after school club, also run by Nactics, and the skills they’ve learnt were evident. I wonder when you’ll become black belts!

Boys' Indoor Athletics 2022

Congratulations to the year 5&6 boys who took part in the indoor athletics tournament  - another nail-biting, exciting spectacle of school sport! 

Yet again, our school values of resilience and respect shone through as our athletes jumped, threw and raced against competitors from our local pyramid of schools. 

Each athlete performed brilliantly in their individual and team events and should all be very proud of their bronze medal position. 

Scores from the boys’ and girls’ events were combined to give the overall positions. Well done to all the athletes that took part for contributing to our very respectable third place. 

KS1 Benchball 2022

Congratulations to the amazing athletes in Yellow Class - the winners of the local schools’ benchball tournament!

Not only did these superstars win ALL of the 8 games that they played, they also showed respect for all their opponents, played fairly, worked brilliantly as a team, and maintained their energy and enthusiasm throughout all the matches!


Sportability 2021

This year’s sportability tournament was held virtually.  Competitors completed the seated volleyball balloon challenge to see how many vertical bounces they could do in a given time.

The team also challenged themselves, and their accuracy, when they took part in a mini New Age Kurling contest.

At The Mount, we love PE and sport so much that we don't just have one week for National Schools Sports Week; we have TWO! 


As ever, athletes across all year groups competed, tried new sports and had lots of fun!

Competing in the first round of the contest, the boys stormed into the lead as they took a number of first and second places.  They took the trophy home as well-deserved winners of the boys' round.

The girls felt the pressure of not wanting to let their teammates down and put their all into each event.  The girls contest was extremely close with only a a few points between the winners and third place, which is where The Mount girls finished.

Cathedral Academy Sports Leaders helped run each event and were fantastic at demonstrating techniques and encouraging our young athletes.

In the afternoon, years 5 & 6 took to the field. Their resilience, especially considering the heat, was amazing! The competitive side of our athletes really came out today but also their respect for each other and the Cathedral Sports Leaders.

The Year 5 Sports Leaders have had another great success - this time running activities for a Yellow and Orange.

Yet again the Sports Leaders were incredible! Their leadership skills are getting stronger by the day. They are fabulous role models!

A big thanks to Jodie from Dance Xplosion for her choreography, and teaching us all the routine

The children with the fastest times or longest throwing distances, which were recorded last week when the Cathedral Academy Sports Leaders were in, went up against each other in the much anticipated finals.

Sports Hall Athletics 2018

The competition began with the boys event.  They demonstrated a range of athletic abilities in both the field and running events.  

Team:  Harry, TJ, Sam, Alex, Kenzie, Ahmed, Selemon, Haris and Mason

All the boys did incredibly well and showed a true determination to win.  Highlights included two of the boys       ( Mason and Haris) jumping over 5 metres (!) in the triple jump, and the 6 lap parlauf race which we drew with St Michaels.

This part of the competition was incredibly close: The Mount boys came in second place, just after St Michael's...

But it wasn't all over, as the second part of the competition was still to come...

The girls competed in the same events against the 5 other schools the following day.  Like the boys, the girls showed grit and determination and performed brilliantly in their events.  Highlights for the girls included some very springy actions on the jumping events, and a clear win in the 6 lap parlauf (Jessica and Ellie ran like pros!)

Due to a residential trip, not all qualifying athletes from the district competition could attend this round.   But our Year 5 stars travelled to Temple Newsam to compete against the best runners in the county.  

Jessica put in an incredible performance and came 7th in her heat - she will now compete in the ENGLAND(!) finals in Loughborough.


Wakefield District Cross Country 2018

On a cold, snowy February afternoon, ten brave athletes travelled to Outwood Grange Academy for the Wakefield District Cross Country Competition.  All the competitors showed brilliant resilience as they were running not only a long distance race, but were battling against the elements too!

Each athlete demonstrated stamina and skill as they powered around the slippery course.  Some of the races had 50 runners, and The Mount did a fantastic job at keeping up with, and in some cases, leading the pack.



Year 4: Lauren - 19th      Lia - 20th

Year 5:  Jessica - 1st (!)  Emily - 12th

             Mason - 22nd

Year 6: Millie - 8th    Kiera - 12th

All the children who finished between 1st and 10th place have qualified for the West Yorkshire round of the competiton.
