A healthy interest in sport is promoted and children compete regularly (often at A, B and C team levels) against schools from the locality and all over the North-West of England. Boys have regular football, rugby and cricket fixtures whilst the girls compete at netball, hockey and rounders. Cross-country, swimming, athletics and trampolining competitions allow boys and girls to represent the school at the same occasion.
Emphasis is placed both on participation and excellence, with practices held in most of the above sports at different age levels during lunch breaks or after school. King’s has been highly successful in gaining many sporting honours in both local and regional competitions. In recent years, King’s Juniors have regularly been Macclesfield Primary Schools football, swimming, netball and cross country champions and our trampolinists are National champions in three age categories. Last year, our U11 rugby team were unbeaten all season and won both the AJIS sevens and 12 aside competitions.
King’s Juniors also have the opportunity to take part in a number of optional activitiy holidays which include a Sports Tour (in Year 6) to compete in The Jersey Games. A list of trips available is produced in September each year.
