We attended the Cross Country festival at Tadcaster Grammar School where we had 28 of our children in Years 3-6 attending. The children were a credit to the school. Their sportsmanship and behaviour was superb. All of the children taking part tried their very best and didnt give up no matter what.

The sporting calendar this year is once again full with a wide range of sporting opportunities available to our children at Athelstan. We are moving into our second year as part of the Tadcaster Cluster of schools. We are grateful to Craig Whish who organises our events, mainly at Tadcaster Grammar School.
