Sport / P.E.

The boys had a fantastic Futsal campaign this year, winning the district competition without losing a game. This victory enabled them to qualify for the regional finals held in Leeds at the International Futsal venue. They competed exceptionally well in this competition competing against a number of Futsal clubs. After 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat, they narrowly missed out on qualification for the national finals.

Last week St John’s held its annual sports awards to recognise the success of its students across the range of sporting activities they had undertaken during the year. Approximately 180 students and their families attended the event held at the school.  The activity awards were presented by many or the schools’ partner community clubs including; Bishop Auckland St. Mary’s JFC, Bishop Auckland Rugby Club, Wear Valley ASC and Durham County Cricket Board.


Year 8 Football won the District 8-a-side Tournament on Saturday. The boys didn't concede a goal all morning, and considering the no-offside rule it made defending very tricky. Zach Hemming was confident throughout, the nearest he came to conceding a goal was from a penalty in the final. The boys came out of a tricky group beating Parkside (3-0), Ferryhill (3-0), Sedgefield (1-0) and Durham Johnston 2 (1-0). The bulk of the goals were scored by Bailey Prudhoe and Aidan Crooks.
