On the 7th March the Football team competed against Woodmancote school in a friendly school football match. We ventured over to Woodmancote to play at their school where the weather was cold and wet! The children did Winchcombe Abbey proud as they gave it their all and won the game 5-0! They played and worked well as a team and showed their values at all times. Mr Hill was very impressed with the football on show and was so proud of all the children that took part, a real credit to our school.

On the 14th and 28th of February the Cross Country team competed against hundreds of other children from many Schools in Gloucestershire. The first race was at Cheltenham College Prep School where the weather was sunny and the course was flat! We then ventured over to St Edwards for the second race where the course was very different! The weather wasn't as kind and the children were quite nervous about the hills involved, however they did Winchcombe Abbey proud as they gave it their all and even sprinted through to the finish line! Miss Mackenzie and Mr Hill were so proud of all the children that took part, a real credit to our school.
