Hyndburn & Ribble Valley Primary Cross Country Competition

The 2019 Inter-school primary cross-country event was held on Thursday 3rd October at Wilsons Playing Fields Clayton le moors. This event was extremely popular as we had 25 Hyndburn School teams & 23 Ribble Valley School teams taking part in the races. The children had obviously been taking time out to train as they displayed some fantastic running. Each team consisted of up to 6 girls and 6 boys, the top 4 girls & boys runners scored points for their school’s overall team result. Below are displayed the top 3 individual runners for each race and the overall girls/boys team along with overall Hyndburn & Ribble Valley team scores.

This event would not take place without the help of the volunteers from Hyndburn Athletics Club, Ribblesdale High School students and marshalling the event Accrington Academy Sports leaders. The Partnership would like to thank all the individuals that helped this event run smoothly.

The top 25 runners within each race have been selected to run in the East Lancashire County Final. Well done to all of these!! If you would like to see any pictures taken from the event Kipax were down at the event taking some excellent photos WWW.KIPAX.COM

Ribble Valley High 5 Competition


Thirteen schools attended this years High 5 competition at Clitheroe Grammar, the sun was shining and so was the talent! The teams played in a group stage first, it was evident that the standard of play by all the schools was very high. The top 2 teams from each group made it through to the semi finals, making it into the final in a very tense game was Whalley V St Marys Langho. The overall end results with a well deserved winning title was Whalley Primary. This team now qualify to represent the Ribble Valley at the Lancashire School Games. Well done to all the teams that took part!!

Girls Cricket

Four teams entered this years girls cricket competition, the event had to be held at Accrington Academy due to the weather conditions on the cricket pitches. The girls played fantastic, the winning team was Oakhill as the won all of their games. They now go through to play in the county final to represent the Ribble valley. In a close 2nd place was Benjamin Hargreaves, they will represent the Hyndburn at the county finals also. Well Done to both teams!!!

Tag Rugby

This year we held two tag rugby events the first being a festival to engage & introduce children to the sport of tag rugby. This Mega festival involved Rhyddings sports leaders delivering a circuit of activities that introduced the children to the sport, the children then got the opportunity to apply the skills learnt in some friendly tag rugby games against other teams.

The second event was also a festival but for the more experienced teams, many schools from Hyndburn and Ribble valley came along to the Clitheroe Rugby club. With the help of some Clitheroe Grammar sports leaders refereeing the games we organised friendly fixtures. The event was enjoyable displaying many a talented rugby players.

Ribble valley Year 4/5 Cricket

The Year 4/5 cricket competition had just St Michael & St John with 2 teams and Pendle with 1 team play for a county final place. Leaders from Clitheroe Grammar were fantastic at not only umpiring the cricket games but also perfecting the children cricket skills in a little mini cricket lesson. As the teams played each other it was clear from the off that Pendle had an outstanding team representing them. They then won all of their games confirming a place at the cricket county finals to represent the Ribble valley. All the children had a lovely morning playing cricket in the sun!
