Longlands School has been awarded the Gold Games Mark for provision of school sport. We are exceptionally proud of the children and their achievements.
The school's vision for school sport mirrors the whole school vision 'Right start, Bright future'. We hope to provide the children at Longlands with a sound basis on which they can develop their sporting abilities.
At Longlands we wish to promote sport, both in and outside school. See information links below for local sporting clubs.
Due to the recent investment made by the Government for Physical Education we have been able to spend the school's funding on the running of after school clubs and the equipment needed for the relevant sports. Funding is also being used to hire professionals for sports coaching, for improving curriculum PE and teacher's CPD. We are proud of the links that have been made through sport with the schools in the Market Drayton cluster

Sporting successes this year so far!
Netball and Hockey
During the Autumn Term Longlands took part in the Market Drayton cluster competition for both netball and hockey and both our teams played their way to the final in the two competitions. Their resilience paid off and they took second place overall for both events.
Our KS2 Dodge ball team played in a tournament at Lakelands on 21st June and have secured their place in the Summer Games final at the Shrewsbury Sports Village on July 4th.
In the Summer Term of 2016 the children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this new sporting event to our school. They came 1st when playing against other schools in the North Shropshire area, allowing us to represent North Shropshire in the Summer School Games. The children demonstrated exceptional skill at this event and came 1st against all the schools in Shropshire. This is a massive achievement for Longlands School and the children that took part.
Once again the Longlands archery team are on a roll again in 2017 after securing first place against other schools in the North Shropshire area. They will go onto play in the finals at Lakelands during the second half of the Summer Term this year.
Longlands went on to win at the heats of the Tri-golf tournament in Summer 1 and will be playing in the final on June 15th 2017. We all wish them good luck!
Longlands won their first cluster and will be playing on June 12th to see if they can secure themselves a place in the Summer Games final.
