Sporting Activities

Our Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 children recently took part in aInter-House Netball and Football tournament. Each House Team (St Mark, St Matthew, St Luke and St John) all played every other House Team. They all tried really hard and the scores were very close, however St Luke won by one goal's difference! Well done everyone who took part.

Well done to our fantastic football team who represented Sacred Heart at the English Football League Schools Tournament. The team played three group games and did really well to win two and lose one with the highlight being a 7-0 victory in the final game. Unfortunately, only one team progressed through the group stages and Sacred Heart were extremely unlucky when they lost out by goal difference. The team showed great ability and sportsmanship throughout and did Sacred Heart proud.

Here are our Reception class children who represented SHB at Gateshead Early Years sports festival. The children took part in a range of activities such as Elephant Football, Caterpillar chase, Crocodile Challenge and Tiger Rugby. Each and every child tried their very best and set a shining example of our school. Well done Reception! 


Our KS1 children had a fantastic time today at the KS1 Sports Festival. The children took part in a range of activities and this pictures here is the 'pterodactyl push'. They really did our school proud! Good job! 

Ten Year 2 and Year 3 children had a fantastic time at Gateshead Leisure Centre taking part in the KS1 gymnastics festival. They learned their routine and performed perfectly on the day! Well done everyone!


Seven girls and two boys from Year 4 and Year 5 took part in the final round of the Gateshead Netball Tournament and won the entire competition! They made all of Sacred heart proud, especially Mrs Iles, their coach. Well done girls and boys!

Six girls from Year 4 and Year 5 competed in the Gateshead Girl's Football Championship. The girls did really well and although we didn't win, we were still very proud of their efforts. Well done girls!

Year 6 set off on the public bus to face other year 6 teams in a Kwik Cricket  tournament. Despite the sweltering heat our year 6 team showed fantastic agility, coordination and team work! In the playoffs our A team came first within their group and our B team came 2nd. This meant that our A team had to go head to head with St Joseph's, Blaydon to try and get a place in the Gateshead County finals. Despite showing unbelievable skills and determination we missed out on the final by a mere 30 points. We had a fantastic day and look forward to showing off our cricket skills in the future!

    Well done to our football team who represented Sacred Heart at the Gateshead under 11's tournament. The team played four group matches and won three out of four (3-2, 2-0, 2-0) to secure second place and progress into the semi-finals. The semi finals against Front Street was a great success with a 1-0 lead taken at the start of the game (courtesy of Archie) which was defended until the final whistle. The final came next and a match up against local rival St Mary's, Whickham. The team battled well but unfortunately lost the match 3-0. The team had a great time and brought back a lovely runners up trophy which we are all proud of!

Our Netball team took part in the Gateshead Schools Netball tournament at Gateshead Leisure Centre. The children played amazingly well to come second out of 12 schools. They were beaten by 1 goal in the end.  Well done everyone!

8 children from Year 4 and Year 5 went to Whickham Comp to play in a basketball tournament.

We played 4 matches and although we didn't win we tried really hard and had fun along the way!
