Sports Day

Stokes Wood held 3 fantastic sports days this year. Every child was continuously active ( all 489 of them). Photos of the reception and nursery events can be viewed on their year group tabs. You can see that both KS1 and KS2 pupils also had a very active and fun time.

Physical Activity

Congratulations to every child who has represented the school in the during the Spring Term in the many competitive and participation events.

At Stokes Wood we pride ourselves in achieving  a high percentage of participation as well as excellence in physical activity. We want to encourage everyone to be physical active, whatever their ability and therefore provide a wide range of opportunities.

Girls Football

We have so many amazing girls, we need 2 teams! On Monday they played the first series of league matches at New College and did extremely well! Team A won 1, drew 3 and Team B drew 3 and lost 1. Well done!

Both teams got a mention in the tournament organiser’s report:

The  match between  Forest Lodge v Stokes Wood A played out as a very competitive match with Meredith and Lena of Stokes Wood A taking the honours with their attacking and shooting skills.

In round 5 the match Stokes Wood B v Forest Lodge was a well fought 0-0 encounter with all players taking the honours by their focus, efforts and commitment during the match.

Respect and Fair Play


Well done all!

Cross Country event

40 children attended the City Cross Country on Victoria Park ON February 2nd. Once again our children ran extremely well, the Daily Mile showing what a benefit it is in keep children fit.

15 children qualified to represent Leicester City at the upcoming County Championships in Market Harborough on February 12th.  Congratulations to you all and well done to Yoshi who finished in bronze medal position in the Year 4 boys event.

Good luck!

Boccia at Aylestone Leisure Centre

Our inclusive Boccia team spent a fun and competitive day, competing in the School Games Boccia competition. As you can see from the pictures, they had a great time, met old friends and made new ones. Their boccia skills improved over the day and although they did not finish as winners, their smiles, confidence and self esteem put them at the top of the tree! Well done team!

Football at New College

After the football at New College on 24th January, the Stokes Wood team received some notable praise in the follow up report by Andy from Leicester City FC in the Community Trust:

In the match Caldecote v Stokes Wood, Max of Caldecote made a magical 60-yard run finishing off with a great strike that just went past the left-hand post. There were some superb goals with best of the day scored by Leo of Stokes Wood following a run down the right flank before striking the ball into the far corner of the net. Brilliant technique and finish.

Caldecote v Stokes Wood was full of quality football, however, for me the match of the day was Stokes Wood v Heatherbrook. This was an absolute cracker with Stokes Wood going for the win, Heatherbrook going on the counterattack with the match finishing a 0-0 draw. Thank you to both teams for a tremendous performance. Stokes Wood won 3 and drew 1.

Respect and Fair Play - Top Schools
Caldecote, Heatherbrook, Parks A, Parks B, St Mary's Fields A, St Mary's Fields B, Spinney Hill and Stokes Wood – all gained 100%

Ice Skating

80 pupils and 15 members of staff visiting Jubilee Square Icing Skating rink. After a tentative start for most children, they soon became confident enough to venture out from the sides and have a go at independently skating. There were lots of Risk -taker Rubies and Resilient Ryanns .... getting up off the ice and giving it another go! Plenty of bruises too!

School Games Table Tennis Tournament

The table tennis team made a great impression at the recent tournament. The players grew in confidence throughout the morning. The girls won and have qualified for the final. The boys just missed out on the final but Kasper was recognised as player of the tournament for his sporting behaviour, resilience and happy demeanour. Well done everyone.

Cross Country

The first cross country races since 2019 tool place at Victoria Park on 4th November. Well done everyone. Look at the determination and effort on the faces of the children and in some cases smiles too!! There were some excellent results too. Some children discovered they were good at something they were completely unaware of! Keep it up.

Football Week 2

The boys played really well this week, with new children given the opportunity to represent the school. The first game was a 0-1 defeat to Woodstock. The second game was a thrilling 1-1 draw with Braunstone Frith with the goal coming from Logan Birkin. The boys’ third game was a 0-1 defeat to a strong Forest Lodge side. The fourth match against Spinney Hill was a 1-1 draw, the goal coming once again from Logan. The boys’ final game was a battle against Inglehurst Junior School. The Stokes Wood team was 3-0 down, but a penalty from Logan and a long range finish from Jaden meant it was a tense last few minutes searching for an equaliser. Sadly we ran out of time and lost 3-2. The boys played really well and were ambassadors for Stokes Wood. Man of the Match – Logan!

Danone Football tournament

Our boys and girls teams were invited to play in the Danone tournament with 3 other boys and girls teams. Both teams played well and finished 4th and 3rd respectively. The boys were competitive throughout and were unlucky not to win a match. The girls played really well in their last match and won 3-2. Well done both teams.

Rice Bowl

In the first round of the Rice Bowl, Stokes Wood drew Glenhills Primary at home. It was an excellent match and it was only 2 excellently taken goals that could beat our goal keeper to win 2-1. Well played boys.
