We entered 2 teams into the Partnership cricket festivals this year. This is a competitive event where they play matches against other local lower schools. Both teams performed fantastically, showing excellent cricket skills and all of the school values. One team managed to win all of their matches and progressed through to the partnership finals a week later. Again they had a great day, had a few wins, but didn't manage to progress to the next stage. We are very proud of all of our children who took part, they were a credit to Wootton Lower School.
