Sporting Success

There has been an incredible amount of sporting achievement from our students over the last few months in many different disciplines.


In September, a mixed Y7 and Y8 netball team won the Versatility Tournament and a mixed Y9, 10 and 11 team won their Versatility Tournament. The school then entered teams in the Y7, 9 and 10 Burton Schools netball leagues. John Port went on to win all three leagues, with no team losing a single game.


The Y7 and Y8 football teams are also worthy champions, having recently won the Derby and District Football League, as well as the Derbyshire County Cup, respectively.


In swimming, Mia Slevin has qualified for the European Junior Championships in Hungary for 200 Backstroke, after winning the British Championships recently - which means that she is one of the top swimmers in her age group in GB.  Not only is she incredibly talented in this discipline but she also represents Derbyshire in Netball as well.


We are incredibly proud of what our students continue to achieve. Well done!
