Goodmayes Primary School pupils have enjoyed an excellent summer term on the sporting field.

The basketball team won the Redbridge Mini Games and went on to represent the borough at the London Youth Games at Crystal Palace, finishing ninth overall.

And their football team also finished top of their group in the borough competition, before bowing out at the semi-final stage to finish third overall in Redbridge.

Club/sport co-ordinator Nicky Skinner also staged a mini friendly football tournament for year five and six teams recently, where Goodmayes went up against rival teams from Coppice Primary and St Peter’s & Paul’s.
