Welcome to the Sports Page for 2021-2022

Here you will find the latest updates of the sporting events that will take place throughout the year. We can't wait to share with you our sporting achievements through competitions and also through our core values.


Elite Sports Academy Girls Football Tournament

On Tuesday 23rd November, St Thomas’ girls football team attended the Elite Sports Academy Girls Football Tournament at Holbeach United. From goals galore to penalty queens, you wouldn’t think that this was their 1st ever tournament! Out of 12 teams, the girls came 2nd overall which is an excellent achievement. In the final, only one goal was the difference. This is a tremendous achievement and all at St Thomas’ are extremely proud of our girls football team!


Spalding Hockey Tournament

We were very honoured to be invited back to this amazing tournament on Friday 19th November. We have worked very hard in training and came into this tournament feeling more confident. As we progressed through the games, many schools commented on our progress, specifically how we moved the ball quicker, more confident in tackling and finding the space when we do not have the ball. We may have lost all of our games but we came away from the tournament knowing that we have progressed and the knowledge that we will continue to progress throughout the rest of the tournaments. 

Elite Sports Academy Boys Football Tournament

On Tuesday 16th November, St Thomas’ boys football team attended the Elite Sports Boys Football Tournament at Holbeach United. Not only did they play exceptionally well and score lots of goals, they demonstrated a great display of respect and encouragement towards other teams. Overall, the boys finished runners up in the Silver Cup. We are all extremely proud of their achievements. 

Boston and District School Sports Partnership - 7 a side football

On the 4th November, the boys football team competed in a boys tournament at the new Boston United football stadium. Before the tournament, they received a stadium tour, which they all found very interesting. During the day, the boys showed all our sporting and core values and were a credit to the school. Lots of goals were scored, teamwork shown and smiles all round. All at St. Thomas’ are very proud of their achievements. 


Hockey - Spalding Hockey Club

St Thomas’ were extremely honoured to be invited to take part in a hockey tournament hosted at Spalding Hockey Club. This was the first tournament for nearly two years! During the tournament, we played against 4 other local schools. Overall, St Thomas’ drew one game and lost three. We came away from the tournament encouraged with our development and knowledge on what we need to continue to work on. Our next hockey tournament will take place on Friday 19th November. 

Infinity Academy Football Tournament

St Thomas’ made the short journey to Boston St Nicholas to take part in the first Infinity Academy tournament of the year. The children that represented our school truly shone as they showed our core values throughout the tournament. We came 5th overall but left the tournament knowing that we had strengthened relationships with our friends from other schools across the Infinity Trust. 


In September, Year 6 went to Caythorpe for PGL. The children certainly were able to put the core values into action and role model the incredible manners that they have. Resilience was key through the week whether it was when at the top of a wall or pole or when hunting for clues necessary to solve a problem. Fellowship was demonstrated in abundance - the support and cheering provided was clear to all. Once the children were able to show trust to the leaders in the equipment, they were able to abseil down walls, jump off high poles, tie challenging knots and allow themselves to stay away from their parents they demonstrated great skills. All the adults were impressed and could not believe how quickly they climbed up or down.
