On Wednesday, Bryn Offa’s Basketball team represented Oswestry in the North Shropshire competition.
The standard was incredibly high, but the team played their best basketball to date and really rose to the challenge!
We finished a credible 4th position overall. Well done to Tom, George, James, Rachel, Olivia and Lily-Mae.
On Wednesday 6th February, Bryn Offa’s tag rugby team represented the Oswestry area in the North Shropshire competition. The team played to an incredibly high standard in very tricky conditions. They managed to win their first three games before losing the final four marginally. A great achievement to get so far in this competition.
Well done to the team
Following their huge success in the Oswestry Area competition, Bryn Offa’s athletes represented Oswestry in the North Shropshire competition. Both our boys and girls team performed amazingly well. The boys finished in joint 1st position on points only to narrowly lose out to Market Drayton Junior School in a sudden death relay.
The Girls however, went on better. They won the overall competition and will now represent North Shropshire in the County final on MArch 5th.
Well done to both teams – They were brilliant!
Bryn Offa’s athletes produce a sensational display in the final round of the Sportshall Athletics competition held at The Marches school on Tuesday evening. The efforts of the children secured the trophy for the second year in succession, holding off the challenge from 10 other teams. What a fantastic achievement! We now progress to represent the Oswestry area in the second round of the competition.
Well done to all of the team, and a huge thank you to all of the parents for supporting and transporting the team.

All the Year 6 children are now fully back into the swing of the new academic year. It started in the best possible way, with a visit to Arthog. All of the children had a great time on each of the activities, working as a team and preparing themselves for the challenges that lie ahead. All of the staff who accompanied them from school and the Arthog instructors were incredibly impressed with not only their behaviour but also the way in which they supported each other throughout the week. Please see the photos below. A great time was had by all.
