Key Stage 1 Handball

The Key Stage 1 children competed brilliantly at the Handball competition. They soon picked up the rules, were scoring goals and winning games. They represented the school wonderfully. Thank you to the children and parents.

Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to the Year 3 and 4's who went along to the Sportshall Athletics Competition at Belper Leisure Centre and became champions for 22-23. There were 13 schools in the competition and the children competed in all the events, winning many including some of the individual events. They encouraged each other and thoroughly deserved the win and they were a credit to the school. Well done!

Year 5/6 Sportshall Athletics

Our year five and six Sportshall Athletics team absolutely smashed it at Belper Leisure Centre on Monday.  Nine children competed in three field events (standing long jump, chest push and speed bounce) and three different relays against TEN other schools!  We worked so hard and supported each other so much and our effort paid off as we placed third out of eleven schools.


Amazing results from Denby Free!

KS1 Sportshall Athletics Competition

04.10.22 - Wow, the Year 1's and 2's along with our amazing Reception child did a wonderful job representing Denby Free School at the Athletics competition yesterday. They were speed bouncing, long jumping and throwing followed by a number of different obstacle races. Well done to all involved you made both myself and the parents very proud.

KS2 Boys and Girls Football

We kicked off a new year of competitions in style, by taking two brilliant teams to the AVSSP KS2 Football tournaments.  We took both a boys' and girls' team and they both did fantastically well!  


Representing Denby Free for the boys were Harley, Josh, Toby, Isaac, Jack and our captain Alfie.  The boys won two games and lost two games in their group, with incredible goals scored by Alfie.  The team's journey ended in the knockout stages, but they worked so well as a team and made me incredibly proud.


Denby Free girls were Lola, Grace, Eva, Isla, Matilda and our captain Scarlett.  They started off with a fabulous win, with two goals from Scarlett then went on to draw two games and lose one.  They were so energetic and positive, which lead them to being awarded the SPIRIT OF THE GAMES AWARD! Well done girls, so proud of you!


Another super evening of sport for Denby Free.
