FOOTBALL NEWS - NOVEMBER 23
After their defeat to Radcliffe last week, the boys’ football team travelled to Robert Miles for their second Rushcliffe Schools league match. Carnarvon got off to a flyer and were 2-0 up inside ten minutes thanks to goals from George M (5L) and James C (5A)! Robert Miles managed to pull a goal back in the first half, but the game finished 2-1 to Carnarvon, thanks to excellent determination from all of the lads, and some fine saves from Goalkeeper Finlay S (6H). ‘Player of the Match’ was Sidney (6H), who chased every ball down and didn't leave any energy on the field!
Well done to the team!
CARNARVON BOYS’ FOOTBALL - NOVEMBER 2023

In the second half, Radcliffe fought back and were victorious over us with 3-1 win. Plenty of positives for the boys to take away though, ready for their next league game against Robert Miles, which is taking place today. Good luck boys!

“On Thursday the 19th October 2023, Carnarvon successfully won a football match against Nottingham High School. The following people that played the match were Eabha, Isla, Sophie P, Alissa, Holly L, Eve and Charlotte B.
The score was 6-1 to us and the people who scored were Eabha (1), Isla (1), Eve (1) and Rebecca (3).
We all played very well, and since we did so good we won a chocolate cookie and a drink (delicious). Throughout the whole match we were doing some amazing tackles and great defending. Our goalie, Charlotte B, did some amazing saves and only let one in. We had a very fun match and everyone played amazing.”
Match report written by Eabha.
CARNARVON BOYS V GREYTHORN - OCTOBER 2023
Carnarvon Boys 3 - 5 Greythorn
Trailing 0-4 at halftime, our lads had a bit of work to do. A magnificent second half deserved more than the 3 goals that they did score, but despite the defeat, they left the field knowing that they had put on a thoroughly entertaining game for parents on the touchline.
CROSS-COUNTRY AT BERRY HILL PARK - OCTOBER 2023
It’s been a very long time since Carnarvon have managed to field 3 girls’ teams and 3 boys’ teams for a Saturday morning event - brilliant!
And what a morning it turned out to be: Toby won the boys’ race and was followed in by another 6 Carnarvon boys all finishing in the top 13 places. Our A & B teams stand in first and second place in the league.
A special mention to Edith and Harry, who both finished in the top 20 in their respective races - fantastic running given they are Year 4 children in a Year 5/6 race!
As always, thank you to the parents for the lengthy journey to the venue and to the children for their commitment to a school event early on a Saturday morning - you did us proud!

CARNARVON GIRLS v BARNABY ROAD
We are really proud of the way the girls have played throughout this year, they have reached 3 semi-finals (the Rushcliffe Cup, the County Cup and the Semi-Final of the Ruddington tournament. What a successful year you have had.
Last nights match against Barnaby Road ended in a 3-0 loss, but the girls showed a lot of fighting spirit and played really well!
CARNARVON 6 - 0 HEYMANN
It was a comfortable game in which the girls dominated from start to finish, though a tough game awaits in the semi-final...
What a great tournament that the boys had: winning 4 games and drawing the other in the group stages, they qualified for the semi-final as group winners! Facing a very good Ruddington side, they lost 2 - 0, but could still go home with their heads held high after a good morning's work! Well done boys!
CARNARVON 1 - 9 TOLLERTON
Carnarvon played against National Finalists - Tollerton! Carnarvon had the 'audacity' to score first, though that was like kicking a hornets' nest as an excellent Tollerton side dominated the rest of the game.
CARNARVON 0 - 4 CANDLEBY LANE
Yesterday, Carnarvon Year 6 boy’s played in the County Cup quarter-final match which was held at home. They played really well against strong opposition but sadly, didn't end the game as they would have liked. Well done to everyone who played and it was great to see Saint and Lukus making their belated school debuts!!
FOOTBALL NEWS APRIL 2023…..
CARNARVON v CANDLEBY LANE
It was a confident performance in the sunshine from our girls (and a hat trick from Grace) as they breezed into the semi-final of the Rushcliffe Cup last Friday. We are sure much stiffer competition awaits! Go girls!
On Saturday morning, the girls’ football team played at the Ruddington Tournament.
They won the group stages with 3 wins and Juliet keeping 3 clean sheets in goal. The girls played some really nice football with lots of shots on goal and some really strong defending, reaching the semi –finals where we faced Lady Bay.
The semi-final was a really fast-paced game and the girls worked really hard, but Lady Bay came out on top.
Well done girls!!
YEAR 5 AND 6 FOOTBALL MATCH AT BINGHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL

FOOTBALL NEWS - MARCH 2023
Carnarvon Girls 2 - 0 Robert Miles
A confident and dominant display from our girls, with goals from Eva and Scarlett, sealed a well-deserved victory and a trophy against our local ‘rivals’.
Carnarvon Boys 2 - 4 Robert Miles
A fair result against a strong Robert Miles side. Only some incredible goalkeeping from Flynn kept the score to 0-1 at half-time. A fantastic fight back and two goals from Max put Carnarvon in front for a while, but Robert Miles finished strongly as deserved winners.
Carnarvon and Robert Miles have been competing for these two trophies since 2012; given the impending retirement of the Headteacher at Robert Miles, we have renamed these trophies “The Gilbey Cups” in recognition of the close sporting ties between these two schools over the years and the role that Mr Gilbey has played in that.
NETBALL NEWS - MARCH 2023
Carnarvon Netball Team has taken part in two netball tournaments in the last two weeks.
“I was immensely proud of all the girls for getting involved because, for the majority, it was their first ever proper match. The first tournament was at Nottingham High School and it was incredible to see the improvement after the first game, and by the end of day, real progress had been made, resulting in three fantastic goals by Bella and Freya, winning the match for Carnarvon. Special mention to Juliette who was awarded ‘Fair Player’ in our group.
The second tournament was at Nottingham Girls High School and the girls continued to develop their skills, winning another match and drawing second in our group (we ended up coming third due to goal difference). A lot of fun was had by all the girls and they really did Carnarvon proud. Finally, thank you to the parents that helped with lifts.”
FOOTBALL FESTIVAL - MARCH 2023
A cold (but heart-warming) afternoon at Nottingham High on Monday where our Year 4 boys were in action at a football festival. Great to see so much young talent in action as they won two and drew two of their four games. Congratulations to Max who collected the Players’ Player award from the organisers.
SWIMMING GALA - FEBRUARY 2023
Congratulations to our swimmers for a great result last Monday. In a gala involving 10 schools, it was great performances all round. Carnarvon secured 3rd place and received a nice medal for their efforts. The gala represents a great opportunity for Bingham Swimming Club members to represent the school, which they did with pride and aplomb! Well done all of you!
WOLLATON PARK CROSS-COUNTRY EVENT - FEBRUARY 2023
A great afternoon out at Wollaton Park for our runners on the last day of last half-term. It was lovely to see so many runners representing school for the first time and a special mention to Olivia in Year 5 who has made such fantastic progress in just a few months of running.
A great team performance from the Year 4 girls who won gold medals and a rather nice ‘Team Winners’ trophy for the cabinet!
As usual, Toby and Loxley battled it out for first and second (what an amazing season those two boys have had!), finishing with gold and silver respectively in another photo finish!
Thank you again to the parents who supported the event in such great numbers - we’d have never got there without you!
CROSS-COUNTRY COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS - FEBRUARY 2023
Congratulations to our Carnarvon runners who represented Rushcliffe in the County Championships last Saturday - a wonderful achievement.

YEAR 6 ATHLETICS FINAL - FEBRUARY 2023
After qualifying for the finals in second place, our Year 6 athletics team went one better by achieving gold on Finals Night. Great performances all round, against some tough large-school opposition.

Last Friday some of our Year 6 children took part in an Athletics event at South Nottinghamshire Academy and finished 2nd out of 8 teams. They will now compete in the final on 6th February.
CROSS-COUNTRY BERRY HILL - DECEMBER 2022
It was cold, bright and frosty conditions for the last of the autumn cross-country series; another great turn-out and some medal-winning performances from our runners:
Loxley was the overall winner of the whole series (from all Nottinghamshire schools taking part!) with Toby a very (very!) close second place. Our boys also won overall team gold, with special mentions for Freddie (Year 4!) and Zack (Year 5), finishing an overall 7th and 8th over all three races.
The girls also enjoyed their successes too: Siena was overall 3rd place and our girls’ team finished second overall.
Absolutely fantastic results and a deserved reward for their commitment to Carnarvon in attending three early-morning Saturday events - Mr Hall is very proud of you all!
CROSS-COUNTRY TRIAL - DECEMBER 2022
Our fastest Year 5 and 6 runners were invited to take part in a trial for the Rushcliffe team at the forthcoming County Championships event.
Pitching themselves against the very best runners that the Rushcliffe region has to offer, Carnarvon ran races to be proud of. All four of our attending girls - Siena (who won the girls’ race) Matilda, Éabha and Freya all qualified for the Rushcliffe team (of 12 runners) along with Toby and Loxley - who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Congratulations to all of our participating runners; what talent we have here at Carnarvon!
FOOTBALL - NOVEMBER 2022
Carnarvon Girls 2 - 4 Edmund Campion
Carnarvon Boys 0 - 2 Edmund Campion
A double-header in the constant heavy rain and cold on Monday night and two defeats for Carnarvon in the Rushcliffe mini-league. Conditions were tough, but both games were competitive, though both results were fair given two very good Campion teams. Unfortunately - as the photo shows - the boys shrank in the rain and will need to grow a bit if they want to keep a clean sheet in the next game!
BERRY HILL CROSS-COUNTRY EVENT - NOVEMBER 2022
Last weekend was Carnarvon’s BEST-EVER school turn-out in 17 years of Saturday cross-country at the Berry Hill league meeting. What a way to celebrate our achievement: Toby from Year 5 and Loxley from Year 6 were virtually inseparable all the way to the finish and picked up first and second place; Year 4 Freddie finished in the top 10 and the boys’ team lie comfortably in first place in the league.
Siena in Year 6 had a PB finish of 3rd in the girls’ race and Year 5 Éabha finished 11th.
The girls currently lie 2nd in their league with the final race on 10th December. It could be an exciting one……...
COUNTY CUP AWAY MATCH - OCTOBER 2022
On Monday our girls football team played an away match against Arnold View in the County Cup, here is the match report written by one of our Sports Ambassadors, Grace:
FOOTBALL NEWS - SEPTEMBER 2022
JESSIE GRAY 1 - 2 CARNARVON
Congratulations to our girls after their fantastic win last night. 1-0 down at half-time, but they fought back magnificently in the second half and two wonderfully taken goals - one in the dying seconds of the game- by Freya, clinched their place in the next round.
A great morning of football last Saturday as our girls completed their group games undefeated and without conceding a single goal. As with these tournaments though, even with such great game stats, it still wasn’t enough to progress to the semis, but we finished a very creditable second place. Well done girls.
RUDDINGTON TOURNAMENT - SEPTEMBER 2022
It was a beautiful morning for a football tournament last Saturday, and on this occasion it was more about the taking part than the winning! All of the games were very close and given that many of the boys had not played together before, they did incredibly well. Team spirit and smiles were in abundance and the boys did themselves proud.
Well done to you all!!
