WF12 9PD to find Headfield Junior School.
At Headfield we have seen a huge impact that the School Sports Partnership can have on the attendance of school clubs, both during and after schoool. The idea of competing for school gives our children a real insentive to take part in after school sessions. Our aim is to enter as many events as possible while always ensuring that we take in to account other factors - both academic and community related.

After lots of valiant efforts to the years 6 teams pulled out all the stops to pull of an amazing Headfield first. Both the year 6 girls team and the year 6 boys team qualified for the Leeds Road finals. An amazing effort team, well done.

H.O.T. Football tournament - 09/10/14
The first sporting event organised by the PE co-ordinators at Thornhill J&I, Overthorpe and Headfield was a roaring success. 3 teams from Thornhill, 2 from Overthorpe and 3 teams form Headfield competed in a friendly but definetly competitive atmosphere.
The even saw Headfield and Overthorpe meeting in the final and the close match was only settled on penalties with Overthorpe taking away the HOT Cup. Would they retain it at the next H.O.T. event?

Cross Country -15/10/14
The second round of the cross country competition took place on a cold, wind swept, Leeds Road playing field. The weather couldn't dampen the excitement as both the year 6 boys and the year 6 girls teams readied themselves on the start line.
The compeition was tough and the running was quick but no one was as fast as Esa who, once again, took first place and with it, booked his place at the West Yorkshire Winter Games at Leeds Met for the 2nd year running in March of next year.
Sports Hall Athletics - 19/11/14 & 13/1/15
On Tuesday the 19th of November our school took part in a sports hall sthletics competition at Thornhill Academy. In previous years our school had achieved a best place of 3rd against other local schools. This year we won and qualified for the next stage of competition against other winners. On Tuesday 13th of January the team went to that competition and cam 3rd in that competition. We are very proud of all of the team and their fantastic achievement!
'Sports hall athletics was the first after school club I did in year 6 and I really enjoyed it. It was an amazing experience! My favourite field event was the javelin. I wasn't good at it to begin with, but I improved a lot. On the last session I threw the javelin and lost it! Chest pass was hard because I didn't know how to throw the ball, but in the competition I think I came joint first and scored 6.5! My favourite track event is the hurdles. The competition was tough and tiring, but it was AWESOME!' - Tayyib, year 6
Netball Competition - 04/03/15
Only four teams made it to this years partnership Netball competition and two of those were from Headfield. Both teams had very different experiences on the night - but both left the competition with huge smiles.
The two opening games Headfield A versus Thornhill saw the greatest contrast as Headfield A ran out 7-0 victors with Nazish scoring 5 times while Laibah and Ziyyad both picked up one goal each. Meanwhile Headfield B were soundly beaten by Raventhorpe 1-10 with Hanah scoring the only goal for the B team.
The second round of matches saw Ravensthorpe pick up full points against Thornhill while the two Headfield teams faced each other with the A team winning 3-0 despite the valiant efforSt of Khayam, who defended superbly in the first half.
The thrid and final round of matches saw Thornhill beat Headfield B 1-0 while the 'big match' between Headfield and Ravensthorpe was played at a frantic pace with some outsanding netball on show at times. Headfield went 2 goals ahead thanks to the assured shooting of Nazish and could have edged further ahead. Not to be out done, Ravensthorpe played brilliantly and pulled one back, only to see Headfield take back a two goal lead - again from the shooting of Nazish. A goal from Raventhorpe with 3-4 minutes remaining meant a nervy finish for Headfield but they held out to win the competiton and make it through to Batley on Tuesday 17 March - Well done!
Netball Competition - 17 March
After drawing our first game, Headfield played some wonderful netball to come through as overall winners - retaining the Netball Trophy for the second year in succession and ensuring that Team Headfield would, once again get to compete at the Kirklees Finals - could we go one step further this year?
Netball Competition - North Kirklees Finals - 24 March 2015
The draw was not a kind one for Headfield. We were up against Huddersfield Grammar and Netherton in the league competitions (both of whom had who the competition in recent years).
Huddersfield Grammar were a very difficult team to play against and although we restricted them to only two goals, their defensive work was outstanding and prevented any clear shots on goal for Headfield.
Our second game, against Gomersal, was very different and we scored numerous times with Samrin leading the way magnificently.
The third and final league game was against the eventual winners and, if truth be told, they out classed Headfield by a mile. There defensive work was great and the accuracy of their shooting was awe inspiring.
Sadly, Headfied didn't make it in to the top half of the competition. We had to play for the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th places. We played the teams in our half of the table and proved our worth winning all three of our games, and with them the fifth place.
Had the draw been kinder, one can't help wonder if a third place meddle might have been on the cards. Well done team you were all amazing.
Cross Country - School Winter Games - 25 March 2015
After his success at the the netball competition, Esa was then required to run the mile or as the only member of Team Headfield to make it to the finals - watch the video below to see how he got on...
Netball - North Kirklees Finals - 24 March
Cricket Competition Report 2015
On Tuesday the 2nd of June 2015 our school played in a cricket competition involving local schools.
Our first match was against Bywell's second team. We fielded very well taking 8 wickets and severely limiting their score. When it was our turn to bat we were just as ruthless scoring a total of 77 runs and winning the match with ease. The highlights of the match being Aadil's superb wicket in which he caught and bowled the bowl and Iyaaz's 2 run outs.
Next up was Bywell's first team. The wind had really picked up for this game and was now blowing across the pitch towards the batters' leg side. As nearly all our batters are right handed and are very positive in their batting, regularly aiming for sixes, this caused us problems as time and again the wind held the ball up on the boundary and we were caught out. By the end of our innings we had lost 10 wickets, 8 to catches! Within our batting there was a great run of scoring by Safwan who scored 4, 4, 6, 4, 6, 6 and 1 off of consecutive balls. Despite some great fielding, with another 2 run outs by Iyaaz, the scores were tied at the end and we lost on wickets taken.
The other big match we were expecting came up next again St Patrick's. When fielding we took 7 wickets, 5 of which were clean bowled! We had restricted their scoring well. With the bat we struggled against a strong fielding side and narrowly won thanks largely to the partnership of Nasar and Safwan again.
Our final match was against Westmoor in which we scored freely with the bat despite losing 4 wickets (3 by run outs!) with Muhammad and Safwan hitting 3 sixes each. Our fielding was as ruthless as our batting and we kept Westmoor's score exceptionally low.
Girls Cricket Competition 15 June 2015
In a wonderful contrast to the boy’s competition, the weather was lovely and sunny and with the picturesque surroundings of Armitage Bridge we were doing well from the start.
Our first match was against Hepworth who batted first. With some excellent fielding work we managed to take 5 wickets, although with our bowling cost us quite a few runs through wides and no balls, Hepworth managed to score 35. The girls batted well, only losing one wicket and being helped by 18 from Nazish and 12 from Safia from their overs, we scored 48 and won the match after some confusion over which school was which was cleared up.
Our second match was against Meltham. We fielded well again and kept their score down to 34. Our batting in this match was superb with 5 of our team getting into double figures in their over giving us a final total of 69!
The next match against Reinwood was to be the last of our group with us needing a win to get through to the semi-finals. We fielded very well, with Safia taking 2 excellent catches! Reinwood only managed 25 runs. Our girls were beginning to find their way with the bat now and powered home a magnificent 91 total with 20s from both Aminah and Ayesha! We had made it through the first round for the first time ever!
Our semi-final was against Holmfirth with Westmoor in the other semi-final. Could it be an all Dewsbury final? Holmfirth won the toss and elected to field first. We batted well against a formidable fielding team with excellent bowlers and a well organised field with good catchers. Aminah managed a couple of 6s and Nazish a couple of 4s, however we also lost 4 wickets, which considering the strength of the opposition was actually very good. We posted a total of 32 for them to beat. It started badly with them scoring 16 off the first over, however we took a wicket in the next and lowered their score a little in the next. Again they struck with 18 off the next over and it was looking bad until we took another wicket in the next over. We kept their scoring down over the next 2 overs and with their final pair to come we were 6 behind and needing 2 wickets. Unfortunately for us, Holmfirth had saved their best until last and scored 22 off their next over and the game was all but over. Their final score was 65.
Although we lost in the semi-final there can be no complaints as we lost to a team that were absolutely excellent and our girls played very well throughout the tournament, were extremely supportive of each other and have become the most successful girls team in our school’s history!
Tag Rugby Competition 19 June 2015
Two teams travelled to Leeds Road to take part in the re-arranged rugby competition. Both teams played some excellent rugby throughout the day, against some very good teams, both finishing mid-table.
The 'green' team played against the eventual winners of the competition, Batteyford, who put up an amazing defence while scoring 2 tri's against us. Our only other defeat came against a very physical St. Marys side who were unlucky not to take second place and with it a game in the semi-finals.
The other 7 games saw Headfield 'green' win 5 games and draw 2. Unfortunately our opponents final opponents scored a tri in the dying seconds of the last game and denied Headfield a 6th win and with it the additional point that would have given Headfield a semi-final place.
Once again Headfield demonstrated that we were both competitive and sporting. A number of staff from other schools and rugby coaches commented on how good our rugby was. I was also impressed with how the teams responded to defeat and victory. They were positive in their play and encouraged each other throughout the day. Their attitude towards the Sports Leaders, who were acting as match officials, was exemplary.
