sports award logo

Wow! Whitehouse Common Primary School are extremely proud to have been awarded the Sutton Coldfield Sports Awards 2015 - Aspire Trophy - Primary School of the Year. The prestigious event recognizes and celebrates the sporting achievements of schools and clubs from across the local area. 

To be nominated for the award the school needed to show that gives its’ pupils a wide range of activities to participate in, within a high quality physical education programme. We needed to prove we that engage our pupils in a variety of extra-curricular sport. (The school should show commitment to School-Club links). Children are able to access high quality competitive opportunities at all levels of competition (Level 1 – Intra school, Level 2 – Inter school). WHC shows a commitment to engaging the least active students in sport and physical activity and ensures that KS1 students have high quality PE lessons to ensure they are physically literate by seven years old.

Mr Melville attended the awards ceremony last Friday evening at Sutton Town Hall. Look out for us in the Sutton Coldfield Observer for more details about the event and the winners of the other categories.

AVFC Tournament Success

Whitehouse Common Football Team took part in the AVFC Premier League School's Football Tournament today.

We played brilliantly against some stern opposition. First up was The Shrubbery who we beat convincingly 3-0. Next up was St. Joseph's who beat us 3-2 in a close encounter which we were unlucky to lose. Banner's Gate were dismissed with a 4-0 win followed up by a 4-1 win over Blackwood.

The two clean sheets were especially impressive due to the fact the goals were huge! Well done to Felix in goal.

We waited nervously to see if our 10 points were enough to see us through for our group. Success! We were through to the Semi-Finals. The boys groaned when they heard we had been drawn against Little Sutton (the best performing team in the group stage). Despite our nervous facing such strong opposition we stepped out on the pitch for the Semi Final match.

10mins later the whistle blew for extra time both teams having scored a goal. We went at it in the last stages of the match but unfortunately Little Sutton prevailed (they went on to win the whole tournament).

We are very proud of our efforts and have shown we have improved greatly since our first match of the season against Four Oaks. Things are looking good for the future.

That was our last football match until the second spring term due to the weather and light. We will pick up the league fixtures and cup matches then.

Year 4 Football Tournament

Last night boys and girls from Year Four competed against other local school in the WSAS Y4 Mixed Football Competition. The children in Year Four have been learning football skills in their PE lessons and were selected based on their performance.

The children won two out of four within their group and were unlucky to proceed through into the finals.


Things certainly look promising for when these children enter Years 5 and 6 when they will have many more opportunities to compete.  

Football Success

We are really impressed with the boys in the WHC Year 5 and 6 football team. After a difficult start to the season losing to Four Oaks Primary and Little Sutton - the boys have achieved success against Boldmere Primary School. 

The start off the match didn't start brilliantly as the boys were 2-0 down within the first 10mins. Despite another bad start, the boys kept their heads held high and battled on. It wasn't until late in second half that the boys grabbed a goal back. Inspired by their good football, the boys pressed forward and grabbed the equaliser. 1 minute before the end WHC scored a 3rd goal to win the match.

Well done boys.

Cruising Confidently in the Cross Country

On the 22nd September our year 6 cross country team embarked upon a monumentous challenge...the Bishop Walsh circuit. Not only is this a difficult circuit but our efforts were made even more impressive when it is noted that our team was made up purely with year 5 pupills due to our year 6's being away at Howtown. What a job they did! With the the parents and Mrs Stevens cheering them on, the pupils ran approximately one and half miles with two of our pupils coming in the top 20 and one of our pupils coming in the top 10!

cross country imageThe course itself was tricky due to the recent rain and the slow gradient but that did not stop our pupils persevering and throwing in all they had to producing the best perfromance they could. All of the children finished the race with heads held high. Well done to all the pupils who entered, you all did fabulously. A special mention to Joe who came a terrific 10th and Matthew who came a fabulous 20th out of all the schools in the local area. 

Well done all!

Our cross country team:

Joe, Matthew, Joshua, Oliver, Zeb, Kyan, Archie, Rohan, Libby, Sadie, and Amy.
