Our Tug of War, Farrier Competition and Children’s Art Competition results are listed here.

The Children’s Art Competition theme this year is Northern Landmarks.  It is open individuals as well as to school groups, it always makes a colourful showpiece of creative talent. Its broad brief aims to give teachers and carers the flexibility to produce a range of work that could link to the curriculum, and be adapted to involve several subjects.

The classes are divided into 2D (painting, drawing, collage, printed out CAD designs, etc.) and 3D or relief work (models, jewellery, ceramics, mosaic, armour, and such like).

There are three age groups – EYFS (Reception) and KS1; KS2 and KS3+. We also award prizes for group work, and for individuals with a ‘Best in Show’ and ‘Reserve Best in Show’.
