More than 450 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils from 23 local primary schools took part in the The Hunts School Sports Partnership event at the One Leisure Outdoor Centre in St Ives.

It featured four events – 600m run, 75m sprint, vortex throw and standing long jump – for teams made up of four girls and four boys.

The Small School Competition honours went to St Ives courtesy of a fine performance from Holywell C of E Primary School. Spaldwick Community Primary finished second with Wyton on the Hill Community Primary taking third place.
