2022/23 Football Leagues



The girls' team have been absolutely brilliant this year! They won the Autumn Tournament and then came runners-up in the County missing out on being County Champions on goal difference.

In the league, a formidable Barnby Road side beat LWJ in a tight 1-0 win which left our girls taking runners-up in the league as well. The clean-sweep was not quite to be but a fantastic season nonetheless - well done girls!


LWJ B-team have been outstanding this season. They have gone the whole season without losing a game. Very impressive. This meant they won the B-team League - huge congratulations children!


LWJ A-team started the season so well but with the league title in their hands, they lost to an exceptional performance from Barnby Road where despite losing 0-3, the LWJ keeper was Player of the Match. They then went away to Coddington, who (bar a 4-2 defeat against LWJ back in September) have been flawless, and unfortunately lost again! Hopefully, the players will come back stronger for it and learn from it - well played!


High 5 Opportunity for LWJ girls

Sports Day 2023

Last Friday, we hosted our Sports Day in what can only be described as glorious  weather!

As usual, the children were absolute stars, competing with big smiles on their faces and showing wonderful sportsmanship. Every single child contributed to a fantastic day!

Thank you to all the parent helpers and GCSE student helpers (many of which are ex-Lowe's Wongians) for supporting throughout the day! The field events were so slick and the children had multiple opportunities to shine.

Thank you to the PTA for providing much needed refreshments - the ice-pops went down a treat!

Thank you to the supporters for creating a warm, respectful and exciting atmosphere for the children to compete in. The children really appreciate you sharing in their success.

And finally thank you to the staff team without whom the day would not run! Preparation and organisation allows the children to cram as many activities in as possible on many of the staff's favourite day of the year!

Although it was an incredibly tight winning margin, congratulations go to Yellow House who overcame Blue House by a mere 2 points in our closest Sports Day to date! Green and Red House were not far behind so maybe we will have a different winner next year!

Congratulations must also go to the staff relay team who pipped the Year 6s on the line (although they perhaps should have been disqualified as they had an international standard runner who is not a member of staff as a ringer)...

Well done everybody - enjoy your summer!

Girls Spring Tournament

What a fantastic girls team we have had this year! We won the Autumn Tournament, came second in the County, came second in the league and then played our final tournament of the season at John Hunt Academy.


The girls were outstanding again! They played great football in the group stages recording three wins and a draw.


In the semi-final, they came up against Barnby Road - who also have a remarkable team this year and pipped LWJ to the league title - in a stunning game of football. I think it's fair to say that LWJ were the dominant team and looked the most likely to score in the semi-final but unfortunately for us we couldn't land a decisive blow and the game went to penalties.

After some superb goalkeeping from both keepers, Barnby Road eventually came out on top leaving our girls once again disappointed. However, their attitude was phenomenal and they pulled their socks up for the 3rd and 4th place play-off which they won 2-0 against a very good Farndon side. Congratulations to Barnby Road who were the eventual winners. We look forward to more battles next season!


I am so proud of this team and look forward to hearing of their success for school and club in the future. Maybe there will be a few future Lionesses from LWJ...


Year 4 Girls Football Festival

Thanks to Tom Partridge at Chuter Ede Balderton, we were able to take a group of Year 4 footballers to a football festival at Chuter Ede Balderton. The mini tournament was played between Lowe's Wong, Chuter Ede, Barnby Road and Farndon.

Although it was the first time playing a competitive game of football for many of the girls, you would not have known that watching them play. They were outstanding!

They won 1, drew 1 and lost 1 which matched all the other schools results meaning that every team secured 4 points! 

I was so proud of all the girls and hope this experience ignites a love for football and sport - well done girls!

Newark and Sherwood District Summer Athletics


On Thursday 22nd June 2023, Lowe's Wong Junior School took their 32 best athletes to the Newark and Sherwood District Athletics at Magnus Academy. The elite athletes from over 15 schools took part in track and field events. The atmosphere was electric and the competition was fierce! Every single event was incredibly close with some races needing to go to video technology on the line!


The Lowe's Wong children were outstanding! Their behaviour, sportsmanship and performances on the track and field were exceptional. Whether they won or lost, their attitude to their opponents was exemplary! We are incredibly proud of them and all their success. Many gold, silver and bronze medals were won and the icing on the cake was probably gold in the 100m relay for both the Year 6 boys and Year 6 girls - well done!


Many thanks go to the organisers and in particular, Magnus Academy and Dave Webster who is the chairman of the Newark and Sherwood Primary School Sports Association. There were lots of smiling faces at the event which is what it is all about!


Year 3/4 football tournament

After some impressive trials, LWJ went to the Year 3 and 4 Football Tournament full of confidence and excitement.


During the group stage they played four games winning three and drawing one. The team played some devastating football and calved out lots of chances against some really good opposition.


The team qualified from their group in first place and would meet Winthorpe in the quarter final.


The team played really good football and comfortably won the game 3-1.


The semi-final match would prove to be a tense but exciting affair with probably the two best teams in the tournament going head-to-head - LWJ v Barnby Road.

Having done some 'scouting' earlier in the tournament, Barnby Road looked a very good team. They passed the ball well and scored lots of quality goals. We were in for a battle!


I could not have been prouder of our team! They fought for every ball and ran themselves into the ground. Barnby Road were magnificent but we matched them in nearly all departments. There were some great saves made by both keepers and some great last ditch tackles - the score remained at 0-0 so extra-time loomed! 

During extra-time, both teams had the opportunity to win it but were foiled by narrow misses or moments of magic from the goalkeepers so unfortunately the only way to separate the two sides was the dreaded penalties.

Barnby Road came out on top in the penalties but our players will have learnt a lot from dealing with the disappointment of losing in the last minute and will come back stronger next time. Well played Barnby Road!


In the third/fourth place play-off, LWJ picked themselves up and went again. They ran out comfortable winners against Muskham and finished the tournament in 3rd place! An excellent first outing in the Lowe's Wong burgundy and blue!

Barnby Road went on to win the tournament so we were perhaps a penalty away from victory but credit where it is due, they had a brilliant team who ultimately deserved it!


Well done Year 4! Our school is so proud of your talent and attitude!

Nottinghamshire Schools' Football Association Girls' 7-a-side


On a bitterly cold Saturday morning, Lowe's Wong Junior represented the Newark and Sherwood District at the County Finals. Unfortunately, only four districts had played qualifiers which meant there would be three games to decide the 2022/23 girls' team for Nottinghamshire.

The first game was against Hillside who were from Hucknall. Lowe's Wong played some scintillating football and battered on the door for the whole game. Maddison squeezed in a beautiful finish at the start of the second half to take the lead and reward the girls for their excellent pressure. Despite having all of the ball, LWJ could not score again but won the game 1-0 - a great start!

In the second game, Lowe's Wong faced St Edmund's of Mansfield. Again Lowe's Wong created chance after chance. There seemed to be a force field around the St Edmund's goal and along with blocks and saves they managed to repel the onslaught. However, towards the end of the first half, Georgina skipped past several defenders before rifling it into the bottom corner to break the deadlock. The second half was a carbon copy of the first as LWJ created chances that were thwarted or missed by the narrowest of margins. Again, Georgina bagged another goal which was the very least LWJ deserved for their efforts. Final score 2-0.

The final game was set up like a cup final. Tollerton of Rushcliffe had an extremely good side. They had taken their chances in their opening two games leaving them with a very healthy goal difference. LWJ knew they had to win.

The girls were an absolute credit to the school. It was their best performance for the school so far. They tackled hard, pressed, were brave on the ball and battled against an extremely good opponent.

Tollerton took the lead after a contentious throw-in but the girls did not let that destroy them - they went again! In the second half, Lowe's Wong threw everything at Tollerton and eventually we equalised from a thunderous free kick from Georgina! Hope was rekindled!

Both teams played some fantastic football and the game was worthy of a cup final. Crunching tackles but also skilful play made football the winner. Despite throwing the kitchen sink at Tollerton, they couldn't quite get the winner and their formidable opponents will be the ones to represent Nottinghamshire in the regionals. We wish them all the best in the next round.

Our girls were an absolute credit to the school and the quality of football was sensational! Second best school team in Nottinghamshire is a stunning achievement from some potential future Lionesses!

Girls' Autumn Tournament 2022/23


On Wednesday 12th October 2022, the girls took part in the Autumn Tournament. 11 schools battled it out for supremacy at John Hunt school in Newark - thanks go to Simon Jones at John Hunt for hosting. 

The Lowe's Wong girls went into the tournament confident. Five players had represented the school last season as Year 5s and done incredibly well finishing runners-up twice. This time they wanted to go one better...

LWJ cruised through the group stage:

LWJ 1-0 Farndon

LWJ 2-0 John Hunt

LWJ 0-0 Barnby Road

LWJ 6-0 Holy Trinity

In a strange turn of events, Barnby Road and LWJ had exactly the same points, same goals scored, same goals against and a draw in their game against each other in the final league table so to determine the group winner, they had a bizarre penalty shoot-out (fortunately it was one where the loser didn't get knocked out).

The goalkeepers were outstanding in this! Lily for LWJ was the only player to score! An absolute thunderbolt past the keeper! This meant LWJ won the group and would play Winthorpe in the semi-final.

In the semi-final, LWJ were completely dominant! A combination of last gasp defending and some wonder saves by the goalkeeper stopped LWJ from running out comfortable winners. Verity bagged the only goal of the game as she cooly slotted the ball into the Winthorpe net midway through the second half! Another final for LWJ!

Like the school tournament a week earlier, Lowe's Wong Junior would meet Barnby Road in the final!

Off the back of losing two finals last year, Lowe's Wong were confident they would step up this time and play like champions. They did! They were determined, skilful, aggressive and fought for every ball! Barnby Road were excellent but the Lowe's Wong girls hit them with wave after wave of attacks! In the second half, Daisy received the ball on the half-turn and then rifled the ball into the top corner! The girls celebrated jubilantly! They closed out the game in a professional manner with no late scares or dramas.

Team captain Mia lifted the trophy - Lowe's Wong were the Newark and Sherwood District Champions!

What an impressive performance by our girls! We couldn't be prouder of them. LWJ will now represent the district at the Nottinghamshire Schools County Finals!

Well played girls!

Autumn Tournament 2022/23 season

The Autumn tournament was played on a wet and windy Friday October 7th at King's Academy in Newark. LWJ were lucky to be able to field an A and B-team in the Newark schools competition such is the strength in depth this year at Lowe's Wong Junior.

Both teams were in the same group and goals were hard to come by for the B-team as they played out several 0-0 draws. Their only defeat in the league was inflicted by their own classmates where they lost 2-0 to the school's A-team. Before the final game they had recorded two draws, a loss and a win. A big win in the final game would have seen them through. An early goal led to excitement as the team pushed and pushed for more. Unfortunately, a counter attack led to an equaliser and in the dying embers of the match Georgina clipped one past the goalkeeper into the far corner... only to see it bounce back off the inside of the post. A fantastic effort to finish third in the group and they made the school proud.

The A-team faired better in the league winning all their games and not conceding a goal. They were looking strong and went into the semi-finals very confident.

The semi-final was against the excellent Coddington (Chairman Dave Webster's pick for the tournament). It was a tense affair with quality, determined players doing their utmost to defend their goal! Bodies were put on the line with superb blocks from defenders and goalkeepers. 0-0 at the final whistle!

Extra-time was just as cagey and no quarters were given by either side. The dreaded penalties were required.   

No side deserved to lose on penalties and both sets of players were awesome in the penalty shoot out. The best players in the world miss penalties and the players - who were all brave taking them - will have learned something from this shoot-out! 

Lowe's Wong eventually won 7-6 on penalties highlighting the quality of the spot kicks. Some superb goalkeeping by Eddie in the Lowe's Wong net just pipped the talented Coddington side!

The final was a match up against familiar opposition: Barnby Road! It was an end to end game where chances were limited. In the first half, Lowe's Wong had an opportunity where Conor skipped past the Barnby Road keeper but saw his shot brilliantly cleared off the line. A few moments later, LWJ skipper - Matt - hit an audacious half volley from inside his own half! It looked to be drilled in but the Barnby Road keeper dived low to his right and produced (for me) the save of the tournament.

In the second half of the final, Barnby Road started to take control and put LWJ under some pressure. With a few minutes to go, some neat interchange between the Barnby Road forwards led to an opening for their striker, who tucked it into the bottom right hand corner with aplomb! LWJ strived to get back into the game but to no avail leaving Barnby Road Academy as Newark and Sherwood District Champions once again!

We wish Barnby Road well at the Nottinghamshire Finals!

We would also like to thank King's for hosting the tournament once again. The set-up is a wonderful place for these children to play competitive football.

Both Lowe's Wong teams played with the right attitude and respect for themselves, the opposition and the referees. We could not be prouder of each and every one of them. A credit to the school!

2021/22 Sports Report


Despite a challenging few years for everyone, things are beginning to get back to normal. School sport is back and we are happy and grateful to have it!


The highlight of the year for the school was being awarded the 'Kevin Eveleigh NDPSSA Special Sports Award' trophy. This award is voted for by other schools in the association for acts of sporting gestures. This shows how well-behaved, gracious in victory or defeat or sporting the children have been over the academic year. We are incredibly proud of them.



Football report

The school team has had a roller-coaster season! We finished mid-table with highlights including beating Coddington 7-0 and holding Autumn, Spring and League Cup winners Barnby Road to a 1-1 draw at home. This result led to Sir Donald Bailey winning the A-Team League.

The B-Team has also performed well with some great results however they finished in the European places rather than winning the much coveted league title.

Girls' football

With the inspiration of the WSL and Euro 2022, our girls' have been on absolute fire this season! They finished runners-up in both the Autumn Tournament  and the Spring Tournament where they were beaten by an outstanding Chuter Ede Balderton side.


However, in the league, they managed to beat Chuter Ede away 2-1 inflicting their only defeat of the season and resulting in LWJ jointly winning the league in an unbelievable three-way tie with Chuter Ede Balderton and Barnby Road (who also had a magnificent team and beat LWJ in our only league loss).



What a fantastic season for the girls!


Year 3/4 football

In the Year 3/4 tournament, our team performed exceptionally well! We cruised through the group stage and into the semi-finals. We won that comfortably and then went on to win the final 2-0 with goals from Jaen and Barney! No goals conceded was testament to our defence as a team - the children also showed a sporting attitude throughout!





Well done Year 4!




The sporting season was capped by the fabulous Summer Athletics at Magnus Academy. We took over 30 athletes to compete in running, throwing and jumping events. The children's behaviour and attitude was exceptional and everyone was a credit to the school!



There were many gold, silver and bronze medals but the highlight was seeing all the smiling faces on the track!


















Well done to everybody who trialled! You had a go and smashed it! We are very proud of you all! 


Sports Day


Our first Sports Day since 2019 was held on Friday 15th July! What an amazing day!


Congratulations to Yellow House for a hard fought victory!


Also, many congratulations to the Year 6 elite athletes who smashed the teachers in the pupils v teachers race - Mr Radford nearly burst a blood vessel with his effort!


I would like to thank the parent helpers for their amazing support on the field events; the Year 4 runners who scored the Year 5 and 6 morning; the Year 6 Sports Leaders in the afternoon; all the parents who came to support; all the staff who contributed so many hours to setting up and running the day; and lastly the children/athletes for making it a fun but competitive day for everybody! Thank you!


Have a wonderful summer LWJ!


Mr Luetkemeier

NSDSSA Girls' Autumn Tournament


Wednesday 13th October was two years to the day that LWJ played their last competitive tournament. The girls' were back at John Hunt after a tough enforced break but all the teams were raring to go and they put on a magnificent show! 

Thanks go to John Hunt for hosting and to NSDSSA chairman Dave Webster for organising and scoring.

Eight teams would play each other once with the top four going through to the knockout stages.

Lowe's Wong started with an excellent 1-0 win against Winthorpe. Their second game was against Sir Donald Bailey which was also a 1-0 win. Then came Chuter Ede Balderton who looked incredibly strong in their opening games. Neither team were able to break the deadlock with some fantastic saves by our goalkeeper, Emily. Final score 0-0. Another tough fixture saw LWJ come up against Barnby Road. Once again, a tight game led to another 0-0 draw. Some fine attacking play saw LWJ beat Kings 3-0 with a goal for Georgina and two for Olivia. The penultimate league game was an end-to-end battle in the Southwell derby versus Bleasby. Neither team could find a finish and it resulted in another 0-0. In a tight tournament, LWJ needed to avoid defeat against John Hunt to qualify for the knockout stage. The girls' played arguably their best game and ran out 2-0 winners. 

They finished second in the group and would play Barnby Road again in the semi-final. Barnby Road's team was full of quality players who passed it around quickly and pressed really high up the pitch. The game went to extra-time and both teams pressed for the win. In a breakaway, Georgina slotted the ball to Verity, who tapped the ball inside past the on-rushing goalkeeper, for Olivia to bury! We saw out the game 1-0 - we were through to the final!

The final was end-to-end again! Both teams were foiled by unbelievable performances by both goalkeepers! With about two minutes of the game remaining the Chuter Ede striker worked the ball well through our tiring defence. The striker smashed a shot which was brilliantly saved by Emily only for their midfielder to score the rebound. LWJ went up the other end for an equaliser but a superb double-save foiled them again from the Chuter Ede goalkeeper who was arguably player of the match! 

Final result - Chuter Ede 1-0 LWJ.

We wish Chuter Ede well in the Nottinghamshire County Finals and hope they bring the trophy to our district! The standard of girls' football in Newark and Sherwood is phenomenal at the moment and for LWJ to be the second best team is a fantastic achievement.

Great attitude, great skill, great desire - well done LWJ!


NSDSSA Autumn Tournament


On an unusually warm Friday 8th October, we were able to compete in our first  tournament for two years. Thanks go to King's Academy for hosting it superbly and to Dave Webster for doing the timing and scoring as well as ever. It was a fantastic atmosphere with the children clearly excited to be back playing competitive football for school.

The tournament was two leagues of five and the top two qualified for the knockout stages.

LWJ had a difficult group that consisted of: Sir Donald Bailey, Kings, Chuter Ede Fernwood and Mount.

We got off to the perfect start with a 2-0 win against Mount. A tight 0-0 draw then followed with Chuter Ede Fernwood as our goalkeeper and captain - Knight - pulled off some great saves. Lowe's Wong edged the third game 1-0 against Kings although it could have been more with some great attacking play. The final league game was against Sir Donald Bailey. A scrappy game led to few chances but it resulted in a 0-0 draw which halted SDB's 100% winning record and LWJ's defence was still yet to be breached. Second in the group and we were heading for the semi-finals!

The semi-final put LWJ against Barnby Road. Barnby Road's team this year is phenomenal. They had some incredible players and zipped it around quickly. In the group stage, they were top scorers and it was easy to see why.

LWJ played brilliantly! They put everything into the game, making blocks, strong tackles, superb tracking and managed to limit the best team at the tournament to few chances. They even created a couple of chances of their own against the formidable Barnby Road defence. Full time result 0-0. Extra time was necessary.

Although they were exhausted, both teams were pushing for the win. The first half of extra time was another blank and penalties were looming. Deep into the final minutes of extra time the Barnby Road captain picked the ball up 30 yards out and began a mazy run. He dribbled exquisitely past a couple of players and emphatically smashed it into the top corner. Knight's goal was finally breached! A fine goal that deserved to win the match! The Lowe's Wong players took it really well despite being so close to a final. But on reflection, it was probably a fair result.

Barnby Road went on to win the tournament in the final against Chuter Ede Balderton. We wish them well representing Newark and Sherwood in the Nottinghamshire County Finals! 

Well played Lowe's Wong! The boys had an incredible attitude throughout and were a pleasure to coach.


We're back

After a difficult 18 months, we have some school sport back at LWJ!


There are some individual cross-country events taking place over the Autumn Term (see Miss Ford for details).


We have signed up with the Newark and Sherwood School Sports Association for: hockey, athletics and Boccia. Children will be informed of trials and practices when we have dates confirmed.


The football season has started for the A-team, B-team and Girls' team.

There will be a Year 3 and 4 tournament in April which we will start planning for in the Spring Term. There will also be a Year 3/4 summer inter-school tournament for all children in those year groups.

2020 Sports Hall Athletics District Finals


On Wednesday 22nd January 2020, Lowe's Wong competed in the District Athletics Finals at Newark Academy against the other family winners.

The competition was outstanding with the best athletes from across Newark and Sherwood competing for gold.

On the track, Lowe's Wong were dominant: winning the majority of their heats. The children were amazing and applied the baton change-over exceptionally well despite limited opportunities to practice. 

In the field, the children performed admirably but other schools showed fantastic ability particularly in the javelin almost throwing the length of the Sports Hall!

After two hours of exciting competition, the results were announced:


Gold for Barnby Road Academy

Silver for Lowe's Wong

Bronze for Farnsfield St Michael's


Barnby Road were just too strong on the day - their athletes were sensational and the winning margin was very impressive. We wish them well in the county finals!


Our athletes were a credit to the school and their behaviour and attitude as always was exemplary - well done Lowe's Wong!


2020 Sportshall Athletics Family Qualifier


On Tuesday 14th January, Lowe's Wong embarked on the defence of their District Title at the family qualifier hosted by Joseph Whitaker School. The Year 5 and 6 team were raring to go and performed incredibly well on the track and field against some extremely strong teams.

After running, jumping and throwing their best, the team learned that they finished first and qualified for the District Finals on Wednesday 22nd January at Newark Academy.



2020 Futsal Finals

Happy New Year!

Lowe's Wong sport has hit the ground running (excuse the pun) with the 2020 Futsal Finals. After superb performances at the qualifying event, LWJ were able to secure two spots in the futsal finals.

This 5-a-side competition is played with a slightly heavier ball to encourage quick passing and the ball on the ground. 

Lowe's Wong Blue were in League 1 and Lowe's Wong Red were in League 2. Everybody played each other once and the winner of the group played for Gold and Silver medals. There was some scintillating football played by all the teams at the tournament. Halam, King Edwin, Sutton on Trent and Bleasby all produced some fantastic football in lots of tight games. 

Unbelievably, both the red and white Lowe's Wong teams managed to win their respective groups and would face each other in the final - a brilliant result for the school!

The final was a tense affair but played in really good spirit. LWJ Red laid siege to LWJ Blue's goal but some fine defending, wonderful goalkeeping and a touch of luck meant they did not concede during the onslaught! 

LWJ Blue then counter-attacked swiftly and accurately slotted the only goal of the game to win the tournament!

Thank you to Joseph Whitaker and Simon Mitchell for hosting and organising a memorable event for the children

We are extremely proud of both teams and the sportsmanship they showed throughout the tournament - a thoroughly enjoyable competition.


2019/20 Futsal Competition

On Thursday 12th December, Lowe's Wong entered a 5-a-side futsal competition hosted by Joseph Whitaker School. LWJ Red and LWJ Blue represented the school extremely well coming joint top of their group. They even managed to share the spoils in an exhilarating draw between themselves - the best 0-0 I've ever seen!

This meant that they both qualified for the finals on Thursday the 9th January 2020. 

Good luck LWJ!


2019 Autumn Tournament

We were back at Newark Flowserve for the Autumn Tournament and it was a bleak, cold October day pouring with rain - obviously the children loved it! The pitches were in excellent condition despite the heavy rain and the referees and organisers were superb.

Lowe's Wong went into the tournament confident. The team had made a great start to the league season and were playing some outstanding football. In the tournament, LWJ dominated their games in the group stage. They won 5 and drew 1. This form meant that Lowe's Wong would qualify for the semi-finals as group winners. 

In the semi-final, Lowe's Wong faced Chuter Ede Balderton. Chuter Ede are always a very strong and skillful side who are committed and never give up! They proved this in the semi-final. Despite Lowe's Wong having the majority of the possession and chances, Chuter Ede threw themselves in front of every shot and the keeper made several fantastic saves. When the goalkeeper was eventually beaten, the defenders were there to back him up with goal line clearances - an incredible effort. When Chuter Ede did get their chance, the striker lashed it into the back of the net! What a battling performance!

Chuter Ede 1 - 0 LWJ.

LWJ then lost in the 3rd/4th place play-off to Sir Donald Bailey and John Hunt went on to win the tournament. The large school league will be very interesting this year with all the schools showing that they can play football.

Congratulations John Hunt and well done to LWJ. Some great football that wasn't quite rewarded.

2019 Girls Autumn Tournament

The standard of football in the Newark and Sherwood District keeps improving year on year. It wouldn't surprise me if the area produced some future 'Lionesses' for the England Team.

The Autumn Tournament was held at John Hunt this year. The pitches were immaculate and the contest was hard fought and enjoyed by all.

Lowe's Wong fielded a talented but inexperienced team with the majority coming from Year 5. However, they did not disappoint on the pitch.

Lowe's Wong qualified from the group with a perfect record - winning every game and not conceding a goal meaning they qualified for the semi-final.

In the semi-final they faced Farndon who were dominating in the Girls' League and are excellent footballers. An end to end game was nerve-wracking for the coaches and spectators but was incredibly entertaining. LWJ scored in the first few minutes and then squandered chances to take the game away from Farndon. In the last few minutes however, Farndon set up a siege on the LWJ goal and hit the post with the last kick of the game! Fortunately, it bounced wide and the team from Southwell progressed to the final.

In the final, they met Barnby Road Academy who they had already played in the group stages - another superb team. The final was incredibly exciting too with chances for both teams. Lowe's Wong went in at half time 1-0 up after superb work from their number 9 Sofia! In the second half however, after great work from Barnby's Leicester City Academy player and a cheeky nutmeg, Barnby Road equalised with an arrow like strike into the top corner! It finished 1-1 which meant Extra Time.

Barnby Road's goalkeeper made at least three terrific saves in Extra Time and just as we were fearing dreaded penalties, Barnby Road scored a winning goal with no time left on the clock. A wonderful final and superb spectacle. 

Congratulations Barnby Road but we are so proud of our team - well played!

Congratulations Lowe's Wong Junior on maintaining the School Games Gold Mark for 2018/19!



We are really proud of all the children and grateful to all of the staff who help to promote a healthy lifestyle in our school. Both a healthy body and a healthy mind are vital to becoming the best that we can be! We hope to maintain this ranking next year.


We have experienced such great success at a competitive level but we have also added so much to our sporting calendar within the school too.

Sports Leaders have done more than ever before with the current Year 6 targeting  children who want to do additional sport, allowing them to take up extra-curricular sport in their lunch hours.

We offer more clubs than ever including: judo, tennis, street dance, folk dance, gymnastics, swimming, hockey, High 5, football, boccia plus indoor and outdoor athletics.

County Silver Medallists for Lowe's Wong Swimming Team

Wow! LWJ were celebrating this week as they finished second in Nottinghamshire County at the swimming gala on Monday 22nd July 2019! Another huge achievement for the Newark and Sherwood District School. Our sportsmen and sportswomen are putting Southwell on the map in terms of sporting excellence.

The children compete in individual races involving different strokes and then compete in relays. The standard was incredibly high but Lowe's Wong swam with great determination, skill and speed to win the silver medal.

Thanks again to Mrs Smith and especially Mr Follen, who gives up so much time for sport despite his incredibly busy schedule - congratulations LWJ Swim Team.

The Year 5/6 indoor athletics team were superb again this year with some electrifying performances. The school traditionally does well on the track but after Indoor Athletics training sessions, the children were really strong in the field too. They performed admirably at the County Finals but were beaten by some unbelievable athletes who were excellent competition.


The Year 3/4 team held their nerve brilliantly in what can only be described as a 'cauldron of noise'! It can be quite daunting for the younger children in that sort of atmosphere but the children were sensational - well done LWJ.

Newark and Sherwood District Athletes

Girls win the treble

On the 22nd May, Lowe's Wong Junior School played in the annual Newark and Sherwood Spring Girls' Football Tournament. For the first time in the school's history, LWJ was able to field an A team and a B team to compete for the trophy.

The A-team had already won the Autumn Tournament and the League so were striving to complete the girls football treble for the second season in a row. They got off to a fantastic start by winning their league and qualifying for the semi-final.

The B-team played exceptionally well and against all odds managed to win their league against some formidable opposition setting up a derby tie against Bleasby in the semi-finals.

The A-team squeezed past the excellent Sir Donald Bailey on penalties after some heroics from their goalkeeper in the shootout and in normal time. The B-team fared similarly beating Bleasby on penalties in another tightly contested game. This resulted in a fairy tale final for the Southwell school - LWJ A v LWJ B!

The final was an incredible game of football. It ebbed and flowed and was end to end. Lowe's Wong A managed to get their noses in front with a fine goal from their captain Mia. But Lowe's Wong B managed to draw level with a sublime lob from their captain Alice. The final was to be another shootout. LWJ A just managed to pip LWJ B in the penalty shootout to secure the treble but both teams deserve great credit for their performances and their sportsmanship.

'It was an extremely proud moment as their teacher. The quality of girls football in this district is incredible and all the teams are playing really well. It was a special tournament and the girls reaction and camaraderie was lovely to see' - Art Luetkemeier (A-team coach). 

Year 4s win tournament

On Thursday 2nd May, Lowe's Wong Junior Year 4s were in action at the annual Year 3/4 Football Tournament hosted by William Gladstone.

Fourteen schools were battling it out in two leagues and the standard was incredibly high. Lowe's Wong played some fantastic football in the group stages beating some formidable schools such as Barnby Road Academy and Muskham. They topped the group which meant they qualified for the semi-final against John Blow.

Lowe's Wong played some scintillating football in the semi-final managing to edge past the Collingham school 1-0. This set-up a tantalising final against Coddington who had knocked out the extremely strong Sir Donald Bailey on penalties.

The final was an incredibly tight affair with excellent football played by both sides. A moment of magic from Lowe's Wong's left-winger - Max - was enough to win the tournament for the Southwell school.

Another superb performance from Lowe's Wong Junior meant captain Noah could lift the cup securing their eighth football trophy of the season - well done guys!

2019 - Midlands Schools Regional Champions

On Saturday 30th March, Lowe’s Wong Junior A-team represented Nottinghamshire County at the Midlands Regional Finals at the Riverside Complex, Nottingham. The teams ranged from Herefordshire to Humberside. There were 10 county winners split into two leagues. 1st and 2nd in the group qualified for the semi-finals and the winners went through to the final. The tournament winners and runners-up would go on to represent the Midlands in the National Finals.

Lowe’s Wong played some outstanding football in the group ultimately winning it on goal difference.

In the semi-final, Lowe’s Wong faced Kirk Ella from Humberside and dominated without managing to score the decisive goal. However, in the resulting penalty shootout, the LWJ goalkeeper saved 3 out of 4 penalties in spectacular fashion sending the Nottinghamshire side through.

In the final, Lowe’s Wong played some scintillating football and blew Battling Brook of Leicestershire away. They won the final 5-0 and became Midlands Schools Regional Champions!

Lowe’s Wong will now represent the Midlands at the National Finals provisionally booked in at the home of Birmingham City – St Andrews - on the 4th May.

Mr Luetkemeier – A-team Coach – ‘We are incredibly proud of these boys! They have a superb attitude to football and school. They are supportive of each other both on and off the pitch and their camaraderie is commendable. What a fantastic achievement for these young men!

The standard of football in Newark and Sherwood is superb at the moment and from what I have seen it is consistently one of the strongest districts in Nottinghamshire. We hope to represent the Midlands well and win the National Competition.’

2019 Spring Tournament - winners

Due to the A-Team representing the county in the regional finals on the same day, the B-Team represented Lowe’s Wong Juniors at the Spring Flowserve tournament.

During the tournament in the group stages the B team had six, eight minute matches. All the other teams in our league gave excellent performances and the standard was high. LWJ ended up winning three of games and drawing three, putting them in second place in the league due to goal difference.

The semi-finals consisted of two, six minute halves. During the semi-finals, the team faced the winners from League 1 - Chuter Ede Balderton - for a place in the final. The game was end to end for the whole match with opportunities created by both teams. Lowe’s Wong scored in the 2nd half and managed to hold onto to the lead, resulting in the team reaching the final against Sir Donald Bailey.

The final was a closely fought game with both teams creating opportunities. Lowe’s Wong managed to score in the closing moments of the first half and managed to hold on to their lead despite a brave performance from Sir Donald Bailey.

Lowe’s Wong B team manager - Mr Radford - said, ‘I was extremely proud of all the team. They all played with an excellent attitude and responded well to changes in tactics and positions. It’s fantastic to win but made even more special to do it without conceding a goal and considering it was our B team – I would have been impressed to simply make it through the group stages given the talent of players at the tournament!’

Final medal table


2019 Year 5/6 Indoor Athletics Team

County Champions

The LWJ school team took on the district winners from around Nottinghamshire on Saturday 17th November at Sutton Lawns, Sutton-in-Ashfield.

The standard was extremely high with many of the players at professional academies. LWJ opened with a 1-0 win against Holy Cross from the Kirkby district. A fine headed goal from striker Zac. They then played out a tight 0-0 draw with Arno Vale who were representing the Gedling ward. The third game was dominated by LWJ against Sir Edmund Hillary of Bassetlaw however a solitary goal was the difference between the two teams scored by midfielder Louis. The last game was effectively a final as a win for either team would win the competition. St Edmund Campion of Rushcliffe Borough took the lead with a fortuitous goal that had gone out of play for a corner but spun back off the wheel of the goal and in over the line. Unfortunately, the referees view was blocked but LWJ got on with the game despite the disappointment and battled to half time a goal down. After the break, growing pressure resulted in a free kick from 30 yards out and LWJ captain Leo smashed it into the top left hand corner! 1-1! Both teams had chances to win it and a fine save from LWJ’s goalkeeper Charlie at the death meant the two best teams in the competition would share the spoils. 

The draw secured the County Championship for Lowe’s Wong and they will represent Nottinghamshire in the regional finals in March.

A brilliant performance Lowe’s Wong!

Girls Active Leadership


Through the Youth Sport Trust, Lowe's Wong Junior sent six Year 5 girls to take part in the Girls Active Leadership Training Programme at Joseph Whitaker School. The girls went with the objective of promoting sport back at Lowe's Wong for all girls and helping to make a  brighter future for young people through PE, physical activity and school sport.


Their main objectives were:


  • to take a long term approach to engaging girls in sport
  • to develop self-confidence in PE
  • to make PE and sport relevant to girls' lives
  • to recognise the power of friends to drive progress
  • to develop role models for the future
  • to empower girls to design and deliver PE and sport


The girls had a lot of fun and will now work with the Year 6 Sports Leaders to promote the Girls Active Scheme through all ages at Lowe's Wong Junior - well done girls!




Lowe’s Wong Junior School


Newark and Sherwood District Autumn Tournament - winners

2018-19 Autumn Tournament Winners
On Saturday 20th October, the Lowe's Wong school team entered the 2018 Autumn Tournament at Newark Flowserve.
They were in a classic 'group of death' with all the opponents being formidable footballers. They battled well through the group stage winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 2 finishing runner-up in the group and qualifying for the semi-final. 
In the semi-final, they found top gear and beat Chuter Ede Fernwood - who had topped their league - with a 2-1 win! One of the goals was outstanding as Jamie K went on a mazy run before flicking the ball into the corner with the outside of his right boot - what a goal!
The final was a tough game against Coddington with few chances for either side. After playing out a 0-0, the district champions would be decided on penalties. Some superb spot kicks and great goalkeeping fired Lowe's Wong to victory! The boys will now represent Newark and Sherwood at the County Finals in a few weeks time.



Newark and Sherwood District Girls' Autumn Tournament - winners

2018-19 Girls Autumn Winners
On the 24th October 2018, the girls from Lowe's Wong Junior were aiming to replicate the success of the boys from a few days ago.
They had an incredible group stage: winning 4 and drawing 1 without conceding a single goal. They were through to the semis as group winners!
The semi-final was an incredibly tough game against Sir Donald Bailey of Newark. The Donald Bailey girls were ferocious in the tackle and cleared the ball with some excellent headers. Chances were few and far between and dreaded penalties loomed. Like the boys on Saturday though, the girls showed precision and power and with the athleticism of their goalkeeper - Emily - they progressed to the final.
The final was another frantic game against Farndon who had some extremely talented footballers. Lowe's Wong pressed and pressed and eventually forced a penalty which was fired into the top right hand corner by their captain - Mia! Lowe's Wong were triumphant again!
We are really proud of our footballers and hope to bring the silverware back to the Newark and Sherwood District in both of the Nottinghamshire County Finals - well done Lowe's Wong!

Nottinghamshire County Finals - 3rd place


The Lowe's Wong girls played amazingly against the best teams in Nottinghamshire. Seven district winners battled it out on a bitter November morning in Sutton in Ashfield.

The girls opening match was against Kirkby Woodhouse. They were a strong team with an excellent defence and very talented central midfielder who captained their side. The game could have gone either way but a fantastic solo goal from Kirkby's captain meant the girls had to accept their first loss of the season. The games came thick and fast and Lowe's Wong dominated the second game but just couldn't squeeze in a goal against Giltbrook - final score 0-0. After a two game warm-up, the girls started to play the football that had seen them win 7 league games and the district finals. They beat Berridge from the city 2-0 and then beat previously unbeaten Tollerton 1-0. Another dominant performance against Gedling champions Burton Joyce eventually ended in a 0-0 draw with Lowe's Wong unable to find the net. With Kirkby Woodhouse and Tollerton winning all but one game each, the best the LWJ girls could achieve was 3rd place with a final win against Peafield Lane. They went 1-0 down but stormed back to win it 2-1!

We are so proud of our girls performance. To be the 3rd best team in Nottinghamshire County is incredible - well done girls!

Sports report 2017-18

The Lowe’s Wong sporting calendar has once again been very busy with many different sports. Not only are we proud of the pupils’ ability but also their behaviour and sporting attitude when representing the school.



Year 3/4 tournament – 4th place

The Year 3/4 football team were a credit to the school once again this year with a magnificent effort against Newark and Sherwood’s finest. They were the dominant team in the group stage and won the group where they went on to face Sir Donald Bailey in the semi-final. Despite a large share of the possession and carving out lots of chances, the boys could not put the ball in the back of the net. The game went to dreaded penalties. Unfortunately, Sir Donald Bailey held their nerve and were the successful team in the shootout - well done to them! Barnby Road went on to lift the trophy after a fantastic performance from all the teams involved.

2017-18 Football teams


A and B team league

The school’s A and B Team are predominantly made up of Year 6 pupils however last season the extremely talented Year 5s did more than make up the numbers. Another incredible season has seen the boys win both league titles again – gaining the ‘triple-double’! Both teams won the league as ‘invincibles’: not losing a single game! A 2-2 draw against title rivals Chuter Ede sealed it for Lowe's Wong A and a superb 4-2 win against Chuter Ede B won it for the B-team - outstanding achievement!

Autumn tournament – group stage

Back in October, the team played the Autumn tournament in crisp, sunny conditions. The team was without some key players but still performed brilliantly in the district competition. They didn't quite do enough to qualify from the group but there were some fantastic goals most notably from George - the goalkeeper! Chuter Ede, Balderton went on to lift the trophy!

Spring tournament – third place

Another fantastic effort by the team but it was one of those days where the ball just wouldn’t go in during the semi-final. Building pressure went unrewarded and the team was hit hard in a penalty shoot-out against John Blow. Chuter Ede, Balderton proved again what a great team they are by lifting the trophy!

League Cup – winners

Lowe's Wong lifted the trophy for the first time since 2003. They played incredibly well in all the knockout games and treated the crowd to an awesome high scoring final. Barnby Road was their opponents and they made it an absorbing and exciting game which left the coaches with a few more grey hairs on their heads. Lowe's Wong took the lead 1-0 but Barnby Road equalised with a penalty to make it all square at half-time. Barnby Road then took the lead with a fine strike crashing back off the cross-bar to be calmly slotted in with Lowe's Wong's goalkeeper on the floor. With 10 minutes to go LWJ remained calm and immediately hit back with a well worked equaliser. Then in the dying seconds, Leo drilled a low shot into the bottom left hand corner to win the game 3-2! What a final!

2018 League Cup winners


Girls football – Autumn tournament – winners

The girls were in action again this season with an incredibly strong team. They played extremely well and qualified for the semi-final where they beat Sir Donald Bailey 2-1. In the final, they cruised to victory, beating Chuter Ede, Balderton 5-0 - well done girls! This meant they would represent the Newark and Sherwood District in the County Finals.


Nottinghamshire County Finals - Runners-up


2018-19 Spring Tournament - winners

Once again the girls were outstanding in the Spring Tournament. They qualified from their group and faced Sir Donald Bailey (again) in the semi-final. A close affair had to be decided on penalties where Lowe's Wong were triumphant again. They won the final 3-0 winning their second piece of silverware of the year.

2018-19 Spring Tournament Winners

Girls League 2018-19 - winners

The girls secured a magnificent treble after playing 9 league games, winning 8 and drawing only 1. It is the inaugural girls league and the huge trophy is proudly sat in the Lowe's Wong trophy cabinet - what a season!



Lowe’s Wong has seen fantastic representation in the county cross-country again this year. Many hardy pupils braved the wind and rain to run for the school, performing well as individuals and in the team events. Many thanks go to Miss Ford for coaching the team, particularly the morning training sessions on ‘la Sierra Lowe’s Wong’ – it’s a good run up those hills!


Year 5/6 Athletics - Gold

The school’s excellent reputation for athletics was further enhanced with a 1st place finish in the Newark and Sherwood Indoor Athletics competition. They won every race they entered and won the competition. The children represented Newark and Sherwood at the Nottinghamshire Finals where they finished 5th.

2018-19 District Champions

Year 3/4 Athletics - silver

2018-19 Year 3/4 Athletics

The Year 3/4s were sensational in the Indoor Athletics dominating on the track. They were 'pipped' in the field events but once again they represented the school admirably.


2018 Summer Athletics at Magnus Academy

At Newark Sports, the children won a huge number of medals. They seemed to be on the podium at every possible opportunity. Over 35 medals in total - most of them gold!

2018 Newark Sports



The school swimming team has been in fine form again this season. They won the family meeting and went on to represent Newark and Sherwood in the Nottinghamshire competition! A big thank you to Mr Follen who has coached the swimming team again this year!


High 5

Miss Higgins has coached the High 5 team this year and the strength in depth is really starting to come through. The children who have represented the school are starting to recognise the quality of opponent and are competing with them in every department. Fair play and determination has been a real factor in the High 5 squad this year.



Some excellent performances from the Year 5 and 6’s at the hockey events this year. Some great performances from many children in some difficult conditions. Thanks again to Mr Follen for giving up his time despite having such a busy schedule!
