Achievements and Results
At Old Sodbury we see it as important to celebrate the sporting success of children both inside and outside of school. If your child achieves a sporting award/certificate or took part in sporting events outside of school, please share them with us so that their successes can be celebrated on our school sports achievement board.

The first football match for the boys this year was down at Sugar Acres playing field.
