Durley 1




Fair Oak 1


Durley 2



This means that Fair Oak 2 will progress to play in the next round of competition against the other best teams from the Hamble area. These teams will all be playing for the prize of competing in the County Finals at the School Games later on in the year. Well done to all of our magnificent netballers!


Thursday 7th March

One of our best cross country runners had previously negotiated her way through two gruelling qualifying competitions to make it to the Cross Country Championship finals race which was held today at Down Grange in Basingstoke. She was up against well over one hundred of the very best runners in Hampshire and so her finishing position of 59th was a really fantastic achievement. What a brilliant effort!


Tuesday 12th March

Fair Oak entered seven teams into a tag rugby tournament held on the Fair Oak Junior School field. The event went ahead despite awful weather conditions but was shortened as a result of the cold and wet! Great credit must go to all of the players who participated. The competition took a league format where every team played every other team. The side with the most points at the end of the tournament would be crowned champions and would take The Mike Warrior Cup! After all of the fixtures had been played, the final league table stood as follows:



Points Total

Fair Oak 1


Fair Oak 2

Fair Oak 4


Fair Oak 5


Fair Oak 7



Well done to all of our fantastic tag rugby players. There really were some outstanding performances today!


Friday 15th March

Our boys football team travelled to Bitterne Park Primary School to play a friendly match in preparation for the Hampshire Cup semi-final next week. Fair Oak took the lead early on with a well struck shot but the hosts equalised before half time. Despite second half pressure from Fair Oak, our boys just could not find the winner and the final score therefore stood at one goal a piece. Well done to all of those who took part.


Tuesday 19th March

An inexperienced Fair Oak girls football team entered a competition today between schools from the Hamble area. Only two sides would make it through to the School Games County Finals in June. The competition took a league format where every side played every other side. The two teams with the most points at the end would qualify for the finals day. Our girls put in some fantastic performances throughout the event, with notable draws against both Wickham and hosts Berrywood. However, after all of the fixtures had been played, our team finished in fifth place overall and missed out on qualification for the finals event. All of our players should feel extremely proud of themselves for the determination and team spirit they showed throughout. Well done girls!


Friday 22nd March

Today our lower school swimming team travelled to Bishops Waltham to take part in a swimming gala. The competition was comprised of a variety of different races including both individual and relay events with points being awarded to teams depending on where they finished in each race. Our team performed superbly and really enjoyed the event. By the end of the gala, the final standings were as follows:


1st Bishop’s Waltham

2nd Durley

3rd Botley

4th Fair Oak

5th Freegrounds

6th St Johns

7th Upham


Well done to our fantastic lower school swimming team!


The boys football team played their Hampshire Cup semi-final away to Kings Worthy today and came away with a deserved place in the final. Despite the match ending goalless, Fair Oak had created numerous chances throughout normal time but could not take any of them! This pattern of play continued in extra time and so the game went to penalties. Fair Oak held their nerve as they have done throughout this season to win the shoot out three two. Well done to the team. County finals do not come along often so let hope the boys seize their opportunity to make Fair Oak history in the final!


Monday 25th March

Durley visited Fair Oak today to play a friendly tag rugby match. The fixture gave our year five players some useful game time against year six opponents in preparation for upcoming fixtures. At the final whistle, Fair Oak won by fifteen tries to eleven. Well done to the team for a superb performance.  


Tuesday 26th March

Fleming Park was the venue for the indoor athletics country finals that our year five and six athletes had previously qualified for. Competitors scored points depending on how well they did in their track and field events and these points were collated to give an overall team total. The boys and girls points were then added together to give a school total. When our athletes had finished their events and the calculating was completed, Fair Oak ended up in sixteenth place with 439 points. What a great effort from all of our athletes.


Berywood school hosted the Hamble area boys football finals today. The competition was played between all of the top two teams from each of the cluster schools in the Hamble area, so the standard of football was very high indeed. Both our A and B teams had qualified for the event which took a league format where every team played every other team with all points amassed being totalled up at the end to decide final standings. Our B team battled hard throughout, picking up notable draws with Swanmore B and our own A team! Fair Oak A picked up wins against Swanmore A and B, Netley Abbey and Berrywood and draws with Fair Oak B and Botley. These results meant that Fair Oak A won the competition and are crowned Hamble area Champions! Well done to both our A and B teams who played superbly throughout!


Wednesday 27th March

Our year four and five cross country runners were entered into a cross country race held at The Gregg School in Southampton. The standard of competition was extremely high and all of our athletes performed brilliantly. Our Year 4 girls team finished in fourth place overall while our Year 4 boys finished third. Both our Year 5 girls and boys teams finished in second place in their respective races. Well done to all of our athletes. What a lot of cross country talent we have in our school!


Thursday 28th March

Fair Oak entered two teams into a hockey County Finals qualifying tournament today held at Hamble College between local schools. Fair Oak A drew with Botley, Freegrounds A and Freegrounds B. They put in great performances to beat both Hamble B and Netley but unfortunately slipped to defeats against Berrywood, Hamble A and Fair Oak B. These results put them in a respectable sixth position overall. Fair Oak B drew with Hamble B in their opening fixture and lost a close match to Botley but beat their other five opponents. This put them level on points with Berrywood at the top of the league table but it was Fair Oak who had the better goal difference and so were crowned Hamble Champions and will therefore be playing in the County Finals in June! Well done to both of our teams for some fantastic performances throughout the competition.


Saturday 30th March

Our boys football team played their English Schools Football Association South West Finals tournament as Hampshire’s representative school today. Fair Oak began their campaign against Wiltshire but despite having very much the better of the game, our boys could not find the break through and so the game ended nil nil. Next up were Somerset and Fair Oak picked up their first win by a goal to nil. Another nil nil draw followed, this time with the Channel Islands which left Fair Oak needing a win in their final group stage match against Devon. The boys duly obliged, putting in a super display, winning by four goals to one which meant that they topped the group on goals scored ahead of the Channel Islands. Berkshire were our semi final opponents and our team put in another brilliant display to win by two goals to nil. As both finalists would qualify for the National Finals in Birmingham later in the academic year, this semi final result meant that Fair Oak were through to this next stage no matter the result of the final. Dorset were our final opponents and in a tight game of few chances it was our opponents who took one to win the match by a goal to nil. What an amazing achievement. Well done boys. We are all really looking forward to the Nationals!
