Quadkids is a Lionel favourite and it is made up of 4 events which each team member must complete. The 4 events are a long jump, vortex throw, 75m sprint and the 600m run.

I am pleased to announce we did qualify and will now train hard in preparation for the finals later this month.

Well done!

Thursday 20th April - Borough Gymnastics Competition

Yesterday 4 children from year 3 and 4 represented Lionel in the Hounslow Borough Gymnastics Competition at Heathrow Gymnastics Club. It was amazing for our children to perform on a sprung floor and see all the professional equipment.

Each team member completed the vault, beam and a floor routine and were judged by club members. The standard on show was amazing as ever and our team battled through their nerves and represented us perfectly.

We finished in 2nd place and this is a great start to the Summer Term.

Well done team!

Borough Netball Competition

On Tuesday 7th March our Netball team took part in the Hounslow Borough Netball Competition at Heathland Secondary School, despite the freezing conditions our team performed very well.

To qualify out of the group you needed to finish in the top 2 out of 5 schools. We started very well with a couple of convincing wins and went through the group unbeaten. In the 1/4 final we played Southfield and beat them 2-1. We were now in the semi- final with only the best 4 teams left. We unfortunately lost to the eventual winners Fairholme, who we have to credit, as they were fantastic.

It was yet another strong performance from Team Lionel and we look forward to the Tag Rugby competition in a few weeks time.

Sportshall Athletics Borough Final

 On the 26th January we competed in the borough Sportshall Athletics Final at Osterley Sports Centre. It was between the top 15 schools in Hounslow so as you can imagine the standard on show was fantastic.

We had prepared well for the event with lots of lunchtime training. Our squad of 23 represented us perfectly on and off the track. The competition was made up of 12 relay races and 6 different field events. Each team member could do up to 4 events. The Sportshall was loud and hot but our athletes stayed focused.

We finished 3rd for the second year running and we are incredibly proud of our team. 

Lionel Girls Football Team - Hounslow Borough Competition

On Wednesday, 7 Year 5 and 6 pupils from Lionel took part in the Hounslow Borough Girls Football Competition. There were over 200 girls participating in the competition making it one of the largest competitions of the year!

Our team were absolutely brilliant. We won 2 games, drew 1 and lost narrowly to 2 equally brilliant teams. The girls never gave up and played with smiles on their faces all day (even though the weather was a tad nippy).

I was super proud of them all and I really hope they are pleased with themselves as well!

Cross Country Competition

On Wednesday 9th November we took part in the Borough Cross Country Competition in Osterley Park.

We were very lucky with the weather on the day but the ground was incredible wet and slippery which meant for a tough race.

There were 478 children taking part. We had 4 teams in total, a lower junior team made up of 6 athletes and an upper junior team also made up of 6 athletes. The lower juniors completed 1000m and the older children completed 1600m.

It was great to see so many children all taking part in such a tough event and we were pleased with our final standings.

  • Year 3 and 4 girls finished 2nd out of 15 teams.
  • Year 3 and 4 boys finished 7th out of 18 teams.
  • Year 5 and 6 girls finished 4th out of 38 teams.
  • Year 5 and 6 boys finished 14th out of 56 teams.

Well done Lionel!

Show Racism the Red Card


The annual show racism the red card event took place yesterday at the Brentford community Stadium. We took 9 children from year 6 who had a brilliant experience whilst learning all about discrimination and stereotypes.

Our children were fully engaged during the workshops tackling a tough topic.

The children were also able to ask questions to the panel regarding discrimination and how they would handle the situation which included Deji Davies (Brentford FC board) Eni Aluko (former England player) and Marcus Gayle (former Brentford player)

The children also went on an all-access tour of the stadium including the press box, tunnel and the changing rooms. I hope this inspired the children to push themselves in sport and to have an open mind whilst treating people how they would like to be treated.

Please visit the school’s website where you will find pictures from the day.

Year 1 Multi Skill Festival

On Wednesday more than 250 year 1 children packed in to the sports hall at Osterley Sports Centre to take part in the year 1 multi skills festival.

Our team of 10 worked round 12 different stations completing different activities. The activities included a penalty shot, throwing and catching, running races and lots more. The aim was to give our young children an experience of competitive school sport and to build our team work skills, It’s fair to say we worked very well together whilst having a great time.

Well done everyone!

                        Cross Country Relay

We took part in our first competition of the school year on Monday as we took 12 children from year 5 and 6 to take part in the Cross Country relay competition at Heathland Secondary School.

The format was simple, each race had either 3 boys or 3 girls and the run was either 300m each or 600m each in a relay format. There were 26 teams taking part and the standard was very high.


Girls 600m relay- 1st

Boys 600m relay- 3rd

Girls 300m relay- 2nd

Boys 300m relay- 4th

After the relays every child competed in a 1200m individual run in a more conventional race. Each race had around 80 children running. After giving so much in the relays I was really proud of our children’s effort. In the boys race we had 2 finishers in the top 10. The girls were awesome as we have 3 girls finish inside the top 8.

Well done team Lionel!

Sports Competition

 After breezing through qualifying, we took our team to compete in the year 5/6 Quadkids Athletics final at Osterley Sports Centre on Wednesday.

It was a sweltering day but that didn’t stop our athletes performing brilliantly. Each child had to do all 4 events which are a vortex throw, long jump, 75m spring and a 600m run. We started well with the boy’s vortex and the girls had the sprint up first. All of our team jumped solidly but our 600m runners were superb. Evie in Maple class and Riley in Ash won their race but we had multiple other high finishes.

We now wait for the results and I will update you on our final position.

Well done team Lionel

Cricket Competition 

 Last Friday it was the turn of our cricketers to compete in the qualifying competition which was held at Chiswick school. It is fair to say that the uneven wicket made for interesting viewing. I was pleased with our team for playing aggressive cricket and trying to take opportunities. 

We won 3 matches and lost the other but with our impressive run rate we finished in 1st place. We now look forward to the Borough Finals on Monday. Well done to all involved.

Tennis Festival - Wednesday 25th May 2022

On Wednesday, we took 10 children from years 3 and 4 to compete in the borough tennis festival at Dukes Meadows. It’s the largest event of its kind in the South East with 460 children and 628 matches being played.

Our children behaved and performed excellently. As a team we won 21 matches drew 1 and lost only 3. I’m sure you will agree that this is a fantastic performance. It was incredibly hectic and our children represented us perfectly.

Tag Rugby Borough Champions

Year 3 and 4 Football Tournament

Last Thursday we took 7 children to compete in the year 3/4 borough football tournament which was held at the Brentford Sports Hub. 29 teams took part in the competition and it was a great experience for our team.

The top 2 qualified from each group in to the knock out stages, we played superbly winning every group match without conceding a goal. The children were buzzing to be in the final 8. We won both the quarter and semi-final. In the final it was a very tight match, the skill and perseverance from our boys was amazing. We were incredibly unfortunate to lose the final 1-0. It was a great day for all involved and we are all very proud of the teams efforts.


Congratulations boys! 

Mr Parker

Junior Football Competition

This week our junior football team have been in action competing with 20 teams in the Hounslow Borough Football Tournament held at Gunnersbury Sports Hub.  The team were amazing getting through each stage to reach the final.  The final was a tight match against St Michael and St Martin. The game ended 0-0 and went to penalties where we were sadly beaten.


Achieving a final place means the team will now represent Hounslow in the West London Finals later on this year.  Thank you to Mr Parker and congratulations to the whole team.

Year 5 and 6 Hounslow Borough Athletics Competition  

On Monday, 20 pupils from Year 5 and 6 represented the school at the Hounslow Borough Sportshall Athletics Competition. There were 12 events for pupils to compete in giving them the opportunity to show off their jumping, throwing and running skills.


Our pupils performed to a very high standard and finished the competition in 3rd place out of 12 of the best schools in the Borough.


We were delighted with the children: they worked so hard during the event and cheered each other on like no other team there. They also showed tremendous dedication before the competition in turning up to school at 8am to train. Their hard work paid off!


Well done to all of the pupils. It was a brilliant day and has set us up nicely for a term jam-packed with sporting action for Lionel pupils!
