Sports Update

Dilkes Academy Autumn sports report 21_22


Year 5/6 Football Thurrock SSP events

Both the boys & girls team represented the school in a new season of sports events organised by Thurrock SSP, playing for the first time in a long time against other primary schools in Thurrock.

The Girls performed admirably in the first event of the season, claiming third place in an exciting competition, where all the girls played so well together.

Squad: Daisy, Lillianna, Ella, Fatima, Olivia, Jayla, Pixie, Emma & Lory

The Boys matched the girls hard work and excellent teamwork, but just failed to get through to the knockout stages of the competition but showed enough as a team for a promising season ahead.

Thanks from the PE team, have a lovely Xmas

Race For Life


A huge well done to all children and staff who took part in the Race for Life on Friday. It was incredible to see all the children running, walking, skipping, jumping and hopping their way around the Muga Pitch. Every child persevered to complete as many laps as they could in their allocated time slot. It was so heart warming to see and read all the dedications for the children's reasons to run.

Thank you to all parents, carers, family members, friends and staff who supported this event, we have currently raised an amazing £1671 which includes the online donations and sale of the Cancer Research Merchandise.

Sports Day

Dilkes Academy Sportsweek


Congratulations to all our pupils who completed in Sportsday in the hot conditions at the start of the week, you all gave your best, to be the best you can be.


Quadkids is the 4 Athletic events discipline which includes a sprint, standing long jump, howler throw and the Endurance run. We noted some outstanding performances across the years and could see how all of your hard work, courage & determination in PE lessons paid off during sportsday.


Well done to all our medal winners from each class and to all our pupils for being active and involved and of course not forgetting the class dance at the end, which was a great way to have fun and to celebrate together. Congratulations also to the House winners on sportsweek which was Maro Itoje (Red).
