Basketball Essex Finals - 2018
There were 13 teams from all over the county, who had won their regional tournament at the Essex finals at Harlow Leisure Zone. Everyone was really excited to be there and ready to play lots of basketball. The teams were put into 3 groups.
We won our first 2 matches and drew our 3rd. Wentworth played extremely well and did our school proud.
After lunch we found out the results, we won our group!! Totally amazing, especially as this was the first year Wentworth have got through to the ‘super eight’.
The super eight were split into 2 groups for the quarter finals. Unfortunately Wentworth lost their 3 matches, but they really did try their best till the last whistle.
Overall results; Wentworth are the 7th best basketball team in Essex. Out of over 200 school I think you’d agree they did amazingly.

Basketball tournament - 12th October, 2017
On Thursday , 12th October Wentworth took two Basketball teams to the local Basketball Tournament. Both teams excelled themselves and played extremely well.
The Purple Team won all of their matches until they played Wentworth White!
The White Team drew a match, lost a match and won two matches!
At one point we thought the white team would win the tournament, but unfortunately they didn’t win their last game. The end result being extremely close between the top two schools, finishing with the same amount of points. Fortunately for Wentworth, the positions were decided by goal difference. Wentworth had a massive 34 points more than Great Totham.
Wentworth Whites – 3rd Place
Wentworth Purple – 1st Place
Basketball - Essex Games
Last year Wentworth Primary School won the local Basketball tournament, because of this they went through to the Essex Games, held at Essex University. Another amazing achievement for Wentworth Primary school and every pupil involved.
On the 20th January 2017, ten pupils and I made our way to Colchester. We got there early and everyone was very excited to be there. Wentworth were on court 1 and played three matches against; Lee Chapel, Bournemouth Park and Bishops. Wentworth played extremely well and actually came joint 2nd on points, so they had to look at goal difference, which was also a tie! The decision still needed to be made and unfortunately it was decided Bishops would go through, as they had beaten Wentworth in the match they played against each other.
Wentworth took on the next 5 matches with enthusiasm and determination, winning 4 and drawing 1. Therefore, Wentworth came top of the group which places them 9th in Essex. CONGRATULATIONS!!
