Roaming Rob comes to Kilburn

Today we welcomed Rob Johnson AKA Roaming Rob to Kilburn Junior School. The children in the Lower School were enthralled at the demonstration of his metal detector and were delighted to get their hands on historical artefacts dating back to Roman Britain. 

We’d like to thank Rob for helping to bring history to life this morning and for his kind donation of historic coins to our school. 


Year 3/4 DCLFC Football Tournament

This week our year 3/4 girl’s football team attended an all day competition held at the Power League Soccer Dome in Derby.

The tournament was hosted by the Derby County Ladies Football Club and consisted of 16 teams from across Derbyshire. The matches were played six-a-side and for 10 minutes per game.

Our team played some outstanding football scoring a staggering 27 goals and only conceding 3 over all of their 7 games. This meant our team finished the highest goal scorers in the entire tournament and 2nd place overall.


Huge congratulations to our team, especially the  three children who made their Kilburn Sporting debuts.

Also a huge thank you to the Amber Valley Sports Partnership, who kindly transported us to and from the event in their new mini bus!
