Hockey Quicksticks

Congratulations to our hockey team who won the Quicksticks tournament at Surbiton Hockey Club this week. They played   brilliantly, winning their group to reach a very tense semi-final,   in which they scored in the last minute of the game. The final was an end-to-end game, with both teams desperate to score and take the gold. The final whistle went with a 0-0 draw, and both teams securing places in the County Final.
Well done team!

19th March 2016 Cross-Country

TDJS crowned Esher District Cross Country champions!

Last Saturday we took a team of runners from Year 3 to Year 6 to the Esher District cross country championships. 13 schools from across the borough entered teams and there were up to 80 runners in each race. The weather was pretty perfect for the event, although a little chilly for the spectators!

All of our children competed extremely well. They showed great grit and determination in each race, individually pushing themselves to the limit. I honestly don’t believe any child could have given any more. Not only were the children great sporting ambassadors, their personal conduct was exemplary. It was an honour for Miss Hodkinson and I to be there with this group of children. For this they need to be commended. 

There were some exceptional individual performances;

Year 4; Jasmine Wilkinson 2nd  Darcey Mitchell 7th , Teddy Belton 5th  and Danny McDonagh 9th place

Year 5; Poppy Mitchell 1st place, Kiera Koehne-Mitchell 8th and Sam Atkins 3rd place

Year 6;  Angelina Campbell 7th place, Joe Wilson 3rd place and Ajay Welsh 8th place.


As a result of each child’s efforts TDJS were crowned District champions. We were delighted with result and very proud of every competitor’s efforts.

Whilst the school were taking part in this event, a Year 6 pupil, Cerys Howells won Bronze in at the British Schools Biathlon Championships. I know she is delighted with the result but as a school, it is wonderful to hear of our pupils achievements outside of school. We were devastated that she couldn’t represent us at the District cross-country event but clearly she is very talented and this amazing result speaks for itself. Congratulations Cerys…….Olympics 2024?

Now we start training for the District track and field events!!!!!           Miss Riley.


18th March 2016
Our netball A team played in the Surrey schools tournament recently alongside 12 other teams and beat all their opponents to  bag a place in the final. It went to extra time - and a last minute goal from Claygate meant we had to accept 2nd place.

The B team also played today and won 3 matches and lost 2. TDJS showed    superb sportsmanship and we were very proud of all the children who took part.

28th January 2016 - Our girls' football team competed in the Surrey Primary Schools' Tournament having qualified from the Elmbridge competition a couple of weeks ago.  All the teams competing had won or finished second in their local tournaments so all teams played at a high standard.  We played four games in the initial group stage: 

TDJS 1 Kingscroft 0
TDJS 5 St Joseph's 0
TDJS 0 Ravenscote 2
TDJS 4 Knaphill 0


These results meant we qualified for the semi-finals, where we were beaten 4-0 by the eventual winners Bishop Gilpin.  We then lost the 3rd/4th play-off match 2-1, but it was still a tremendous performance to finish 4th out the 300 primary schools in Surrey.

Well done to our squad: Ella Kirkpatrick, Ella Bradshaw, Jaimee Burrage, Jemima Craig, Faith Headland, Cerys Howells, Dhunia Raouf, Lucy Stead and Maddie Wills.



25th January 2016 - Congratulations to our Netball teams, who took part in exciting and tense matches against Claygate Primary today.  The A team won 5-4 and the B team won 5-3.  Well done to both teams.



12th January 2016 - Our girls' football team took part in a tournament at Elmbridge Excel Centre against other local teams with the following results:  TDJS 1 - Esher Church A 0,  TDJS 2 - Esher Church B 0,  TDJS 4 - Hurst Park 0, TDJS 0 - Hinchley Wood 0, TDJS 2  Claygate B 0, TDJS 0 - Claygate A 0.  

By winning four matches and drawing two others, we reached the play-off final where we played Claygate A.  The result was again 0-0 meaning that the competition would be decided on penalties.  However, like the English football team, this was to be our downfall and we were beaten 4-3.  Our team will still be progressing to the Surrey Finals though!  Well done to Ella K, Ella C, Jaimee B, Cerys H, Dhuia R, Maddie W, Lucy S, Jemima C and Faith H.
