In October 2015, a team of Year 6 pupils from New Mills Primary won their way through to the area Partnership finals for Netball. The partnership final was held at Chapel High school on the 19th April 2016. Mrs Fisher took a squad of seven children (Sam Bennett, Suzi Edwards, Alex Green, Alex Ignotus, Skye Collier, Lucy Jennings and Mia Higginbotham). The team played four matches against some very good teams from Harpur Hill, Hayfield, Padfield and Buxworth. The standard of the competition was very high and in the end New Mills was genuinely outclassed, losing three games and drawing one. The team did however improve in every game they played and came away with an understanding of what skills they need to improve on. It was great to compete with the best teams in the area. Harpur Hill won the tournament and will represent the High Peak in the County finals.
