School Sport

Our girls football team progressed to the Semi Final of the Wix Cup after a 7-0 victory against Wymondley school on the first Wednesday back after half term. We now face Whitehill at home on Wednesday 27th November for a place in the Final.

Our A football team matched the girls achievement by beating Whitehill 5-1 last night (Thursday 14th) and now play Our Lady school in their semi final with the date to be confirmed.

They also continued their winning run in the league with a 10-0 victory against Oughton on Monday.

Our Netball teams have showed some real determination and resilience in their recent fixtures. The A team lost matches against William Ransom 10-3 and Whitehill 12-1 in the league in some tough matches. However, the way they are playing continues to improve and I was really proud of them for not giving up and trying to do things properly.

The B team won 5-2 against William Ransom in their most recent game and played some fantastic netball along the way.

Well done to everyone who has represented the school in the past few weeks, you have shown excellent skill, knowledge, understanding and a willingness to improve and do your best.
