Physical Education

A full competitive football season has been completed with all years playing in district league and cup competitions. It has still not been confirmed but the year nine team has possibly won the league.

Cross-country was very successful this year with an increase in the number of pupils taking part and several students being selected for the district team. Andrew Marsden won the district individual title for the under 16’s and was selected for the All England Finals. The Y10 boys showed great commitment over the five races and came second place in the district.

Extra-curricular practices have taken place for girl’s football, badminton and netball.

At present there are practices in athletics for both boys and girls at KS3 and cricket practice for Y7/8 girls and boys in Y7/8/9. The year 9 boys have been entered into the county cricket cup. A district tournament has also been proposed in which we will enter a Y7/8 and a Y9 team, friendly matches will also be played later in the term.

Years 7/8/9 boys and girls are currently taking part in a football coaching course led by Crewe Alexander coaches.

Break Dance classes have started on a Wednesday lunchtime which has proven to be very popular with boys and girls at KS3.
