High-5 Netball Tournament: 28th November 2019

A group of children who attend the Netball after-school club represented the school at their first competition.  Having only learned

the rules a couple of weeks before the competition, the team improved with every match they played.  Each and every member played

their part, ensuring that they utilised the skills they'd been taught in training.   Their behaviour and sportsmanship was excellent and the

whole team was a credit to the school.  Thank you to the Palmer Catholic Academy for their continued support in providing transport to

and from the event.


Football Tournament: 13th November 2019

Our football team took part in a 7-a-side tournament involving 22 schools in the Borough.  This was the first time our team had played in

competitive matches and they certainly made Mrs Woodhouse and Mrs Sutton proud.  Their discipline and behaviour throughout the day

was outstanding and their performance improved with every match played.  Although they came third in their group, meaning they did

not progress to the play-offs, the team made it clear that they had enjoyed every moment of the day.


Panathlon Ten Pin Bowling Tournament: 17th October 2019

The Panathlon Foundation is a sports charity that enables children with disabilities in England to have competitive sporting opportunities.

We were very lucky to secure a place for some of our children with Special Educational Needs to take part in a ten pin bowling event, held

at City Limits in Collier Row.  The children had great fun, participating in a number of games and all winning a medal which they wore

proudly on their return to school.
