Sporting Achievements

Well done to our various teams at the end of a very busy season.

Football

Our U11 girls’ team finished with a fantastic 100% record having won all of their league games and the Sports Partnership event. They will next be playing in the Summer Games on 27th June, representing our Area against the best in the county.

Our U11 boys’ team also played some exceptional football, with only 1 defeat in the league and also getting to the County Cup semi-final. This is even more remarkable considering most of the team are in Year 5. Good luck next year!

The U11 B-team had some very difficult fixtures playing mainly against school A-teams but again as most were in Year 5 it looks very promising for next year.

The U13 girls’ team are still in action through into next term and have definitely improved as the season has gone on, playing some impressive football and demonstrating a great attitude.

The U13 boys’ team have also improved hugely as the season progressed finishing with a convincing 4-0 home win against Ponteland and finishing 3rd in the league.

Rugby

The season is still going, and we’d like to say that we have been massively impressed by all our KS3 teams this year. The girls have improved so much from last year’s introduction to contact and the boys finished the term with impressive performances in the County 7s event. The boys will finish the season with another 7s event on 9th May and the girls will finish on the beach!

House rugby – the fantastic attitude and commitment was also demonstrated in the house rugby competition this term. Particular note goes to the quality of the Year 5 and Year 7 teams and the high intensity of the Year 8.

Well done to Howard for winning this event. The overall positions are now:

1st – Dacre; 2nd – Howard; 3rd – Mitford; 4th – Collingwood.

Netball

Year 7 and 8 girls have performed well this season with a 3rd place finish in the league. Miss Simpson has been very impressed with the girls’ attitude and resilience demonstrated all season.

Year 5 have shown a fantastic commitment to training this year and performed well in a difficult Sports Partnership tournament against teams from Year 6. Many thanks go to the Year 7 girls who turned up each week to help train them.

Sports leaders

Well done to our Sports leaders who were trained and then led a Tri-Golf tournament to our Feeder School pupils. Once again their attitude and leadership skills were of a fantastic quality throughout. Next term they will be doing a tennis event.

We’d also like to say well done to our Year 8 boys’ basketball team and Year 7/8 girls’ cricket teams, who took part in Area events this term. Particular note goes to the Year 7 girls who turned up in such amazing numbers for the cricket training, we were invited to attend a bonus tournament to give everyone a chance to play.
