In Physical Education

Congratulations to our U13 football squad who have won the North Northumberland League.  A fantastic achievement for our small school.  The team were unbeaten in both the league and friendly games scoring an amazing 47 goals and conceding 17.

For the second year running our Year 6 & 7 indoor athletics teams won the North Northumberland Competition and went on to the Northumberland School Games Finals where the Year 6 team and the Year 7 boys team came fourth and the Year 7 girls team won the bronze medal.

We entered 5 teams in the North Northumberland Volleyball competition at the Swan Centre in Berwick.  In the boys competition one of our teams came first and qualified to represent North Northumberland in the School Games Finals in June.  Unfortunately this clashes with the Year 7/8 visit to London so they are unable to compete.  However this is the second year in a row we have won this competition.

The Year 8 six-a-side football team also won the North Northumberland competition, which was held at Tweedmouth Middle School in March.  Last year the team had won the competition as Year 7s on goal difference, but this year they went one better, winning the competition on points.

As well as all the competitions mentioned previously we have also entered netball, indoor cricket and handball competitions and our U11 football team came fourth in the North Northumberland League.

I would like to thank David Wright and Mark Hall who have helped with football teams this season and Rachel Convery who has coached our netball teams.

One of the most popular clubs this year has been the gymnastics club run by Gym Coach Sam Dronsfield.  More than 20 girls have attended regularly thanks to Sam’s excellent coaching and enthusiasm they have made excellent progress.

We are looking forward to taking part in a number of summer sports this term including athletics, cricket, rounders and tennis so please encourage your child to get involved.
