Soccer Success in English Schools’ Comp

Sports News

Congratulations go to our Year 11 and Year 7 boys’ football teams who this week saw off the competition from a local Bury school and a Manchester grammar school.

In the first round of the English Schools’ Competition, our year 11 squad comfortably beat St Monica’s RC High School 5 goals to 2; and a team of Year 7s from William Hulme Grammar ended up conceding the match following a relentless onslaught from our boys in red and black.

There were goals a-plenty too during a Year 7 friendly against Elton High School, which ended in a closely fought 3 – 3 draw.

A massive well done to all our footy teams for their efforts this week!

Stormy Weather Fails to Dampen Spirits

Stormy Weather Fails to Dampen Spirits

Duke of Edinburgh

Our school’s Duke of Edinburgh organiser, Mr Cudworth would like to congratulate our year 11 students on one unbelievably difficult training DofE experience at the weekend – the last three days have seen some very challenging weather conditions, rain & wind, wind chill, etc.

Unfortunately, some of the planned routes had to be changed due to dangerous wind speeds, but everyone involved did exceptionally well. In addition to taking on some impressive navigation and well-executed decision making, the students’ unrelenting dedication to helping each other through the difficulties has made Mr Cudworth along with all our staff, so very proud and impressed with all of them. These students are an asset to the school at the highest level.

A full blow by blow account of the training weekend is to follow very soon, along with a selection of photos.

Our Year 10 and Year 11 girls football team had a clean sheet against other Bury schools with some great saves by Georgia Hodson and Zoe Parker, and solid defending by Caitlin Brown, Ruby Pilkington, Ellie Stokes and Liana Mae Cass. They beat Castlebrook 5-0, St Gabriel’s 1-0 with some class goals from Beth Schofield and Chloe Chapman, and had 0-0 draws with Woodhey and Bury Church. 1st place was awarded to Tottington over Bury Church due to goal difference (1 goal in it!)
Fantastic performance by Mrs Carter’s dream team!

The trip features an action-packed itinerary of adventure activities but it’s not only about having fun. While they are enjoying themselves, students will be learning new skills, rising to new challenges and developing their confidence. The trip will be a great reward for a successful transition to Tottington High and enable the students to develop new skills as they get ready for Year 8. We have chosen to book with PGL because not only do they offer excellent value but they also have a reassuring 50 years of experience organising trips for schools. Their extremely high standards mean that students will be in safe hands at all times. Visit PGL‘s website www.pgl.co.uk to find out more about the company and the location we will be visiting.

The cost includes:

  • Return coach travel from school
  • A full daily programme of adventure activities
  • Fun evening entertainment
  • All meals and accommodation
  • Full comprehensive travel insurance (details available on request)

There are no extras, however if you wish, you can provide a small amount of pocket money for your child to spend in the gift shop.

What do I need to do next?
If you would like your child to go on the trip, please place your completed reply slip into an envelope, labelled Year 7 PGL ACTIVITY TRIP, also enclose your monies/cheque for the deposit of £70 by Thursday 18th October. Please note our easier and preferred payment option is to pay on line (details on the reply slip). Further payments will be required as set out below.

Finally

Yours sincerely

Mr A Ishtiaq
