Parent News

Some of our finest athletes triumphed yesterday at the Bury Schools Championships at Bury Athletics Club. Ellie M (pictured) reigned supreme as the champion of the Year 8 and 9 girls’ shot put, and was narrowly beaten to 2nd place in the discus (beaten by only 7cm!).

They had a great day at the athletics championships and, according to PE teacher Mrs Z Carter, were fabulous and a credit to the school. Other results were as follows:

Abigail B – champion of y10 & 11 100m
Chloe B – 2nd place in y10 & 11 girls’ discus
Olivia T -3rd in year 8 & 9 girls’ javelin
Both y10 & y11 girls and y8 & y9 boys got through their heats into the 4x100m relay finals (y8 & y9 boys broke a track record in their heat)
Y10 & y11 girls got the bronze in their final, boys came 4th
Ryan W got an amazing personal best of 2.21 mins in 800m

U16 Girls Basketball are Regional Runners-up

U16 Girls Basketball are Regional Runners-up

Sports News

The girls beat Manchester 20-29 in their first game, with Katie Shimmons, Zoe Parker and Megan Stokes running the game and leading the scoring. Some tough defence and strong rebounds from Ruby, Beth, Chloe, Sam, Jess, Isobel and Georgia ensured the opponents score was kept to a minimum.

This lead the girls to the final against Stockport – where the winner would be named as regional champions. Trinity who were representing Stockport were a strong team with a bench full of scoring threats. Tottington struggled to stop them from scoring in the first quarter and they ran some good fast breaks resulting in Tottington being 15 points down at half time. The girls continued to play strong defence and with some great baskets from Zoe and Katie, the scoring gap closed. However, Trinity stepped it up a gear in the final quarter, and Tottington looked tired – and the game finished 42-23, with Tottington gaining the ‘Regional Runners Up’ title.

Massively proud of the girls for their fantastic performance.

Mrs Z Carter, PE Teacher

The U16 Girls Team were:
Zoe Parker
Katie Shimmons
Megan Stokes
Ruby Pilkington
Georgia Hodson
Beth Schofield
Isobel Wallwork
Jess Kelly (Y10)
Chloe Chapman (Y10)
Sam Woodman (Y10)

Soccer Success in English Schools’ Comp

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!

Girls win Bronze in Basketball Comp

Girls win Bronze in Basketball Comp

Sports News

Our Year 10 girls’ basketball team won 3rd place in the Under 16s Greater Manchester School Games last week. The team were awarded their bronze medals at the Belle Vue Sports Village competition after beating Blessed John Henry Newman RC College in the first round. They lost against Reddish Vale but they refused to be deterred and won their final game against Swinton High and progressed into the next round.

A tough game against Trinity in the semi finals meant they went through into the third place play-off against Flixton Girls’ School and won convincingly.

The girls gave a cracking performance throughout the competition and should be very proud of themselves. They certainly did the school proud. Well done girls!
