Our Girls are Bury Football Champions!

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!

Girls win Bronze in Basketball Comp

Girls win Bronze in Basketball Comp

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!
