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┬áBlessed 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!
