Half Term Review

It has been a very busy half term of sport for both students and PE staff with over 50 competitive fixtures being played in football and netball and hundreds of students regularly attending lunchtime and after school clubs and practices. The PE and Health Faculty continues to reinforce the importance of students leading an active healthy lifestyle and the positive impact this can have on both physical and mental health. A reminder that all children should be taking part part in 7 hours of physical activity per week with many students achieving this in school by representing school teams, attending sports clubs and even playing sport on the fields and astro at lunchtimes. To finish the half term it was fantastic to see ALL students in KS3 representing their Houses in the Inter Form Cross-Country competitions. It is always great to see students pushing themselves to achieve their best result whilst scoring points for the house – a full report will appear after half term.

Finally the schools motto of Aspire to Achieve is something we constantly push in the PE Faculty and last weekend I had the pleasure of watching former student Charlie Goode playing for Scunthorpe United against Wycombe Wanderers in Division 1 of the Football League. Seeing a former student playing sport professionally is a great source of inspiration for the students. Charlie has now made over 50 professional league appearances.This summer also former student Dominic Ashwell represented Great Britain finishing 5th in the World Under 20 100m Final in Tampere, Finland. Dominic was an outstanding athletics performer at school and to see him now as the 5th fastest U20 in the world is a great source of pride for the school.
