Tilly and her team win the Junior World Inline Championships

Tilly O, July 2018Tilly competed at the Artistic Inline World Championships in Cork, Ireland with her team, Whizz Kids. They are returning as the Junior World Champions. This was a new adventure for them as they skated on wheels and not blades, with only 10 weeks of training. They also got a bronze in the Chorus section.

This is a fantastic achievement for Tilly and her team, well done!

English Schools’ Athletics Success at regional level

Congratulations to the Year 9 and 10 students who qualified for the Regional A final of the prestigious English Schools Track and Field Cup.  We were winners at Greater Manchester level and went to Robin Park, Wigan to compete against the best schools across the North West for a place at national finals in Gateshead.

The team were amazing in both the track and the field events with some superb performance and PB’s set.  We finished second place narrowly missing out on a place in the finals.  It is fair to say we were all truly devastated at being so close to that first place spot.

I am extremely proud of the team and the way they handled the whole situation, they are amazing athletes in their physical performance but also their manner and sportsmanship.  Well done my team!

Athletics Success for Francesca!

Last weekend Francesca won the National U20 Championship in the 1500m and is officially the best in Britain!  We are waiting news this weekend that she has achieved the time required to qualify for the World Championships .  What amazing news, we are very proud of you Francesca!

Francesca also raced in the senior Girl`s 800m at The Greater Manchester Schools and finished 1st in 2 minutes 9 seconds and broke the championship record set in 1995.   She has also qualified for the English Schools Championships, where she will be entered into 1500m.

Below is a picture of Francesca racing for Great Britain on May 20th at the Loughborough International where she set a PB of 4 minutes 18 seconds.

English Schools Athletics Success

Indoor athletics

The students representing the school in Athletics yesterday were very successful. The junior team (Years 7 and 8) finished fourth place overall with some very good individual successes, particularly mention should go to Olivia B in Year 8 for an exceptional 800m time. They will compete in the North West regional B final.

The intermediate team (Years 9 and 10) demonstrated their commitment and experience at the event finishing first place which takes them to the North West regional A final.  Particular mention goes to Kitty H for an amazing 9.85m throw in the shot putt earning the team maximum points and Emma S and Alice D for exceptional performances in both of their events.

Looking forward to success at North West level.
