SPONSORED WALK

The weather stayed fine and year 7-10 had a great afternoon walking round the Devisdale and Denzell Gardens raising money for the school. The fancy dress theme was emojis, chosen by the PTA. The PTA also provided refreshments for the girls – thank you very much.

The girls really got into the spirit of the event as you can see below. Thank you girls.

AEGON SUCCESS


The U13 Aegon tennis team won their final match against The Grange School, Hartford by 5 sets to 1.

They now join the U15 team in the knock-out stages of this National competition in September.

Well done to both teams. I don’t think we have had both teams through to this stage before. 

Year 8 TENNIS v LORETO GRAMMAR SCHOOL


Six couples played in this match. The first three teams made up team 1 (B and C Aegon team players) and the second three teams made up team 2 ( for some of these it was their first ever match).

Team 1 lost by 28 games to 36 and Team 2 won by 35 games to 21.

Well done girls. Some very good and enjoyable tennis was played.

TENNIS AT KING’S SCHOOL, CHESTER


The year 9’s had a great morning’s tennis playing in the King’s School U14 Invitation Tournament on Saturday.  There were 8 teams playing in two sections of round robin matches.

After a draw against Stockport Grammar School (9 games all) : a win against King’s ‘B’ ( 21-0) and a loss against a very strong Queen’s School ‘A’ team (7-12) we qualified for the ‘Cup’ finals. In these three matches we beat King’s ‘A’ team 13-4 and Moreton Hall School, Shropshire 15-2 but lost again to Queen’s ‘A’ team 7-13. We were therefore runners-up of the tournament.

Well done girls – you played some great tennis.

BFET Sports Day Champions!

YEAR 8 TENNIS SUCCESS v WILMSLOW HIGH SCHOOL


Congratulations to the u13 team (and their mascots Eric the elephants) for their brilliant win tonight in the Aegon tennis competition. As the girls were knocking up it looked as though it was going to be a really rough match as the Wilmslow girls looked very strong. However Amber, Sarah, Kitty and Evie played some superb tennis to beat them by 5 sets to 1.

This team have not lost any of their Aegon matches yet. One more to go against The Grange School, Hartford, next week. If we win that match we will qualify for the National Knockout stages in September.

Good luck girls and well done so far.

ROWING SUCCESS

Ellie's Rowing Success, 2016

Ellies-rowing-success-2016Ellie Heathcock (year 10), a long with three crew, became British Champions at the National Schools’ Regatta in the women junior under 15 coaxed quad category. This is the highest possible achievement in rowImg at her age. Henley Regatta and selection for the GB junior team are not yet opened to her. At 15 , this is the pinnacle of rowing.

For this amazing rowing achievement Ellie won a gold medal. Ellie and her squad have won all regional and national level competition meetings all year.

Well done Ellie. We are very proud of you.

AEGON TENNIS : Success against Sale Grammar School

The year 8 and 10 ‘B’ teams played against Sale’ ‘A’ teams in another Aegon match. The year 10 won by 5 sets to 1. The year 8 match was a lot closer. After the 6 sets the score was 3-3. The result was then decided by a championship tie-break to 10 points. It was very closely fought but we came out on top by 10 points to 7.

Well done to both teams.

YEAR 9 MERIT TRIP

9-2 and 9-5 have won the most merits this year and were invited to attend a session at Oxygen Freejumping at Trafford Park. This is a new venture and we had been invited to send a group to test out the facilities before it opens to the public. The girls had a great time jumping on the numerous trampolines and playing games associated with them. All girls were given a free t shirt, a pair of bright yellow socks with the company logo on them and were then treated to pizza and a drink at the end of the one hour session. It was a great hit with the girls and we hope to take other groups in the future.
