International cross country success for Francesca in Year 13!

Francesca in Year 13 has had the amazing opportunity to represent England at the ISF World Schools Cross Country Championships in Paris on April 4th 2018.   She was one of ten athletes selected to travel to France  to compete in the team and individual event.

The race took place on a fast and rather flat route under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.  Francesca was England’s individual star of the English Schools’ AA team and won a bronze medal behind Ella Heeney of Australia in the U18 Girls’ race!  What a magnificent achievement.

This follows her selection to race in Belgium in February where she won a silver medal.  Francesca is athlete with immense talent and that coupled with her sheer hard work and determination has resulted in the ultimate accolade of representing her country gaining national honours.  We are extremely proud of you Francesca and look forward to seeing you on the world cross country stage in the future!

AGGS Under 15s Hockey County Champions 2018

Saturday 24th March 2018 
Today was the under 15s county tournament at AGGS. 4 teams entered and there was some fantastic hockey played by all teams.  AGGS were determined to play well today. Their enthusiasm and positive attitudes were rewarded with a clean sweep winning each of their games and being crowned county champions. I am so proud of their hard work and effort this season, and today was the icing on the cake.

Report

Game 1 vs Stockport was a well fought match and a good opener to the morning with a 5-0 win. Goals came from Nadia, Freya, Emma and Annie.

Game 2 vs Cheadle Hulme was the game they were most looking forward to as they hadn’t yet managed to beat Cheadle  in the four years these two teams have been playing against each other. Annie winning a penalty flick in the first 5 minutes meant AGGS secured the lead and some frantic defending against a strong Cheadle side in the last few minutes of the game saw their hopes come true with a 3-1 win.  Their best ever results against this strong hockey school.

Their final game vs Withington also finished with a 3-0 victory seeing AGGS as the winners of the day.

Cheadle Hulme came second with a greater goal difference than Stockport, and Withington finished in 4th.

The AGGS team was  Captain Emma S, Vice Captain, Rosie, GKs Shona and Charlotte, players Pheobe, Maddie, Annie, Lucy, Aude, Mary, Freya, Nadia, Anna.

A special thank-you also goes to Mrs Simpson who’s Saturday morning cakes are unrivalled. Delicious as usual – thank you xx

Just Add Water !!

Wednesday 21st March 2018 

Just got home from hockey practice with the AGGS junior teams. Over 50 students turned up tonight to celebrate the end of the season with a fancy dress training session.

Coaches Mrs “Tigger” Hardicre and Mrs “Dinosaur” Reynolds  were joined by the year 7 zebras, year 8 hoodies and balloons and the year 9 swimmers.
Each year group was split into four teams and we had ourselves a mini  round robin tournament followed by a penalty shuffle.

Well done to teams “Im Not Sure” , “Shrek” and “The Best” for taking part and to our winners – team “Just Add Water”.

Thank you all for a fantastic hockey season. Enjoy the summer break and we will see you all on the training ground in September.

Here are some photos from the evening

This term we say goodbye to Mr Dave Garrod

Badminton team with coach Dave GarrodDave has been the badminton coach at AGGS for over 20 years since his daughter was a student at the school. In order to help her with her badminton he decided to get his coaching qualifications and worked hard to help AGGS shape the amazing badminton teams we have today.
He leaves us after helping secure the U16s in qualifying for the National Badminton Finals in Milton Keynes and we are all hoping for a win to end his legacy on a high.
He is retiring at the end of this season and will be missed massively by all. .

Here is a message from Dave:

Dear All,
thank you all so much for the cards and “treats”. I really, really appreciate them. Over the many years of coaching I have thoroughly enjoyed it, especially, of course, the successes. However it has not been all about the successes, it has been primarily been about working with very nice girls who’s enthusiasm, attitude to learning and wanting to improve has been outstanding. This has not been “at all cost” because one of the most satisfying aspects of the coaching has been the bonding between the team members and the high standards of integrity and behaviour that you have maintained. You have always been a credit to the school.
Thank you all, once again.
I will miss you all
Best wishes
Dave

 

Year 7 and 8 Badminton Interform

Almost 100 pupils attended the year 7 and 8 badminton interform competition tonight down at Altrincham leisure centre. There were some excellent performances and it was really good to see so many girls wanting to be involved in sport.

A huge thank you also goes out to the excellent sports leaders who  came down to umpire, keep score and run the competition. It couldn’t have happened without their help so thank you.

Next week sees year 9 and 10 complete their competition.
