11-0: brilliant result for our u14 girls football team

Our U14 Girls Football triumph & more to celebrate in school this week!

We are so proud of our U14 Girl’s Football Team, who, in an amazing achievement, yesterday won their first fixture of the season with a phenomenal 11-0 score. They demonstrated brilliant teamwork and sportsmanship, and Head of Girl's PE Mrs Evans proudly reports: "Our best goal came from a pass from our goalkeeper to our right-back, who sent it up the wing, and then crossed it into the box where it was put in the back of the net".

Their next game is against Flixton Girls next week, and we wish them the very best of luck. Watch this space for updates!

Also in school this week:

Launch of Read for Black History Month House Challenge: following our special event last week, this reading challenge is a chance for students to participate in a Literacy initiative to celebrate Black History and diverse authors throughout October. Pictured below are Year 8 students browsing just some of the titles in our collection, on display in the LRC:

Sixth Form: on Monday the SF Leadership team delivered an invaluable session to Year 12 on Black Box thinking and effective strategies for reaching their full potential throughout KS5 by means of planning, independent study and revision; the importance of maintaining personal and mental well-being; and detailed guidance on accessing developed subject-specific advice.

Year 12 have also made an excellent start in their first week using the UpLearn platform, with some outstanding scores achieved. Well Done!

And we are thrilled to share that Year 13 Art & Design student Victoria has made a brilliant start to her Personal Project, which is called `Identity`, as you can see from these amazing examples of her work below:
