On Tuesday 15th October, the NGHS came over for a home fixture against our boys’ teams. This year children from Years 4, 5 and 6 were selected to represent their year group, many for the first time. After an exciting start in the Medley relays, pupils from both the schools swam exceedingly well in the individual 25m events, with some very exciting and close finishes. Freestyle relays were then held for both age groups and again there was some excellent swimming. The final scores were as follows:

1st NBHS A team: 90 points

2nd NGHS A team: 61 points

3rd NBHS B team:  52 points

4th NGHS B team: 33 points

Football

The U10s & U9s combined team performed brilliantly at the Foremarke Football Tournament on Saturday. We won our group with two wins (3-1 vs. Packwood, 1-0 vs. Ratcliffe College) and one defeat (1-0 to Birchfield). This took us through to the semi-finals, which we narrowly lost (2-1 against Prestfelde). We also were beaten (2-1 by Birkdale) in the 3rd place play-off, meaning we came 4th out of 16 teams in the tournament. The boys can be very pleased with their performance, especially as 4 of them were a year younger than everyone else.

DSCF2138Stand-out performances from Adam K in goal – he kept us in it a lot of the time with his shot stopping and Isaac M who scored all 6 of our goals in the tournament!

In addition, we were able to congratulate the U11 C & D teams for comprehensive victories in their matches against Grangemount Preparatory School. Thomas B’s C team won 8-0 and Ben W’s D team won 5-0. Thank you to Mr Farman for refereeing the D team match. This allowed our B game boys a fixture, and they really enjoyed the experience.
