Football Our U11 team defeated Fernwood 5-4 on penalties at Meadow Lane on Saturday 7th. We had greater possession and more shots during the game, but could not take our half-chances during normal time. The penalties from both sides were fantastic up until their player hit the post, leaving Aamran to smash the winning penalty into the top corner!
The U11 team will now travel to Swindon on 11th March to compete for the chance to play at Wembley.
On Thursday night at Fairfield Prep, the results were U8s lost 5-1. Goal scored by Harry G.. U9a won 4-3. Goals from Noah, Matthew B (2), Mohintan. U9b won 7-4. Goals from Rayan M (3),Harvey (2), Aman (2).
Hockey The U11 Hockey team contested their very first fixture yesterday. They travelled to Derby to play DGS. The boys took the lead early on and then held on to the last few minutes but conceded 2 goals. This has been a fantastic achievement as they have only had a few sessions with Mr Cowley.

National Schools’ Chess Championships 2015
Congratulations are in order to our Under 11 and Under 9 chess players who performed exceptionally well on Sunday here at the School in the Nottingham zone of the National Schools’ Chess Championships 2015. There were 24 teams and 144 children taking part in total.
In what turned out to be two tough groups with some outstanding chess players taking part our School had two Under 11s teams and three Under 9 teams qualify for the National Semi Finals in Bristol on Saturday 16th May. It was particularly satisfying to see that our very youngest team even qualified. I had hoped they would gain experience and knowledge of playing in a major tournament and was pleasantly surprised to see they had qualified.
The teams who qualified were:
1st Nottingham A
2nd Bramcote A
3rd Bramcote B
4th Laxton A
=5th Nottingham B
And Nottinghmam D (our yr3 team)
1st Nottingham A
2nd Fernwood A
3rd Laxton A
4th Laxton C
5th Laxton B
6th Nottingham B
7th Jesse Gray A
In my capacity as Chairperson of Nottingham Chess Association I feel proud of the schools performances from our County.
NHIJS hosted a primary school cross country festival at Wollaton Park on Friday. The event was a huge success with 19 schools attending and a total of 423 pupils running. Nottingham High School pupils ran very well; we had 48 in total representing the school. The U9 team won Bronze medals with Luca V. winning individual silver. The U11 team finished 4th.
Thank you to Mr Allison , Mrs George, Mrs Smith and the Senior PE staff for their superb organisation and also to Mr. Spedding (Deputy Head Pastoral), who came to enjoy the event.
William T. for dedication to representing the School. William ran at Wollaton Park on Friday then at Worksop on Saturday morning and finally played football for the School in the afternoon! (I expect he slept well that night!)
Alex B. who stepped in and played against Y6 on Sunday for the U11 Chess Team (despite being Year 3). He didn’t complain, if he felt afraid – he didn’t show it and smiled throughout the day.
James R. for incredible perseverance at the cross-country on Friday. James’ shoe came off as he was running but he continued to complete the course in his socks. (I imagine the washing machine had to work hard on those socks!)
