Unfortunately, they finished 3rd in the next group stage and didn't quite make the next round. The boys represented school really well and had an excellent time!

The boys began their football season with a double header on Friday night. They drew 0-0 with St Clare’s and lost 1-0 to St.Anthony’s. They played really well in both games and battled superbly. They all gave it everything and were very unlucky not to win both games! They were playing the second half of the second half of the second game in near darkness too!

A mixed team of year 6 boys and girls entered the annual triathlon at West View Leisure Centre. They performed extremely well, showed excellent team spirit and were very well behaved. They finished a very respectable 5th out of 23 schools. Jessica Wafer recorded the fastest swimming time on the day, beating the times of over 130 other children! Well done to each child for representing the school so well.
