Year 7 PEDSSA Footbal Cup Final
In our much anticipated Year 7 Boys  PEDSSA Football Cup Final we played Poole Grammar School. The boys had a slow start and unfortunately we had a mountain to climb as we were 3-0 down within 10 minutes. We actually raised our game and created several chances and conceded a counter attack goal at the end of the half to be 4-0 down at the break. We certainly were not down and out and we came out of traps in a positive mood to try and claw some goals back. Wes scored a fantastic 20 yard strike and was energetic all match. Then their keeper produced, in my opinion the best save I have seen all season when he finger tipped Connor’s left footed strike onto the angle between the cross bar and post. He then deflected another long range shot wide. We were certainly giving it a jolly good go. Poole Grammar added a 5th and then we quickly responded with superbly struck shot from George after Harrison’s strong run. Again we created more opportunities but it was not meant to be. It is extremely sad to lose in any cup final and as disappointed we are, we are also not downhearted because the lads produced some excellent determination and spirit to try and get back into the game. It certainly was a game of two halves. I am thoroughly honoured to be associated with this group of lads and they always make me very proud!

Year 5 Tag Rugby
We took some extremely excited pupils from year 5 to Bournemouth Rugby Club to enter their tag rugby competition. It certainly was an enjoyable afternoon where all pupils worked fantastically well to contribute to this festival. Throughout the day we won three and lost two and all matches were keenly contested. Well played boys and girls, you certainly did the school proud.
