Cross Country At Wath Comprehensive School

30 pupils of our own pupils visited Wath Comprehsive School for the first cross country event of the season.
The pupils were a true credit to school and for the second year running we had the biggest turn out from the local schools!
Year 7 boys and girls lead the way with some great performances from Mitchell and Billie-Jo coming in the top ten and Boris showing determination by pulling up the rear and his crossing line comment of ‘never again I am shattered’ to then ask where we are next week!
Year 8 and Year 9 boys and girl responded well to a tough field and some tactics of tripping them over on the homeward stretch!
Year 10 and 11 girls came in strong with Tiegan and Shantel coming in the top ten in a tough field of runners.
Well done to all of the runners for their hard work and determination!

Rugby Kit Designed By Our Own Students

Yesterday Mr Fisher took 4 students to Laund Hill YMCA in Huddersfield to take part in a workshop with representatives of Canterbury Sportswear and the RFU to design a Rugby shirt for our School.

It was about involving pupils who love participating in sport so we took Neve and Joshua from Y7 along with Sathurja and Finley from Y8.

The pupils had to come up with their individual designs and then agree on one and finalise it.

Josh then pitched our finished idea to all the other schools. He did this in a really confident and mature manner which was commented on by the organisers.

The pupils were really proud of their finished design which incorporated several features connected to our school badge and ‘High Expectations’ motto. Their sense of teamwork, support of each other and their general conduct was a pleasure to witness.

Our design will be produced and the next time we see it the school Rugby team will proudly wear 20 shirts that were designed by our very own!

Clifton Soul Band Returns!

Y8 Football First 11 Side Fixture Of The Season

Tonight was our first 11 a side fixture again last years cup winners Aston, which saw a few new faces line up for Clifton.

We started the game well on a very large pitch for the lads, Aston quickly got in their stride being a larger and stronger team. They soon made that pay going into a 3 goal lead. From the kick off we decided to start playing some football. A series of one touch passes saw Josh one on one with the keeper, Josh confidently went around him and placed the ball into the net. 3-1 at half time.

After a rousing team talk the lads went out confIdently and soon scored through a cross from Owen landing at Finley’s feet who placed the ball into the top corner 3-2. We started pressing further and made their keep make a couple of saves. Pushing for the equaliser we left gaps in defence and Astons quick strikers made us pay with a further 3 goals against a tiring team. Resulting in a final score of 6-2 to Aston, the lads played really well against a very strong team. On wards and up wards for this team who will only get better during the coming weeks!

Special mention to Nader Ali, Henrik Olah, Mohammad Cardesa and Roland Varady who made their first appearance for Clifton tonight and impeccably represented Clifton. Another mention for Kurtis Rich who put in a Man of the Match display in despite being injured.

Well done to the students on their efforts.
