Today was the Y10 awards assembly. An exceptional way to celebrate the achievements and effort of our year group over the last 12 months. The awards included 100% attendance, outstanding effort and achievements in a variety subjects. It was lovely to see parents and carers that came to support and celebrate with the students, and see how proud each student was. Our top boy was Alex Mace who has 100% attendance, number 1 effort ranking and also received a subject award. Our top girl was Habibah Hussain who is also number 1 in the effort ranking and achieved 4 separate subject awards! A brilliant achievement. Both of these students have impressed throughout the year with their commitment to their studies and extra-curricular. They demonstrate the Clifton Way each and every day and it was lovely to see how excited they were to win this. Congratulations to all our award winners, you have done yourself proud!
In the past week, two groups of Y11 students attended residentials at the University of Sheffield, where they spent two days taking part in activities as well as the night at Endcliffe Student Village. They took part in team building at Sport Sheffield, problem solving and presentations at the university and a trip to the cinema in order to sample university life. All students engaged in activities and overcame the barrier of being grouped with other schools in a new environment to make the most of their experience.
Today was our Y8 awards assembly. We had a lovely time celebrating the outstanding achievements of many students. There were 78 awards received for improvement in attendance, outstanding achievements in specific subjects, resilience, hard work and much more. It was a pleasure to see so many parents and carers joining us to share in our pride of the students who have shown such dedication to being the best that they can be. Our top boy is Logan McCloud and our top girl is Abigail Foord. They have both impressed us this year with high attendance, consistently excellent effort and both receiving 4 separate subject awards. They have continuously worked to embody the Clifton Way and drive up their own standards. We are extremely proud of them. Overall, the celebration was an excellent opportunity for the Clifton family to recognise the many achievements of our wonderful Y8 students.
Mr Davis and I took a mixed Y9/10 team to Oakwood for a lovely evening of cricket. Sofian won the toss and elected to field first. Being conscious that this was our first (and perhaps last) full fixture I was conscious to give as many lads experience as possible and with a talented bunch this didn’t really affect our performance.
Standout bowlers were Mohammad Kashif who took 2 in 2 balls, narrowly missing out on a hat-trick and Omar Shafia with a very well-bowled maiden. In the field there was an outstanding catch from Akaash and a fantastic run out by Said. We bowled and fielded very well to restrict Oakwood to 74 runs.
Oakwood were much more talented with the ball than the bat and it was clear to see why they are playing in a semi-final tomorrow. We started quite well with Akaash smashing one to the long boundary for four but then we stalled slightly, unable to find boundaries until Hikmat came in and hit a 4 followed by a 6 which got us back in the running. Unfortunately it was just a bit too much and we came up 16 runs short.
A very pleasant, competitive match. Well done to all the lads and thanks to Mr Davis for umpiring so I could shout encouragement from the sidelines!!
