Boys Sports Update:

Happy New Year & welcome back.

Please note the pupils have to be a bit more on the ball this year as it is a mixed bag in terms of activities this term. As well as football there is also rugby sevens and cricket practices and the weekend activities will change regularly. Please note that if a school practice coincides with a club fixture at a weekend then please feel free to play the club fixture but do come and tell one of the staff beforehand. Where there is a clash between a school and club fixture then as usual, the pupils are expected to play for school.


The under 12 football team beat Perton (Staffordshire) 3-1 on the last 16 of the ESFA Cup and are now through to the last 8, the first time any side from the school has achieved this.


On Monday, the under 13s play in the Lancashire Cup Rugby Festival at Preston Grasshoppers. The tournament starts at 10:30am

The 1st & 2nd XI Football teams play Merchants away on Wednesday; a 2:30pm start.

Next Thursday the under 15s aim to emulate the under 12s by also reaching the last 8 of the ESFA Cup away in the Ribble Valley


As well as the fixed practices on the time table below, the under 13s prepare for their Lancashire Cup Festival tomorrow, training from 10-11am at the field. Year 7 are also very welcome to attend.

The 1st XV are training from 9-10:30am tomorrow at the field in preparation for the Lancashire Cup Final
