Wigan School FinalWe had fantastic sporting success last week with the Year 7 and 10 boys football teams both winning the Wigan Schools final at Robin Park; both teams represented the school fantastically well.  Another team who represented the school superbly are the Year 9 boys rugby team, who made it through to the National Schools semi-final with victory on Wednesday. Congratulations to all the boys and Mr Bradley and the PE staff who give up so much of their time to coach and improve the pupils.  The boys football teams can be seen below.

Mrs Evans told me how proud she was of our pupils who won certificates for their involvement in the MEM (Mathematical Education on Merseyside) Challenge.  The challenges were completed over February half term and sent to Liverpool University. The results are our best ever!  In the challenge, Ethan Smith in Year 7 was awarded ‘Best in School’ and has received a Certificate of Merit and an invitation to Liverpool University for the prize-giving ceremony. There were over 1600 entries for the challenge so Ethan has done extremely well.  In the senior challenge James Forshaw in Year 9 was awarded ‘Best in School’ but also won second prize in the whole competition. There were over 900 entries in the senior challenge.  James has also been invited to the prize ceremony at Liverpool University.  Year 9 did brilliantly and several other pupils have also won prizes and invitations to the university: Kiera Featherstone - second prize, Amalea Grundy - consolation prize, Olivia Harrald, Joanna Smith, Owen Massey and Krystyna Szczerba all received a Certificate of Merit.  In Year 10, James Cross and Anna Darcy also received a Certificate of Merit.  Fantastic work from all involved - well done.

Mrs Crompton told me that our Year 10 pupils excelled yet again in the biology challenge, especially Aleyna Adamson, Callum Kelly, Nadia Barton, Ellie Doherty and Aaron Howarth who achieved gold awards. Brilliant work, Year 10; keep up the efforts.

Mrs Jones told me about the fantastic work her Year 8 class had produced. They completed incredibly moving and powerful work based on 'Private Peaceful', writing about a terrible experience in WW1: being a member of a firing squad.  They handled it with maturity and great sensitivity.  Her Year 9 class have written some wonderful poems based on Wilfred Owen's 'Dulce et Decorum Est' and having read them I can tell you they were truly moving!
Miss Taylor in Technology told me that 7C had produced outstanding work using 3D print pens, particularly Katie Chesworth whose designs you can see in the picture below - well done Katie!

Miss Gallagher informed me Year 7 continue to impress with their outstanding efforts. Top achievement point earners last week were Jenson Beentjes, Katie Murray, Michael Griffiths, Maisie Rafferty, Benjamin Van Mierlo, Lucy Bradbury, Charlie Coffey - each with 9, Niamh Williams with 10 and with an incredible 33 points,  Molly Rigby!  Well done Year 7, keep up the good work.
