Year 6 Meet the Tutor Event

In light of rising numbers of Covid-19 within the BCP area, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the planned  Year 6 'Meet the Tutor' events taking place this week. The health and safety of our community and reducing transmission of Covid-19, remains our priority at this time. 

We are intending to run a virtual event in the week commencing 5 July 2021 and will be in contact over the next few days in relation to arrangements for these.

 


Transition Day – 30 June 2021

Regretfully, our planned Transition Day for Wednesday 30 June 2021 will not be taking place following the recent Government guidance in relation to extended lockdown measures. This has been a difficult decision to make, however to ensure your child’s safety this has been necessary given the current circumstances. We are intending to host a ‘Meet the Tutor’ event and will be in touch with you regarding further details on this next week.

 


Year 9 National Cup Final

The Year 9 Football B team managed to finish a staggering cup run which started way back in September 2019 with a first-round victory against St Georges School from Southampton. This continued with some excellent football being played over the next five rounds, including wins against schools from Devon, Surrey, and Manchester. This led to a delayed final, which no one knew if it would ever get played. The ESFA did a fantastic job in such difficult times and managed to secure the home of Premier League club Crystal Palace, Selhurst Park for the final.

The boys were treated like Premier League stars for the day and loved every second of it. The game didn't quite go our way in a nervous first half, where the opponents, Hurstmere School from Kent took and early 3-0 lead, which took us into half time. However, the team showed tremendous character and resilience to bring that score back to 3-2, goals from Harrison Marsh and Bradley Walker. Making the last 20 minutes very nerve wracking and interesting. Hurstmere managed to grab a goal to gain a 2-goal advantage again, but that didn't stop the GW barrage continue on the Hurstmere goal. A Superb defensive clearance, led by another strong tackle in midfield, finished with an outstanding Charlie White finish, set up and manic 5 minutes.

We unfortunately couldn't find an equaliser but what a fantastic day out for everyone involved, Mr Doyle and I were joined by Mrs Viney, Miss Ford and Mr Scott who were all so proud of the team. The heart, desire, and commitment the team showed throughout the game was incredible and epitomises what GW is all about.
