Project Rugby – Sale Sharks

Bury Church of England High School are working closely with Sale Sharks as part of ‘Project Rugby’. This project is aimed at participation in Rugby Union in school time and out of school time. It also aims to get as many students as possible involved in playing Rugby Union for a local side and provides a pathway for Rugby Union outside of school time. Rugby Union coaches from Sale Sharks have been delivering lessons to Boys and Girls in Years 9-11. The response so far from students in school has been excellent and the coaches from Sale Sharks have been really impressed with the behaviour and attitude of the students from our school.

Rugby training is on every Thursday after school from 3.35pm to 4.35pm and it is open to all students.

 

School Games Mark – BRONZE

The PE Department at Bury CE High School applied for the ‘School Games Mark’ towards the end of the last academic year. This is a national award that recognises the quantity of PE, extra-curricular PE and Sport that a school offers over each academic year. As part of this process Bury CE High School was selected to be externally validated. We are delighted to announce that we achieved a ‘BRONZE School Games Mark’ for the 2017 to 2018 academic year. Bury CE High School was the first high school in the local authority to achieve this award. The visiting inspector who came to validate the award was really impressed with the extensive amount of PE and Sport on offer at Bury Church of England High School.

 

Bury CE High School PE Department – Sports Awards

At the end of the last academic year the PE Department held their annual Sports Award Evening. The awards evening was held in the school hall and it was great to welcome the former Bury CE High School PE staff of Mr Dorey and Miss Leng to the celebration.

Our special guest on the evening was an up and coming local Boxer called Jack Catterall. Jack who is from Chorley has a won a number of Boxing titles and has the potential to be a Boxing superstar. Jack spoke to the audience about his career and the importance of hard work in sport alongside hard work in school.

Sports awards medals and certificates were then presented to selected students for one or more of the following reasons:

Sports awards trophies were then presented to the ‘Players of the Year’ from the different sports we offer in school.

The final part of the celebration was to award the overall ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ trophies to a Boy and a Girl in Years 7-10. The ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ awards went to the following students in the last academic year:

Well done to all the students who achieved ‘Sports Awards’ for 2017 to 2018.

 

Year 11 Basketball Results

The Year 11 Boys Basketball team played their first competitive game of the season against a really strong team from St Gabriel’s who won the game 45 points to 20. St Gabriel’s started the game really well and got ahead with a strong lead but it was really pleasing that Bury CE High School finished the game well in the last two quarters and did not give up. Player of the match was Josh.

The team went on to play their second game of the season against Elton. Bury CE High School won 27 points to 23. The students all showed fantastic attitude and the hard work in training from the previous Thursday’s training session was clear to see. Bury CE High School were the stronger team overall and could have scored a lot more points and will need to be more clinical around the basket in future games. Well done to all students who played. Player of the match was Adam from Year 10 who was playing for the Year 11s.

The Year 11 Boys Basketball team went on to play a strong team from Bury Grammar. The students worked really hard but came up against an excellent team. Bury Grammar won the game 66 points to 33. Player of the match was again Adam from Year 10 who was playing for the Year 11s.

Girls Football

Girls football training has been taking place regularly. If you are interested in playing girls football please see a member of PE staff or Diana in the school office.

 

The U13s girls played away at Crompton House, Oldham in the Greater Manchester Schools Competition. Bury CE High School played really well but ended up losing 3-1. Olivia in Year 7 scored two goals in the game but one was deemed off-side and the Player of the Match was Olivia in Year 8.

 

The U15s girls played in the U16s Bury Schools football competition at Woodhey. Bury CE High School played really well against older students and finished in a fantastic joint 1st overall. The scores were as follows:

 

The U15s girls played away at Wellington High School, Altrincham in the Greater Manchester Schools Competition. It was very much a game of tactics as both teams were very evenly matched. Bury CE High School found themselves 3-1 down at one point. But showed a great team spirit and worked hard for each other to over turn the deficit to eventually win the game 3-4. With goals coming from Robyn (3) and Hollie (1). Girl of the match was Olivia who showed a great determination throughout the game. The team of Hollie, Robyn, Olivia, Esme, Sophie, Makenzie, Daisy, Emily, Ella, Jasmine, Emma & Faith will now go on to the semi-final which is due to be played before the 20 December.

 

The Year 7 girls team made their first outing for Bury CE High School with a trip to Elton High School to play the host team, The Derby and Parrenthorn in the Bury Schools 5-a-side competition. The girls first match was against Elton. It was unfamiliar rules to some who had not played a competitive football match before and for others a change to the normal rules they play on a weekend. Whilst they adapted they found themselves 2-0 down, but soon re-adjusted and brought the game back to 2-2, with fabulous goals from Olivia. With seconds to go Elton just stole the game 3 – 2. It was very pleasing to see the girls take on board instruction and apply it quickly. The second game was against The Derby High School. This was the girls best performance by far. They were organised and moved the ball well. And in just a short 8 minute game of football Olivia scored a further 3 goals and Sienna got on the score sheet with 2 of her own. It was a great 5-2 win for Bury CE High School. Last game and we knew we where likely to finish second and with this in mind the girls rotated on and off the pitch to ensure everyone got to play plenty of minutes. Olivia scored another 2 before being substituted off. Bury CE High School finished second overall. A very pleasing result. Girl of the tournament was Olivia. A special mention to Ellie in goal, who saved a penalty. And to the rest of the team, Lucy, Leah, Sienna, Rosie, Lois, Matilda, Polly and Millie who showed great skill and determination.

 

Well done to all the students who have represented the school at sport or attended PE practices.
