Year 11 Mock Results Evening

The Year 11 team were delighted to welcome so many of our students and their families into school to receive their mock exam results last Thursday evening. Thanks to the parents, staff and post 16 providers who attended to give our students advice. Thanks also to Mr Watson for a very informative session on surviving Year 11 and how parents can support their children through what is a challenging time for families.

Year 9 Boys Football

The Year 9 boys Football team played last Tuesday in their first game of the year at Matthew Moss High School winning 5-3.

Oulder Hill started the game very strongly hitting the bar twice in the first 15 minutes. However, MMHS broke on the counter and made it 1-0. OH kept pushing with Ibrahim beating the MM right back and assisting Jack C to make it 1-1. Oulder Hill continued to pin the MM defence back and Mansoor found himself one on one with the Goalkeeper and was brought down in the box, penalty OH. MISSED!!!(I won’t name who J).

OH had the majority of the possession and had missed a few opportunities, again, hitting the bar due to a very good MM goalkeeper. MM grew in confidence and were on top for the remainder of the half, utilising high long balls over the back of our defence to great effect, they managed to squeeze two past Ashton. Half time, MMHS 3 – 1 OH

Second half, after changing a few things around OH came out confident dominating the second half and Harry Butterworth ran through four MM players to fire the ball into the top left corner. 3-2.

The game became end to end football and with five minutes left Max shot from outside the box making it 3-3. OH then believed they could complete the turnaround, with 2 minutes to play Jack C made it 3-4, 30 seconds later he scored again making it 3-5.

The boys were a real credit to the school, even after going 3-1 down they never gave up.
