TAHS Weekly Newsletter.
I would just like to personally thank parents and students who joined us for the year 11 celebration day . It was wonderful to see everyone together enjoying their final day.
On Tuesday the Year 12 students will be heading off to the NEC for the day. While we are there the students will have the opportunity to see apprenticeship providers as well as universities. There is also a seminar or two for students to listen to.
Well Done Adam
Well done to Year 13 student Adam Burrows who on Wednesday evening attended a District Scout meeting and was presented with his Queens Scout Award. This is the highest award you can get in scouting. The District Commissioner said Adam was the first person to get this award in the district for many years. Adam will now attend a ceremony and parade at Windsor Castle in April next year. Huge congratulations to Adam on this achievement.
News from PE
Year Nine Cricket Team.
No the weather has improved the year nine cricket team were able to get their season underway. On Thursday Alleyne’s played De Ferrers in the first league game of the season. In a sixteen over game Alleyne’s batted first. After a flurry of quick wickets by the De Ferrers bowlers in was left to McGarry and Alcock to steady the ship. Both batsmen played well scoring 12 and 20., they steered the team to a respectable 73 runs. The De Ferrers batsman strugled against the accurate bowling of Cooper and Forrester and lost quick wickets in four overs with a score of 20. The opening bowlers were further supported by D. Forrester and McGarry and the batsmen found it diffult to score runs. Eventually Alleyne’s bowled all their overs and only conceded 34 runs. A very good display by all the team well done. Next game is Tuesday against Stanley Matthews, away at Longton Cricket Club.
County and Regional Athletics
Several students from Thomas Alleynes braved the windy and torrential rain conditions at Northwood stadium at the County Athletics Championships. Louisa Page was 3rd in the junior girls shot with a distance of 7.24m. Charlotte Ward completed the 200m in a season best time of 31.3secs.
Harry Merdith Wood was 7th in the 1500m in a time of 5:12minutes, Callum Stockbridge cleared the High Jump at 1.45m and jumped a distance of 9.67m in the triple jump. Josh Rogers threw the javelin 24.22m.
Two competitors from TAHS managed to qualify for the Mason Trophy which is held at the Alexander Stadium by finishing in second place in their events. George Foster finished 2nd in both the 100m and 200m, with times of 11.7 and 23.6 seconds respectively. At the Mason Trophy George finished 4 in the region for his events and he will hopefully qualify for the English Schools event.
Ellie Alcock also saw personal bests in her event discus, finishing 2nd at Northwood with a distance of 24.67m and 25.09m at the Mason Trophy.
Congratulations to all of the competitors
The county cricket finals saw TAHS, soundly beaten by Blythe Bridge in the semi finals. Zoe was able to take one wicket, but Blythe Bridge were scoring a run a ball with quick running between the wickets and taking advantage of some sloppy fielding on occasion. Eve, Liberty, Zoe and Holly did a good job trying to match the batting of Blythe bridge but their bowling was very accurate.
Things vastly improved for the second game against Paget with Maddy taking a couple of wickets from her over, the Hadgett twins fielded well, with Freya putting her body on the line to try and stop a boundary. Amelia and Neve also bowled consistently.
Squad – Hadgett, Bednall, Chatfield, Hadgett, Carr, Peaty, Egerton, Carr
Orme were victorious in this house event by keeping a 100% record.
Rounders club is on next Tuesday – please attend as we have fixtures against Paget and William Allit next week
