Absolutely amazing!

Absolutely amazing!

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that today won the T&W tournament and now go through to play in the final at the Bucks Head Stadium against Old Park Primary on the primary schools final night. The girls played 5 matches, winning them all, scoring 15 and conceding 0. The girls have worked so hard all season leading up to today and it paid off with their fantastic results. We don’t normally mention individual goal scorers as we feel every goal is a team effort that usually starts from the back, but we can’t help but mention the goals in the semi final today. The girls spent easily 20 minutes before the tournament today working on corners and who would stand where and where we wanted the ball being crossed to. The girls took all this on board and it worked a treat with a fantastic corner floated in and an even better leaping header from Frances. You had to see the header to appreciate how good it was.

We also think Grange Park have made history by being the first school to have a girls team in both the 3/4 and 5/6 finals in the same year. Absolutely amazing girls.

Year 3/4 Telford & Wrekin Cup

Year 3/4 Telford & Wrekin Cup

Well done to our year 3/4 football team that competed in the Telford & Wrekin football tournament this afternoon at TCAT.

The children were an absolute credit to the school again and we couldn’t be any prouder of their performances. The team won their first match 3-0 against Aqueduct, drew their 2nd 0-0 with Short Wood and won their third match 2-0 against one of the favourites Ladygrove.

This meant whoever won the match between ourselves and a very good St Patricks team would get through to the semi finals. The game was extremely tight and Grange Park looked to have built a brick wall that St Patricks couldn’t get through, but then with a few minutes left they scored a thunderous free kick that our goalkeeper nearly saved tipping the ball onto the post but it just crept in.

We then went all out and nearly scored ourselves but it just wasn’t to be our day today.

St Patricks then went on to win their semi final and the final, so our team only lost to the eventual winners.

We couldn’t be any prouder of these fantastic footballers tonight, not only for their performance on the pitch but for their fantastic attitude after defeat as well.

Year 3/4 Girls Football

Year 3/4 Girls Football

Well done to our Year 3/4 girls football team that tonight competed in the semi final stages of the County Cup. The girls got off to a great start winning 2 and drawing 1 match which meant they only needed to draw their last game to secure their place in the County Cup Final. Unfortunately we narrowly lost this match 1-0 after our opponents took advantage over some confusion whether it was a goal kick or corner and despite lots of pressure from our girls, we just couldn’t find the equaliser. It’s a massive achievement that our girls got his far and although it was disappointing not to reach the final, the girls and parents should be extremely proud of their accomplishment. The girls now have the Telford cup final to look forward to #TeamGP

Year 3/4 Cup Final

Year 3/4 Cup Final

Well done to both our Year 3/4 girls football teams that today competed in the T&W Cup. Both teams did fantastic and were an absolute credit to the school.

Grange Park Team 1 (Blue Team) were a mix of girls that had played for the school before and girls that were playing for their first ever time. Mr Dunn said that the girls in Team 1 had done so well throughout the afternoon and improved massively from their first match. All their matches were extremely close and they even beat a team that qualified to the quarter finals. That shows how close their group was.

Team 2 (Grey Team) also had a tough group and knew they would have to be at their best today to get through their group to the knock out stage. Team two topped their group though scoring 11 and conceding 0 to secure their place in the quarter-finals.

The girls then played Newdale Primary School and got off to a flyer scoring 2 goals within 3 minutes and the game ended up 3-0. This meant the girls were through to the semi-finals and we found out we had to play another unbeaten team Newport Primary School that had won their quarter final 3-0.

Again the girls were on fire and scored straight from kick off and continued to dominate the game and eventually won 5-0! This means the Year 3/4 girls football team are through to the final of the T&W Cup and will play at the Bucks Head Stadium in May. The team has improved so much this season and fully deserves to be in the final where we face a tough test against our friendly rivals Redhill Primary School.

Well done to both teams today, we couldn’t be any prouder.

Shropshire Champions

Shropshire Champions

Well done to our Year 5/6 indoor athletics team that were today crowned Shropshire Champions. We think we might be the first school to ever win the boys and girls in the same year. All the track races were extremely close today but our field results were truly outstanding. All their hard work has paid off. Couldn’t be any prouder of every member of this fantastic team that have won at the highest level they can compete at for a school team. Well done #TeamGP – Shropshire County Champions

Also massive thanks to our amazing staff that helped transport 20 children to the event at last minute when we were let down by a mini bus. Proves our staff also have the amazing #TeamGP spirit.

Well done to our Year 6 girls football team that tonight won 13-0 against Priorslee Academy. We always say to the girls, it’s more about the performance than the results but today they showed both and put in a fantastic team performance to match the result. This was our final friendly before the T&W Cup and it was one of our best performances of the season. The girls passing was an absolute joy to watch, especially one goal in particular where all the team touched the ball before it was whipped in from the wing and nicely tucked away in the corner. Well done girls and good luck in the T&W Cup #TeamGP

Year 3/4 Girls League Match

We have one more league match that will be played next half term but after tonight’s result, the girls have guaranteed qualification to the champions league group. Well done #TeamGP another strong performance.
