2017 – 2018 has been another fantastic year for our #TeamGP sports teams. Not only have we had over 240 children represent a sports team, we have also been crowned champions at over 15 events at both District and County level.
We hope you enjoy our Sports Video that will be shown at the Sports Awards assembly this morning.
Well done to our Year 3/4 girls football team that tonight won the Meadows Cup. The competition tonight was extremely tough with every result being close. The girls results were Grange Park 1-0 John Fletcher, Grange Park 0-0 Hollinswood and Grange Park 1-0 Meadows. Our goalkeeper made an amazing save against Meadows when the game was 0-0 and they looked certain to score. The girls were a bit rusty tonight after having a long break but it wasn’t long until they got back to their best passing and moving style. The girls even played Short Wood boys in a friendly at the end and drew 0-0. #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 6 girls football team that tonight won the Meadows Cup. The girls put in some fantastic team performances in their 3 matches winning 4-0, 3-0 and finishing off with another 3-0. These girls have come on so far since starting to play football at the beginning of year 3 and they still improve every match. Today was the last match this group of girls will play together for Grange Park and they wore the same kit they wore for their first ever match. Well done #TeamGP
Today we joined up with Redhill Primary School to represent Telford & Wrekin Sports Partnership for the Year 3/4 Tri Golf County Finals. The children were fantastic throughout the whole event and scored an amazing 994 points to win.
We are over the moon to be awarded the Shropshire FA ‘Best Inclusive Project of the Year 2017 – 2018′, for the girls’ football leagues we run for primary schools in Telford and Wrekin. We already have over 40 primary school girls’ teams signed up for next year as well.
Well done to our Year 5 girls football team that had a great morning at the Year 5/6 Crossbar Cup. The girls drew 2 matches and lost 3 which unfortunately meant they didn’t qualify for the next round of the cup but they all had a great time and were improving with every game. One the matches they drew was against a team that didn’t lose a single match in the league. We don’t normally mention individual goal scorers because it’s a team game but we want to give special mention to Alexa for scoring her first ever goal after Amelie had dribbled the ball the whole length of the pitch before passing it. Well done again girls #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 3/4 football team that tonight took part in the Meadows cup. The team was a mix of boys that play regular football and 4 boys that were playing their first ever competitive football match. The team drew their first game 0-0 despite having lots of opportunities to win the match. The 2nd match was more end to end and despite us having chances ourselves to score, our opponents scored 2 well worked goals to win the match 2-0. We knew our toughest match was yet to come when we were up against Meadows that had won both their previous games convincingly. The boys went 2-0 down early on in the game but showed great team spirit to get the game back to 2-2. Meadows then scored with only a minute left but our boys never gave up and carried on trying their best right to the end. What was most impressive today though was how our boys supported each other and encouraged the boys that were playing for the first time. Also well done to Mr Dunn for managing the team tonight so Mr James could referee the games. Well done #TeamGP

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that today visited the amazing Lilleshall Sports Centre to take part in the Crossbar Cup. Unfortunately the boys lost in the semi final of the plate competition in extra time but they all had a great time playing #TeamGP
Well done to our four Year 3/4 children that this afternoon took part in the Telford & Wrekin Mini Olympics Festival. The children were teamed up with other schools and had to take part in 8 different activities. They all had a great time and arrived back at school very tired and sweaty #TeamGP
