Tough Match

Tough Match

Well done to our Year 6 girls football team that tonight won 3-1 against a very good Ladygrove team. Tonight was the first time our girls had gone a goal behind in a match in over 2 years but they showed what a great team they are to bounce back and score 3 to win the match. It took the girls a while to adjust to the extremely wide pitch and this restricted our chances. We must of had at least 15 Corners in the first half but the pitch was so wide we struggled to get it any where near our opponents goal from these. Well done again girls, super proud as always.

P.S Mr Thorpe must be our lucky charm as we were losing 1-0 and within 3 minutes of Mr Thorpe arriving we were winning 3-1.

Year 5/6 Friendly

Year 5/6 Friendly

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight played against Hollinswood Primary School. This was the first time some of the girls had played this year and for some the first time they had ever played in a football match. We couldn’t be any prouder of the girls tonight, despite conceding early on in the game they didn’t give up and came so close to scoring a few times. Hollinswood has one girl that was absolutely fantastic and scored a hat trick in the first half, but our girls were determined not to let her score another in the second half and they achieved that with the defence being solid and our goalkeeper pulling off some great saves again. Well done #TeamGP

Amazing Achievement

Amazing Achievement

Well done to our Year 5/6 Netball team that tonight competed in the T&W netball finals. The team had to play two group matches and the team that finished top of the group went through to the final. The first game was against Redhill and the game was end to end with both teams having lots of chances to score. After the 2nd third the game was locked at 1-1 but Redhill scored early in the final third to take a 2-1 lead. Grange Park never gave up though and soon the match was back level at 2-2. Then with the final throw of the match Redhill scored to win 3-2. It was always going to be difficult against a good team but this was made even harder when one of their players got injured so their defender who looked near enough impossible to get past played in DF for the 2nd and 3rd third instead of rotating. This meant we had to try and compete for 2nd place in the group. Grange Park got off to a flying start and were 4-0 against Newport after the first third. The 2nd and 3rd third were a lot closer and the final was 6-3. This meant Grange Park were through to the 3rd vs 4th play off against Apley Wood. This game was another close one but Grange Park ended up winning 2-1 to finish the tournament in 3rd place. An absolutely amazing achievement. Well done #TeamGP

Year 4 Kwik Cricket Competition

Year 4 Kwik Cricket Competition

Well done to our Year 4 Cricket Team that competed in the Telford & Wrekin tournament this morning. This was the first time any of our children had taken part in a kwik cricket competition and we had a few nervous children on the way but they were absolutely amazing throughout the whole event. We finished 2nd in our group and just missed out on qualifying to the semi finals by a few runs. The children all said they had a fantastic time and can’t wait to play again. We couldn’t be any prouder of you all #TeamGP

County Cup Success

County Cup Success

Amazing performance from our Year 3/4 girls football team that tonight qualified to the next stage of the Shropshire Schools County Cup. The girls played 3 matches, winning two 1-0 and drawing the other match 1-1. The girls were absolutely amazing in all 3 of the matches and they had to be on the top of their games tonight because we played some very strong teams.

Couldn’t be any prouder of the girls and their determination tonight.

Unfortunately all the team aren’t in the picture #TeamGP

Boccia Champs

Boccia Champs

Well done to our 3 teams that competed in the T&W Boccia competition this afternoon. All 3 of our teams were amazing but have to give special mention to GP Team 3 that won their group and then went on to win another 3 matches to be crowned the T&W champions. Over 30 teams entered the event today. GP Team 3 will now represent T&W in the County Finals next year. GP team 1 were very unlucky not win their final match and GP Team 2 finished joint top of their group but missed out on going through to the quart finals on points difference by just 1 point. Very proud of all our teams this afternoon #TeamGP
