Seven-aside football finals

On Friday, our Y56 seven-aside football team attended the HSFA finals. This was an immensely difficult competitions. Over 300 schools entered, and on this night the top ten teams were there. This included three teams from Hull: Christopher Pickering, Victoria Dock and Eastfield.

It was a difficult night for our boys. The first half of the first game was closely contested but Kirkella eventually took a 2-0 victory. Our second game against Lyall Marsden was even harder but the boys worked hard and made improvements. Sadly, this match finished 4-0. In the final group game, our boys scored their first goals courtesy of Alfie Maskell and Ewan Millet, and went on to win the game. Unfortunately it was too little, too late; our team didn’t progress to the semi finals.

This was a very hard lesson for our team to learn having found goal scoring easy in previous competition. But with the Y6 and Y5 five-aside competitions looming, more goals are sure to follow. Chin up and well done!

(L-R): Harry M (c), Charlie B, Alfie M, Matthew S, Vinnie H, James C, Nico A & Ewan M.

Mr. Arridge reading results: 3rd in our group. 

Plenty of family support: Alfie Maskell and his cousin Noah. 

Hull Active Schools Badminton Final

After finishing third in their qualifying tournament, our team of Y6 boys attended the Hull Active Schools timed badminton finals yesterday afternoon.

The competition was incredibly high and our boys have worked hard in practises between competitions. Eventually they finished seventh but had an excellent time regardless. They used this as an opportunity to improve and did a fantastic job of representing the school.

Well done boys!

(L-R): Oliver H, Ewan M, Harry N, Callum D & Harry M. 

Seven aside finals: POSTPONEMENT

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 7 aside finals have been postponed until January 12th 2018.

Sorry for any inconveniences.

A fantastic afternoon of Badminton

Children in Y56 have been working very hard on their badminton skills lately in preparation for the Hull Active Schools timed badminton championships.

In this variation of the game, teams of five players (ranked 1-5) play one-on-one for two minutes until all players have had a turn, meaning games last 10 minutes. After this time, the team with with the highest aggregate score is the winner.

Our children all worked very hard all afternoon and continually improved, had fun and were incredibly supportive of each other. From 16 teams, our C team finished in 12th, our B team had some VERY close games and eventually finished 6th. However, our A team reached the semi-finals but lost to a very good Eastfield team (who went on to win the final). Our A team then went on to win the play off final, meaning they finished a fantastic third and qualify for the finals night on December 8th!

Well done children!

A Team (L-R): Harry N, Harry M, Callum D, Ewan M & Oliver H.

B Team (L-R): Ella L, Sienne L, Maisie M, Tommy J & Reanie H.

C Team (L-R): Ashleigh Clark, Talitha D, Lewis C, Melody T & Emily L.

A, B & C Teams having a fantastic time 

EFL Football Kids Cup

Last night some of our Y4, 5 & 6 boys attended the EFL Kids Cup Football competitions. This is a very high pressure competition as the overall winner gets to represent Hull at the grand final held at Wembley Stadium.

Unfortunately, we did not qualify for a chance to reach Wembley after some very tough group games against Cavendish and Cowick. However, our boys did show some great team spirit and this was a good opportunity to practise ready for the seven aside finals in a few weeks.

Rugby World Cup!

Y56 have been getting very excited about the Rugby World Cup, so much so that we had a go at creating our own ‘Haka’ at after school rugby club!


Last week our children attended the Hull Active Schools inter-school cross country championships. These children were selected because they finished in the top 32 in our intra-house races held at school a few weeks ago.

For us, the day comprised of four races: girls B, boys B, girls A and finally boys A. The A races were ran by our top 6 intra-house finishers and they had the chance of qualifying for the county finals!

The results on the day were fantastic in both the B and A races. In the girls A race, Tamzin L finished 5th with Macy P finishing 8th which meant automatic qualification to the county finals. However, this wasn’t our only success. In the boys A race, Harry M, Nico A and Luca A also finished in the top ten (5th, 6th and 7th) meaning we already had five county final qualifications.

The unknown result on the day was the team events. In all races, the first four runners from each school formed that school’s A team, the next four B team and so on. The finishing positions of these runners are added up and compared to other schools. These results often take a week to come in so children had to wait patiently to see if how they had done.

We were not disappointed! CP have won the team event on both the boys and girls A races!! In the B races, CP wont the A, B, C and D races in both the boy and girls!

These are incredible results and we are very proud to be taking two teams to the county finals to represent Hull!

Girls A Team (L-R): Macy P, Lexi S, Tamzin L, Mya Mc, Brooke W & Indiana H.

Boys A Team (L-R): Nico A, Harry M, Willian G, Luca A, Martin J, Alfie M.



Tonight our boys got their football season underway by winning the Hull Active Schools 7-aside football qualifiers. The boys played exceptionally well, winning all of their group games without conceding a goal. In the final game, an early goal eventually led to extra-time. With no-goals scored, penalties followed.

Top-scorer Alfie Maskell settled the boys down by scoring the first penalty and things got even better when star keeper Matthew Southwick saved the next two shots. A few wide shots and post collisions followed, but CP were the eventual winners and go on to the Grand Finals on December 1st.

This was the first outing for captain Harry Maskell, who worked hard in the middle and partnered up with cousin  Alfie; enabling to score an incredible amount of goals!

Well done boys.
