A busy sporting term finishes with Badminton finals!

This afternoon saw CP attend our last sporting event of 2018: the Hull Badminton Team Timed Championships.

A couple of weeks ago our boys finished second in their qualifying event, meaning they progressed to the Hull finals. With the qualifying event being the only time four of our five boys had ever played badminton, we knew it was going to be a challenge. However, our boys saw this as an opportunity to learn and develop their skills and were happy to finish 5th in the City: an achievement you should be proud of boy! Well done!

Badminton finals (L-R): Lucas F, William G, Charlie B, Vinnie H & Kayden M. 

Tonight our boys played Brough in the second round of the Humberside 9 a side cup. Having beaten Kirkella B in the first round 5-0, we knew it was going to be a challenging game. A further challenge was that our boys hadn’t yet played a game as a 9 a side team due to a bye in the first round of the cup.

The game started well and some quick passing and through the middle of the field saw our boys finish the first half 4-0 up with all goals being scored by captain Alfie M. The second half saw more goals from winger Lucas F, a classy goal from striker Brooklyn B and this worldie of a goal from captain Alfie. Our final goal was scored by debutant Jason LL who had a fantastic game and really stood out for his energy, enthusiasm and skill. Well done also to Leighton E who made his footballing debut and had an excellent game.

Towards the end of the second half, a tiring Brought side did score a late conciliation goal but struggled to keep pace with out boys on the edges. Tonight was a brilliant display of football from both sides with excellent sportsmanship throughout. Well done boys and good luck in the next round.

An excellent game from both teams! Thanks Brough!


Tonight our football success continued when our Y5 boys matched the girl’s performance, qualifying for the HAS 5 a side finals.

On a cold night, our newly formed Y5 team had a great start against Gillshill and in an 8 minute game had them beat 6 goals to 2. Our next game was again Neasden, and after having just watched them beat Thanet 7-0, we knew this was going to be a tough game.

The match started awfully with a goal being conceded within the opening few seconds. After a few minutes the boys equalised. This gave the our team a huge boost and they began playing some quality football. After a few minutes, the score was 3-1 and our boys were on top and were not given Neasden any time on the ball thanks to strong work across the pitch from Kayden. A good strike from Neasden saw them bring the score back to 3-2, but a late penalty, taken by captain Oliver M, saw the game put to bed – our boys had won!

Full of confidence, our boys stormed into their final game against Thanet. With some excellent play up front from Reggie P, Oliver M and Archie G, our lads came away with a 7-0 victory.

This is a very promising team with lots of talent. Well done boys! Good luck in the finals next year.

Y5 Superstars (L-R): Kayden A, Leighton E, Kalo B, Reggie P, Oliver M (c) and Archie G. 

Girls Qualify for 5 a side finals!

Our girl’s football team continued to build on their success tonight when they qualified for the Hull Active Schools 5 a side finals.

Tonight was the qualifying event for the finals next year meaning they needed to finish top of their group. The start of the competition didn’t go so well. The girls were winning 1-0 with 60 seconds on the clock but managed to concede 2 goals! However, they bounced back from this self-inflicted defeat to beat Bricknell and incredible 8-2. Their final game was against Francis Askew. This was an brilliant game of football played in ever-worsening conditions. The score was close throughout but our girls managed to edge out a 4-2 victory.

This put CPPS and Francis Askew on equal points, but the 8 goals scored in the previous game saved the girls and they finished top of their group on goal difference!

A huge well done to these girls who are improving game on game. Special mentions to keeper Melody T who was exceptional and captain Emily L who kept the team motivated, was solid at the back and scored this amazing goal.

Good luck in the finals!

Humberside 7 a side Finals

Tonight our boys represented Hull along with Gillshill, Spring Cottage and Biggin in the Humberside seven a side county finals. This competition saw the four best teams from every county go head to head in an attempt to reach the national finals in a few months.

It was a tough night out for our boys. The first game finished with a 1-0 loss at the whistle, but a change of referee decision saw a stunning free kick goal from Alfie A allowed so the game finished 1-1. The boys lost their second game 2-0 which meant, barring a huge goal difference in the final games to be played, they couldn’t progress from the group stages.

The night ended on a positive with a 2-1 win and the boys should remember that they in the top four teams in Hull! Well done!

(L-R): Lucas F, Kyle L, Oliver M, Kalo B, Brooklyn B, Vinnie H, Alfie M (c), Charlie B. 


Hull FC Foundation Training Session

This evening our after school rugby club were invited to go and train with some Hull FC players and coaches at their Youth Performance Centre on Pickering Road. These children have worked hard in all weathers to play a game they love, alongside Brad from Hull FC. This was Brad’s final session of the term and it was a fantastic treat.

We started with a quick brief in the centre’s common room before moving into the sports hall to take part in a number of games and activities. One activity was on the tackle bags with Sika Manu (first team player, Challenge Cup winner, World Cup winner & Tongan Captain) and Josh Bowden (first team player and double Challenge Cup winner). The children loved this activity and enjoyed running hard against some talented professional players.

This was followed by a quick question and answer session with the players. Finally, our children were all given an FC water bottle and other merchandise which the players signed.

This was a very special event and created some fantastic memories for our children. Huge thanks to Brad, Richard, Sam and all other other guys from the FC Foundation for inviting us along!

A very interesting question and answer session. 

Today our house captains attended an educational event organised by the charity Show Racism the Red card. The charity promotes the tacking of racism in society by engaging children with high profile sports like football.

This event was provided by Tigers Trust and supported by Hull City. Throughout the day, our Captains attended a number of workshops learning about racism and hate crimes. They also had a tour of the stadium and met City legend Dean Windass.

This was an excellent event and we hope that our House Captains can promote what they have learnt with the children of out school.

Charlie won himself some goodies for his hard work!

Tigers Trust Seven a side Girl’s Football

This evening our girls football season got underway with the Tigers Trust girl’s seven a side competition.

This was the first time these girls had ever played with each other and they were excited to get on the pitch and give it a go! As this was the first outing for the team, our target was to improve a little each game.

Their first game was a narrow defeat to Neasden after a late towards the end of the game. Not a great start, but the girls remained positive and had several shots on target throughout the game.

Going into the second game against Spring Cottage A, the girl’s target was to score a goal, regardless of the finishing result. This second game saw some huge improvements and the girl’s not only got their goal but won the game 1-0 (thanks to some excellent defensive work from captain Emily L).

Going into the third game (Woodlands), the girls were really growing in confidence and played amazingly well. As well as organising in defence, Emily L attacked well, running the ball out of her own half a number of times and setting up Talitha D for several goals. The game eventually finished 5-0 to Christopher Pickering with Talitha scoring all 5 goals.

Going into their final game again Spring Cottage B, our girls were working brilliantly together and enjoying their football. The game finished 2-0 with a super goal coming from debutant Melody T. There was also some excellent midfield play from Leyla H. A special mention to keeper Tamzin who managed to concede only 1 goal all night!

These girls had a fantastic time and eventually finished second! Well done to all of the girls who attended and congratulations to Neasden for your well deserved win!

Thanks to Tigers Trust for organising and a huge well done girls!

HAS Cross Country Championships!

As usual, our first half term finished with another fantastic cross country even courtesy of Hull Active Schools. This year sixty children got to represent their school in the boys and girls races after finishing high in the intra-house event with the top six boys and girls running in the A race.

On the day there were some fantastic results with Ella P finishing second in the girls Y56 B race and Brooklyn B repeating this in the Boys B race. In the Girls A race, Tamzin L and Aimee W finished in the top ten meaning they automatically qualify for the county finals.

The rest of the results will be compiled by the organisers over half term!

Well done children – you did the school proud once again!

Rugby League Grand Finals

Tonight our boys rugby team attended the Hull Active Schools tag rugby Grand Final. Five other team across the city were there to battle it out in a series of tough games. The competitions started well for the boys with a win over St. Richards. However, a defeat to Spring Cottage saw the boys places in a 3rd/4th play off game with Eastfield which the boys unfortunately lost.

This was still a fantastic effort from our children who can count themselves amongst the top five teams in the City! Well done to the overall winners, Ing Primary, who beat Spring Cottage in a thrilling final.

Full results to follow (and Go Pro Footage!)
