Great work from the Year 11 boys badminton team on Tuesday 3rd December, who despite not qualifying for the county games finals put in fantastic performances against Idsall, Bridgnorth Endowed and a dominant William Brookes team. Great performances all round from Jude, Sam, Huw and Harry.
Harley is Karate World Champion!
Year 7 pupil Harley Cottis recently attended the World Kickboxing and Karate Union (WKU) World Championships in Austria. Harley has been practising karate for a few years and is the England team captain for his squad, recently achieving his 2nd Dan black belt.
Whilst in Austria, Harley competed in several categories and was up against some tough competition from countries all over the world. He won Gold in Kumite, Gold in Karate Hard Style and Gold in Traditional. Next year the World Championships will be held in Canada and we wish Harley all the best – well done Harley on your outstanding sporting achievement!

Well done to the Y10 Boys Handball team who put in a fantastic performance at the East Shropshire Competition last night. After a feisty game against Idsall to start us off we put in dominating performances against William Brookes and Bridgnorth Endowed to secure a close second spot overall. Great work lads.
The year 8 rugby team took part in the district competition. In the two games the boys played brilliantly, winning against Church Stretton School and narrowly losing out in their final game, to come second in the district.
Goals Galore as the Girls Score Four!
Students in Year 7 made a fantastic start to their football season at Oldbury Wells as they competed against Lacon Childe School. In a competitive match on a very cold Wednesday evening, the girls fought hard in the first half to gain control of the ball.
The harsh weather conditions made it very difficult, but soon Oldbury started to dominate using the space on the wings well and driving forward towards goal. With Freya Jones up front, the Lacon defence were never able to settle and this was demonstrated when Freya scored the cheekiest of goals using the 'rabona' technique.
With a 3-0 lead at half-time, the team pushed for more in the second half and continued to control the game. Frankie Bowen put the icing on the cake with a thunderous strike into the roof of the net.
The final score was 4-0, however the attitude from both teams and excitement of the game was the thing that stood out.
Well done to our Year 7 cross country runners who took part in the East Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin meet at Idsall. It was a cold afternoon and a slippy course but they all made it round! Special congratulations to Judd Aspin and Mayah Hill, who lead our teams across the line!
Well done to the Year 7 B-team footballers, who put in fantastic performances at the East Shropshire tournament at William Brookes School. Team 1 were undefeated and kept a clean sheet in every game so hopefully they will qualify for the County Games Finals!!
