We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Silver Mark Award. The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible. We look forward to applying once again this year!
Fancy a game? At Ranelagh, we offer Football Club at lunchtimes for children in Year 1 - Year 6, developing ball skills, sportsmanship and promoting a love of sport. There are also after school football clubs for children in Key Stage 2.
U11 Boys Football
Ranelagh U11 boys took part in the 7-a-side football tournament at Whitton on 3rd October. In total, the team played four matches with the highlights being:
- Narrowly losing 1-0 in games vs. Springfield and St Pancreas. The team were unlucky not to score in both these games, creating several chances!
- A fantastic 1-0 win against Tattingstone. Led by their Team Captain, Riley, who scored the winning goal, there were some amazing saves from Rilee in goal. The defence tackled hard and the midfield and strikers ran their socks off.
- Congratulations to Saida for being awarded 'Ranelagh Sportsmanship, Player of the Tournament'.
Well done to all the Ranelagh Team for giving their best and for shaking hands with the opposition after every match.
U11 Girls Football
Ranelagh U11 girls followed in the footsteps of the boys, taking part in the 7-a-side football tournament at Whitton on 15th October. In total, they played four matches, drawing against Handford Hall and Henley. The Ranelagh girls defense tackled hard with all the team showing great energy in every match. Our 'Golden Boot' winner was Takiyah for showing such fantastic sportsmanship.
Well done to all of the girls for giving their best and playing with a smile on their faces!
