Another Y7 managerial casualty as strong St marys team overpower inexperienced Sirius boys
St Marys 8 Sirius 2
It started poorly with 4 boys in the squad not turning up. Captain and star centre back Bibby had to go in goal. Against a St Marys team with several Hull City and League 1 Sunday players Sirius tried hard but couldn’t get possession of the ball. Leon Dalee had an excellent game at centre back but the midfield struggled to track runners and St Marys were 3 up by half time. It would have been 7 if not for wonder saves from Bibby. Two quick St Marys goals didn’t demoralise the Sirius boys as late squad replacement Gould took advantage of a goalkeeper error to register for Sirius. This energised the boys and Blackham delivered a great ball from the left for Shooter to finish. 5-2. The comeback was on. 3 late St Marys goals ruined that.

Massive thanks to Ryan Carrington and Jimmy Burgess for taking the warm up. Thanks to Alex Sherwood for not mentioning Rovers once.
The night was soured when a group of Sirius teachers (Basile / Smith) started chanting ‘sacked in the morning’ in the car park.
Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.
Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.
The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5.
The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!
For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
