Year 9 Netball team beat Winifred Holtby to become Hull Schools Winners
Year 9 Netball team beat Winifred Holtby to become Hull Schools Winners for the third year in a row!
Since the beginning of September the year 9 girls have played 12 netball matches against local schools to fight to keep their title of 'Hull School League Champions'. Competition this year was tough, as many schools in the area have girls representing Humberside County netball. Malet Lambert, who were runners up last year having several Humberside players. However, Sirius saw this as more ammunition and drive to want to win. During week 3 of the tournament Sirius smashed Malet with an 8-2 win.
Sirius then had their eye on Winifred Holtby who were rivals in the previous year. Holtby being our last match of the competition and were both on equal points due to neither team losing a game. The girls knew they had done enough to guarantee second place, but knew the win over Holtby would secure them the win. Every member of the team showed true passion and determination and came out with 6-5 victory. The girls were a credit to the academy and were worthy winners for the third year in row.
Team - Jamie Watson, Lucy Fielder, Emily Andrew, Mia Duke, Amelia Longden, Ellie Cone, Danielle Fulton, Chloe Garrod
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.
