Year 7 Boys Win the District Cup

Yesterday year 7 boys from the academy made their mark in regional football. They beat Bushey Meads 5-2 to become district champions. The boys were a credit to the academy and behaved impeccably. They were the model of good sportsmanship. Well done. 

Year 10 Boys Win the District Cup

Today, Bushey’s Year 10 Boys football team celebrated a win over Queens, the same team that beat them earlier In the season 3-1. A clinically precise cross for a header in, led to Bushey’s first goal. Our players ran down a free kick, which bounced off the keeper and was put it in the back of the net on the rebound for our second goal. The boys were 2-0 up at half time, with the goalkeeper only having touched the ball once. The second half was even more exciting. We gave away a penalty with two minutes to go and Queens converted it to make the score 2-1. In the last thirty seconds of the match one of our players ran from the half way line, saw the keeper off his line and scored one of the best goals of the season. We won 3-1. The boys were superb. Congratulations on winning the District Cup.

The Brilliant Club

A group of year 10 and 12 students attended the Brilliant Club this Friday. The students were all fantastic and represented us really well. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the launch of the programme and are looking forward to learning more in the tutorials. Year 10 are learning about clinical neuroscience and when humans begin to feel pain and Year 12 are learning about politics and voting trends focusing on whether to vote or not. The Brilliant Club encourages students from non-selective schools to apply for places at the prestigious Russell Group Universities.

Christmas Carol Concert
