Climbing opportunity for girls.

Tenbury vs York 2016

Well done to the pupils who played against Manor School, York on the weekend.

The boy’s football game was an entertaining fixture. Tenbury took a 3-1 lead with goals from Adam Staples (x2) and Ben Everall . Manor eventually levelled with 8 minutes to go and looked like they’d go on to score the winning goal. However, Tenbury won a corner with minutes on the clock and a clever back heel flick from Ellis Wear who managed to direct the ball into the net. Tenbury won 4-3.

The girls had two matches, both of mixed teams. The one team won 17 and a half to 8, and the other team narrowly missed out by 2 rounders. The girls played amazingly and a special mention to Lola Wear who stepped in last minute and scored 3 rounders.

National Schools' Equestrian Association Show Jumping

Well done to Poppy Spriggs, Matilda Wall and Izzy Griffiths.

Last Saturday (17th June) , Poppy Spriggs made her debut outing for THOA at the NSEA show jumping at Kings, Bromyard.

Poppy had a great day, coming 6th in the 60cm class and qualifying for the winter grass roots championships.

Poppy rode beautifully in the 70cm but had an unlucky fence down, meaning she ended on 4 faults.
On Sunday (18th June), Matilda Wall rode lovely clear rounds in the 75cm class and  she came 5th, qualifying for the Championship plate at Keysoe.

Matilda also went on to come 2nd in the 85cm class and qualified for the Addington championship.

Izzy Griffiths rode a beautiful clear round in the 95cm and just missed the ribbons coming 7th. Unfortunately, a few poles rolled in the 1m 5 class.

They all had a great but busy weekend. Thank you to Claire Wall for her organisation and support for the team.

MVP - James Franklin

Also, The year 7 boys' football team won their first game against EMC last week(Tuesday 31st Jan) The result was 2-0.

Thanks to the captain, Adam Lewis, who wrote this match report:

'The game started quite evenly, with THOA and EMC both launching good attacks. THOA lined up defensively, with four at the back whereas EMC went with the usual 3. The turning point of the match came when Mckenzie Bytheway of THOA made a good run down the left wing and got tripped in the penalty box. The penalty was converted well by Jay Griffiths and put THOA 1-0 up.
A few minutes later THOA got a throw-in on the left flank and from it, Adam Lewis lobbed the keeper with a flick on header. For the rest of the first half EMC looked dangerous, close to scoring more than once.

The second half was dominated by THOA, who should've scored at least twice. In the end the game finished as a solid 2-0 for THOA, who will look forward to their next match against Lucton.'

UKSA Sailing trip update 3rd October - 7th October 2016


To view all the pictures from the week - click here

Today the group had a go at windsurfing. We started with some warm up games and getting used to holding the sail in the wind. Some board games (not snakes and ladders) were then used to develop the pupils' confidence on the water.

After lunch we then hit the water and started to windsurf. The conditions were very windy which made it very difficult to hold the sail. However, everyone did extremely well and by the end of the day everyone managed to stand up and move. Well done!
