KS3 Football Residential

A group of thirty seven Key Stage 3 students took part in a Football Premier League PE residential over the weekend.

They set off on Friday lunchtime with Ms Caisley, Mr Fisk, Mr Tarbotton and Mr Jassam for a full weekend of football.

They had a great start with all three teams winning their fixtures on Friday night. Year 7 won 8-1, Year 8 won 5-3 and Year 9 won 7-2 with all three teams playing some outstanding football. On Saturday, the boys had another jam-packed day of football, including a professional coaching session and a stadium tour of the Etihad Stadium. On Sunday they enjoyed another coaching session with professional coaches before heading to Turf Moor to watch Burnley against Arsenal.

Mr Fisk said: “The boys were outstanding throughout and a number of people we worked with commented that they were the best behaved group they had ever seen. They were a credit to Allerton Grange School.”
