Well done Deklan!

DekEnormous congratulations to Deklan Hill in Year 11, who was selected for the Cheshire Schools' under-16 squad, following two rounds of high-quality trials during the summer term.

He has clearly really impressed the coaches during the trials and early matches, as he has been included in the squad for all three of the fixtures thus far.

Cheshire won their first friendly 6-0 in Shropshire, followed by a 2-2 draw with Lancashire in the Northern Counties League and a 3-2 win over Staffordshire in the first round of the National Inter-County Trophy and Deklan displayed his superb adaptability over these games, playing in several positions including central midfield.

Good luck to Deklan and the County team in all their forthcoming matches; the PE Dept and the school are very proud of your achievement!

Congratulations Kathryn!

KathrynSchofieldNov14On Saturday night Kathryn Schofield swapped her trisuit for a dress to attend the Triathlon England Northwest Region Awards Night at Lancashire Manor Hotel.
Kathryn was there to receive her certificate of Achievement for coming 12th in the North West, and completed the series by doing 8 or more events in the series.  The certificate was presented to her by Katie Hewison, European Duathlon Champion.
This was Kathryn's first full year at doing the T3 age (13-14 years) 400 metre swim, 8k bike ride and 3k run, in which Kathryn did 10 events in the series plus an open water aquathlon at Crosby marina (300 metre swim and 4km run) - Kathryn came 2nd in that event.
Kathryn has now been asked to train with the GB Triathlon Academy on 22nd November and 7th December at Salt Arye Lancaster.

Well done Kathryn!

Ofsted Action Plan

Thank you to parents, carers and all who attended last week's Parents' Meeting regarding St.Chad's Ofsted report. The meeting was very positive and, quite rightly, constructively critical. As promised at the meeting, the Ofsted Action Plan agreed with the local authority is now on the school website in the Parents' section (the plan could change after the HMI comes in for the first monitoring visit) and we are currently compiling the large number of post-it questions and the school's response to them. The latter will go on the website as soon as possible. Once again, thank you for your support!
