On Wednesday 3 May 2017, the Year 8 South Hunsley ‘B’ football team played in the Humberside cup final against St Mary’s School. Unfortunately for the team, it wasn’t the result they wanted, finishing 7-3 to St Mary’s. However, we had an excellent start to the game with South Hunsley taking an early lead within the first 5 minutes with a goal from Ben Harrison. We continued to pressure St Mary’s which resulted to another goal also scored by Ben Harrison. South Hunsley played some great football showing a lot of heart, encouragement and determination which resulted to late consolation goal from Josh Parker. Just not enough to win the game, but a great effort by every player who continued to battle on until the end. Man of the match Adam Swift.
The U15 Girls football team have done amazingly well this year getting through to the last 2 in the country in the National Cup. The final is due to be played next Monday 15 May at Pride Park Stadium, Derby. We wish the girls all the best for the final next week after picking up the National trophy 2 years ago.
Year 8 Netball
Having qualified in 1st place at the East Riding Netball Tournament beating Beverley High School, Longcroft School, Cottingham High School, Hornsea School and The Weighton School the Year 8 Netball team went on to represent East Riding at the Humber School Games Level 3.
With two schools representing North Lincolnshire, two schools representing Hull and two schools representing East riding (South Hunsley and Beverley High) the competition was extremely difficult and each team had to play everyone twice in order to find the overall champions.
The girls played really well together throughout the day allowing us to use many different combinations in both attack and defence. With a last minute injury for Ellie Whitfield our defence had to deal with last minute changes. Holly Adams played exceptionally well as Goal Defence making interception and interception throughout every single game. Centre court players worked hard throughout the tournament to turn the balls over, feeding the attack who also played some very impressive netball scoring goal after goal and seeing some very high scores.

Our Sixth Form Basic Expedition Leaders (BELA) had a successful trip to the North Yorkshire Moors for their training weekend, which is in preparation of their assessment in July. Students spent the weekend camping and then planning and delivering their expeditions showing fantastic knowledge and leadership. Well done to all of those involved.
The Year 8 boys cricket team have had their first match of the year, unfortunately facing a strong Hymers side. Though the result didn’t go our way, it was a great learning experience for the whole team who faced a very tough and highly skilled opposition. Plenty of opportunities and more fixtures are planned in the diary for all year groups.
Primary School Events
Our primary school events have been continuing over the past few weeks and we recently held the annual primary school dance competition. The event was a huge success with a fantastic atmosphere from all the schools involved. We are now looking forward to several summer competitions that are currently being organised for the primary schools.
Sixth Form Sports Leaders
Our Sixth Form Sports Leaders have had a busy few weeks volunteering at several events including Inclusive Disability Sports and Primary Schools. All feedback from external providers has been very positive and their community work is a credit to the school. Our Higher Sports Leaders also took part in a ‘disability in sport’ CPD course and are all now fully qualified first aiders. Congratulations to all.
During the Easter Break, 12 Year 7 students travelled with South Cave Football Club to Wassenar in Holland to play some international football. The boys played extremely well despite the intense heat and managed to fight off all the competition and brought home the winners cup! They also visited Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam as part of the trip. Well done to all involved.
