British Cycling Visit

This week we were lucky to have a visit from Chris Young from British Cycling who came in to do some cycling with the students. The students were able to develop their skills as well as trying out some new games and challenges. Remember for those who want to, there is a cycling club after school on a Monday!


Year 8 in Cricket County Cup Action

The year 8 cricket team were in cup action against Ripon Grammar School this week and came oh so close to causing an upset. Scores below. It was a superb game and on another day could have so easily gone the other way. Nevertheless an amazing effort from the team!

Nidderdale 120-7 (20 overs) Isaac Light 23, Leo Wilson 50 not out

Ripon Grammar 121-6 (18 overs) Leo Wilson 4-8, Rachael Hattan 1 wicket

Cycling Club Begins

Monday after schools now has a new cycling club! This week saw the students setting up their own Cyclo-Cross course and getting timed riding them. Great fun and a great way of challenging and improve cycling skills. Every Monday straight after school until 4:45pm (just bring your bike and helmet)

Year 7s Football

The year 7 football team have a busy week this week! On Monday they travelled to Ripon Grammar School to play RGS and Outwood Academy in the league competition. There were some real positives to come out of the fixtures including some strong defensive work, excellent composure on the ball and the ability to play out from the back. The results didn’t all go Nidds way but on another day it could have been so different

Nidderdale 0-0 Outwood Ripon

Nidderdale 1-3 Ripon Grammar School

Year 8 Football at Harrogate High

After 2 failed attempts to get the game played due to bad weather, the year 8 football team finally made the trip to Harrogate High School for their next league fixture. Although going down 3-1 (Freddie Howard with the goal) there were lots of positives to take from the game in cold and wet conditions. Man of the match (voted for by the lads) was shared between Ben Beresford and Jack Warne
