ISA National Swimming Competition

A team of swimmers from Forest Park Preparatory School and Forest Preparatory School in Timperley travelled to The Independent Schools Association (ISA) National Swimming Competition, held at the London Aquatics Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on Saturday 21 January.

A total of five children, all aged between eight and ten, were selected to represent the North team following qualification through the North Regional Finals.

Cheered on by proud parents, families and friends, our young swimmers took to the Olympic pool in front of around 3,000 spectators, against fierce competition from independent schools from across the country.  The children were awarded four medals, helping the Junior North team to overall victory:

Well done to Ben (Y5) who won a gold medal in the Year 5 Boys Freestyle Relay and Megan (Y6) who won a bronze medal in the Year 6 Girls Freestyle Relay.   Vincent (Y4) competed in the Year 4 Boys Freestyle Relay but just missed out on the medal places with a valiant effort.

Congratulations to all of the children that took part in the competition. It was a truly amazing day and a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to compete at this level and to swim in the Olympic pool. The children were all so calm in front of such a large audience and we are very proud of them all.

Trafford Sports Hall Athletics

Year 5 & 6 took part in the Trafford Sports Hall Athletics at Ashton on Mersey School last week.  There were six teams who competed in a variety of track and field events in heat 5. Last year we were unfortunate to finish sixth so we set ourselves the challenge of beating sixth place.  We are pleased to announce we smashed our target by coming in third place!  When we compete in Trafford competitions it is a big challenge for Forest Park as we are the smallest school so this was an excellent achievement.

Thank you to parents for coming along to support us!

Under 9's Football Team

The under 9 football team took part in their first ever competitive football match this week in the ISA Knockout Cup.  We were drawn to play Abbey Gate College, who kindly hosted the match.  The team started exceedingly well by going into half time 4-0 up, but there was a slight difference in the second half performance due to a downward slope going against us and so we ended up drawing 5-5 at full time. After extra time we unfortunately ended up losing the match. 

Miss Booth received an email from Abbey Gate’s coach saying, “Just a quick note to say how great your team were today. It really was an incredible open game, physical but fair. As referee it was tough to keep up!  I cannot remember such a good game at this level and would love to play your team again. Your visiting parents were lovely too and everyone was a credit to Forest Park.”

Under 11's Football Team

12-0!!! Do we need to say anymore!?  Congratulations to all the boys in the team but especially to the goal scorers, Josh (Y4) who scored 6, Archie (Y4) who scored 3, James (our captain - Y6) who scored 2 and Seb (Y6) who scored his first ever goal for Forest Park!

We have now been drawn to play against The Grange School and will keep you updated on the fixture date.

Beech House Cross Country

“Mud, glorious mud” certainly does sum up the day!  We started by going on a walk of the route where Mr Tucker and some of the children decided to give names to different parts of the course.  ‘Lose a Shoe Corner’, ‘Swamp Alley’ and ‘Heart Attack Hill’ were some of their ideas.  The children were slightly dirty before they had even started the race.  Every child who competed managed to complete the tricky course.  Some of them however did not finish the course still wearing their trainers! Some finished with one trainer, and some with none – mentioning no names!

As ever we were extremely proud of all the children and once again thank you to all the parents who came along to support us in not the best conditions.
