Sporting Achievements

Handball Success

In the past two years, we have introduced the sport of handball into the curriculum. This has resulted in much interest and enthusiasm for this fast, dynamic exciting game. It is a blend of basketball, football and volleyball.

The new GCSE PE has specified handball as being an assessed activity, which gave us the justification to develop this further.

This year, the Under 13 boys were given the opportunity to represent Northamptonshire in the East Midlands Finals where they competed at the Derby Arena against other schools from Notts, Derby and Leics.

Competing against a number of schools, the squad grew in confidence and demonstrated some fantastic defensive and offensive plays. Isaac King (8S) in goal proved to be particularly adept at stopping shots. The highlight came in the last two games when they played the finalists and went 2-0 up within minutes. Trinity Catholic School (Notts) who were the overall winners, used their experience and came back to win in the last 30 seconds 3-2. The game against the other finalist, Rushey Mead from Leics, saw them draw 2-2.

The sqaud finished in third place overall in the East Midlands - a result of which they all should feel very proud. We look forward to seeing how the game further develops in school in the coming years.

Squad: Daniel Moore 8C, Michael Owusu-Afriyie 8C, Eashey Rashford-Hewitt 8C,

Year 9 District Athletics Championships

Students competed in the annual Year 9 Athletics Championships held in Corby last week. There were some fantastic individual performances which resulted in Bishop winning the overall title of District Champions.

In the girls' competition, a tense affair saw Bishop come first by a slim margin of only two points. This meant that every performance, whatever position, counted towards the final result.

Meanwhile in the boys' competition, only 8 points split the 1st from 3rd place. The boys achieved an awesome 3rd place again with some stand out performances. Of particular note was Harvey Freeman's 1500m race where he achieved 1st place by 100m and broke the District record at the same time with a time of 4.51. Congratulations to all the athletes on this year's performances.
