Inter House Challenge

20th October 2016

Part of our work on Wellbeing is working together in houses to develop teamwork and friendship. With sportsmanship thrown in as well, a whole school inter house sport events seemed the right way to go.

Well done to all those who took part.

Rugby – What a Result

12th October 2013…..The William Amory wins tournament.

Memories of last years CADSSA tournament were flooding back, quite literally. The torrential downpours and freezing winds we played through in May looked likely to repeat themselves as we looked out of the window this morning. But luckily the rain eased off and we were able to play on the dry, if windy, Longton Rugby Clubs all weather surface.

This time against the Blythe Bridge School Sports Association, our first match against Meir Heath was a draw. Happily after that we were able to each team to reach the semifinal.

Finding ourselves against Meir Heath again, we were able to get the upper hand. In a thrilling match we eventually struck victorious to win the cup.

Well done to the team. Regretfully Mr Wilken was not able to attend but thanks to Miss Carson for coaching the team and to Mr Edwards of Blythe High for organising such a brilliant event.

This picture is from a previous event. As soon as we get a picture of the team with the cup we shall post it.



Athletics Tournaments

July 2013. The William Amory take part in not one but two tournaments.

We are very pleased to be part of two school sports associations – CADSSA and BBDSA as this means we get twice the sporting opportunities to most schools.

CADSSA put on it’s usual tournament at the Northwood stadium on the 8th of July. With over 10 schools represented and something like 200 children, the event went brilliantly as it always does. Mr Martin’s (previous headteacher of The William Amory) voice over the tannoy brought back fond memories for many of our pupils – but not too fond we hope!
Our girls, once again, came a very creditable fourth (we won last year – no pressure then girls) with the boys not quite being able to match their success.
We had some individual winners including the distance, shot put, long jump and 100m.

…But then, three days later we took part in the Blythe Bridge tournament at the High School.
I’m pleased to announce that our team did exceptionally well with everyone getting a place in the top three in each of the events and many of the team coming home with golds.
The tournament didn’t have any awards for the outright winning school but we felt confident that it would have been ours for the taking.

Well done girls and boys.

Sports Day

21st June 2013

The William Amory finally managed to get a sports day after quite a few attempts over the last two years. And in the end, the weather was just perfect for the occasion.

The four houses competed neck and neck throughout the afternoon and in the end first and second place were just a few points apart, with third and fourth also fighting each other for bronze.

However, in the end Topaz won the overall cup so a particular well done to them although every child deserves a pat on the back.

And not just children…parents as well. There have been complaints of stiff legs from one or two parents but well done to all of those who took part.


Silly socks help raise money.

t-funrun01-0513Unusually, the weather held off for our Silly Sock Fun Run.

Starting at 2.30, the children took the chance to raise money for the school by running around the school field. The initial charge left only a few with stitches but everyone gave it their all and we saw some children running for the full period.

Records included a handful of children running over 35 laps but the highest score was 39.

Thanks to parents and the PTFA for all their support and we hope to let you know very shortly how much money was raised. t-funrun02-0513


With all the celebrations that were going on, you’d think we’d won the season. But well done to both our teams today against St Peter’s.

The B team did a fantastic job against children 2 or 3 years older.

But well done to the A team – we finally won a match. Jason had a pair of very well deserved goals. Tyenam also deserved a goal but it wasn’t to be.

Brilliant boys – well done!
