Published on 6th March 2019



Well done to all students involved in extracurricular activities over the past term at Fernwood. Your dedication and resilience through competitions has been tremendous. Recently, there has been some fantastic achievements from students across a range of sporting activities.

  • Four students from year 7 and 8 represented the county in the regional team table tennis championships at Bradford Grammar school. The team ended up reaching the semi-finals in a hard fought tournament.
  • Seven year 7 students participated in the city individual table tennis championships with Albert Biryukova-Wang winning silver and Jodie Barber winning bronze medals.
  • The year 7 boys and girls badminton teams remained unbeaten through their competitions to both win gold medals at the city championships. This completes a fantastic year for students representing the school as the year 9 boys and girls teams, year 10/11 girls teams won gold medals and the year 11 boys team won silver medals.
  • Year 8 boys and girls sports hall athletics teams won gold medals at the city finals and will compete at the county tournament later in the term.
  • Year 7 boys and girls sports hall athletics team won bronze medals at the city finals.
  • Year 7 and year 8 girls football teams both won silver medals at the City indoor 5 a side championships.
