Yesterday evening, pupils from Kings’ Park Academy, Manorside Academy and QPA took part in an Ambitions Academies Trust inter-academy competition. The pupils played each other in netball and basketball, with all pupils showing inter-dependence, compassion and optimism within their play.
QPA’s next Team Tagg adventure was an away game at Bethany school. Mr Petterfer loaded up the minibus as the sun shone and we were off. In an exciting, closely matched game, the super squad demonstrated their phenomenal inter-dependence once more. Half time saw a tight and tense scoreboard, 1-0 to QPA. After a further two quarters, with all manner of high quality passing, defending and leaping, victory was ours. The final score stood at 6-2. Well done Team Tagg!
Yesterday saw the High Five netball squad A.K.A. ‘Team Tagg’ face their first ever inter-school netball tournament at Bournemouth School for Girls. Over twenty local schools took part in the exciting event on a beautiful, if somewhat chilly, afternoon.
After only a few practice sessions, the committed team of Year Six girls secured their first victory in their opening match! As the afternoon unfolded the team demonstrated their strength of character: grit whilst facing Arctic like temperatures; adaptability when continuously changing pitches and rotating team positions; optimism as they constantly remained positive, even in the face of Olympian like opposition.
The whole squad were a credit to QPA and it was wonderful to watch the quality of their game progress throughout the afternoon. The next match for the team is on Thursday 8th February. If there are any pupils wishing to join the team then please see either Miss Tagg or Mrs Wallis.

Today the Year 6 boys took part in the Predator football tournament at the Littledown Centre. In total, 23 schools attended the competition. Although we didn’t progress to the semi finals, the level of effort and teamwork from the boys was outstanding. Most impressive was the maturity the boys showed. They shared captaincy, chose positions and took it in turns to be substitutes, all independently. Our goals were scored by Dylan and Darren. Next up is the league fixtures which will start in the next week or two.
We had glorious weather for Sports Day today and the children participated incredibly well throughout. We were all really pleased with the character shown by the pupils: grit, compassion, courage, optimism and trust. Congratulations to the Year 5 staff who won the staff race. We will find out which house won the overall competition in tomorrow’s assembly.
Congratulations to the Year 4 football team for their 7-1 victory over Stourfield Juniors. Great teamwork was shown by all.
The football match this afternoon ended in a 5-5 draw between QPA and Jewell Academy. The players supported each other incredibly well and a high level of sportsmanship was shown throughout. Well done to Max – man of the match.
