Over the Christmas holidays, boys in Year 9 who have shown an interest in studying GCSE PE completed a project.
The project focussed on a range of topics taken from the GCSE syllabus including data analysis and body systems. This included explaining who and why you would select in a rugby team, choosing between Usain Bolt and Chris Froome. Boys put in a huge amount of effort on the projects with many boys doing more than was asked. However, the top three boys who received prizes all produced work of excellent quality, including both quantitative and qualitative data.
Well done to:
Third- Lewis R
Second- Harvey G
First- Oliver F
The Under 18 table tennis team played Durham School in our gym on Monday night.
In probably the highest standard of table tennis we've witnessed in our school, the boys did fantastically well to secure a terrific win. It was very tight all night between the teams but after 85 games, NSB came out on top by just five games, 45 to 40!
Team members: Dan B, Jose B, Bayley C, Cole C, Myles H, Toby Mc, Sunny S, Tim S, Andrew T and Craig W.
The Under 16 football team went into an early lead, playing away at Ashington on the artificial pitch, thanks to a stunning left foot stike from Charlie J. The team worked well together to keep the opposition at bay for the rest of the first half, thanks to some excellent saves from Harvey M in goal.
The second half could have been a completely different story if the boys had taken any of their three clear cut chances that came within five minutes of each other, early on. Unfortunately, they didn't and, not long later, NECA scored twice in quick succession. Despite their best efforts the score remained 2-1. There was very little between the teams with Patrick C, Lucas H, Myles H and Will S all playing particularly well.
