Junior Girls & Infants - Spring Term Sports Report

It has been an incredibly busy Spring term regarding sporting achievements across the Infant and Junior Schools.

January

January started with the AJIS indoor athletics competition at Robin Park, Wigan.

Most of the 16 Under 11 girls competed at this event but due to the inclement weather, our competition had to be cut short.

The following week saw the Under 11 girls compete in the AJIS football tournament, hosted at St Bede’s College, Manchester. It was a bitterly cold day however our girls played with great enthusiasm, finishing 7th overall.

On Thursday 14th February, Bury Grammar School hosted its first Year 2 Football Festival and invited 10 Schools’ to participate on our 3G pitch.

There were over 90 Year 2 children from across Bury and other independent schools playing in the tournament. Our A team and B teams showed their skills and played with passion and pride.
