Footballers through to finals

A very excited group of boys left school on Wednesday, November 1 in the hope of winning a place in the area finals to be played at Harrogate Town's Football Ground on  November 15. The team played six matches in total and won five, placing them first overall.  This means they are through to the finals to be held at Harrogate. 


Runners shine at cross country

First day back after the half term a depleted squad of cross country runners set off from school to take part in this event.  Other years we have yielded full squads in each of the year groups from year 3 and year 4 but unfortunately this year we did not.  Despite this, all the children did give their utmost best performance on the very heavy underfoot course.  Congratulations to the Y5/Y6 girls team who came overall second. 


Swimmers gain a place in the finals

The swimming team set off early on Wednesday  September 27 to Ripon Spa Baths to take part in the Annual Swimming Gala. 

Eight other local Ripon schools had entered this gala and all eager to win a place in the Grand Final at the Hydro in October. 

Al the swimmers did extremely well in their respective races and shouted and cheered each other on, as you can imagine the noise must have been overwhelmingin the baths.  

Bishop Monkton won by a narrow margin of only two points, which means they have to do it all over again at the Grand Final at the Hydro in October.  Well done to you all.


Second place at cluster football 

Our first sporting event of the new school year took place at Baldersby St James to play cluster football..  The pitches were very small and there were a mix of teams (Y3-Y6) from the Ripon cluster.

The team played really well in all their games and looked great in their football kits  They came second overall which is fantastic. 

A superb sportsmanship attitude as some of our players played for other teams as they had not got enough players and they even let some goals in. 


Honours shared in small schools football

On Wednesday, September 17 fifteen children went to Harrogate High School to take part in the small schools football tournament.  Despite warning the children that they would need hats, gloves, scarves etc.as Harrogate High School is known for its very cold, blustery conditions it was really quite mild.

The squad of 15 were split into two teams to compete in the two pools of football.  They all played some fantastic
football, despite one team not winning any games.  The first position match was between All Saints and Bishop Monkton and despite some very close off the line saves and practically pinning All Saints in their half the game ended in a 0-0draw.  This meant that both teams were placed first so congratulations to both teams.


Success in sportshall athletics

Eighteen children took part in the sportshall athletics competition at Outwood on Thursday, September 28. 
All competitors had to compete in two track events and two field events over the course of the afternoon.  After all
the scores were counted the winners were announced.

Bishop Monkton learned thery had earned  a trip to Harrogate to take part in the Harrogate School Sports Partnership area final in October
