17/01/19 - U15 Girls Handball Tournament

posted Jan 22, 2019, 12:45 PM by Moorbridge PRU   [ updated Jan 22, 2019, 12:47 PM ]

Moorbridge Sports Academy took part in a mainstream Handball Event that was held at Churchill CC, our Sports Academy girls played in their first competitive Handball games against three other teams who play Handball on a regular basis. 

Our girls started very slowly in the first game due to it being their first competitive outing however after a few minutes they were 0-4 down, after a quick team talk on the pitch by a number of our players... they showed a fantastic team ethic in order to get back into the game. After scoring two fantastic goals our girls seemed very excited for the next game, it was clear to see the confidence was growing within the team and they were passing the ball around very well. 

Chloe and Angel showed excellent team work throughout and scored some fantastic goals, as well as another fantastic performance by Kaylee in goal. She saved some very good shots by the opponent and kept the scores down on a number of occasions.

The event was officiated by Tyne Met students who had recently coached our students in late 2018. It was fantastic to take part in such an event and we will be looking forward to more Handball fixtures in the future.

12/12/18 - U16 Girls Football CVL

posted Dec 18, 2018, 9:18 AM by Moorbridge PRU   [ updated Dec 18, 2018, 9:20 AM ]

Moorbridge Sports Academy attended their second U16 Girls CVL at John Spence. We played 3 games and all were against very strong sides with girls who consistently play for teams around the North East. This time our girls were more comfortable playing with each other and the improvement since our last outing is astronomical. 

The girls played three games in freezing conditions against Astley, Churchill and St. Mary's High Schools, they were excellent games played in the right spirit with our girls showing they're more than able to compete against mainstream schools. Great to see the side growing in confidence, belief and in numbers!

27/11/18 - Beacon of Light Tournament

posted Nov 27, 2018, 11:15 AM by Moorbridge PRU   [ updated Nov 27, 2018, 11:16 AM ]

Moorbridge Sports Academy attended the U16 Beacon of Light Football Tournament at the Beacon of Light, a tournament that involved some fantastic teams from around the North East. We entered one team into the U16's category with a mix of boys and girls with the majority still in KS3.

There were 10 teams in the U16 category which halved into two groups, which over 100+ pupils participated on the day. We had arrived at the venue a little before 9.30am to look around the facility. On the fourth floor of the building there was a top quality 4G area where we would be playing our games. An excellent opportunity for all our of pupils involved to play on such a fantastic surface.

All of our 8 players were fantastic throughout, this showed as we were often the underdogs going into games with teams that had much bigger, stronger and older players than us. The determination, encouragement and fantastic team play on show brought some feedback from other teams commending our players on how they were playing the game on such a small sided pitch. 

During the semi final against the Beacon of Light, we conceded an early goal however the determination and energy shown to get back into the game was excellent to see. Our players worked extremely hard in order to get into the final, where we played against a Hartlepool team who were well drilled and played a fantastic style of football. It was an exciting end to end game of football which could have seen either team take away the trophy however on this occasion it wasn't Moorbridge.

posted Nov 13, 2018, 10:26 AM by Moorbridge PRU   [ updated Nov 27, 2018, 10:38 AM ]

Moorbridge Sports Academy attended the North East regional Dallaglio RugbyWorks Tournament. Our KS4 pupils had a fantastic opportunity to play on the Newcastle Falcons home pitch. 

We arrived however due to unforeseen circumstances there was only 2 other teams that would be participating on the day. The day started with a welcome to both schools who were in attendance as well as an introduction to the Newcastle Falcons stadium and the Falcons players who were there to support.

Having not played a competitive rugby game in over 6 months our Sports Academy students were absolutely fantastic. The leadership, commitment, encouragement and overall sportsmanship on show was excellent to see. Some of the rugby our students played throughout the two games gave a fantastic overview of the hard work they have put in during the Thursday sessions. We also received excellent feedback from the Dallaglio RugbyWorks staff and the Newcastle Falcons rugby players.

Huge thank you to all at Dallaglio RugbyWorks as well as Newcastle Falcons for giving our students a fantastic opportunity to play on the first team pitch!

She scored and assisted 5 goals during the tournament and was a vital part throughout.

Chloe also got injured during the tournament and unfortunately missed out on the Girls CVL games as well as another football match against her old school John Spence. Rather than being upset due to her injury she came along as part of the Moorbridge Sports Academy and supported her fellow students as well as helping Mr Dodds with various tasks on the Wednesday and Thursday games.

25/10/18 - Bidfood Experience

posted Oct 25, 2018, 9:31 AM by Moorbridge PRU   [ updated Oct 25, 2018, 9:55 AM ]

Bidfood operates as a foodservice wholesaler supplying fresh, frozen, ambient and non-food products to customers in a wide range of sectors within the foodservice and catering industry; including local authorities, NHS trusts, defence contractors, hotel and restaurant chains as well as many independent operators in the hospitality industry.

Our students had a fantastic opportunity to see the day to day workings behind a supplier and the many different strands that need to operate together in order to make a successful business.

Firstly Bidfood introduced themselves to our students and gradually worked through a presentation in order to describe the ins and outs of the business and how it has grown over the years. They also provided fantastic refreshments which went down very well with our students and staff.

Later we split off into two groups and worked our way around the premises. We were shown various different sections of the company from telesales, stock taking, warehouse management, freezer department and inside of the delivery vans. This gave our students a quick insight into a working environment and the many different departments that work together in order to keep the operation under control.

Afterwards we arrived back into the meeting room to ask any questions that the students had, as well as a first hand experience from one of the staff who worked his way through the apprenticeship program at Bidfood. He also gave advice to our students who will be looking for employment in the future.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Bidfood for their excellent hosting, deliverance, co-operation as well as the refreshments on the day, I'm sure you will see some of our students in the future. Also a big thank you to the Dallaglio Foundation for co-ordinating the experience for our students.

24/10/18 - CrossFit Tyneside #2

posted Oct 25, 2018, 9:15 AM by Moorbridge PRU   [ updated Oct 25, 2018, 9:16 AM ]

Our students had their second session of the year on Wednesday at CrossFit Tyneside, Ben put on another fantastic session in which our students had to work on new movements, patterns and stage them together to create a workout. The session ended with a 12 minute intensive workout which included wind bikes, burpees and bar lifts (knee ups). All 6 of the students that took part definitely enjoyed themselves as well as ending the session fatigued. 

We will definitely have some sore legs in the morning, another massive thank you to Ben and all involved at CrossFit for allowing us to use the gym.

The CrossFit regime takes place every two weeks, the next available opportunity will be on Wednesday 7th November. If you would like come along please see Mr Dodds or Mr Railton in advance.
