Year 8 Football Success

Well done to our Year 8 football team at Kinver High who displayed amazing talent last night and won a great game.

They’ve shown fantastic team spirit and resilience this year, and despite suffering from a few defeats earlier in the season they have stayed together. There have been at least 20 players to each training session every week and this hard work and dedication has paid off.

Yesterday, Kinver were 6-0 victors in their final league game away against Leasowes High School.

The goal scorers were: H Hemmings (2), T Harris, J Bastable, W Phillips and N Stelling.

The team: W Phillips, S Davies, H Johnson, T Grainger, C Shoaf, T Harris, H Hemmings, N Stelling, C Hollowood, M Beaumont, J Bastable, J Bayliss, C Lawson, X Escudeiro Fraga

Congratulations to the whole team and in particular James Bastable, who was named Man of the Match!


Zumba Charity Evening

Well done to Year 11 students Erin Morrison, Lizzie Saunders and Scarlet Bromley who organised a very successful Zumba fundraiser for our Gambia School Appeal.

The event, which took place on Monday, raised over £600 and everyone had a lovely evening of Zumba followed by prosecco and strawberries!


Kinver in Hockey Tournament

Unfortunately, hockey in the borough is dwindling in most schools. At the moment we lack good hockey facilities until our new sports facilities are built at Kinver High. With this in mind, we entered two Year 8 teams into the only tournament in the area on Monday.

Our Year 8 girls worked very hard in Monday night’s hockey tournament. Considering these girls have never played hockey, only uni hoc, which is a completely different sport, they achieved so much.  Our A Team comprising: Olivia Sullivan, Millie Harris, Kathryn Hastings, Izzy Turner, Maddie Baker, Izzy Hampton and Grace Bridges, fought all the way through to a crucial 4-a-side extra time playoff.  This battle was immense and the organisers thought a goal would have been scored in 2 minutes, but it went on for at least 10. Izzy Hampton saved about 10 attempts at goal in that 10 minutes. They did brilliantly and finished 3rd out of 8 teams.

Our B team comprising: Yasmin Clift, Amelia Smyczek, Sophia Smith, Milly Lingard, Rosie Harris, Mia Beck and Lucy Green, was faced with the winners of the whole tournament in their first game - King Edwards VI Five Ways School. This made them a little unsteady to begin with, but they made a massive improvement in the next two games and scored some fantastic goals. They came 5th out of 8.

Well done to everyone!


Kinver Geography Quiz Triumph

Well done to our Year 8 geographers who came 3rd and 4th in last week’s Geography Quiz held at Haybridge High School, Hagley.

Kinver High entered two teams into the Geographical Association’s Black Country round of the quiz, which test students’ general geographical knowledge. Our teams comprised: Izzy Turner, Amelia Smyczek, Will Phillips, Molly McParland, Evan McGregor, Max Beaumont, Max Roberts and Dom Cattell.

Geography teacher, Miss Gilhooley, said: “I was very proud of all of our students, they did very well against strong competition.”
