19 Year 10 students braved the harsh Autumn weather in Kielder forest for an activity weekend, accompanied by Mr Gray and Mrs Lawrence. Staying at Willow Bog cottage, reportedly one of the most haunted buildings in England, students designed their programme and menu for the weekend themselves. This included an adventure to Scotland, a firelighting challenge, restarting the generator and ultimately hammocking or bivvying out in the forest on the Saturday night. A great time was had by all!
It has been a busy couple of weeks for the school football teams. The Year 7 team travelled to Thirsk School in the ESFA National Cup second round. The game was initially very tight with both teams keeping men behind the ball, however, Johnson was able to break the deadlock before Thirsk equalised. In the second half Hurworth stepped up their game and ran away comfortably, Wilson scoring five goals to ensure Hurworth got their name in the hat with a 6-2 win. The lads await the draw for the third round! Well done to all the players on a superb performance.
In the ESFA National Elite Cup first round the Year 10 team had the difficult task of travelling to Hartlepool to face a very strong and powerful unit in Dykehouse School. Hurworth started the game superbly with Wilson scoring a hat-trick within the first 6 minutes of the game, his third hat-trick of the season in only his third appearance! Dykehouse battled well and made a superb game of it, Hurworth hanging on despite a lot of pressure to run out 3-1 winners on the night. The lads now wait to see whether they face Acklam or Kepier in the second round.
Well done to all the lads who played. Two outstanding performances.
