• Yr 9 ESFA National Cup

    Friday 12 January saw the Year 9 boys GW football squad travel almost 100 miles to Tiverton (Devon) to play in the last 16 of the ESFA national cup against Tiverton High School. Following a mammoth journey, our boys (perhaps understandably) started slowly and were lucky to keep the score at 0v0 for the first 30 minutes, with some heroics from Will Ventham in goal. 

    However, just before halftime, GW went 1v0 up against the run of play through Bartu Siva! A much improved second half performance saw GW create several chances but couldn't score and then suddenly it was 1v1 via a good Tiverton goal. With the match looking almost certainly to be heading to extra time, unbelievably Tiverton broke away and scored in the 3rd minute of added time to win the game 2v1 meaning heartbreak for our boys. Gutted is an understatement! 

    Well done to all students involved this season, including those who couldn't travel due to injury. Reaching Round 6 of the national cup is a great achievement and students should be proud of a good season.

  • The Little Princess Trust

    Acacia Christopher (7CSi) decided to do something incredible on the last day of term before breaking up for Christmas. Acacia wanted to raise awareness for a charity close to her heart called The Little Princess Trust. The charity receives donations of hair to make wigs for young girls. She very bravely had all of her hair shaved off, showing true selflessness! What an amazing thing for her to do! Well done Acacia, we are very proud of you! #GWProud

  • Tennis Star - Ten Pro Global Junior Tour Mouratoglu

    My first ever international tournament. 420 players from 57 different countries came down to Mouratoglou in Biot, South of France.

    The players came from 5 different continents and some of the most unlikely places like Syria and Greenland. Players came from as far as Canada, USA, Brazil, Seychelles. In my age category (2003 boys) there were 56 players. I played four matches over the week. I won 2 and lost 2.

    My first match was against a boy of Italy. I won my match 3-6, 7-6, 6-1.

    My second match was against a top player from Sweden. I lost 0-6, 2-6.

    My third match was against another Swedish player which I won 6-0, 6-0.

    My final match was against a Swedish boy again. I lost this match 3-6, 3-6.

    My brother also participated in the tournament in the 10 and under. He won his first match against Luxembourg, he won his second match against Belarus and he won his third match against a French boy. Unfortunately he lost in the finals against another French boy, but was very happy to become runner up. He received a huge trophy and a goodie bag. It was a great experience.

  • Striking Chords!

    Students from across G&W Academies were amongst 300 young aspiring musicians who took part in Striking Chords, SoundStorm’s biennial Music Hub celebration, last July in Upton Country Park. A sold out event attracting 500 ticket holders, sponsored by the prestigious BSO and engaging over 15 schools and 20 Music Hub Partners, the event was captured and a short film has recently made available https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7MfIIWioLE

    The G&W students came together in a number of ways; a vocal harmony group from the ever keen Year 7 (now 8) grammar stream, their jazz band and in response to the mass ensemble finale, the Year 7 vocalists led by Miss Cade added a choral input to the closing moments of the daylong event. 

    Attended by both the Mayors of Poole and Bournemouth, Arts Council England regional rep’s, various head teachers and local Councillors, the event has been highly praised not only for the scope of its programming but the additional offer it makes towards giving musicians an inspiring performance opportunity that’s a step away from the norm!

  • 100% Attendance - awards breakfast!
    On Thursday 19th October eighty Year 7-10 students attended a rewards breakfast to highlight the hard work, 100% attendance and the most house points achieved over the first half term. All students were able to enjoy a continental breakfast with students from different year groups and celebrate their achievement. This was a fantastic opportunity for heads of year to spend quality time with some of the most hardest working students in their year groups.

  • Coffee Morning - Macmillan
    On Friday 29th September it was the National Coffee Morning Day for Macmillan. Bournemouth North Rotary Club held a Charity Golf Day at Knighton Heath Golf Club. We had fifteen teams entered mainly from local Golf Clubs including Parkstone,  Ferndown,  Knighton Heath,  Meyrick Park and Crane Valley. We also had an entry from Glenmoor & Winton Academy consisting of  Leon Lima – Teacher plus three students namely Sacha and brothers Cameron and Kieran. At the end of the day Leon had excelled himself in winning both the Longest Drive competition and the Nearest the Pin prize. The winning team of the whole event was the Glenmoor & Winton Team.   The prizes were presented by Matthew Moore of GALES SOLICITORS who sponsored the event. The team all won a trophy, a voucher and a bottle pf Bubbly.  However bearing in mind my duties as a School Governor I made sure I handed the bottles to the parents. Many commented on how smart they were and how polite and well mannered they were during the day.  The amount raised on the day was  £2,700.
