Year 5/6 football tournament 










 On Friday 29th a football team made up of year 5 and 6 pupils took part in the Wigan Athletic FC tournament at Leigh Sports Village. The team were fantastic and finished runners up in their group, playing some brilliant football whilst working very well as a team. Unfortunately the team were knocked out in the second round, but should be extremely proud of their performances and the way they conducted themselves throughout the day, they were a credit to the school.

Sisters doing it for themselves 

The Worrall sisters following their first year of football outside of school. Cara received managers player of the year and Charlie received a most improved award.  This is what Nicol Mere sporting ethos is. Nurture the interest in PE and after school club.  Develop confidence in Competition then see that love of sport develop outside of school. Very proud teacher. Well done girls and keep your efforts in sport, it’s great to see !
