Last Friday, the Year 10 football team took part in the County Cup quarter-finals against Longslade.
The year 10's showed great team spirit and gave 100% on the pitch to secure a 2-1 victory against Longslade in the County Cup Quarter Finals, behaviour and attittude was very positive as well.
The goals were scored by Dan Higgins (captain) and Finn Doherty but every single one of the players played at a very high standard and as a team. A special mention for the contribution of two year 9 players: Dennis Hewit and Nathan Lescott who both played a fantastic game.
Congratulation to the year 10 boys, who have gone through to the semi-finals of the County Cup and are all eager to play the semi-finals and try their best to reach the final.
Marion Peutrill RIP
We are sad to announce that Mrs Peutrill died on Sunday after a long illness. Mrs Peutrill was very fond of English Martyrs and loved working with the young people here as a Teacher of English and Head of Year.
We believe that God calls us to eternal life after death and that for Mrs Peutrill life is changed, not ended.
You are asked to join us in praying for the happy repose of her soul and for those who mourn her. We extend our condolences to Mr Peutrill and the family circle.
Eternal rest grant to her O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon her,
May she rest in peace. Amen.

On Tuesday afternoon the Year 7 boys football team advanced into the second round of the Ron Jackson County Trophy by beating Lutterworth High School 4-3 at home. The game was a tight affair and could have been won by either team. However, an excellent team performance in the second half and goals from Tobias Sutek and Connor Barrett secured a victory for English Martyrs. Well done to all of the boys and good luck for the next round!
