Our girls’ football team have been given an opportunity to win £500 towards a new football kit. Below are the reasons why we think we deserve to win the prize:
· We were the first girls’ team to play 11 aside at Passmores Academy and Harlow schools. We recently won team of the year at our Sports Presentation Evening.
· There were no 11 aside girls’ team in the area until we set one up with Sumners Youth FC. Now we play weekly games in the Essex league and train weekly for an hour.
· We currently have one team kit, which is used by the boys team as well. We would love to have a girls football kit for our own instead of sharing. We feel we deserve this for recognition for our outstanding performances in the Essex cup & Sumners.
On Friday 3rd July, Passmores took part in the district Chamionships at Mark Hall school. The day consisted of field and track events and Passmores had two students representing the school across all events,
All the students did exceptionally well and everyone gave 100% effort into the events,
Passmores won overall and we are proud to call ourselves champions!

On the 30th June, a rounders tournament was hosted by Burntmill for all the year 7s to play against different schools in Harlow. We are played well and we were pleased with our performance. Unfortunately, we could not secure wins against all the schools and we came 4th overall.
We have really enjoyed playing against different schools at rounders this season and we look forward to next year!

Passmores boys have had a great cricket season. The U15s started off their season with a win against St.Mark’s with St.Marks scoring 78-6 and Passmores scoring 81-3 over 50 overs.
The U13’s also started off with a win against Burnt Mill. Burnt Mill scored 72-6 and Passmores scored 73-4. This was over 16 overs.
Passmores U15s continued their winning streak to win 95-6 and Shoeburyness scoring 72-8. Man of the match was Asad Naqvi.
The Passmores U15s made it all the way to the semi-final of the Essex cup, but unfortunately they were knocked out by Barking Abbey scoring 188-2 and Passmores scoring 124-6.
This was the first time that Passmores had made it so far in the Essex cup and is a great achievement for all the boys involved!
