Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better!
Forget the glass slippers, these girls wear football boots. A new initiative to promote girls’ football within secondary schools has been launched by the FA. Our school was invited to attend the “Game of Our Own” football camp to which we selected five of our Year 8 players, on 22nd January 2019. The camp trained the selected girls to becoming football activators and encourage more girls back here at Culcheth to get into football. Our activators on the day took part in multiple workshops such as marketing and delivery, skills session and listened to the Lioness Legends recall their football careers.
The activators met and spoke to Rachel Holt (Former England keeper) and Sue Smith (former left winger) who both played up to international level in their football careers and now act as pundits on some of the premier league matches.
Leading by Example
It is important to remember that events always have people working in the back ground. For our Sports Leaders, they help and assist with events hosted here at Culcheth high school.
Thank you to our athletics leaders who helped to run the Warrington School Indoor Athletics competition and to our Netball Leaders who helped to run and provide a skills session to our schools within the community, Culcheth Primary and St Lewis’. A special thanks to Lucy Burnham, Millie Lowe and Sian Taylor.

Congratulations to both our Year 8 Boys’ and Year 8 Girls’ Athletics teams who came 2nd (Boys) and 1st (Girls) out of the schools in Warrington.
