Kurling Event

Kurling 10

Our Year 7 indoor Kurling team recently took on a number of schools from Nottinghamshire at the Harvey Hadden Sports Centre. It was a fantastic morning full of enthusiasm, endeavour and fair play between all the teams taking part in the indoor event that you may have seen played out on the ice at the winter Olympics.

It was great to see the pupils working hard together in their two teams trying to win each game. The standout result, which the pupils are still talking about, was beating our neighbouring school Christ the King in a hard fought contest. Well done to all the schools and pupils who took part.

Fantastic finish to the season


Our 6th Form football team were looking to finish their season unbeaten and win a cup double. The weather was perfect and a great crowd turned up for the County Final at Burton Joyce on Thursday evening. Arnold Hill didn’t get off to a great start and found themselves 1-0 down after 20 minutes, and looking very nervous. However, a goal from Arran Kirkup and Greg McLean put Arnold Hill up 2-1 at half-time. West Bridgford pulled it back to 2-2 but with 20 minutes left and some great wing play on the left from Jack McLachlan, Ben Hunt slotted up with Jacob Hopper adding a 4th goal to secure the victory and the County Cup. It’s been a great unbeaten season and the team deserve all the success. Well done lads!

Conduct on the way to and from school

From time to time we find it is useful to remind some of our pupils that their behaviour on their way to and from school must be of the highest standard.  Our pupils wear the Arnold Hill uniform and are clearly identifiable when they are outside of school, they represent our Academy as well as their families.  Recently, a small number of our students travelling in the location of Mapperley Top and roads and pathways off Somersby Road have not been behaving well and have caused concern amongst members of the public.

Can you please take a moment to speak with your child and ensure they clearly understand how important it is that they always conduct themselves sensibly and calmly when they are travelling to and from school.  Any of our pupils who act irresponsibly or behave in an anti-social manner while travelling to or from school will be sanctioned and parents contacted.  Similarly if your child informs you of any anti-social behaviour then please don’t hesitate to let us know, we will deal with such information confidentially when following up.

Thank you for your continued support.
