On Monday 12th February, a group of Year 3 & 4 girls took a trip over to Stanton School.

They came away with 2 very convincing wins, whilst also showing a huge level of sportsmanship and respect for their opponents. Well done!

On Tuesday 27th February a group of Year 3 Girls travelled to Bushfield School for a small tournament with 2 other schools.

On Friday 8th March 2024, the Biggest Ever Football Session returned and what an incredible way to celebrate International Women’s Day at Two Mile Ash School!

We had a tremendous turn out, with over 100 girls taking up the opportunity to play.
