Another excellent team performance, helped them win the U13 Inner Region Middlesex Cup Competition for the second year in a row. The Middlesex Final is an all day competition, at the same venue, to be held on Thursday 27th Feb.

The Spurs Inclusive Festival@WHLCSC

Today’s football festival was for many of our students, the first time that they have represented APS at football or any other sport. Although, moving forward we hope there will be many more chances in the future with several London Youth Games Competitions next year.


                                      RANDY; JASON; RAY; GEORGE; ERDI; MAX;                                          NATHANIEL; OLIVER; JAMES; RUBEN; KYAN

The APS football squad received high praise from the THFC Foundation coaching staff and they should be very proud of their achievements. The players showed a fantastic attitude in their first football festival, often playing against much older and more experienced opponents.


At the closing ceremony APS players were presented with certificates, acknowledging their demonstration of the Premier League Values – Ambition; Fair Play; Teamwork; and Inspiration. Today’s festival was as much about developing life skills, as it is about improving football skills.


James; Randy and Ray were commended by THFC staff for embodying the spirit of the game and presented with their awards by Chirpy the THFC mascot. We would like to thank the Foundation for inviting APS to this year’s Girls and Boys Inclusive Football Festivals and look forward to returning in the New Year to develop our skills further.

Y9 & Y10 Haringey Swimming gala 2019

Congratulations to the APS students who took part in this year’s Haringey Swimming gala. The Y9 boys team showed some strong individual performances from Gil who won his butterfly heat along with the 4x medley race.  Sameer also showed perseverance in his breaststroke event finishing a very respectful 2nd position.  Fred and Daniel contributed excellently to the 4x freestyle relay along with the 4x medley relay.  Overall the Y9 boys team finished a strong 3rd place. The Y9 girls team had an outstanding performance from Rowan, who had strong competition from another club swimmer, but saw her off easily in the Individual Medley, Freestyle and 4x Freestyle relay. Bea also was consistent in her backstroke event, showing lovely technique and confidence.  Overall the Y9 girls swim team finished 2nd place. Both Y10 teams once again came out strong. They had a lot to live up to after finishing first place for 2 years running. Arun swam superbly throughout, winning every one of his race.  Jack and Louie also put in strong performances, despite a few goggle issues. Sadly, the forth team member could not make the gala which mean the boys team finished an amazing 2nd position.  The Y10 girls team were solid throughout from all girls- Lexie, Tamara, Isabelle & Edie.  Despite a few nerves, the girls came through on top and finished 1st position.  Well done to all students who took part.

Netball Update… Fixtures Galore.

Y7 V Gladesmore Monday 4th November

Due to a last minute mix up with teams, Y7 APS had to take on a strong Y8 Gladesmore team.  This was the girls first ever Netball match as APS so it was a huge challenge. The team were down 5-2 at half time, however, after a few team changes and encouragement, the team found there grove and where able to find the net.  Some excellent play from Maddie & Josie ensured that APS won this match 7-6. Well done to all who took part.

APS v Fortismere Monday 11th November

Fortismere were playing away for this match.  APS knew it would be a difficult challenge as Fortismere are current netball champions.  APS girls stepped up strong and showed some solid defending from Lily and Rocca.  Eloise and Josie also worked well together to make the game as difficult as possible for the Fortismere girls. Unfortunately APS came out 9-2 on the bottom, but the score should have been much closer than what the score line suggested.

APS v Hornsey School for Girls Wednesday 20th November

Coming off the back of a defeat, APS were looking to bounce back strong and prove our winning ways.  Right from the start, some lovely play and movement was seen by all of the team, which really started to finally gel together as a team.  Solid shooting from Maddie ensured that APS came on top this time with a 6-0 win.  Super win- onwards and upwards!

APS v Parkview Tuesday 26th November

APS travelled away for their first away fixture of the season against Parkview.  As we only could take 7 players, APS had no substitutes.  Parkview started off strong, with their GA being a big threat to APS.  Thankfully Eloise and Lily were calm and collected and able to keep the ball out of the area.  Lovely footwork and movement from Josie and Maddie once again ensured that APS went away winning ways- winning 19-2.  Credit to Rosa who went down injured with her ankle, but battled on playing to ensure APS were not reduced in numbers.  Congratulations all.
