During the Spring term, Fifth Years Alice Thomson, Charlotte Taylor-Berg and Antonia Mills have been trying their hand at being sports journalists.

The students, who play for one of the school’s girls football teams, have been giving up their Saturday mornings to come in and take pictures of SGS footballers in action.

They have been taking some great action shots and to reward them for their hard work, they were invited to be flag bearers at the recent Manchester derby between Manchester City and Manchester United Women's Team in the Barclays FA Women's Super League.

Alice commented: “It has been wonderful to see so many pupils, from Juniors right through to Sixth Form, getting involved in football. Taking photos of matches has been a lot of fun so far and it is easy to see why the teams do so well as there is such a strong sense of teamwork and the competitiveness, but also support for one another.”
