Sports Awards 2022

Posted at 11:36 am on 11th July, 2022

Flixton Girls have pulled off yet another prestigious celebratory Sports Awards Evening, our first since 2019, owing to all the COVID restrictions. The event was opened by our very own ensemble of singers ‘Vocalise’, who provided a spine tingling performance of Mendelssohn’s ‘Lift Thine Eyes’. Followed by a clip of the closing ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, a celebration of sporting achievements in strange times.

The theme of this year’s event ‘A place in sport for every child - belonging’ celebrated the sporting efforts, contributions and achievements of those who have stepped up to the plate; displaying pride and passion for their sport.


Students across all year groups received awards for their personal and teamwork successes and helped entertain and host the event. School council members Gabby Murray and Isabelle Frain hosted the evening and did a wonderful job of introducing the many award participants. Throughout the evening medals were awarded for commitment and excellence for individual sports, as well as team of the year. Our winning team this year were our Trafford Champion athletics squad, who have really developed well together and shown a team effort to get them across the line!  


Our students provided thrilling performances, in gymnastics and contemporary dance allowing their skills to be showcased. Partner primary, St Mary’s C of E Primary School also delighted everyone with their under the sea inspired dance performance.  We wish to thank all our performers for taking time out of their busy schedules to display their talents.
