Football Update


Fantastic Finish to Boys Football League Season!

Well done to the Year 5 and 6 boys who finished their schools league campaign with back to back 4-1 victories! This should see City Academy finish 4th out of 7 schools as they ended the league season on a high. 

On Tuesday 5th December they travelled to Hertford Primary and started the game very well, with a great first half performance which ended with Michael toepoking into the roof of the net- to help us lead 1-0 at half time.  Despite an excellent 30 yard drilled goal from Hertford, we continued to dominate the game in the second half and thanks to two goals from Maison and one from Destiny we won the match 4-1.

On Wednesday 6th December we played Queens Park at Manor Gym under the floodlights, full of confidence after our victory the night before.  In a match we created many chances in, Queens Park unexpectedly scored to take the lead but we stayed calm to equalise and make it 1-1 before half time.  In the second half we continued to dominate and eventually took the lead through Maison’s curling strike.  Two more late goals from Rio and Maison sealed a second 4-1 victory in as many days.

Well done to all the boys involved!

Year 5 and 6 Cross Country 22nd November

A huge well done to all the fantastic participants from Year 5 and 6 that took part in the Brighton Schools Cross Country on Wednesday 22nd November.  30 children from our school joined 1266 Year 5 and 6 girls in a 2km race at Brighton Rugby Club!

The boys and girls in their CAW blue Tshirts did amazingly and showed great determination and resilience to run such a long way! They all finished their two kilometres with a sprint and gave it their best.  Their behaviour was amazing and they did our school so proud- well done to everyone who took part!

A particular well done goes to our superstar runner Harley Pettitt in Year 6, who finished 37th out of approximately 250 boys- a great achievement Harley, well done!

Football Update


School Football Update- November 2017

It has been a very busy couple of week at City Academy with four different football matches taking place since the half term break!

Firstly, the Year 6 football league has begun and our team have played twice.  In their first match they lost a see-saw battle against Fairlight 5-3, before bouncing back with a 6-1 win over Saltdean ‘B’.

Our Year 5 team played at Coldean and lost a good match 6-2, with goals coming from Ali and Nura.

Our girls team, involving girls from Year 4, 5 and 6, also travelled to Coldean for a friendly match and their match was a very fair contest which finished 0-0

Well done to all players for representing our school so well!

Tag Rugby Tournament 11th October 2017

On a drizzly Wednesday at Waterhall Sports Field, 20 of our Year 6 children took part in a tag rugby festival.  They were split into two teams of 10, our Whitehawk ‘Red’ team and Whitehawk ‘Blue’ team. 

The children first took part in some rugby activities, then played in three matches against other schools.  Both teams were victorious in one match each, and scored lots of tries.   Well done to all who took part- they did the school proud with their enthusiasm for the sport and teamwork in the matches!

Boys Football Tournament


Boys Football Tournament 29th September

On Friday 29th October, we ambled over to East Brighton Park with Mr Berry and Mr Chick to take part in a 7-a-side football tournament. Though ultimately we didn’t win, we performed with pride and progressed through to the champions section of the second stage after a fantastic runners-up placing in the first league. The first 2 games were particular highlights, as we won both with some excellent passing moves involving Harley, Rio and Maison and top-class finishing along with composed defending from Trai, Destiny and Brandon. In one of the final games we lost 1-0 (following some goalkeeping heroics from Harvey), hitting the post near to the end which would have given us a shot at qualification to the semi-finals. We also brought a key game back to 2-1 with a goal made by Lyrik and scored by Francis, only to concede 2 more when pushing for the equaliser. All in all, we could be proud of our positive attitudes and the effort that we put in for each other, and can now look forward to working hard in football club ready for the upcoming league season.

Girls Football Tournament

Girls football team 22nd sept 2017(1)

Congratulations to all who took part in the girls football tournament at East Brighton Park! For some it was the first time they had played in a football match and they did their school proud! The girls from Year 4, 5 and 6 won one of their three matches and lost two.  Their victory against Carden Primary was 2-1 to CAW and included goals from Summer and Aliyah.  In the other games we lost a close match 1-0 to Benfield, and were beaten by an excellent Balfour team 4-0. The girls played really well in all three matches, worked well as a team and are looking forward to playing in more matches this year.  Well done girls!
