Ponteland Community Middle School Awards

Overseas Projects

Ponteland Middle School’s involvement in overseas projects and teaching of global issues have been significant and are ongoing. Staff at Ponteland Middle have forged links with organisations in Kenya, a Water for Women borehole project in Maasai Mara and a Viagenco Clinic for HIV/Aids in Mbita. Headteacher Caroline Pryer said: “This award is a testament to the consistent kindness, love and financial support given by trustees, parents, teachers and children to our friends in Kenya.”

ESFA Danone Nations Schools’ Cup for Girls
Congratulations once again to Ponteland Academy on becoming National Champions 2018 in the ESFA Danone Nations Schools’ Cup for Girls competition at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday 19 May 2018. The winners of the Inter District cup have also taken part in the Danone Nations Cup World Finals in various locations around the world, competing against other Nations’ winners as Team England. The Danone’s centenary celebrations, hosted in Barcelona in October this year (Danone yogurt’s historic birth place), will bring together two Danone Nations Cup World Finals (2018 & 2019, district and girls). For the first time ever, Team England will be represented by four teams and the PCMS team will be one of them and also the first ever English Girls’ side to represent at a World Final! What’s more, it will pay tribute not only to the thousands of young athletes from around the world battling it out on the field, but also to Danone’s 100 years of bringing health through food to as many people as possible.
