On Friday, 11 April 2014 a celebratory breakfast was held for members of the Year 8, 9 and 11 Football Teams to celebrate their team's successes throughout this season. The Year 8 team are league and South Yorkshire Cup Champions. The Year 9 team have gained promotion to the Premier Division and the Year 11 team have been unbeaten all season! They would have gained promotion, but sadly they will be leaving Yewlands at the end of the summer term.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
