Welcome to Corpus Christi
We have so much to celebrate at Corpus Christi and are proud of the achievements made by all of our students. Here a just a few of our recent sporting highlights.
Our boy’s football team are currently unbeaten under Mr. Sweetman’s leadership and are now in the second round of the English Schools Cup. Just before half-term Jack Teahan and Alfie Wilkinson played over in Morocco representing Leeds and England in a World Tournament which is a fantastic achievement for both students.
Our Y7 boy’s rugby team have also made a promising start to Corpus Christi. The team are ranked second in Leeds and only narrowly missed out on a first place finish. However, they still remain in the latter stages of the Leeds and Hunslet Cup and now progress into the Yorkshire Cup.
The Y7 girls netball squad have been training and are showing real promise to become a talented team.
Students in Y7 have also been preparing for their Sports Hall Athletics heat in December with Mr. Lisgo and Miss. Bentley.
Following the qualifying stages in October, the boys rugby league team are ranked no.1 in Leeds. They now go into the Yorkshire Cup.
The Y8 boys Football team have made a great start and currently top the Merit League as well as progressing through to the next round of the Leeds Cup.
The Y8 girls Netball team start their competitive league games this half-term following their successful season in Y7. This is the first time Corpus has entered the competitive league and the girls have been training twice a week to develop their skills.
Both the boys football and rugby league teams have made a great start to the season. The football team have really improved from Y8 and are in a strong position to qualify top of their merit league. The boys rugby qualified for the Yorkshire Cup and are ranked no.3 in Leeds.
Students are also performing really well alongside working hard in their GCSE’s. The Y10 boys rugby team travel to Hull in November in the Yorkshire Cup having qualified in first place in Leeds. The girls Netball team are turning into our best ever Netball squad and are also entered into the Leeds Schools Netball League.
Finally, we have several students who are excelling in their Sport outside of school. Here is just a selection of the talent we have in KS4.
Harrison Holgate – Middlesborough FC Academy and Head Boy at Corpus Christi

Finally, now fully kitted out and ready to go, our new Y10 L2 Sports Leaders will be hosting their first event in November for our feeder Primary Schools in a Sports Hall Athletics qualifier.
A massive and impressive contribution to the school – well done to everyone involved !
It's our Awards a evening tonight. We look forward to celebrating the success of our students, past and present.
