All the class has been observed throughout the term and a report compiled for each member

Theres been some star performaers and there has been some under achievers lets see who; here is the report:

His sickness record has improved dramatically but seems very indecisive when the other boys crowd around him.

Report…could do better grade C

2/ Ryan Taylor is one of the younger boys and another who had lots of time off last term.

It is believed that the last head Mr Hutchings didn`t think he was up to the required level required by his class but the new head has moved him up a class and he seems to be thriving on the challenge.

Report… has made rapid strides this term grade B

Just 3 Points For Wigan Athletic To Play For (01/05/16)

The Latics have only 3 points left to play for in this year's battle for League One promotion.

Gary Caldwell's Blackpool Reflections

A very proud Gary Caldwell spoke to the media after the game, let's take a look at what he had to say:

Dan's Big Game Report - Blackpool 0 Latics 4

As you read this message in the year 2036, much of Blackpool vs. Wigan '16 has passed into the annals of Latics lore. Scarcely has a single game of kickball received quite as much build-up - from the minute this fixture was announced to the moment match ref Stuart Attwell finally tootled on his tin whistle, talk of Bloomfield Road on 30 April was incessant.

And I expect it's been much the same since, with (admittedly failed) film scripts written and (admittedly shoddy) statues
