Junction 24 careers event

IMGP2515On Wednesday 15th October all of our Yr11 students attended the Somerset careers fair at the J24 conference centre, North Petherton.  The event is the largest careers event held in Somerset and offers students the chance to meet colleges, local employers and many Universities from across the country.

Careers advisor, Paul Cowling said “I was pleased to see all our students having serious discussions with local employers, FE colleges and Universities.  This event is a unique chance to get so many exhibitors under one roof and everyone seemed to appreciate this opportunity”.

Year 11 remain unbeaten

Court Fields Year 11 team (under 16’s) have won 3 out of 3 games so far this season. Having beaten Kingmead (37-12) and Taunton Academy (37-17) they also dispatched Bishop Fox’s (41-14) in the 2nd round of the Somerset Cup. Court Fields will now play the winners of Stanchester or Holyrood in the quarter final. Their next area fixture will be against The Castle School after half term. The team have played some really enjoyable rugby and have demonstrated a willingness to run the ball from anywhere on the pitch.

Year 8 Enrichment Day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn Wednesday the 8th of October Year 8 (‘A’ side of timetable) were treated to a morning of enrichment, that was delivered by visitors from outside agencies. From Taunton Deane Fire Service we had – Donna Nelmes, who delivered a session on Arson and the dangers of fire. Debbie Glennie and Steve Greenlagh from the Red Cross agency delivered a practical session on emergency first aid and Bob Telfer taught year 8 about road safety using the ghost program. The sessions were spread over 3 lessons and were done in a carousel style.  The ‘B’ side of the timetable will have their carousel day next term.  Feedback from the day was very positive and all students spoken to found it to be helpful and an exciting way to learn about safety. If anyone wants any further details about the sessions please contact me by filling in the form here with the subject FAO: Miss Murphy.

Inter-House Rugby

Rugby1Students at Court Fields have been taking part in the House Rugby 7`s over the last week. 

Students in all years were representing their house in hotly contested games that were often on a knife edge throughout. The rugby was played at a fast and furious pace with some excellent displays of fast running and superb tackling. The year 7`s were particularly impressive and we look forward to seeing them in their first competitive school fixtures later in the year. After the dust had settled and all year groups had played their matches, Emerald emerged as overall winners being dominant in years 7, 8 & 9. Ruby finished in a very consistent 2nd place with Topaz – despite winning matches in the older years, finishing 3rd. Sapphire had some very close matches but didn’t quite win enough games and finished in 4th.

 

Sports day trophy winners

The summer sports day was a very close run affair with all four houses competing closely in the track and field events during the last week of the summer term.  The eventual winners were Emerald, with Sapphire coming a close second.  The trophy was awarded by Ms Bennett and Mr Nicholls during a whole school assembly at the start of the new academic year.

 

Proud to be a Court Fields student

P1050928It was delightful to see students looking incredibly smart, purposeful, a lot taller and ready to learn.  A very warm welcome to our new Year 7 students – our class of 2019!  I know lots of parents had their cameras out on Tuesday to capture this milestone.  New students had a wonderful day.  In assembly they described their first day to me as awesome, exciting, tiring, outstanding, brilliant and fun.  Many parents, visitors and members of our community have commented how fabulous our students look P1050929and what a smart uniform we chose.  We were pleased to see so many Year 11 students enjoy the new shirt and tie.  We are very proud of our students and I know they are very proud of their school.  We are continuing to build on our current success to ensure that every child achieves well, belongs and participates in the full life of our school.

Court Fields students in unique climbing competition

Talented young Wellington climbers Katie Acton and Joe Walmsley competed in the UK’s first ever Deep Water Solo climbing contest, held at the Quay in Exeter during the last weekend of August. Competitors travelled from all over the country to climb on a specially constructed 7m high overhanging wall with the cold water of the Exeter Canal acting as a safety net.
The photo shows both Katie (left) and Joe (right) attempting their second and third routes respectively before a crowd of nearly 1,000 spectators.
