Year 7 Rugby turn out in force for their first rugby games in Court Fields Colours.

year7Rugby

Through their commitment in training the Year 7 Rugby Squad were able to field 2 full teams of 12 in a recent Central Ventue Event at Bishop Fox’s.

The teams played against the other schools in the area and showed bags of enthusiasum and commitment. Both teams should be proud of what they have achieved. For many of the students this was their first experience of playing competivtive rugby.  Definitely some boys to watch out for in the future.

Rounders Tournaments

Last week 25 Yr. 9 and 10 girls represented Court Fields in the Central Venue League Rounders Tournaments.  All teams played some fantastic Rounders, with both Year 9 teams securing lots of wins.  All teams fielded with excellent tactical awareness and teamwork. Particular mention goes to Yr. 10 students Olivia Salter and Jess Gould, and Yr. 9 students Tori Lowman, Gemma Shire and Alessandra Sears for excellent fielding.  Year 9 students Megan Beale, Bethany Channon and Karolina Thomas demonstrated some excellent batting skills.  The Year 9 A Team finished 2nd overall.

Madagascar 2016

IMG_0861

All students at Court Fields School have been involved with fundraising for the people of Madagascar over the past few years.  Over this time students and staff have raised over £5,000!  This money has been spent on different water projects in Madagascar.  Last year we supplied a village with their own water supply which now provides water for in the region of 500 people.  Before this villagers had to walk many miles in order to collect water.

We decided that it would be a fantastic opportunity to take a group of students to Madagascar and actually help with one of the projects on the island.  Eight students are now working hard at fundraising in order to finance the trip, which will happen in the summer of 2016.  As each student has to raise £3,750 this is by no means a simple task as you can imagine.

All support is greatly appreciated!

 

Annual chess competition

Court Fields School once again ran it’s annual chess competition throughout the Spring term as part of the country-wide Delancey UK Schools Chess Challenge. Nearly thirty students, playing up to seven matches each, played a total of eighty-seven matches to discover who would be this year’s school Champion. That honour fell to Robert Webber, a year 9 student, with Lottie Radford, last year’s champion, the runner-up. The top year 7 student was Jamie Burge, with three other students – Jamie Garnett, Oscar Kemble, and Matt Thorne – receiving trophies for their efforts in the competition. Of those students who took part in the competition, twelve are now eligible to go forward to the Somerset ‘Megafinal’ which is being held at Millfield School.

Pictured with their trophies are Jamie, Robert and Lottie. Standing behind them are the school chess organisers, Mrs M Murphy, Mr G woodward, and Mrs L Chard.

Year 10 Football

On Tuesday 25th March, Court Fields year 10 students played host to their inaugural fixture against Wellington School. A much anticipated local derby had Court Fields players chomping at the bit to get the game started. Wellington school started brightly and quickly settled into the game with some slick passing. Good defence kept them out and allowed Court Fields to counter on several occasions. Myles opened the account 15 mins into play with a ground shot that passed swiftly under the keeper. Shortly after the ref judged that a Court Fields player had been pushed in the area and promptly pointed at the spot. Tom smashed the ball into the net giving the keeper no chance of a save.

The second half was more of an even affair with Wellington school coming close on several occasions. A final flourish from Court Fields saw Kieran find the net to round off a deserved 3-0 victory. This was a great fixture and one that both parties felt should remain in the calendar.
