Somerset Junior Championships

Court Fields took a group of Year 7 & 8 students to the Somerset Junior Championship held in Yeovil on 3rd June 2015. The event requires students to reach a certain qualifying standard in each of their events to compete. With most state and independent schools in the county being represented within the 2 age groups.  All Court Fields students competed well in their given disciplines.

 There were two notable performances on the day were Katie Acton 3rd Under 14 Girls Discus, and 2nd for Georgia McGrath in the Under 14 Girls 100m just missing out on 1st by 0.10 of a second to a runner from Millfield School.

School Chess Tournament

Mr Woodward, was delighted to welcome the Secretary of Wellington Chess Club, Mr Chris Barratt, to Court Fields School to present the awards and medals to all the students who competed in this year’s tournament.
In total 26 students took part in the tournament, over 7 weeks and played 65 matches.  The tournament was competitive and played in the right spirit throughout.There were a pleasing number of Year 7 students this year, amongst them Adrian Adamiec, (4 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss), who was to go on to win the Year 7 Trophy, and who will be a strong challenger for the school title next year.
At the conclusion of the tournament both Sophie Beech, (5 wins, 2 losses), and George Hookway, (4 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss), were tied on 17 points each, and could quite easily have been joined by Jamie Burge, (3 wins, 2 draws, one loss), had he not missed one of his games. However, the School Champion for 2015, after count-back and ‘head-to-head’ games, is Sophie Beech, with the Runner-Up awards going to George Hookway and Jamie Burge. Congratulations to them, and to Adrian Adamiec, the Year 7 Champion, and well done indeed to all who took part this year. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe names for this photo, going left to right, are as follows:

Climbing champions again.

On 29th March the Court Fields Climbing team entered round 2 of the south west inter-schools climbing competition.  Round 2 was a bouldering competition and the Court Fields squad had to battle hard to maintain their winning margin from the round 1.  Paul Russell Manager of the Quay climbing wall said “it was a very close competition but Court Fields managed to win by just a few points.


The video below shows the team in action.  Thanks to Mr Jenkins for arranging the competition.  We will back again next year to see if we can make it three wins in a row!

Yr7 Futsal competition

On Wednesday 21st Jan the year 7 Futsal team from Court Fields travelled to Castle school to compete against the local schools in this School Games Qualifier. The winner would progress to the Finals which is held at Millfield in the Summer. Court Fields started well and won their first game 1-0. against Heathfield. Court Fields played some excellent football. They showed great passages of passing play, combined with some fearless cat-like goal-keeping from Sullivan Harlow. They continued as they started and managed to beat Taunton Academy, and Bishop Foxes also with a 1-0 scoreline. The Castle team proved more of a challenge and with 1 minute to go Court Fields were the wrong side of 1-0. However a quick thinking kick-in from Cameron Perry-Jones saw Harry Sloman knock the ball past the keeper and in by the far post. At 1-1 with seconds to go it was all to play for. However, a well taken corner and an even better header just beat Harlow and the game finished 2-1 Castle. A cracking display of futsal and Court Fields finished in second place narrowly missing out on that coveted Millfield slot. The team wish the Castle side all the best in the finals.
