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.
In their first match of the academic year, Court Fields School under 16’s came away with an emphatic 52-0 victory over Preston School (Yeovil). Noticeable performances from Finley Pocock with 5 tries and Jai-Leigh Sears who was outstanding in defence.

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.

After our successful ascent of Tryfan, the group returned to the base for hot chocolate and another delicious meal of sausage casserole prepared by Mrs Robertson. Everyone enjoyed an impromptu musical performance led by Chris and Casey that made us forget our aching knees! Unsurprisingly, everyone went to bed quite a lot earlier!
The next day we headed off to Rhiw Bach mine. Year 7 students Starr and Becky continue the tale…
The Outdoor Club has just returned from the annual Snowdonia trip. This year we were based in the Ysgol Latymer Centre, at the end of the remote Penmacho valley, with nothing but the distant popping roar of the cars on the World Rally Championship night stage in the hills above the Centre for company on the first evening. Replete with Mrs Robertson’s delicious chilli, the students entertained themselves with board games and popcorn before settling down for the night.
Another brilliant day of fundraising for Children in need. This year we have managed to raise a magnificent £823.00. Well done Court Fields!
