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.

The Year 10 girls played against castle on Monday 19th Jan 2015. This was their last Basketball League fixture. Castle made a strong start and were in the lead 8-0 before Court Fields got on the score board. Court Fields started to play some confident basketball and started to drive towards the basket more effectively as the game progressed. Karolina Thomas made some excellent lay-ups and the team were confident in rebounding at both ends. Final score Court Fields 28 Castle 22.

Well done to Megan White. She has recently taken part her mixed martial arts grading and has been awarded the Brown Belt. She has a grading every 3 months and we look forward to seeing her progress. Her ultimate aim is to reach her 1st Dan and eventually her instructors award. We wish all the best in this.
Students 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.
The Court Fields Year 9 team took on Bishops Foxes in their first game of the season. Foxes certainly had the larger pack who proved to be a dominant force despite some excellent rucking from Court Fields and occasional turnover ball. Foxes lead at half time by 17points. Court Fields started to use their quick back line on a more regular basis in the second half which gave the Foxes defence something to thing about. However, the damage had been done in the first half end Foxes emerged as 25-0 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.
