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.
Due to the ongoing hot weather students may wear Court Fields PE kit or their uniform without blazers and ties again tomorrow. We will keep you informed of uniform requirements as the week progresses. Ms Bennett
Congratulations go to; Oliver Rogers a year 9 student, for his inventive interpretation of the theme, Charley-May McDonald a year 7, who added a creative three dimension element to her cake, Hollie Cullen and Ellie Popplestone, year 8 students for their professional chocolate cakes and Emily Horswell a year 11 for her eye catching Red velvet cake.
The sale of the cakes was extremely popular with students queuing to purchase the creative goodies at break and lunch times; £64 was raised.
Well done and thank you to all students who baked and/or ate cake and a special thank you to Miss Coggins and Mrs Frayling for organising the event.
Duke of Edinburgh Expedition
Silver Duke of Edinburgh Practice Expedition
Over the weekend of the 17th – 19th March, nine students and four staff braced the 40 miles per hour gusts of wind and horizontal rain to do a 3 day and 2 night expedition across Exmoor. The teams started just outside Wheddon Cross and walked to Minehead, staying at Cloud Farm in the Lorna Doone Valley and spending a night in Porlock.
Despite numerous blisters and the challenging weather conditions the groups really enjoyed their expedition and learnt a lot in preparation for their assessed expedition in July.
Year 7 boys in Sapphire won for us in the inter-house football. Overall most people have been saying that Josh Winter was the best player on the pitch!
Jake Evens said “It was a fun game and we were happy that we won all the matches we played”.
We are so glad that we had another win for Sapphire house and I believe that Mr Selway is happy about that! So well done to all the year 7’s that played.

Year 7 students wrote to Prince Harry after researching him and his life. Many students were surprised to find out that Prince Harry is dyslexic. His office wrote back individual letters to the students and enclosed photographs.
