Reminder to students – Remaining on Site

Please remember that you must remain on the school site from when you arrive to school until you leave to return home.  This means that if you get a bus to and from school you do not leave the site between when you are dropped off and when you are collected.  Please be aware that the Ash Path is off the school site.  For those students with a lunch pass you may return home at lunch but MUST sign in and out at the Student Office.

Students using the late buses on Monday/Wednesday/Thursday must remain in school from 3:30pm to 5:00pm, when buses depart.  If you leave the site during this time, you will be refused travel on this transport.

Any students found to leave the school site without the appropriate permission will lose their free time at lunchtimes and will be supervised inside, with a staff member on Sports Day.  Students will be allowed to compete in their allocated event/s.

Thank you for your support in keeping yourself safe and supervised.

Year 9 Rounder’s V Campion

As usual the girls were amazing at organising their team and preparing for the fixture. There is always fantastic team spirit, encouraging & supporting each other. We were very relaxed as usual & lacked that competitive edge, sometimes it takes us a while to warm-up! Our fielding was tight which resulted in a low score for them. We started slowly with our batting but scored those 1/2 rounders & the score started to go up. It was a comfortable win and yet again an absolute pleasure to coach & umpire.
Well done ladies you were brill.

Go Further Week

This afternoon Year 9 students took part in an historical crime investigation as part of the ‘Go Further’ week of activities.  Groups worked through a range of contemporary evidence to develop their own theories about which of the suspects was most likely to have been ‘Jack the Ripper’ before creating crime boards to support their judgements.  We were really impressed with the both the independent learning and source analysis skills on show – well done to all involved!

Year 9 Cricket 

Monday evening saw the year 9 cricket team finally play a game! Unfortunately, our previous 3 fixtures have all been postponed due to the bad weather. Southam travelled to Campion with a number of debutants in the side hoping to claim victory!
Southam won the toss and elected to field first. James P and Matt C opened the bowling and after their first spell had Campion 14-2. Southam continued to restrict Campion with few runs being scored off the bat. A number of runs were scored through wide deliveries but this didn’t deter Southam from taking wickets. Charlie picked up a wicket in his first over and kept the score tight. Jacob and Will both took wickets with their first ball of their bowling spells. Eric picked up a wicket through a good catch from Charlie. Oscar took a wicket after tempting the batsman into a big shot which James caught comfortably. The remaining 2 wickets came from sharp fielding from Kasey who ran both batsmen out. Archie, Ollie and James all bowled well despite not getting wickets. Jack kept wicket excellently in his first time doing it! End of Campion innings 66 all out from 15.2 overs.
Southam knew that if they didn’t throw their wicket away the target score was in reach. Matt and Oscar were instructed to keep their wicket intact for as long as possible.
The opening batsmen kept the scoreboard ticking over and were aided with some wide deliveries adding to the score. Matt scored a quick fire 19 before having to retire. Charlie entered the crease to join Oscar who had defended brilliantly. Between Charlie and Oscar Southam hit the winning runs in the 13th over without losing any wickets. A great team performance which deserved the victory.
Man of the match goes to Oscar for a great all round performance. A wicket, a brilliant one handed catch as well as batting for the entire Southam innings. Well done Oscar!
A very pleased Mr Turton
