High-five Netball
On Monday Churchill Academy hosted our annual High-Five Cluster Netball Festival.  Eight Cluster Primary Schools (16 teams), played a round-robin tournament. As always, I checked the weather and we decided to go ahead as planned - the weather report was fair to indifferent. In traditional style the reports were optimistic and we had progressive rainfall, however the youngsters, parents, teachers and Year 10 leaders braved the first half of the tournament, despite the deteriorating conditions - I'm contacting the BBC weather network for a refund.
We decided to come inside to the sanctuary of the Sports Hall and I have to say our 26 Year 10 leaders, all players and staff adapted superbly. We continued the tournament inside where the pupils played across four mini-courts. The effort, organisation and conduct of the pupils and leaders was a pleasure to see in itself. Coupled with this we saw some majestic performances as the players warmed to the new slightly more tepid venue.
Many thanks to all those Staff and Year 10 Leaders and pupils for taking part in a fantastic event.  
Congratulations to Winscombe and Banwell for winning the respective groups.

Year 9 Football
Well done to the Year 9 football team who progress through to the Quarter Final of the Somerset School's Cup with 4-2 victory over Frome College.  The team went 3-0 up within the first 10 minutes and the game was over in extremely difficult conditions.  Goals from Toby Lawrence, Dan Morris, Ollie Wynn and Henry Smith. Our next game is at home against Wadham.
