Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt in Birmingham trip 16th December

Thank you to all students who showed an interest in attending the trip. The trip was oversubscribed and therefore on this occasion, we had to draw names and disappoint some students who are not able to come. Students whose names were randomly selected should have received a letter via email to inform them that they have been successful in securing a place.

There will be a short meeting at lunch 12:40 in ML1 on Monday, 13th December to finalise travel arrangements.

Please see Mrs French or Mrs Bishop if you have any questions.

Year 8 Netball

Year 8 had their second game of the season Wednesday night. The first quarter started strong with Southam leading 3-0. In the second and third quarter Aylesford fought back with the score reaching 7-6 to Southam. In the last quarter the team really pulled together. Excellent shooting, defensive pressure and interceptions throughout the court led to Southam winning 8-7! The squad consisted of Aoife, Phoebe B, Charlotte, Alexia, Phoebe H, Hannah, Scarlett, Isla and Sienna. 

Well done to Charlotte who received player of the match from the opposition and thank you to our supporters who braved the cold!
Well done team!

Y8 Rugby – Success under lights

On Tuesday evening a strong Y8 Rugby squad travelled to Harbury RFC for a highly anticipated fixture against Kenilworth School.Nearly 100 people braved the cold temperatures to watch two competitive sides battle for supremacy. They did not leave disappointed, as two teams with contrasting styles of play put on a show.

Mr Lowdon caught up with powerful forward Tom O-M after the game to get his assessment of the game.

15 boys from Southam College played an amazing team from Kenilworth. Southam tackled well and they supported each other in defence. Attack wise we were strong through the rucks and mauls and with pace in the backs meant Southam scored three tries and only conceded 2 tries.

The pressure from Kenilworth in the last few minutes was intense but they had not realised the power of Southam tackles.

Well done to all and we look forward to our next match.

Inter Area Cross-Country Championships

There were some fantastic performances from the Southam College runner at this morning’s Cross-country Championships at Stratford High School. The Inter Boys (Yr 11 & 10) kicked us off, with Oliver W. producing a great run to beat many older students and headed home the rest of the team, James E., Jasper J and Charlie L.
The Minor Boys (Yr 7) were next and the impressive Emilio F. produced a promising run, followed by Charlie C. and Finn S.
The Minor Girls were our strongest overall team, packing well to finish as a team, Holly A., Tammy M, Bella B., Summer G and Lily R.
Our Junior Boys (Yr 8 & 9) battled well around the open and twisting course, with Ollie M, followed by Max C. and Oliver L. all competing admirably.
Performance of the day, though, came in the Junior Girls, the last race of the day. Running against girls in Yr 9, Rosa W. worked her way through the field and powering passed the leading athletes into second place, pressuring the long time leader and finishing in an impressive 2nd place. Behind her, Esme Du B., Lexie T., Zara S., and Tilly A. all ran well to challenge for the team title.
Congratulations to you all and I look forward to more Cross-Country success in the weeks to come.  It could be the start of a promising season for our Southam College runners.

Year 8 History

Mrs Mali’s history class, 8SE3, would like to thank Linda Doyle from Southam Heritage Collection for sharing such an interesting presentation about the role Southam played in the English Civil War.

Students had fun learning about the different soldiers and uniforms and even had the chance to dress up and role play. We even learnt how King Charles I stayed in the Manor House in Southam in 1642.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us and teach us about the local area’s history.
