Webb Ellis information

Any student not going on the trip should go to the Gym am registration.

If you are going on the trip you need to be in the hall at 8.45am ,no later than 8.50 am when the assembly will start. If you have a bus that is late, it is worth getting in earlier if you can. 

Important information about the day will be delivered in the assembly. The quicker we get through this the quicker we leave so be prompt.

Food   – food is expensive at Alton Towers. It may well be worth bringing a packed lunch to eat there. You may bring money at your own risk. 

Clothes – it is non uniform, but the same rules apply to a trip as if you were partaking in a non-uniform day at school. 

Return to school – please have your phone with you to inform parents of estimated time of arrival. This can vary based upon traffic. Parents should not park in the bus bay. We hope to be back from 6.15pm – 6.30pm but again this is dependent upon you being on time and the journey back.

Year 9 Football

Southam V Princethorpe

The year 9s took a short trip to Princethorpe as they looked to bounce back after they suffered a tough loss against Kenilworth last week. The year 9s started well and clearly full of confidence as they created some good chances early on but failed to convert. Princethorpe took the lead after a composed finish by their number 9. Southam were battling up the slope in the first half and managed to gain a goal back via a deflected strike by Ethan who claims it was going in anyway. Southam went into the break level at 1-1 and confident as they were going to be kicking downhill in the second half. Southam played some much better football in the second period, but Princethorpe always looked dangerous going forward. With 10 minutes to go a lovely reverse through ball from Jamie set Alex through on goal which he managed to slot effortlessly into the bottom left corner. Southam managed to hold out for a 2-1 win in a brilliant comeback.

Some outstanding performances from Frankie (had to leave before the end so not in the team photo) in goal who made some top saves and some brave claims and Jack who defended brilliantly all game, but everyone played their part!

Year 9 Football

The year 9s took a short trip to Warwick to play Myton School on a busy evening of fixtures.

The year 9s started well but could not find the back of the net in the first half despite linking up well. Myton looked dangerous on the counterattack but Southam’s defence managed to contain the threat. In the second half Southam conceded a scrappy goal after not being able to clear the ball from a corner. After going a goal down, Southam got the ball on the floor and managed to play some really nice football with the three midfielders, Jamie, Eva and Ethan linking the play really nicely which was rewarded with great goal by Alex after link up play from Luca and Tom. With 10 minutes left on the clock, Jamie struck a ball on the half-volley which nestled into the bottom right corner and gave the keeper no chance to make it 2-1 to Southam. Eva came close to making it 3-1 as the Myton keeper tipped her shot onto the crossbar and despite not getting the goal she deserved, Eva earned Southam’s player of the match award with a dazzling performance.

The game ended 2-1 and every player represented the school brilliantly.

Year 9 Rugby

Southam V Bablake

On Saturday 4th February, the year 9 Rugby team made up one of the 3 teams travelling to Coventry to compete with Bablake in what was set to be a good contest.

Southam warmed up quickly and with purpose as they prepared for their first game of the new year after a positive end to 2022, which set a tempo and a standard for the game to come. Southam started well and were rewarded with a quick try which gave the year 9s confidence to push on throughout the first half, with multiple tries converted by Joe and Jamie who shared the kicking tee. These tries included a blistering run and finishes by Jacob and Jack. Southam scrummaged brilliantly and contested well at the breakdown. The team made fine tackles throughout the game which helped Southam go into halftime at 26-0 up. In the second half, Southam’s scoring slowed down through some great defensive work at the breakdown by Bablake until Sam broke through the lines and skipped through two tackles to take the final score to 33-0. A great performance and result to end the Rugby season.

Training continues Wednesdays to keep sharp for next year and potentially for any friendly fixtures before the summer term.
