PE Autumn Half Term Update


It has been a superb half term at Falmouth School for sport, with some excellent achievements and results. Clubs have been well attended since early September and it has shown in both rugby and netball fixtures.

In rugby, it was quite a start to sporting at life at Falmouth School for Year 7! Our 7A and B teams are both unbeaten, notching excellent wins against Redruth, Camborne, Penair and Mullion! There were some standout results for Year 11 too, who drew with Redruth and beat Truro and Fowey. Year 8 picked up wins against Penair and Mullion, while Year 9 continued to improve with a victory over Mullion the reward for plenty of effort this half term.

In netball, Year 7 have enjoyed a fantastic start to school fixtures with a great win over Penryn and a very creditable draw with Truro School. Years 8, 9 and 10 have all improved markedly this season as a team and individually. Year 11 have had a storming start to the year, winning against Penryn and Truro as well as a 4th place finish in the recent county tournament. The College team have also started the term well, with great wins against Camborne and Newquay Tretherras.

The sports star of the week scheme continues to recognise outstanding achievement, with Jess Casterton, Idris Logan, Naomi Marsh, Ollie Kingsbury and Charlie Cocks the recipients this month. Ollie was selected in the Cornwall U16 rugby squad, with Charlie winning the Powerbreak Title at the National Taekwondo Championships.

Elsewhere, John Leach was selected for the West Cornwall U13 Football Academy after impressing in trials and there was success for Emmy Thomas, Joely Carter, Hugo Rudolph Georgia Hawkins and Thomas Trebilcock who all won medals at the Surf Lifesaving Championships.

Falmouth School would also like to wish Elliot Bullen a huge amount of luck for his upcoming National Gymnastic Final competition which is taking place in Birmingham on this month. The competition forms part of his junior Olympic team selection and he has worked incredibly hard training every night and weekend to prepare effectively.
