Enrichment Day PE activities

For the first enrichment day of the year on Friday 28th September the Year 10 options classes were involved in some exciting sports activities. The Year 10 Sports Studies group are currently following a unit on outdoor activities and as part of the practical experience for the unit went for a days sailing and raft building at Rickmansworth Aquadrome. With the sun out and a gentle wind blowing it was a perfect day for the students to learn the basics of sailing. The group showed great enthusiasm and soon developed the necessary skills to race the boats around the lake. In the afternoon the the group were tasked with building rafts that they could could complete a rowing challenge on. It was great fun with all students ending up getting very wet. The attitude and behaviour of the group was commended by the BLYM sailing club who were great hosts for the day.

Mrs Wright writes …. The Year 10 GCSE group had an immersion day that gave the group a feel for the final practical and theory assessment.  They applied themselves with brilliance to the drills and game play during the first session of basketball. In the volleyball session they were able to develop their coordination and variety of shots which then transferred exceptionally well in to the badminton tournament during period 5.  The group also learned about the circulatory, respiratory, muscular and skeletal systems through the medium of art. I enjoyed every second of the day and the students made it easy as they worked hard and produced fantastic outcomes. A really constructive and fun day for all.



Year 10A v Rickmansworth (Friendly) – Mr O’Kelly

Date : Saturday 29th September 2018

Result : Lost 4 – 2

Scorers : Jalen Sotomy, Zac Khan

Squad : Jesse Harry-Brown, Archie Sykes, Harris Plant, Ben Castello, Jake Norris-Ataie, Leo Enright, Luke Andrews, Zac Khan, Irvine Tannor, George Rowe, Jalen Sotomy, Jay Marsh, Reid Sims

Commended performances : Jesse Harry-Brown

Comment : A difficult game against a top league team. With a switch around at the back the boys have defended valiantly in the first half going down to a penalty and a sloppy mistake. A fight back in the second half brought the game to 2-2 and then the final chase for the win in the final 5 minutes left gaps at the back and the game was lost.

Year 9A v Rickmansworth (Friendly) – Mr Cartledge

Date : Saturday 29th September 2018

Result : Won 2-1

Scorers : N Amoako, E Anthony

Squad : M Machen, S Booth, N Amoako, E Anthony, M Chaudhury, C Lynch, M Keough, F Pierson, F Rowe, B Kabucho, A Kothary, T Bates, T Barnes, H Khan

Commended performances : C Lynch

Comment : The Year 9 Boys produced one of their best ever performances to win a highly competitive fixture played in really good spirit. It was an outstanding defensive performance by the team mixed in with some exciting counter attacking football. The boys created a  number of chances in both halves and fully deserved the win in the end. Well done all.

Year 9A v St Joan of Arc (District League) – Mr Cartledge

Date : Monday 1st October 2018

Result : Lost 5-2

Scorers : M Machen, T Bates

Squad : M Machen, S Booth, N Amoako, M Chaudhury, C Lynch, M Keough, F Pierson, F Rowe, B Kabucho, A Kothary, T Bates, T Barnes, H Khan, S Sabapathy

Commended performances : A Kothary, S Sabapathy

Comment : A disastrous 5 minute spell in the second half where the boys conceded 3 quick goals meant the scoreline was not a fair reflection of the game. After going behind in the first half the team played really well in the first 15 minutes of the second half and after missing a penalty finally equalised. However lapses of concentration cost the boys in the end – some lessons learnt for the next fixture.

Year 8A v Rickmansworth (District League) – Mr Burnell

Date : Saturday 29th September 2018

Result : Won 5-4  

Scorers :B. Narroway (3), D. Richards, A. Chaudhry Shamas.      

Squad : C. Martin (GK), B. Narroway,  A. Chaudhry Shamas, D. Richards, G. Gonzalez-Aller, K. Ford, L. Hill, D. Tegzes, A, Bengherifa, N. Haines, A. Ali, A. Zaghis, R. Uthayakumar, I. Dahmani, Z. Charrouf.   

Commended performances : C. Martin (GK),  B. Narroway, G. Gonzalez-Aller, D. Richards,  A. Chaudhry Shamas.

Comment: Saturday morning saw another fine performance by the year 8A team. The boys started on the front foot, taking the lead within the first minute. The lead was then doubled through a fantastic team goal, which was scored by B. Narroway. Rickmansworth then came back into the game and went into halftime with a 3-2 lead. The second half was started in a similar way to the first with us scoring a quick goal after halftime to bring the scores level. A series of end to end plays saw us again take the lead and then Rickmansworth equalies. This left a nervy 10 minutes at the end of the game where both teams were pushing for a winning but fearful of conceding and equaliser. However with only a couple of minutes left the boys managed to breach the Rickmansworth defence and score what was the winning goal.          

Year 7A v Rickmansworth (District League) – Mr Piper

Date : Saturday 26th September 2018

Result : Won 2-1.

Scorers : Finn & Charlie H.

Squad : Kian SM (GK). Charlie.Neo .Aaron C (C).Luke D.Kyle L.David B.Noah B.Charlie H.Finn C.Jake S.

Commended performances : Aaron C, Noah & Charlie H.

Comment : This game was a great test of character, against very talented opposition, which saw us come from 1-0 down to win the game. At the halfway mark the players identified that if they were to achieve the desired result from the game then they had to win their own individual ‘battles’ on the pitch. This was led by players such as Aaron and Noah who set the standard for their teammates, who followed suit. The boys were very happy with their performances and overall result and are once more looking forward to our next training session and fixture.


Year 10 v Watford Girls(District League) – Mrs Cartledge

Year 10 v RMS (District League) – Mrs Wright

Date: Tuesday 2nd October

Result : Lost 36-10

Squad :S Narroway, A Elman, J Benveniste, E Rowe, G Brass, M Hayes, B Patel

Commended performances :S. Narroway for composure and leadership.

Comment : The girls played a brilliant first quarter, scoring 4 goals through an incredibly strong defence.  In summary, for the rest of the match we were outplayed by probably the best team in the league. Despite this, the girls maintained their composure and played with pride and resilience.  After the third quarter our aim was to reach a double digit scoreline and we did this with one minute to spare. A successful outcome for us to put 10 goals past RMS and we were thrilled with that.

Commended performances :R.Aravindan some great defensive interceptions, and excellent finding space to bring the ball down court.

Comment : With almost a full squad in attendance the senior team all played their part in a close and very evenly matched game. With the scoreline swinging between both teams the game was played at a fast pace with the ball quickly transferred from attack to defence. Another draw and we look forward to victory in the next match.
