Bushey St James Trust Basketball Festival – November 30th 2018

It was fantastic on Friday 30th November to welcome 66 Year 5 students from Hartsbourne and Little Reddings Primary Schools for the first of our BSJT sports festivals. The event was led by 13 Bushey Meads Year 11 Level 1 Sports Leaders who were tasked with planning a series of basketball coaching sessions to introduce the game to the primary students. This included sessions in dribbling, passing, shooting, pivoting and attack v defence situations. Students from LRS and HPS showed great enthusiasm and it was great to see their skill level improve as the morning progressed. After 45 minutes of coaching the 6 teams then played some matches which were coached and officiated by the BMS leaders. The event proved a great success and it was really pleasing to see students so actively engaged in a new sport.

This is a brilliant new development and we look forward to more festivals in handball, gymnastics, tag rugby and quik cricket coming up next year.




Date : Tuesday 4th December 2018

Results :

Scorers :

Squad : Aaron Clark,Jake Sims,Finn Carpenter, Jayden Wheeler, Ashley Douglas-Grant, Jack Loison, Abbas Parpia,Mylan Nedjip, Neo Mitchell, Aman Rahman, Kayvan S, Kian S.

Commended performances : Jake Sims.

Comment : The boys were involved in a competitive Rugby tournament, excellently hosted by staff at Watford rugby club. This was the vast majority of the squads first experience of rugby outside of a PE lesson. Given that, they gave an excellent performance and worked hard as a team to compete with the other school in attendance. The boys will benefit greatly from being involved within these games and many have expressed their interest in taking part in rugby outside of school.


Year 10 Netball V Rickmansworth (h) – Mrs Cartledge

Date: Thursday 29th December 2018

Results: Lost 18-14

Squad- S Narroway, A Hutchison, J Benveniste, M Hayes, A Elman, E Rowe, G Brass.

Commended performances: Voted by Rickmansworth – Georgia Brass.

Comment- This was a tough game for the year 10’s due to the height of the Rickmansworth girls. It was very difficult to feed the ball into our shooting circle. The girls worked so hard in attack and defence and never gave up. In the last quarter we managed to win the quarter which shows the determination and resilience of the girls.

Year 11 GCSE PE v Bushey Academy (a) – Mrs Cooper

Date : Monday 3rd December 2018

Result : Win 14-11

Squad : A.Qarib, V.Mishra, K.Pabari, D.Sivakumar, L.Srishankar, A.Wells-Harbin

Commended performances :A.Qarib for great shooting

Comment:This was a great opportunity for the girls in the year 11 GCSE class to demonstrate their netballing skills in a ‘mockeration’ scenario.  Students need to be assessed in GCSE PE activities in both practice and competitive situations and this was the ideal situation. It was a closely contested game with goals being traded at either end, some solid shooting by the BMS team proved the difference and enabled us to secure victory.  We look forward to the return match in the new year.

Yr 8 v Queens (h) Mrs Wright

Date : Wednesday 5th December 2018

Result : Lost 14-3

Squad : S. Lea (captain), M. Sanchez. H. Nabi, A  Wolstenholme, F. Hadden, A. Lobb, G. Pugh, A. Choudhury

Commended performances : Sophie Lea was nominated as player of the match by the Queen’s team.  Well done Sophie.

Comment: After a slow start and trailing by 7-1 in the first quarter we battled hard for the remainder of the game.  As the game progressed we slowed down the passing and made better decisions at our own pace.  This allowed us to score two more goals in the final three quarters.  A much better performance in the second half of the game, especially as we lost our goal shooter in this section of the match too due to injury!
