The start of a new term sees the start of a new programme of sport and physical activity practices, clubs and competitive fixtures. Last year many of our students took the opportunity to build on their performance in lessons by attending the many extra-curricular clubs that are available at lunchtime and after school. This year we will be holding clubs in football, basketball, rugby, hockey, table tennis, badminton, gymnastics, trampolining, cricket, rounders, tennis, cheerleading, boxercise, yoga, fitness, SEN sport and athletics as well as our very popular lunchtime recreational sports clubs for each year group. Many of the clubs are run by the PE and Health Faculty staff with additional clubs being provided by the Hertfordshire Sports Partnership. Clubs take place at lunchtime and after club and this is supplemented by an extensive range of friendly, District and County competitive sports fixtures. All are free of charge and open to all students.

For full details of the clubs, fixtures and practices students and parents need to check on the Bushey Meads School website in the Calendar icon where you will find a full list of the extra-curricular activities. This is updated on a weekly basis to show the fixtures and practices for each week.

In addition students can check the notice boards in the boys and girls changing rooms. The PE and Health Faculty also have their own Twitter account which includes regular updates on fixtures, match reports and details of forthcoming events.

Students selected for teams will receive team sheets with start and finish times. Some clubs may change week by week depending on fixtures and meetings but parents should check the twitter account and the website for updates.

For any parental enquiries about any aspects of PE contact the Head of PE and Health Faculty Ashley Cartledge [email protected] . For any specific issues related to Girls PE and girls fixtures contact Sarah Cooper [email protected].

Comment : Our first district league game saw us away at Bushey Academy where we introduced our new attacking formation. This was a positive outing for us, which saw us take a 3-1 lead into the back end of the second half. Unfortunately, we conceded two late goals which meant that we drew the game, but we are very happy with our teams performance in the league and are looking forward to our next game!

Comment: Our first district league game of the season saw us come up against a good Queens B side on a fine saturday morning. The team was only introduced to their new formation earlier that week so was always going to take a few matches to get used too. This turned out to be a positive outing for the team, which saw us win 6-4; turning a 2-0 deficit around. There was some fantastic play from the whole team in the second half, which are very encouraging signs for the rest of the season.

Comment : Monday saw our year 8A team play their second District League game away at Bushey Academy. After a strong performance against Queens B on Saturday the team came into the came full of confidence. However due to a slow start to the game it saw us into halftime trailing with a lot of work to do to get something out of the game. The team responded well in the second half but unfortunately were unable to turn the halftime deficit around. There are plenty of positives that can be taken from the second half display into their next game.
