The year 8 rugby team played Lawrence Sheriff on a cold Saturday morning. The team warmed up professionally led by skipper Ben.
Southam started quickly and soon scored their first try through Jaden after a smart pick and go from the base of the scrum. The second try came almost immediately from the resulting kick off after Callum made a good tackle before offloading to Brendon to touch down.
The game ebbed and flowed before Ben scored his first try of the season which was an individual effort, picking and going from the scrum from 5 metres out. Logan scored his first conversion of the day. The fourth try of the morning was scored by Rory after strong running. James scored another try after fine running before Lawrence Sheriff scored a good team try in the corner. Southam responded quickly, scoring their final try of the first half after Callum offloaded to James who touched down before Paul converted. A half time score of 38-5 to Southam.
The second half continued in the same fashion, Ash continued his great try scoring form and scored before converting himself. Zsombor scored a terrific solo try running in from the half way line and touching down under the posts. Southam were strong in the rucks and didn’t allow Sheriff any time to play which allowed Cameron to score after a quick break from Brendon. Jaden scored his second try of the game after good forward play before Zsombor scored another try with the final play of the game after continued pressure in the Sheriff 22. Final score 69-5 to Southam.
The year 8 boys conducted themselves fantastically well and played with great enthusiasm and determination. They were rewarded with their biggest win of the season. Well done boys.
Yesterday’s House Sport proved to be the most exciting. Amazing turnout from both houses with incredible atmosphere on the sidelines.

Strange weather at Southam College
8LA2 French impressed Madame Galvin today with their dramatic “bullétins de méteo” – weather reports detailing some extra strange weather all over la France. Clear, confident performances came from Ben B, Gracie G, Rosie M and Alex E.
Many inventive props found their way into the reports, merci à Jolene E for her fake snow, Bo S for her fake rain and la classe entière for their enthusiasm in making sure we were ‘couvert de neige’.
Special mention has to go to Bill A for his effort incroyable making his own weather map of France. A really sucessful performance from all, practising key structures confidently and improving our pronunication.
Merci à tous! Madame Galvin
The year 8 Netball Team took a tough win against Campion on Thursday 11th October 2018.
The girls did not get off to a great start and were losing in the first quarter 1-4 to Campion. Each quarter of the match the girls improved their performance and as a result they fought from behind to finally win 7-6. Mae Quinney was nominated player of the match from the opposition and quite rightly achieved; she worked so hard throughout the matchconstantly moving up and down the court to link the attack and defence. Emily Levitt was brilliant in defence, she displayed such a gutsy performance and made some outstanding interceptions. Holly Hart and Ruby Jackson worked well in the circle and managed to score in the windy conditions. Milly Hathaway was fantastic, she really controlled the game well and made some brilliant interceptions. Ellie Miller and Abbie Mawby were great in attack helping to feed the ball into the shooters. Amelia Blumberger and Flo Parry worked well in defence, blocking shots and intercepting key passes to gain possession. All in all they worked well as a team and showed true resilience to make a come back right up to the final quarter.
Well done to you all, Miss Evans.
Well done girls – true fighting spirit to come back and win a close encounter. Keep working together and you will grow as a team. Mr Elkerton
