Leadership Courses - April 2010
Even though it was the first day back after the Easter holidays, 60 students still came into school to participate in one of four leadership courses being offered by the School Sports Partnership.
The leadership awards on offer were tag rugby leaders, junior football organiser, junior netball organiser and basketball leaders. All of these were delivered free of charge to the students by experienced coaches.
We were lucky as the weather stayed nice all day allowing the practical element of the courses to be delivered in the sunshine!
These courses can lead on to Level 1 coaching qualifications and many opportunities for the students within their sports, both in clubs that they may currently play for and when working with some of our Primary schools within the Cherwell Family. This is an area that we are hoping to develop by giving these students a chance to put what they have learnt into practice.Congratulations to everyone who attended as everyone succeeded in gaining a leadership award which makes for a very successful day
Year 7 Sports Hall Athletics
City Schools Final
Tuesday 25th November saw the first ever Year 7 Sports Hall Athletics final for the City Secondary Schools.
This was a follow on from our individual events for year 7 which took place earlier on this year.
The Cherwell School selected a team of 15 students who had shown, not only talent in particular athletic events, but also good sportsmanship to both team mates and fellow competitors. The 8 boys and 7 girls then selected / were allocated events that would suit their abilities but also ones that they would enjoy.
Our team consisted of: Timon Williams, Josh Smile, AJ George, Raheem Bryan-Williams, Miles Welch-Hayes, Calvin Tse, Jacob Senior, Jayvonne Mckenzie, Lula Birnie, Isabella Sanghera, Harriet Turner, Alice Finch, Kate Brockie, Rhiannon Hodgson and Amy Busby.
There was an exciting atmosphere as we reached Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre and we saw the other schools that we would be competing against. These included Cheney, Oxford School, St Gregory the Great and Oxford Academy.
The afternoon was again split into 'track' events and 'field' events and followed the same format as the Primary events. It was great to hear one of our students remembering doing a similar event when they were in their Primary school. This cohort would have been in Year 5 when the City schools were in the first year of the School Sports Partnership Programme; so it's good to know that the SSP had an effect on our Primary students and that it is beginning to filter up into the Secondary schools thus promoting and raising standards in high quality PE both in and out of the curriculum.
We were left waiting for the overall results but it was worth waiting for as Cherwell came 1st! The points were awarded so that 1st place received 1 point; 2nd place, 2 points and so on. This meant that the team with the lowest score was the winner.
Cherwell's overall score was just 48 points which we gained from 30 possible events which shows how well we did and how many of the events ended in a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place!
All students appeared to enjoy competing against other schools in the City and the afternoon as a whole. It is definitely an event I would like to see repeated in future years.

Year 7 Sports Hall Athletics
On Monday 22nd September, The Cherwell School hosted its first ever Year 7 Sports Hall Athletics event. A range of activities were chosen to allow all children to participate and demonstrate their skills of running, jumping and throwing.
The day was organised by splitting the Year 7 year group into two. Five classes of which competed in the morning and the remaining five classes competed in the afternoon. By competing in an event, they gained points for their class and the amount of points was dependant on their finishing position.
After both competitions were finished, we were able to add up the points to see which Year 7 class was the winning team.
The event was not just aimed at the 'sporty' children within the year group but encouraged all students to take part, so it really was a whole class event. Less physically demanding roles included: vertical jump, indoor javelin, chest push or could even be taking on the role of team manager or field event officials.
There really was something for everyone!
The overall aim of the event was to attempt to aid the transition into Year 7 by putting on an event that many of them would be familiar with. This is due to similar Sports Hall Athletics events being run in the feeder Primary schools through the School Sports Partnership.
It was also hoped that the event would help build class cohesion, cooperation and encouragement of one another. Judging from the cheers from the supporting class mates, I think the event helped significantly!
This is definitely an event that we would like to repeat in the years to come!
