Bouncing into 3rd Place


3rd Place

Cockshut Hill girls basketball team took part in the Birmingham School Games this afternoon taking 3rd place. A massive thank you to 5 year 9 students and 5 year 7 students who played tremendously well. We won our pool, winning all 3 of the games:

  • 20-0 St Edmund Campion
  • 12-0 Bishop Challenge
  • 14-0 Holly Lodge
As a result Cockshut Hill went into the semi final on a high and unfortunately we lost the first game 4-0 Heartlands School. However, we went on to win the second game 8-6  taking third place overall, out of 9 schools!  We are extremly proud of our year 9s leading and working well under pressure and prouder still of our year 7s playing in a year 9 tournament!!
Above all, team Cockshut rightly went on to win ‘the best team work’ award for the competition in true Cockshut spirit!


Globality House Geocaching Competition

After a week of form-time quizzing the final Geocaching competition took place on Friday. Once the satellites had woken up, our nominated students from each house went hunting! The students were a credit to the houses they represented and I think we may have ignited a few with a passion for Geocaching. Congratulations to the winners, OAK house.
The overall results:

Sky Sports project: Oval Primary

On Thursday 21st January the year 10 Sky Sports project group welcomed the Oval Primary School. The group organised a fantastic football tournament with the year 4 students. The tournament was organised and carried out entirely by the Sky Sports group. Staff and parents commented saying it was incredible to watch and really fun for everybody involved. Students were a credit to the school and community. A great way to end the project.
