Swimming Gala 2018

This morning has been filled with some outstanding swimming! The year 8 and 9 boys started the morning off with Godiva taking an early lead, Shakespeare closely following in 2nd place. Outstanding performances from Duncan Storey, Hudson Byatt and the Godiva relay team.

The year 8 and 9 girls competition proved to be a lot closer than expected, outstanding performances from Isabel Sharp, Charlotte Everest and Chloe Thompson for their individual events. Overall, Whittle took the lead and the competition began to become exciting!

The year 7s then entered the pool and the atmosphere was electric!! Both the boys and girls cheered each other on, supporting their hoseu in every race. All houses had outstanding swimmers, it had to come down to the last couple of races. Shakespeare took first place in both relays, therefore snatching first place for the year 7s. Whittle and Webb Ellis drew in the final race and this meant that Whittle took 3rd place! Zoe Sayers and Nancy Ovington had an extremely tense medley race, with Zoe stealing the lead on the breaststroke leg.

Overall a fantastic morning, every individual who took part gave their all and the support on the sideline was brilliant. Well done everyone who performed and thank you to the sports leaders for their help with timing.

Shoe Box Appeal

With Christmas around the corner, it’s time to think of gifts. Years 7 and 8 have begun to bring in wrapped shoeboxes filled with gifts for children in Romania and Ukraine. Our partner school, Bilton School, collected 85 shoe boxes, so please help Southam College students get in more boxes by 7th December.


On Monday afternoon a team of six Southam College Y7 & Y8 students entered the inaugural Inclusive Sportshall Athletics Championships at Campion School.
The team of Harry T, Blake C, Reuban T, Charlie H, Luke R and Cornell R had to each compete across a variety of disciplines consisting of Javelin, Speed Bounce, High Stepper, Chest Throw, Standing Long Jump and a Relay.
The whole team performed brilliantly throughout the afternoon and each contributed points towards the teams final total.
Cornell and Blake both broke the Javelin record with throws of over 28m, Harry and Charlie both jumped further than their overall height. Reuban won the High Stepper, whilst Luke anchored the team home in the Relay races.
As the results were read out at the and of the day, the Southam team had won each event meaning that the boys finished in first place. This was just reward for their efforts and fantastic team work throughout the day.
Well done boys.
