Year 7 Girls Basketball Team - Schools Sport Games

The Year 7 girls Basketball squad travelled over to Moulton school to play in the district round competition on Wednesday 1st February.

This was the girls’ first competitive match and they really rose to the challenge! The girls worked hard against some tough opposition and ended up winning 8-2 at the final whistle.

This means the girls are through to the next round where they will represent South Northants.



Year 10 Netball County Plate

On Monday 6th Feb we took a Squad of 10 Girls to the Under 15 Netball County Plate at Kettering Buccleuch Academy. We were up against 12 other schools from across the county and were in no doubt that we had a tough day ahead of us.

We started the day with two fantastic results, winning 9-1 against Lodge Park Academy and 9-2 against Silverstone UTC. A special mention to Cosima Addison for showing real resilience and determination in our first game where she was put under extreme pressure from her Goal Defence. We had a tough game next against Brook Weston and whilst we pulled together as a team and had a fantastic performance from Elaina Flavey, the final result was 8-4 in their favour. The next two games we made a number of changes on court, showing real depth in our squad and were able to win both convincingly 11-0 against KBA and 9-2 against Wrenn Academy. The final game in the First round was against NSG and whilst we had starting to tire we still played some amazing Netball and showed fantastic team spirit wining 8-4.



Year 7 Girls Football

After a successful run of games; the Year 7 Girls Football team are through to the finals of the County Cup! The girls played remarkably well throughout the whole game but the second half was where all the action happened.
The equalising goal came from Nicole who, with great build up from the team, found her way through to score after coming one on one with their goalkeeper. This gave the girls a huge boost and they really upped their game, which resulted in Sponne’s second goal. A well taken corner from Nicole was met by Skye whose goal shot the girls to victory.

The girls should be extremely proud of their performance throughout the competition and will be heading into the finals with determination.
The Coach’s Player was Nicole due to her effort and stamina on the pitch, always running to track the ball back and defend but driving forward to create a scoring opportunity.



Indoor Rowing Competition

Wednesday 11th January saw Sponne host the School Games indoor rowing competition. This event comprises of 2 female students and 2 male students per year group, rowing for a set time against the other schools. The students also take part in a team challenge which involves 4 female or male rowers, completing a total distance of 2017m between them in the quickest time. Expectations were high after winning a number of the age categories last year and they did not disappoint!

There were some excellent results with Sophie Jeffery, Anna Woodman and Catrin Sinclair all coming 1st in their individual event. Eleanor McConnell, Coby Jones-Swanson, Finn Tyson and James French also finished 2nd in their events, putting us in a great position going in to the team challenges. Both girls teams finished 1st in their team race, some considerable distance ahead of the other teams and both boys teams finished a nail-biting 2nd place.



Mud, Blood and Music Composition Project

The ‘Mud, Blood and Music Composition Project was a composition competition which attracted entries 7 secondary schools across the county, hosted by Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust. The stimulus for this project was the movie of the battle of the Somme (1916) and the composer Laura Rossi who was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum to write a soundtrack to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the battle 10 years ago.

Year 10 and year 12 students from Sponne wrote compositions to accompany the silent film. The school was invited to select finalists for a workshop and awards evening where the best entries were played and discussed with Laura Rossi.
