    On Wednesday 28 June the U13 athletics team headed to the Thames Valley Athletics Centre for the RBWM Athletics League Finals.

    Throughout the morning the boys showed excellent team performance.  In the two previous league meetings the team had qualified in third place in what was a very tight competition between 12 schools. On finals day, the two stand out performances were from Jaco Overturf who won the Long Jump and Gabriel Baker who won the 800 metres breaking the existing school record. However all fifteen members of the team performed well with numerous high placed finishes, thus enabling the team to score well in all events and win the competition.

    Boys in Year 7 took a trip to Birmingham last Saturday for the Micromouse competition. The School takes part in this competition every year with a group of Year 7s who make their own robots during the Design and Technology after school club. On the day they compete in three events; the line follower, the drag race and the maze solving event.

    In the line follower event the robotic mouse has to follow a 19mm wide white line on a black background around a circuit.  It has to negotiate curves as tight as 150mm radius, long straights and crossovers.  The winner is the mouse that completes the course in the fastest time.

  • Rowers Prepare For Henley Regatta

    Published 08/06/17

    Claires Court had their J18 4x and 8+ racing at the Metropolitan Regatta on the 3 and 4 June. It was a race to prepare the crew for the Henley Regatta in three weeks’ time.

    The quad were up first in J18 4x. In fast conditions they set out to put together a decent piece and see what they could do, or at least that was what they thought the plan was! With some of the boys easing off halfway down the track and some of them taking it up, it was with great delight/surprise that they somehow punched out a time faster than the national schools record and took the win and the course record in the process. Going into the final they had the fastest time but it was too close for comfort; the crew from Globe rowing club took the early lead which they extended at half way. Claires Court boys then needed to put the afterburners on which they did to draw themselves up into contention. With 500m to go the boys went again to move into the lead which they extended approaching the line to take the win by just over half a length.
