The PE Department are proud of the sporting successes this term.

Girls Basketball

The Year 7 girls basketball team did exceptionally well at the central venue tournaments, with the boys finishing 1st and 2nd and the girls finishing 2nd out of all local secondary colleges.

Year 8 girls have only lost one match all season.  The girls have done really well this half term, managing to get at least 10 players for each game, all of which are really keen and eager to represent the college. The season started really well with two consecutive wins against Brune Park and Bridgemary on a large scale. The girls were all so pleased! The last two games have unfortunately been a loss against Bay House and Portchester, just missing out through lack of defence and aggression. Well done to you all, you have been a credit to Henry Cort and we are excited to see what Year 9 Basketball brings for you next year!

Year 9 girls are currently undefeated!  We are extremely pleased with the year 9 girl’s basketball team. Their attitude and dedication to the team this year has been amazing and this has not gone unnoticed. As a result of this, the girls are currently undefeated, having won their 4 previous matches to Portchester, Fareham Academy, Cams Hill and Bridgemary. Ellie Cherrington has been the star of the team receiving player of the match on several occasions and scoring numerous baskets over all 4 games. Well done Girls!
