S6C Sport Academies
Adam Jones – Director of Sport

I would like to say a huge thank you to all staff for your support of the PE department following the implementation of the new Sport Academies in Netball, Rugby and Football. I have been delighted with the positive impact this has had on the students. 66 students have represented S6C so far and we have already won our first trophy in rugby.  

Admittedly, there have been a few teething problems and to mitigate any slip in standards, students have now signed a player’s contract to clarify the expectations of the college when students are representing S6C on the sports field. Hopefully we will now be able to concentrate on developing skills and winning matches. 

S6C Netball Academy

Just before half term, the netball team played their first match of the season. We’re super proud of their achievements after playing three different teams at SWGS. 

First quarter: S6C 6 v 7 SWGS
Second quarter: S6C 8 v 1 SWGS
Third quarter: S6C 11 v 2 SWGS
Fourth quarter: S6C 3 v 3 SWGS

FINAL SCORE: SWGs 13 Vs 28 S6C       


Started the game off against SWGS best players including some regional players. S6C stood their ground and developed their teamwork and confidence throughout. Some excellent centre passes and turnover balls took SWGS by surprise. Beautiful mid court play with Libby and Jess working nicely with Issy and Ani. Rio worked hard in the shooting circle and Lois developed her defensive play. As the games went on, S6C confidence built with some stronger marking and holding position on the court, especially Flo who really shone. 

A big well done to Libby for being nominated as S6C player of the match by the SWGS team. Rio deserves a special mention for her hard work and commitment to working the shooting circle. A huge thank you to Coach Helen for all of her work so far with the squad and it is exciting to think what more is to come from the S6C squad.

Match report from Coach Helen 

After a nightmare day with four players pulling out from illness and injury we had only six players at 1pm. Thanks to Rio (Captain) for encouraging Eva Howard to play. We did have Izzy but her hands were recovering from an injury. So, from a disjointed start we took on a very organised Burgate 6th Form team in a very positive manner. 

After the first quarter we were down by 4 goals, we drew the second quarter and then Burgate took off in third with an exceptional GS, who did not miss! 

However in the fourth quarter we came back really strong and in the last 5 minutes we were on a roll. Turnover after turnover (Imogen, Izzy and Lois), which we took to goal and scored through Rio and Flo.

We lost the game 20-14 in the end. 

Amazing work rate by Centre court Libby and Jess who Burgate tried to mark out of the game, but these girls took them on and won through. Jess Hearsey Player of the Match, and so well deserved. She had such a positive mindset. 

Well done team, a toughie and lots of physical contact, you met it well and gave as good as you got. 

Looking forward to our next match!

S6C Football Academy

The team spent a long away day playing against Newport in a really tough match. The first half was dominated by us but we found ourselves behind 1-0. Our games have followed the same pattern week after week where we have dominated the game but have not been able to convert opportunities into goals. We were even awarded a penalty which we missed.

The second half of the match was dominated by us with our opponents struggling to match our intensity. However, we could not maximise our chances until the final 10 minutes where we found an equaliser. The team pushed for another goal but unfortunately only found the inside of the post in the last minute. Final result 1-1. 

Coach Ben is confident the team will soon start to convert these dominant performances into wins. A solid start to the Football Academy’s performance.

S6C Football Team

Before half term the S6C football team played a match in the driving rain against SWGS. The team found things tough in the first half and were 5-0 down at half time. At this point a lesser team may have given up, but after James Guetling, teacher of PE, asked for a positive reaction S6C scored twice. Final score 2-8 but most importantly the students loved the opportunity to represent the college in a competitive game!

S6C Rugby Academy

The S6C Rugby Academy has started really well, with a superb performance and win against Bishops and dominant wins against Burgate, Bishops and Ringwood 6th Form in the Burgates 7s tournament which led to the team winning their first trophy. They have been training hard with JK, our Rugby coach, to be ready for a busy November when they will play Burgate, Peter Symonds, Bournemouth College and Brockenhurst College. November will be a huge month where the team can really start to establish a name for themselves.

S6C 37 – 5 Burgate 6th Form

Well done to the Rugby squad, another great performance and result. Good to see Rob Western back! 

The team were a little scrappy at times and over complicated play at times, but credit to Burgate who were tenacious and never gave up. When S6C clicked we played some lovely rugby and scored some cracking tries. 

Lots of standout performers – Coach JK thought Malachai had a good all round game, Rob W was tireless, Ollie G industrious but Christian played a blinder today – big carries, big hits and good decision making. My MOTM! 

We now have a week of training to prepare for a much tougher test against Peter Symonds on 15 November. We haven’t come to take part, but to take over!
