Year 9 'Go Sail'

Some of our hardworking Year 9 pupils were excited to go on a 'Go Sail' trip yesterday.  The trip comprised of two parts, the first was a visit to the Land Rover BAR where they were taught about the technologies used and developed for Ben Ainsley's sailing team for the America's cup. They experienced how some of these technologies are used. Pupils made a sail (called a wing) and then tested it in a wind tunnel to see how the shape of the wing affects the performance of the boat. They benefited from a unique behind-the-scenes experience with hands-on interactive exhibits, close contact with the boats, people, and technologies that allow the Land Rover BAR team to fly faster and sail smarter! If this wasn't enough the second part of the trip involved Year 9 pupils sailing for real at Portsmouth Water Sports Centre.  It was an interesting and motivating afternoon out and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. These trips will continue until half term.

Summer Music Recital

We were delighted to showcase some of our pupils' musical talents last night at our summer music recital evening.  A selection of pupils from year groups across the school (with the exception of Year 11 who were studying hard for their imminent GCSE exams) took to the stage to perform a great range of musical items.  The performances included a selection of singing, piano, banjo, flute, guitar and so much more.  Thanks to everyone who attended and a big well done to all the pupils who took part in this lovely evening of musical performances.

Year 10 Boys' Football Team Win Portsmouth Cup

Springfield school played Admiral Lord Nelson on Tuesday, 25th April in the Portsmouth Under 15’s News Cup Final, after knocking Priory School out in the semi-finals. Springfield started the game slowly in the first half but eventually grew into the game. In the first half, there were a few chances for springfield that should have been scored but there were no real chances for the Admiral side. After half time it was still 0-0 even after George Burgess (10S) put a ball into the box from a free kick which was met by a header from Jacob Mulligan (10R) but the goal was disallowed. The deadlock was broken by Tom Bullock (10S), who scored from a Rhys Lloyd (10D) cross. The score wasn’t 1-0 for long as a well worked goal from the midfield led to an inside-the-box finish from Eddie Davies (10E) assisted again by Rhys Lloyd (10D). After going 2-0 down Admiral made a valiant effort, ending in a goal where the goalkeeper was beaten. In the last 10 minutes, Springfield battled well and held the ball to hold onto the victory. This ended with a hard earned win from a strong, Springfield side.
