Welcome to the PE departments News page. On these pages you will find the latest news on extra-curricular clubs and fixtures.
We are very proud of the students sporting achievements at Sawtry and we encourage as many students as possible to take a full and active part in the clubs we offer.
Please look at the autumn clubs timetable to see what is on offer at the college. All clubs are open to any student regardless of ability or previous experience. After school clubs will begin at 3.30pm and finish at 4.30pm.
On occasions it is necessary to move clubs to different days in order to accommodate fixtures. Please see the weekly PE notice that will appear below to confirm the arrangements for each week. If you have any questions regarding any aspect of Physical Education at the college please do not hesitate to contact me.
A copy of the fixtures for the year can be found on these pages, however please bear in mind these may change in order to fit in cup fixtures. For an up to date summary of what is happening each week please refer to the weekly bulletin.
Every student at Sawtry has the opportunity to take a full and active part in Extra Curricular PE. In 2011-12 Sawtry achieved some fantastic success on the sports field. Not only did we win a significant amount of trophies last year we also had the highest number of students representing the college as we have ever had. This is a reflection of the hard work of the college staff and the students involved in these teams. For a school of our size to regularly take on and beat schools much bigger and with better facilities than ourselves is something we are rightly proud of. I encourage all students to come along to the clubs on offer and hopefully we will win even more trophies.

After beating Stanground, Jack Hunt and St Ivo in the previous rounds the sixth form football team played Hinchingbrooke in the county cup final this afternoon.
The lads showed great team sprit and determination in difficult windy conditions.
In the first 20 minutes Sawtry took a 2 - 0 lead, however towards the end of the half Hinchingbrooke came back to draw 2-2 at half-time.
Second half the students dug in and played exceptionally well scoring four goals with the final score 6-2.
Zack Fisher scored 5 goals and Tom Hughes rounded off the scoring.
Credit must go to all the lads who worked very hard to bring the trophy to Sawtry. Congratulations to you all.

Hockey District Champions
At the end of last term, Miss Davies took both the Yr 7’s and a combined Yr 10/11 team to their Annual District Tournaments.
The Year 7’s throughout their practice matches on Wednesday afternoons certainly improved significantly - they are a team of defensive tacklers but sadly they lack a natural striker. When it came to the final tournament of the term, they played with amazing spirit and although they didn’t score a goal, they didn’t concede one either which was a massive achievement. They came 4th out of 8th and hopefully we will build on this next year.
The Year 10/11’s always had the ability to do well but it was made more difficult when absences meant we attended with a player short. The skill and team work of the girls that did attend however, ensured that they RETAINED their DISTRICT CHAMPION STATUS, which was huge credit to the girls that played.
16th January 2013: Year 9 Girls Basketball: District Champions!
Last night Miss Davies took a Year 9 Girls basketball team to St Peters to play in the District Basketball Championship. Although the girls love basketball SCC doesn't have time to teach it during curriculum lessons so SCC attended the Championship with a ‘joie de vivre’ spirit, having only had 2 adhoc practices.
To cut a very long story short, the team dug in, the girls listened to some very simple ways to transfer their netball skills to basketball dribbling and guarding.........and SCC WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP! Full credit must go the girls for their excellent team spirit and listening skills on what was a freezing evening.
21st November 2012:Year 10 Netball:
Tonight the Year 10 Netball team went to St Ivo to play in a friendly tournament. During the league the scores were;
Won 11 - 1 v Longsands
Won 5 - 3 v St Ivo
Won 2 - 0 v St Peters
Drew 3 - 3 v Hinchingbrooke
We then played Hinchingbrooke again in the final and they beat us 2 - 3 during a short 5 minute one way match.
19 November 2012: English Schools Football Competition: The following Year 9 and 10 girls took part in the 4th round of the English Schools Football Competition, playing at home against Comberton, kicking-off 2.30pm to beat the light. We won 3-2, scary finish after being 3-0 up!
Here's to round 5!
19 November 2012: County Cup
The Year 7 football team played Cromwell (Chatteris) in the county cup. The new squad seems to be coming together with an 8-1 victory with many a good performance. They now go on to face Northampton School for Boys in the 5th round of the National cup on Friday.
17th November 2012: Year 9 Rugby tournament
The Year 9s travelled to Longsands in St Neots to play in the Hunts district championships. On a wet and rainy morning the lads battled very well against strong opponents. Unfortunately though the team ended up finishing third and just missing out on qualification to the regional tournament.
Jack Starkey, Sam Tuckwood and Luke Lockhead in particular had excellent performances. It was also nice to see the support from their parents who turned up to watch the students who once again were a credit to the school.
6th November 2012: Years 9 and 10 football vs Kimbolton: The Year 10 team won 8:0 with a strong team performance with good attacking play. The Year 9 team also won 3:1. Well done to both teams.
6th November 2012 English Schools Football Competition Years 9 and 10 Girls Football: SCC won 6:0 against Stantonbury, Milton Keynes. Goals from Beth Miller x 2, Nicole Stefanelli x 2, Megan Purnell and Holly Jonson. Well done!

Miss Christian is very proud to announce that the 10 year 8 girls that competed in School Games County Competiton for rounders on Tuesday.They WON and are now Cambridgeshire County Champions.
They played 3 games in their pool and won 2, drew 1 which meant they were through to the Semi Finals where they faced Comberton Village College. They won this game comfortably and were through to the Finals. We won the toss and chose to field first. The fielding from the girls was consistently excellent with no more than 6 rounders scored by the other teams in 5 games.
The final was against Ely Community College, they scored 1 and a half rounders in their innings. Then it was our turn to bat and with one good ball left the scores where tied; Up stepped Hannah Ainsworth to the batting box, and she hit the ball past the out fielders and scored a rounder to win the game!
They represented the school perfectly, great manners, great sportsmanship; overall a credit to Sawtry Community College and are now Cambridgeshire County Champions.
Congratulations to the following girls on their outstanding performance:

Wednesday 20th June : Year 7 District Rounders Champions
Last night was the annual DISTRICT ROUNDERS CHAMPIONSHIP held at St Ivo. Previously the SCC Year 7 team has battled hard but have never won a match. After copious amounts of practice and hard work, we went last night with the desire to do well, have fun and hold a good team spirit!
They were amazing, quite unbelievable and Miss Davies has never been so proud....we took the title of YEAR 7 ROUNDERS CHAMPIONS! The girls actually won the whole competition before the last round of matches had been played.
Year 8 District Rounders Tournament
Last night SCC took 2 year 8 teams to the District Tournament, both played very well.

The 2nd team cheered on the 1st team to their victory, displaying great camaraderie!

Thursday 29th March 2012 Football Results: Cambridgeshire County Cup Champions
Yesterday our Yr10 Football team became Cambridgeshire schools county cup champions beating Comberton 3-1. A strong start saw Sawtry take a 2-0 lead with goals from Mitchell Taylor and Sam Brooks. An Alex Metcalfe goal was disallowed which would have put us 3-0 up. Comberton came back strongly and pulled a goal back before half time. In the second half we were under a lot of pressure but with James Brunning and Dan Colburt marshalling the defence well the boys held firm. Jamie Rutter and Chris Smith both hit the bar, with six minutes remaining substitute Josh Watson scored to make it 3-1.
The team were a credit to the school. Congratulations!
Wednesday 28th March 2012
Congratulations to the Year 7 Football team who made it through to the County Cup final. Sadly Sawtry Cc lost the match 4:2 but the team played very well.
Year 10/11 District Hockey Champions 28 March 2012
In our last set of Hockey matches last night the Yr 10/11 Girls made Miss Davies very proud in retaining the DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP title. Our girls played brilliantly well, considering that 3 of them had been in PE exams all week and looked absolutely exhausted before they started! It was a hot evening and although they started off quite slowly, the team pulled together and finished with a 5 – 0 flurry against Hinchingbrooke.
Tuesday 29th November: English Schools Cup
The Year 8's played a very strong team from Lancaster Sports College from Leicester. The game was 1-1 until the final 10 minutes where Lancaster SC showed some quality from some very talented players and scored a great team goal. Sawtry CC went searching for a equalizer instead conceding two more late goals with Lancaster SC scoring on the break.
The year 8 football team have had a very successful season so far losing only 1 match in 7 played so far.
Thursday 24th November: RAF Rugby Tournament
Year 9 played in the RAF Rugby tournament performing extremely well and showing lots of passion. The lads came through their group beating Kings, Bourne Grammer and Sir Harry Smiths. They then battled very hard against Stanground in the semi-final winning 1 try to 0. In the final we faced a very strong TDA side with many strong rugby players. The lads showed plenty of sprit and determination but unfortunately lost 10-5.
Although disappointed by the defeat in the final they were all very happy with their runner up medals and trophy.
Tuesday 15th November: County Cup
The Year 7 team played St Neots CC in the 2nd round of the county cup. As a squad they work very hard and played well, the final score being 5-2 to Sawtry. The team show some promising talent and hopefully will keep improving. On Monday they play Boston Grammar school in the 4th round of the National cup.
Saturday 19th November 2011: Hunts District Rugby Tournament Year 7
On Saturday the year 7’s participated in the Hunts District Rugby Tournament at Hinchingbrooke School. It was an 8.30am start, I don’t think many of the boys had seen that time on a Saturday morning before, and as a result lost their 1st game to St Ivo by 10pts-0. However, some fantastic rugby saw them beat Hinchingbrooke. This meant a deciding game against Ramsey would determine who qualified to the knock out rounds. However, despite having all the possession and being camped on their try line they couldn’t get the ball over the line. The game ended 0-0 and Ramsey progressed through.
Please congratulate the boys if you see them, they have worked extremely hard this year and come a long way.
Year 7 Football 16th November 2011
On Wednesday afernoon the Year 7 boys football team played St Neots CC in the 2nd round of the County Cup. As a squad they worked very hard and played well, the final score being 5-2 to Sawtry. The team are showing some great talent. On Monday they play Boston Grammar school in the 4th round of the National cup.
Girls Football 9th November 2011
Three girls teams played at Hinchingbrooke tonight and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The girls played well and although they tried incredibly hard they came up against some excellent opposition. The Year 11 girls took 2nd place and both the Year 9 and Year 10 teams took 3rd place.
Year 9 District Rugby Championship
On Saturday morning, 5th November, 22 year 9 pupils competed in the Hunts District Rugby championships held at Sawtry.
We entered two teams which allowed all the pupils more playing time.
All the lads competed very well and worked their socks off in 5 different games against surrounding schools.
Sawtry Blue competed well, however only drew one game in the competition.
Sawtry Yellow won 4 games and drew one, winning the competition on tries scored. They now progress to the cambs district finals rugby tournament in the near future.
Year 9 District Hockey Championships 19 October 2011
Last night we travelled to Ernulf for the Year 9 District Hockey Championship. Miss Davies was thoroughly delighted that she had 18 girls desperate to play and they certainly did the College proud on a very cold evening.
The Year 9 B team retained their District Champions title having beaten Hinchingbrooke, St Ivo, Ernulf and St Peters. This was an excellent achievement with a great set of girls who tackled hard.
The Year 9 A team took the Runners Up title .......we had done all the hard work in the early rounds but in our very last match against Longsands (who eventually came 5th), Longsands scored with 30 seconds of the match remaining which lost us the Winners title. The girls played brilliantly well scoring 12 goals and only conceding the dreadful 1. The team that won the tournament scored 6 in the whole evening.
Never let anyone tell you that it’s only a game! The girls did brilliantly but Miss Davies was so disappointed that we lost the A team title in the last 30 seconds having played so brilliantly all evening. Congratulations to all the girls involved anyway, we are very proud of you.
Year 11 District Netball Championship
All the year 11 Girls that participated last night, tried very hard. Unfortunately they were unable to bring home any titles – a shame as it is their last year of Netball Tournaments.
The A team came 4th – losing to Hinchingbrooke, St Ivo A and B team. At times they played lovely netball but were unable to maintain this throughout all their games.
The B team came 7th - this team also had some year 10s playing and they all played very well.
Well done to all the girls involved.
The sixth form played very well against Manor Sports College in the 3rd round of the National Cup. The opposition were very organised and skilful however the sixth form worked very hard and battled well unfortunately losing 2-1 in the end. A special well done to Jason Keightly from year 10 who played in goal as Josh Bennis was injured.
The year 8 team played against a County Cup holders Arthur Mellows in the 1st round in the County Cup competition. The lads worked extremely hard and played some excellent football at times winning 3-1. There next game is the week back after half term in the 4th round of the English schools National Cup.
U13 Girls Football 17 October 2011
Nene Park had a wonderful team, (a couple played for Arsenal), and although the score suggests that the game was onesided, we actually played quite well and should have had a few more goals. The scopre was 8:1. As always the girls were a pleasure to take out and conducted themselves in a delightful manner.
Year 7 District Netball Tournament 12th October 2011
Last night was the Year 7s first Netball tournament and they played some lovely Netball showing lots of potential for future tournaments. The team spirit was fabulous and it was an enjoyable event.
Our A team won 3 games and lost 2, coming 3rd overall.
Our B team won 3 games, lost 3 and drew 1 coming joint 2nd.
They played against Ivo, Ernulf, Hinchingbrooke, St Peters and Longsands.
Well done to the girls and hopefully more successful tournaments ahead!!
Hockey Results:12th October 2011
Last night the girls played amazingly well to bring BOTH Championship titles back to the College. The A team won every game with some excellent hockey and in their 5 matches scored 16 goals and only conceded 1. We played against Hinchingbrooke, Longsands, St Peters, Ernulf and St Ivo.
The B team also won their competition which gave us an overwhelming victory on the night. The commitment the girls have given to Miss Davies in their training sessions has been fabulous and truly paid off.
Football Results 3rd October 2011
Last night the year 8 team played in the second round of the English schools cup, although the team was missing key players they all did exceptionally well and won 4-3, coming from behind 3 times. They now progess into the 3rd round which will be played in 2 weeks.

Sawtry Year 7 Rugby Tournament 21st September 2011
Today saw Sawtry hold the first Year 7 ‘intro to Rugby’ tournament. It was slightly disappointing that a number of local schools did not attend however, it did provide the pupils with much needed game time, and was an opportunity for most to play in their first competitive Rugby Fixtures. All pupils from Sawtry, St Ivo and St Peters participated well and there was some good rugby on show. Sawtry came out about evens after a heavy defeat to a well organised St Ivo team, with a win and a draw against St Peters.

Rugby Results 14 September 2011
The Yr10 Rugby team kicked off the rugby season in style with a 45-3 win over Kings in the National U15 cup. The boys played really well and it was especially pleasing to limit Kings to 3 points.
