Tuesday 22nd November
Congratulations to all year 9 and 10 girls who played their first 11 a side hockey fixture against the Walden School on Tuesday 22nd November. Everyone played brilliantly showcasing some excellent hockey skills. The standard of play has significantly improved this term and everyone should be very proud of their efforts and performance. The game ended 1-1. Well done girls!
Tuesday 15th November
Gosfield made the long trip to Ely and started off playing against a mixture of A and B team players. The opposition were a little taken aback by the strength of the Gosfield forwards and Michael Freeman capitalised with an excellent early try. Fearing a defeat, the opposition continually strengthened their side, taking a slender 14-12 lead into half time. Chris Crowley was outstanding and scored an excellent try to take the lead early in the second half. Further replacements by the opposition saw them run out victors by 28-19. Year 8 players Charlie Bell, Makai Brown and Kyran Trevain should be commended on their wholehearted efforts. Well done boys.
Monday 14th November
All boys in year 3 and 4 played in matches v St Johns school from Billericay. St Johns proved far more efficient when it counted and easily won both matches. There were notable performances from Austin Willis and Alfie Ratcliffe-Bingham in the ‘A’ team match with Austin rewarded for his hard work with a well taken goal.
Congratulations to Evie Williams (Yr5), Edward Flynn-Haddon (Yr5) and Francis Ulrich (Yr6) for their fantastic performances at the Junior ISA Swimming Competition on Wednesday. They all competed in the breaststroke and freestyle events. All three swam excellent times and did themselves and Gosfield School proud. Well done!

UPDATE 21st NOVEMBER
Conditions underfoot for the run on Wednesday are very wet. For safety purposes we are recommending that ALL runners wear football boots.
Our annual Cut Hedge Trophy Cross Country Competition is continuing to grow in popularity with an increasing number of independent and maintained schools from across Essex taking part.
Its success may be because of our 100 acres of beautiful parkland or the high likelihood of being covered in mud; whichever it is this year's event is shaping up to be the biggest yet, helping us to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in style.
Races will be held in the following categories:
• Under 11's (Years 5 and 6) girls' and boys' races
• Under 13's (Year 7 and 8) girls' and boys' races
Each school can enter up to 6 children per team.
Gosfield School teams
We will of course be entering our own teams across all of the race categories. You are more than welcome to come along for the morning to cheer on all the runners and support your own children. The competition briefing begins at 10am in the Sports Hall with the results and final presentations being made at approximately 11.45am. Please do not arrive before 9.30am.
School Team registrations
To register your team please download the Team Registration Form and follow the instructions. Completed forms must be returned to Gosfield School by Wednesday 16th November.
As with all outdoor activities scheduled in the winter months we will need to check weather and ground conditions nearer to the time. Updates or changes to the competition will be available on our website.
