Under 16 Basketball Finals

The CAP Under 16 boys basketball team secured a memorable Valentine’s Day and a third district title in four seasons by beating Netherhall and Chesterton in the finals held at Long Road.

The team, comprising of boys from Parkside, Coleridge and Trumpington had an unbeaten run to secure their place in the finals. The semi-final against Netherhall went the same way as all of the early season games with a fast start with Luca Vicini providing the leadership and pressure allowing Josh Simon to score the early baskets.  With a 26-6 lead at half-time Coach Foulkes was able to make sure all players contributed on court. Matas Cockcroft made an immediate impact with strong drives to the basket and three quick baskets to his name. The game ended with a highlight of the day, perhaps, with Karl Holmes calmly scoring a 3-pointer as the buzzer went to close out the game. 40-16 full-time score.

The final pitted us against Chesterton, rivals through the age groups for this group of CAP players. We had lost out in Year 9 but were victorious last year albeit with players who are now at Sixth Form college. Chesterton had won their semi-final convincingly and the third-fourth playoff was close between Netherhall and Cottenham. Again we had our trademark strong start and lead 6-0 after less than two minutes. At 8-2 in front our attacks stuttered a little and Chesterton took their opportunities putting further pressure on CAP. We took a slender lead into half-time 12-10. The second half started with the first basket to us after which Chesterton got back into the game further, even taking the lead at one point. Both teams were in foul trouble in the second half with every further foul resulting in free-throws to the opposition. We were able to get our noses back in front through Luca Vicini and with Chesterton chasing possession and giving away further control we were able to get a little control back. Into the dying seconds of the game Alfie Bruce Doig was able to extend our lead to 3 with one successful free throw. With 1.8 seconds remaining Chesterton took a time out. All that was left was for us to get the ball into play safely. The buzzer sounded signalling a 25-22 win for CAP.

Holocaust Memorial Day Civic Ceremony

It has been such a privilege for our choir to perform a specially commissioned song written by Michael Rosen at this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day service in Cambridge. It has also been amazing for over 450 of our students from across our family of schools to work in partnership with History Works and Eva Clarke over this past month.

Coleridge Visit to Corpus Christi

As part of the ongoing HP Club initiative, 30 Coleridge students visited our partner college Corpus Christi on the morning of Thursday 17th. The students were given a valuable insight into University life, the college system, how to apply to University as well as a tour of the college itself. Meeting with current undergraduates gave our students the opportunity to ask questions and investigating the huge variety of degree courses on offer will hopefully have sowed some seeds of inspiration for the future.

In the future, our contact at Corpus Christi has also offered to come to Coleridge to offer other students an opportunity to access this valuable insight and this is definitely an offer we intend to take up.
