Miss Blunt, Enrichment and Children's University coordinator commented “It was a fabulous event in a beautiful setting and we were all inspired by the ceremony and guest speakers, Mayor of The West Midlands Andy Street, Councillor Stuart Davis Mayor of Solihull and Professor Carl Chinn. We are so proud of our students and what they have achieved. The only challenge was re-locating their caps after they were all thrown in the air in celebration on the Aston Webb steps!”

Congratulations to our fantastic Year 9 Softball Team who have won the Level 2 Tournament! Details of the tournament as follows:-
Game 1 - John Henry Newman
A resounding victory in our first game due to some excellent early fielding. Knowing the batting target allowed Tyler Heath and Oscar Jackson to take Coleshill into an early win with high quality home runs.
Game 2 - Grace Academy
This time we had to bat first but a strong team batting performance left Grace with too many runs to chase. Early catches from Tom Fenton and Harvey Woodman-Booth meant they were struggling to achieve their target.
Game 3 - Park Hall Academy
Again, Coleshill’s strong fielding in this game set a very achievable target. Oscar Jackson on bowling duty did an excellent job of striking out three of the opponents. The only player to get round for the opposition was their stand in short stop, Lewis Grant Smith.
Game 4 - CTC Kingshurst Academy
This game was the toughest by a long way. Excellent pitching from the CTC bowler meant our team suffered a meteoric batting collapse after failing to strike the ball into legal territory. Unfortunately, this time our excellent fielding could not stop us losing by 1 run
Game 5 - Smiths Wood Sports College
This was a relatively close run game which swung due to two excellent plays from Coleshill. Firstly when fielding, Tom Allsop caught their batter behind just as their team were beginning to build a strong innings. Then Tyler Heath stormed round with a home run to bring home the win.
They will now progress to the Level 3 Tournament in the coming months. Good luck Team and well done!
Come and join us at our Open Morning on Saturday 8th July 2017 from 10.00am to 1.00 pm
