Y11 Boys Football Team start with an emphatic win

Wednesday evening saw the Y11 boys football team come up against Fowey River Academy in the first round of the County Cup. The fixture was played at Veryan FC, the conditions were good which allowed some excellent football to be played. It took two minutes to break the deadlock when Alfie was put through from a goal kick, he beat the goalkeeper to the ball and then slotted it into the open net. This was followed with a goal by Matt on ten minutes and then Joe finished well to put The Roseland 3-0 up at half time. The second half continued in the same manner with Alfie netting his second of the game, Jacob grabbing a goal and Harry completing the result. The game ended with Roseland winning 6-0. The man of the match was awarded to Ben, who worked tirelessly and was highly efficient with linking up plays.

A huge thank you to Veryan FC for allowing us to play the fixture on their pitch.

Y11 Rugby County Cup


The year 11 Rugby team bowed out of the County Cup despite a spirited performance against Richard Lander. Playing with the near gale force wind in the first half The Roseland led 7-5 at half time. Two quick tries by Richard Lander after the break made it difficult for The Roseland to mount a come back in to the wind, eventually losing 28-7. The players are all looking forward to some friendly fixtures during the rest of this term.

Y8 Develop Leadership Skills in PE


A small group of students in Year 8 have been selected to develop their Sports Leadership this term, with the focus on developing their confidence when working with others. The group began by developing their understanding of the attributes of a sports leader by taking part in lessons led by Mr Avery. They soon grasped the concept and wanted to demonstrate their capability. The focus so far has been on leadership through rugby, with the experienced rugby players creating fun and engaging lessons for the less experienced students to participate in. This has led to an increase in participation at the girls rugby club on a Monday after school and the boys rugby club on a Tuesday after school, both open to all year groups. The PE department wish to thank the students so far for their efforts and hope it is continued throughout the year.

Y7 Girls Football Team Triumphant as they become East Cornwall Schools Champions


For the first time this year, The Roseland Academy entered the U12 County Football Tournament, which is a 9 aside knockout cup split into the Eastern & Western Schools. The first round, we were drawn against Poltair. The girls came out victorious winning 4-0 with some excellent displays of attacking football. With their confidence high, the next round saw them travelling to Bodmin where again the girls were victorious by beating them 3-0.


2With two games gone, seven goals scored and zero conceded the team were ecstatic as they were now in the eastern final. A long trip away to Callington was the reward. The girls turned up and suddenly became a little nervous, however with their positive team spirit they overcame the nerves and went on to beat Callington 2-1 with goals from Skye & Betty. Again, a fine team performance from all the girls which saw chances at both ends of the pitch.


3With this result, The Roseland Academy U12 Girls Football Team became East Cornwall Schools Champions and will now challenge Richard Lander as they were the West Cornwall Schools Champions. Unfortunately, the County Final was a year too soon as the girls came up against a very strong and experienced Richard Lander Team at Wadebridge Football Club in the County Final. The final result was Richard Lander 6, The Roseland Academy 1 with a goal from Josie. The girls are extremely proud of their accomplishment and are looking forward to next year’s competition already.

A Huge well done from everyone at The Roseland!
