Exeter Cathedral - 160 - 5

Bramdean - 138 - 4

After batting first on a good pitch at Exeter CC, Cathedral posted an impressive 160-5 off their allotted 18 overs.

With the short boundaries making it difficult to prevent boundaries, the runs flowed freely.  

Danny Carroll picked up two wickets, Tom Gulley bowled consistently and Frankie Follett kept wicket.

After 5 overs of the run chase Bramdean were well placed at 40-0 with the Gulley brothers (Tom & Lucas) building a strong platform.  Tom hitting the ball straight and hard and Lucas playing a good supporting role.  However, once the partnership was broken, the run rate dropped and when Tom was bowled for an impressive 34, our hopes faded.  Frankie Follett (15) and Harry Gulley (14) chipped in with valuable runs but Bramdean finished 22 runs short.

Bramdean won the toss and elected to bat in this 16 overs a side match.  Frankie Follett opened the batting and was the pick of the batters scoring 27 before being retired.  Lucas Gulley weighed in with a quick fire 14 and Danny Carroll kept the score ticking along with two leg side boundaries.

Bramdean's total of 115 proved to be very challenging and the St John's batters fell 45 short whilst amassing.  Lucas Gulley bowled with good pace and control to pick up three wickets, including the crucial scalp of Hodgson who looked promising at the crease.  Alongside his impressive batting, Carroll bowled economically and picked up a wicket with the last ball of his spell as Bramdean rounded of an impressive fielding and bowling performance.

Tuesday 15th May

U15 Mixed Rounders v Trinity School

An impressive performance from Bramdean's mixed team resulting in a comprehensive victory.

Tom Gulley struck the ball beautifully, scoring five whole rounders.  Reece Cummings, Lukas Soeller, Joseph Wreford and Bradley Hunt made up the rest of the boys and were all very effective.

Lily May, Rhea Knight, Lara White and Iarina Nitulescu all played their part with May and Nitulescu in particular striking the ball consistently well.

Good fielding display ensured that Bramdean kept the trinity score to a minimum.


Tuesday 8th May

U15 Rounders v St Lukes

Result - Bramdean 16 St Luke's 7

Rhea Knight's throwing from back stop to 2nd post was very accurate and limited the St Lukes  run scoring.

Bramdean Whole School Games Report – Spring Term 2018


This term has seen 60 competitive fixtures completed in football and netball throughout the various age groups. Firstly, the U11/U12 netball team enjoyed a highly successful season with 11 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses from their 15 matches played. In particular, they recorded notable victories over Blundell’s, Exeter Cathedral, Mount Kelly, Plymouth College, Trinity, Stover and St Peter’s Lympstone. However, the most memorable game of the term came at home to Maynard’s in which the girls’ produced a dominant and flowing performance to secure a 22 - 6 win. The U14/U15 team experienced a mixed term with 5 wins and 4 defeats from their 9 matches played. Highlights of the season includea resilient and hard-fought victory away at Plymouth College and the impressive 31 - 16 home win against Trinity. Overall, all the girls’ have worked exceptionally hard for one another this term and always played the game in the right spirit. They have played some high quality netball and displayed a positive attitude of wanting to improve and togetherness. I hope the girls’ continue to demonstrate the same qualities as we move into the summer term and rounders fixtures.

            The boys’ attention has been firmly fixed on football this term with 34 matches completed. The pick of the teams, in my opinion, were the U8/U9’s who acquitted themselves very well indeed to claim entertaining wins over St John’s, Truro, Stover, St Peter’s Lympstone and Exeter School. In particular, it has been a pleasure to watch our youngest team play the game with passion and a smile on their face. They have all gained valuable experience and improved their skills considerably. I am really proud of them, and everything they have accomplished, they have been a real credit to themselves and to Bramdean School. The older age groups worked hard throughout the term and gave a good account of themselves in the majority of their fixtures. Despite being on the wrong end of a number of close scorelines, victories were claimed over St Leonard’s, Stover, Shebbear College and Exeter School. All season the boys’ displayed great energy, enthusiasm and commitment and this needs to remain in place if we are to enjoy success out on the cricket field next term.

There is a very full fixture list in place for next term with 57 cricket and rounders matches planned, two athletics meetings and one swimming gala. From the Games Department, we wish you all a Happy Easter and hope that you enjoy the holidays and a well-earned break.


U8/U9 Cross Country Event


The U8/U9’s competed in a challenging cross country event at Blundell’s in late January. All of our pupils’ finished the course with Max Cross securing 11thplace out of 33 runners in the U9 race. However, the outstanding performance of the day came from Jaxon Knight, who won the U8 race out of 32 runners. William Matten and Marco Garcia-Rajakovich finished a respectable 10thand 11thplace and are only 6 years of age.

The Year 10 squad were in a very strong group of 8 teams, playing 7 matches. They won 3 and lost 4, also finishing in 5th place. The girls’ had a fabulous experience playing lots of high standard and competitive netball. They also enjoyed the activities off-court throughout the weekend which included abseiling, climbing wall, high ropes, low ropes, trapeze, laser maze, grip of stones, gladiator wall race, tunnelling, disco and silent disco.

 Games Report – Autumn Term 2017


This term has seen 82 competitive fixtures completed in rugby and hockey throughout the various age groups. The results are as follows:


Rugby =   Played 55   Won 28   Drawn 4 Lost 23

Hockey =   Played 27   Won 11   Drawn 2 Lost 14

Overall =   Played 82   Won 39   Drawn 6 Lost 37


 U14 Rugby:

 Firstly, we’d like to say a massive thank you to all the boys who played this season for their attitude, behaviour and commitment no matter what the result. This is a spirited group of players; they work hard for one another and as the term progressed their confidence grew and they developed an ability to read the game and established a greater understanding of the technical aspects.


Cassius Bowman and Douglas Whiteman in particular stepped up and improved immeasurably having not played any competitive rugby last season. Reece Cummings, who took on the captaincy after Thomas Gulley’s unfortunate injury, marshalled the forwards and backs and impressed with his work rate, defence and ball carrying abilities. Finally, Jacob Lee, Bradley Hunt, Joseph Wreford and Lukas Soeller were committed members of the team who worked well throughout the season.


With many players suffering from injuries and niggles throughout the season we worked well together to produce a few impressive performances, even when perhaps the score line didn’t reflect it. They still have much to work on and develop for next year, but we are confident that their fortunes will turn and the boys will flourish.


U15 Hockey:

 This has certainly been a season of two halves. A slow start saw us lose our first four games and moral was definitely taking a hit. Following the half term break and a tweak to the team formation, the girls produced a number of impressive performances; an absorbing close win against Queen’s College and attritional draw’s against Exeter School and Plymouth College.


All in all we believe that the girls worked hard throughout the term and gave a good account of themselves in the majority of their fixtures. However, we hope that next year they will have greater desire to practice and improve their skill level. The girls are now more difficult to play against, but it will take a combined effort both in lessons and after school if they are to build upon the solid platform that has been established.


Final Reflections


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our parents, relatives and friends who do support us in everything we do and in a manner of ways, every little helps and it all adds up to make a huge difference to us and the pupils. Without your help and support we simply would not be able to run the number of teams and activities that we do.


We have enjoyed a successful term and been very competitive in the majority of our sporting fixtures, but to gain further success and sustain it, we must foster a culture of hard work. Hard work that begins in all lessons and training sessions after school, with members of each squad consistently attending and putting in 100% effort at all times.


We would wish this culture of hard work to be instilled not only on the sports field, but also off it, and to complement and drive academic success also. The above should not come at the expense of academic endeavour, but instead should work alongside it. Our pupils are smart, ambitious and hardworking, when their minds are put to it. Neither academia nor sport should be a scape goat for the other, but more of a catalyst for each other, driving the other on.


We know academic results are important for the future of the pupils, but sport and extra-curricular activities are a huge part of what makes our pupils so special. It is what makes them well-rounded young people that leave us ready for the world. Following the highs and agonising lows of a Bramdean School sporting term, we thought Tom Fordyce’s conclusion was apt: “Who wants to go through life insulated from emotion? Sport – the winning, the losing, the hoping, the hating, the tension and the despair and the very occasional ecstatic moment – opens us up to feeling alive”.
