Our Netball Champions Do It Again! 
This evening our Year 7 and 8 Netball team played Ousedale and demonstrated their exceptional talent. The first quarter saw us take the lead but Ousedale applied the pressure with a couple of early goals. This spurred the team to score a double in the second quarter as well as preventing Ousedale from scoring any further goals. The girls played like champions with strong passes and interceptions in the centre third, which allowed us to maximise attacking opportunities. Sophie and Sam's shooting was once again phenomenal - lots of far out shots from the edge of the circle - leaving Ousedale's jaws dropping in awe. 

The final score was a well deserved 17-3.

Well done to Sophie, Sam, Jaydie, Amaya, Elizabeth, Jaanvi, Vanessa, Jessica! Amazing teamwork, skills and strategy.

3 out 5 Stars for Geostorm - Review by Lucie B, Year 9

Film Review: Geostorm

3 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Lucie B Year 9 for the Student Magazine Geostorm surprised me and it was clear that it surprised the rest of the audience too (there was genuine applause at the end of the film that I found very funny). Before watching it I did some research and found some highly critical reviews, I ignored them and decided to watch it. The film is expertly directed by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Godzilla), despite the difficult themes and messages it had to portray to its viewers. I must say that although this movie flopped at the box office I appreciated the flow of the movie and the incredible performances from some of the actors like Gerald Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish and Alexandra Maria Lara. I do not want to give away any hints about the film that could be considered a spoiler alert but there are two very important messages that Geostorm delivers:  1) Do not mess with nature  2) Regardless of nationality, religion, colour etc., the planet …

Great Spirit from The Webber Year 5 and 6 Basketball Team

Review by Mr Andrew Small

Thursday 10th November 2017

Our Year 5 and 6 Basketball team took part in the MK Sports Partnership Basketball Tournament on Thursday 10th November. Our rising stars had trained hard and were eager to put their skills and teamwork into practise, it wasn't long before they put Two Mile Ash, Orchard Academy and St John's through their paces.
In the first match our players showed Two Mile Ash their might with an early score and good attacking skills. Two Mile Ash responded immediately after half-time securing their first point, everyone thought it would be a well-played draw but Webber showed their fighting spirit and provided an exciting end to the match, scoring in the last 15 seconds to secure a win of 6-4. 
Up next was a challenging match against Orchard Academy, who dominated both possession and shooting. Webber defended well and kept the competition from scoring in the first-half, the match ended 2-2 - a reflection of two teams that put tremendous effo…

Nail Biting Match for our Years 7, 8 and 9 Against MK Academy

Match Review by Mr Andrew Small

Wednesday 9th November 2017

On Wednesday 9th November our Football team played MK Academy in a hard-fought game.

The team had trained hard in their own time to prepare for the match, a tactic that helped Webber start the match strong and on the attack. The first half was tense, each team played well and were presented with opportunities to score. MK Academy steamed ahead and secured three goals in the last 15 minutes of the first half.
The second half of play was just as nail biting with Webber and MK Academy going head to head fighting it out to maintain control of the ball. Our boys showed grit and spirit, never giving in, unfortunately their hard work and team efforts didn't result in any points this time and MK Academy secured a 
win of 6-0.

Every member of the team played to their potential and did a great job at representing the School, which made it impossible to pick a player of the match. 

Well done all - you should be proud of your performance.

Webber Independent's Netball Dream Team Do It Again! 10-0 Win in Latest Match

Match Review by Mrs Katie Willis
Tuesday 7th November 2017
On Tuesday 7th November our U14s Netball team took on Sir Herbert Leon Academy in their first game of this half term. This away game certainly didn't disappoint as our girls secured an early lead, with some accurate passing from Jaydie and Alison straight into the circle. 
Sophie and Sam’s shooting was superb and allowed Webber to gain a five point lead by half time. Leon came back fighting but couldn't break through Webber's strong technical skills and game strategy. The second half saw some fantastic interceptions from Lily in centre third, and Lucie's defence kept Leon away from their shooters. The final score was 10-0 to Webber. 
A big well done to our team: Sam, Sophie, Jaydie, Alison, Amaya, Lily and Lucie.

Our BISI Badminton Players on Court at The National Badminton Centre

Review by Mrs K Willis, Thursday 12th October 2017

The MKSSP Badminton finals took place on Thursday 12th October at the National Badminton Centre. After breezing through the heats at the end of last month, we were heading for some tough competition against the other area winners. 

The competition involved playing 'around the world' and 'player of the court' against all of the schools. The Webber team did extremely well and there was some outstanding play from our own and from other students. 

It was a great experience for the students playing at the National Badminton Centre and the competition was thoroughly enjoyed by all. 

Well done to Ritvik, Aarav, Samarth, William, Reo, Emilien, Georgia, Daisy, Eva, Zara, Leyla and Anaya.

Perseverance in the Face of Tough Competition - Year 7 & 8 Football Team Work Together

Match Review by Roving Sports Reporter, William Rogers, Year 6

On Wednesday 27th September, the Year 7 and 8 boys (and me, Will Rogers, from Year 6) played an extremely tough game of football against Oakgrove School. None of us had played together as a team before but we showed great ability in attack against a team who showed awesome techniques and skills in all areas.

Anyway, back to us.

Mr Small was thrilled with how we played on the battlefield. Although we were defeated, we showed great skills in attack, defence and teamwork, especially in the second half when Haseeb saved some awesome shots that were on target.

Although eight goals were conceded, it could have been so much worse, so well done Hasseeb and our defenders.
The stand out player of the match in my opinion was Elliot Balchin-Love (Year 8) in attack, closely followed by Oliver Hayward (Year 7), also an attacker.

The final score was 8-0 to Oakgrove.

Well done Webber!

What have you done today to make YOU feel proud?
