The fast pace in the PE department has certainly continued over the past 10 days with all age groups taking part in a number of fixtures recently.

The seniors had their Hockey County Tournament this week and played exceptionally well. Against some tough competition, we came away with one draw (CLFS) and two losses (Reigate Grammar and St George’s, Weybridge). The 1st XI also convincingly won their hockey match against Woldingham whilst narrowly losing their netball matches (1st & 2nd VII) against George Abbot.

The U15’s have enjoyed netball matches against Manor House. The A team had a marginal loss while the B team brought home a win. On the hockey pitch, they dominated play from start to finish and had a resounding win against Christ Hospital.

The U14’s took part in a netball competition we have entered called SISTERS n SPORT National Cup. They travelled to Walthamstow Hall and had a fantastic game. They are now through to the second round. The hockey team travelled to Farlington to play in their first 11 a side hockey match. The match ended in a draw and was great preparation for their County Tournament which took place yesterday. During the tournament the team showed tremendous improvement and progress throughout the day and came away with one win (St Theresa’s) and two losses (St John’s and St George’s).

The U13 A&B’s have had two hockey matches, one against Copthorne Preparatory School and the other Sutton High. In both matches our teamwork was clinical and proved too strong for the opposition. The U13 C&D netball teams travelled to St Edmund’s and had a great time on the court. Both teams enjoyed success from this fixture.

The U12’s, like the others, have also been busy both on the hockey pitch and netball court. On the netball court the A&B teams beat The Royal but unfortunately lost their matches against Tormead. The C&D team have played against Tormead while the E&F team took on St Catherine’s. All teams put up a good fight but suffered narrow defeats when the final whistle was blown. The U12A netball team have also played their Sister in Sport match against Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls. Leading for the first half of the match the team looked set for victory, however, the pressure set in and unfortunately we lost by 1 goal.

The U12 A&B hockey teams took part in our annual PF Tournament last week Saturday. Playing in only their second match of the season, they went from strength to strength during the event. The A team finished third overall whilst the B team were runners up.

Off the court and pitch, our junior runners took part in the Junior Schools Cross Country Cup competition. Six runners competed with the top four scoring for the team. Our girls had a fantastic run and have been awarded first place overall. Congratulations to the following Second Former’s: Christina who came first, Evie who came second, Molly placed 9th and Eleanor 15th. First Former’s Katie and Jessenia came 18th and 19th respectively. An exceptional achievement to have the entire team within the top 20 (out of 50) runners.

On the Tennis court we reached the quarter finals of the 14&U Sutton SV Winter Regional Tour with our Academy students Sophie and Jessica playing extremely well in the high standard Grade 3 tournament at Sutton Academy.



Sport FebNetball has been the busier sport this week with every age group involved in a match.

The U12 team played against The Royal and won 10-6 with India and Sophie being awarded players of the match.

The U13’s have played both Manor House and Guildford High. The A team won comfortably against Manor House (26-12) and had a close loss with GHS (18-23). Players of the match went to Annabelle  and Sky, respectively. The B team were victorious in both of their matches. Tabby was player of the match against Manor House while Anya was given player of the match for the GHS match. The C team won 9-2 against Manor House with Maddy and Jess sharing player of the match.

The U14’s had a tough encounter against Rodborough. Daisy received player of the match and the final score was 15-22 loss.

The U15 A&B teams had matches against The Royal. A team won 24-17 while the B team had a narrow loss 7-12. Players of the match were Zelah and Jess respectively.

The seniors had 3 teams play against Woldingham. 1st VII won 25-7, player of the match Erin Saunders. 2nd VII lost 9-18, player of the match was shared between Immi and Emily. U16B VII fought hard and narrowly lost 12-16 with Elliot awarded player of the match.

There have been 3 hockey matches, one for U13B and two for the U12’s. U13B’s match was very exciting against Amesbury with PF winning 4-3 while the U12’s won convincingly. The U12’s second match was against Ripley Court which was a game of two halves. The first half was tough and possession was dominated by our opposition, however, in the second half the team worked hard and won their half.

Cross Country runners took part in a fairly tough course with a couple of cheeky hills at Surbiton. Evie and Christina finished 3rd and 4th and well done to the other runners in Year 8 and 9.

On Monday, our U12, U13 and U15 teams attended the GHS relays and had great fun in this relaxed event around Stoke Park.  The teams finished 6th. 7th and 6th respectively.

In the world of netball:

The U16A & U15A played against Royal Russell last week Saturday. Despite some very testing weather and everyone ending up drenched, the standard of play remained high. U15’s won comfortably against their U16B team while our U16A’s fought right to the end and came away with a narrow loss. Players of the match were Fourth Formers Elliot (U15) and Fifth Former Brydie (U16). On Wednesday the U14 C&D teams took to the court against Christ Hospital. Matches were evenly contested with a win for the C team and a loss for the D team. Well done to Third Formers Poppy (U14C) and Jasmine (U14D) who were players of the match.

On the hockey front, most age groups have been involved with matches this week.

U12 A & C teams travelled to Farnborough Hill, U13’s played at home against Howard of Effingham and Guildford High, U14’s faced Sir William Perkins while the U15’s took part in the 4th round of their Independent Schools Cup.

U12A drew while the U12C team lost, well done to First Formers Annabelle and Maisy who were awarded player of the match for their respective teams. U13A won convincingly won against Howard of Effingham and U13B had a great game against Guildford High narrowly losing 1-2. Players of the match were Second Formers Kira (A) and Frances (B). U14’s won 2-0 with Third Former Izzy as their player of the match. The U15’s had their very important Cup match against Surbiton High. After being put under a lot of pressure we bounced back and made Surbiton work hard for their win. Well done girls for a great effort and to Fourth Former Emma for receiving player of the match.

The swimmers have also enjoyed taking part in a gala against Notre Dame.



We have had another fantastic week in the Sports Department.

The U15 hockey squad have been particularly busy with both their County Tournament and the 3rd round of the Independent Schools Cup taking place this week.

County Tournament: starting with 4 matches in the group stage, the team played really well together in each game and finished with 3 wins and 1 draw. Beating Tormead in the quarter-finals we then convincingly won our semi-final against City of London Freeman School. The final match was between PF and Reigate Grammar, who we had drawn to in the group match. Knowing it would be a tough competition the team started strong and took the lead. Scores were level at half time, however, after a very tense second half RGS won the match 2-1. The whole team performed exceptionally well on the day and have been placed runners up out of 20 schools. Well done everyone!

On Thursday the team travelled to Brentwood in Essex for their Cup match. Playing on an exceptionally cold day the team tried to keep warm and completely dominated the entire game, returning home with a phenomenal 5-0 win. We are looking forward to the next round.

On Wednesday our Cross Country runners took part in an event at St Edmunds. The U12’s won their age group with Christina finishing 1st, Molly 7th, Lucy 12th, Emilie 17th. In the U13’s: Annabelle finished 6th, Lara 9th and Lauren 18th. The following girls have been selected to represent Waverley at the Surrey Schools Cross Country on Sat 20th January in Reigate.  U13:  Evie finished 1st, Christina finished 2nd, Molly finished 7th. Junior girls: Eliza finished 3rd. Inter girls:   Imogen finished 2nd, Georgia 5th, Evelyn 6th, Emily 8th

Also on Wednesday, six U12 netball teams took part in matches against Tormead. Despite the freezing cold evening, each team played so well and the final result was a draw with 3 wins and 3 losses.

The U14 A&B netball teams fought hard against Claremont Fan Court and ended the week on a high with wins for both teams. Well done girls!

Congratulations to…

First Former Evie, who last weekend raced in Warwickshire, in the Midlands Inter-Counties Cross Country fixture. She was the first girl in for Surrey and 3rd overall; a fantastic result.

First Former Georgia, who has been offered a place with Chelsea FC Girls Development Centre – the club of Georgia’s choice and a wonderful opportunity; well done.

Third Former Matilda, who has been awarded the Chief Scout’s Gold Award, the highest achievement award in Scouts.  She has also been selected from hundreds of applicants to represent Surrey Scouts at the 24th World Scout Jamboree in 2019 in Virginia, USA and is fundraising for the £3,500 entry fee that partly pays for other Scouts from less wealthy countries also to attend.


Wednesday saw over 150 girls from local junior and prep schools converge on Prior’s Field for our annual Junior Schools’ Cross Country Competition. Despite rainy conditions, girls pounded the course – 1,500m for Years 5 and 6 and 3,000m for Years 7 and 8 – with determination and purpose. Thanks to the PE Department for masterminding the event and ensuring our visitors’ safety and enjoyment.
