Sporting Prowess – Friday 17 November 2017


The Junior Cross Country team competed in the South East Finals at the English School’s team competition. The team performed extremely well, finishing 4th overall, just missing out by 14 points on a place in the National finals; individual performances included First Formers Evie and Christina who finished 6th and 9th respectively.

The U12 and Open Team swimmers took to the pool against St George’s, Licensed Victuallers, St Mary’s and Holyport. The U12’s were placed 3rd overall and the Open Team were placed 2nd. Well done swimmers!

Hockey fixtures have been extremely successful this week. The U15XI team took to the field against Christ Hospital where the team work was fantastic and the end result was a 3-0 win. The U13 A & B hockey teams played against Sir William Perkins School and both teams came away with convincing wins.

Netball matches have been just as victorious. The U15 team played extremely well together and came away with another win against Sir William Perkins School. However, the highlight of the week has to go to the U12 A & B netball teams who played in the annual Tormead tournament. Facing some really tough competition both teams played exceptionally well and returned to school each with a shield as winners of their respective tournament. Fantastic result girls! Parent Rachel Gray took some excellent action shots of the match which can be viewed hereThe gymnasts really enjoyed a competition with Claremont.

Well done to all who took part in House Sport yesterday afternoon. The atmosphere was electric and it was great seeing everyone enjoying themselves. Junior years participated in hockey and football and the senior girls were involved with netball, badminton and table tennis. The results will be announced in the next assembly.
