In PE, we’ve had a large number of successes in sporting fixtures over the last few weeks.
In rugby, we’ve had a full on few weeks with consecutive Saturday fixtures against Sandringham, Samuel Ryder and Sir John Lawes either side of half term. All games have been highly competitive and there have been some outstanding performances and commitment, most notably from our Year 7 and 8 teams in all those games. We have 2 remaining games – against Verulam (date yet to be confirmed) and Beaumont, although Year 7 have a tournament at Nicholas Breakspear School this Saturday. There will be no training for all other year groups this weekend.
We’ve also had a series of netball fixtures. Our Year 9A side had an excellent win against Malborough with Imogen D identified as the player of the match. Our Yr 7A and 8A squads have also had fixtures vs St Albans High School, with Scarlett and Sophie identified for impressive contributions.Year 11s suffered an unfortunate loss to Roundwood in the district cup, losing narrowly 18-21, but with Eva-Rose M being our stand out player.
We have also made positive strides in football. Our U13 girls and boys are both through to the next round of the country cup. Our U13 girls won 1-0 against Adeyfield, with Georgia R recognised for an excellent performance. Our Year 8 boys played some fantastic attacking play scoring 5 as they booked their place into the next round. Lots of excellent performances but Ed J, Ethan H (scored a hatrick) and Juan J-B were key players in us being such an attacking threat.
Finally, we also wanted to recognise Ethel M in Year 7 competing in the Eastern Regional Copper Gymnastics Championships against a tough field. She placed 3rd overall and was also crowned regional floor champion. Well done on an excellent achievement.
