On Satrurday a team of 8 girls were entered in the Cobham Hall Netball Tournament. They played a total of
6 games and won 4. Their skills have improved tremendously this term and are all more confident and play
together much better as a team. The midfield players were excellent and our shooters were spot on.
An excellent end to the season girls!



Our girls have been very busy with Netball matches. They played a home game against St Michael’s last
week. The A team won 14-4 with Man of the Match going to Jia. A special mention goes to Jasmine for her
snatching and intercepting skills. The B team also won with a score of 9-3. Man of the Match went to Eva
for always staying with her player. Special mention goes to Jiya and Eliza for always managing to get away
from their players.


Last week we entered a team of runners in the ISA Cross Country Championships. There were 20 schools
entered with competitors raging from age 9 to 11. Sonny from Class IV ran extremely well and came in 4th
– this has given him a place in the final. Maisie from Class VI had a tough race but did amazingly well and
finished 10th. The U11 boy’s heats were held last. James came in 2nd, which also gives him a place in the
final, with Milo, Vishnu and Jack following closely behind. An excellent effort by all – Well done!


The rugby team played away at Solefield School this week. The A Team won 7-3 with Man of the Match
going to Harry. The whole team were praised for their descending skills. The B Team sadly lost 3-2 with Man
of the Match going to Dylan and a special mention to Atanas. They have noticed that they need to work on
their lines and handling the ball. There were nose bleeds, dead knees, rain and high winds but all the
boys still had a fantastic time. Well played boys!


The girls had 2 away netball matches against Sevenoaks Prep. The A Team played well with Lia being named as ‘Man of the Match’. The final score was 11-3 to Sevenoaks. The B Team also played well and have improved their marking and interception skills. Their final score was 6-1 to Sevenoaks. Man of the Match went to Zoe with a special mention to Meera and Samhita. Well done girls!

consistently well and dominated most of their games. They came 4th out of 8 schools. Well done boys!




Our netball teams played 2 matches away at Russell House School last week. They won one game 13-8 and
lost the other 14-4 with all the girls playing well together in their teams.


We also sent a team of 11 girls to the ISA Netball Tournament at Lingfield. Despite some strong competition, they played very well and improved throughout the day. They worked well as a team, encouraging and supporting each other. The opposing teams did not provide any names for ‘Player of the Match’ but our girls thought that Ciara played exceptionally well as she made some brilliant interceptions. Well done girls!
