Pupils have enjoyed an action-packed summer term, with numerous triumphs across a range of sports.
For our annual Sport for All week, all Senior School pupils took part in a wide range of activities, testing their skills and tactics in unfamiliar sports. During lessons and lunchtime clubs, pupils enjoyed energetic Zumba sessions and played korfball, strategic kabaddi, softball, spikeball… and even Quidditch!
Team highlights have included our U13 cricket team being crowned Middlesex Champions, out of over 80 schools, in the Chance to Shine county finals, and our U15 players coming second in the national GDST Cricket Cup. Our tennis squad also placed second in the GDST tennis rally, up against sister schools from across the UK, and our dancers also took silver at the GDST virtual dance competition.
Top individual performances have included Anya in Year 8 winning the Girls’ Net Division of the British Junior Golf Tour Open; Stella in Year 9 representing London at the British Gymnastics Artistic National Finals; Izzy in Year 8 being crowned U15 Middlesex 800m champion; and Ria in Year 9 being named as a Junior Finalist in the international Classical Indian Dance Bursary Competition.
Pupil success was recognised at our recent Sports Awards evening, when former England footballer Rachel Yankey OBE presented prizes to our most talented and promising athletes. Congratulations to every award winner, with a special mention to this year’s most improved team, our U16 football team; team of the year, our U15 netball squad; and sportswoman of the year, Alexandra in Year 9, who excels in netball but has had a phenomenal year representing the school in athletics, cross-country, football, cricket and tennis too!
