Sports Focus

Cranmore U13 and U12 A & B headed over to Cranleigh to participate in a triangular versus Hurstpierpoint College/Cranleigh and Aldro/Cranleigh respectively. The U13s put in an excellent performance against Cranleigh, and immediately after against Hurstpierpoint, the team were able to test themselves against a very good side who has been playing rugby since September. The U12s showcased strong basic skills in very tough weather to deliver two very good performances against their opposition.

Thursday, saw our U9 and U8 teams travel to Cranleigh to play netball fixtures. This was off the back of having a masterclass the day before with International netball player, Tamsin Greenway. The two days combined meant there are some very happy netball players who clearly love their sport.

More adverse weather on Saturday saw a very busy morning on the Henderson Fields with no fewer than five year groups playing in eight rugby matches against worthy opponents, Northcote Lodge.  Despite the weather, parents and staff were full of praise regarding the standard of the rugby on show and the overall experience of Saturday morning sport at Cranmore.

Also on Saturday, our 5th and 6th rowers raced at the Burway Head of the River.  Despite being the youngest crew out of 256, Cranmore were placed well above the pre-race seedings.

On Tuesday, the whole 4th form year group that play rugby travelled to Kings House for fixtures A to D. This year group for Cranmore are proving very strong, and this was evident again with four very strong performances.   Wednesday, our U13s and 12s are playing rugby against Sevenoaks and throughout the week, the start of House rugby is taking place.

On Thursday, Cranmore are travelling to ACS, Cobham for a swimming gala. The Cranmore team is made up of existing and new swimming squad members, including for the first time three girls from Form One and one girl from Upper Prep. To wrap up the sporting week, there are U10s fixtures on Saturday at Cranmore, an U11 festival at Danes Hill and more rowing at Walton, where our crews are up against over 650 crews.
