The impressive start of the rugby season has continued in the last week with many fantastic performances across the school. This has resulted in 16 wins from 19 matches in the last seven days against schools including Kings House, Hoe Bridge, Cranleigh and Northcote Lodge. Saturday morning was particularly impressive with both the U11s and U9s remaining undefeated across the year groups. The feast of rugby was enjoyed by over 120 parents and family members. It is worth noting that we have looked into the parking provision going forward, especially with the Saturday sport mornings being so popular.

Our U9s netball teams played superbly well last week over at Claremont Fan Court. Both sides moved the ball very effectively which created many goal scoring opportunities whilst at the same time applying plenty of pressure on the opposition to regain possession. Ms Moore was very impressed and felt on the afternoon everything had just ‘clicked’ into place. Well done, girls.

On Thursday, the Year 8 went to the Royal Albert Hall to watch the Masters Tennis. They were treated to a festival of Tennis with some amazing skills and shots on display. The players on show were David Ferrer, Marcos Baghdatis, Tim Henman, Mark Philippoussis, Tommy Haas and Greg Rusedski. To finish off the session was an exhibiton match between Mansour Bahrami & Goran Ivanisevic versus Thomas Enqvist & Xavier Malisse. Some of the group were fortunate to meet Judy Murray. A great time was had by all.
