Our Director of Sport, Paul Hodgson, writes:

We hosted our first swimming gala of the term last Wednesday against Boxgrove school. 33 members of our swim squad competed in the event, which had a superb atmosphere due to the many parents and supporters in attendance. Thank you to the several swim squad members who were not competing, but did a superb job in helping to run the event. Finally, a big thank you to Sarah Calpin who organised and lead the gala’s logistics, which was her first one on her return to Cranmore.

Football took place across all years against schools including: Downsend, Danes Hill, Rokeby, Feltonfleet and Kings House (please see results on the Sports Portal, via the Cranmore website). On Friday, two U8 sides competed at the KCJS tournament and both teams performed very well and represented Cranmore honourably. On Saturday, Cranmore hosted a superb morning of football with eight U10 matches being played. Over 110 parents and family members were in attendance to watch the spectacle and to enjoy the fantastic refreshments that were served up by our Cranmore catering staff.

Also last week, members of our cross country squad ran at the ESSA event in Guildford. Our squash club celebrated ‘World Squash Day’, our U9 netball sides played against Cranleigh, the golf squad competed at Cranleigh, plus our U8 hockey sides gained some valuable experience in matches against Downsend.

Finally, there was an enjoyable and very worthwhile training session with St Teresa’s for our U8 netball players. It was great for the children to have a joint lesson in their games period, practising different skills, mixing up teams and gaining different coaching experiences. This joint lesson will take place every few weeks alternating at both school sites.
