Our girls sports teams are on a great run at the moment. On Thursday, the U8s netball team entered the Cranleigh tournament managing to win all four matches and being presented with the accolade ‘Team of the Tournament’. Monday saw the U8s and U9s hockey teams play against St George’s which turned out to be a great afternoon of hockey despite the damp conditions. There were some excellent skills on show which resulted in two wins and a draw for Cranmore.

The U13s entered the Worth tournament last Wednesday and the afternoon started with a thumping victory in which the squad looked very promising. While they played well to remain unbeaten in their group, injuries and fatigue began to set in which left the squad depleted for the knock out stages. A semi-final exit cut the afternoon short but lots of lessons learnt for the rest of the season. The U11s in the same tournament had a fantastic outing of rugby for the squad. There was plenty of enthusiasm and team spirit which allowed the team to progress to the final. Well done to both squads.
Many other rugby fixtures have taken place across the different age groups against Cranleigh, Danes Hill, Feltonfleet and Trinity school.

On Tuesday, the U11s & U13s squash teams travelled to Lancing to compete in their annual tournament. Both teams played some superb squash to reach the main competition. Unfortunately, the U13s lost in the semi final but the U11 won theirs to reach the final just falling short at the last hurdle. Well done to all those who took part.

Finally, we are very honoured again to be included in the top 50 prep schools by the highly regarded and prestigious ‘The Cricketer’ magazine. Well done to all players, parents and staff.
