Chance to Shine Cricket Tournament

On Tuesday 14th of March, the new U15 cricket team headed off to Blackbird Leys to face schools in the Oxfordshire’s Chance to Shine cricket tournament. The girls were energetic and supported one another all day. We faced Burford school first, walking away with a win. Next up was our rivals St Helens and St Catherine’s who we lost to in a tight match. Finally, we faced Oxford High school where we lost again. The whole team played their best, and a special well done goes to Hermione Jewell and Millie Dickinson who played exceptionally well for their first cricket match.

Well played girls,

Farah Khan

Regional Badminton Competition

On Thursday 9th March our Year 10 and 11 County Badminton winners went to Guildford to compete in the regional round of the competition. There were 8 schools competing and play began in two rounds of pools. Our girls won all of their group matches, beating Folkestone Girls 5-0; Sir William Perkins 3-2; and Warden Park 4-1. This meant that they progressed into the semi-finals facing Aylesbury Vale. Despite a fabulous team effort, the girls narrowly lost 3-2. This led to a play-off for 3rd place, where our girls took on Sir William Perkins for the second time, this time winning 4-1. This resulted in an excellent 3rd place for the team.
The PE department would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Marriott for taking the girls to Guildford and team managing throughout the day. The girls all performed really well, behaved in a sporting manner at all times and were very supportive of each other - well done!
