Fencing

Great performance at the Kent Championships yesterday:

  • U18 Foil – bronze
  • U18 Sabre - bronze
  • Master at Arms trophy for best overall performance

Woser Prossor

Amelie Geens

Special mention to Marjolaine Mauduit (Y8) who came first in the U16 girls foil but unfortunately could not be awarded the trophy as she was too young!

Overall it was a great event and all our fencers displayed great sportsmanship and camaraderie.

Football

Our U13 side have won the quarter finals of the Kent Cup Small Schools Competition (those with under 50 boys in a year group). They beat Bennett Memorial on penalties, showing great resilience under pressure.

Hockey

There was a lot of hard work and determination from our U18 indoor hockey side to finish runners up in the Kent tournament. Due to illness, they only had six players but still managed some incredible hockey.

The U14 girls finished fourth at the Tier 1 area tournament (regionals). It was great experience for the team, losing out in the tiniest moments but a good learning curve for the future.

Netball

Our U18 and U15 netball sides fought bravely in the third round of the Nationals Schools Cup competition but up second best on this occasion.

Participation

Every boy in the Lower School played in a football match versus Lingfield with Teams A-F.

Partnerships

We hosted a very successful futsal tournament on Friday for eight enthusiastic teams from seven local primary schools. Congrats to Crockham Hill who were the winning team.

Rugby

The U15 side put up a brave fight against Tonbridge in the semi final of the Kent Cup, narrowly losing a brilliantly competitive match 29-17. Superb character shown by the side to reach this stage of the competition.
