Sporting Highlights

December 2019


Sevenoaks School has been featured in The Cricketer's Top 100 Schools Guide. Thanks to all staff and students who give so much to the cricket programme.

Cross country

Our junior girls' team (Eva Mathew, Amber Croll, Eliza Muysken, Alexia Scotiniadis, Serena Manca and Summer Knight-Thompson) finished third at the national finals of the English Schools’ cross country cup.

Our boys had a great time at Hampton School’s Christmas paarlauf. This is the first time we’ve attended this intriguing event where the aim is to run as far as possible in 24 minutes. Congratulations to our senior boys who finished third, and the inter boys who finished first. Well done to the junior boys who also competed but results have yet to be confirmed.


Sevenoaks fencers took part in the first match against Tonbridge. Eight fencers did really well across all three weapons with a clear victory for us in foil (45-11) and sabre (45-40) and a narrow loss in the epée (45-40) so an overall victory for us.

Three of our pupils were selected to join the South East team for a national team competition in December.

Congratulations to Seb Silva who won a fifth place medal at the LPJS Millfield U15 Sabre competition and bronze at the LPJS Hatfield U15 event.


Our U13As have reached the final of the Kent cup for small schools (less than 50 boys in a year group).


It was a great day of hockey at the East Regional finals for the 2nd XI, U16 and U14 sides. A special mention to the U16s who finished top of their group, qualifying for the Tier 3 National Finals in March.

Well done to our 1st XI hockey team who finished runners-up in the Mel Clewlow Cup.

Well done to our U16 indoor hockey team who placed fifth in the indoor hockey regional finals.


Our U19s and U14s competed at the county finals, finishing third and fourth respectively.


Well done to all ten pupils who competed at the NSEA (National Schools Equestrian Association) show jumping. The 80cm team won the team competition, the red 90cm team finished second, qualifying for Royal Windsor, the white 90cm team finished fourth, and the 1m team finished second. Abi Scott and Anabelle Crickmore also performed well individually, ranking first and fourth overall.


Congratulations to George Cox who was one of the touch judges at the U15 Kent Cup final. 

Well done to our teams on winning a fantastic six out of eight games versus Christ's Hospital.
