Sporting Highlights

March 2020

Cricket

Our U15 girls’ cricket side are county champions of the indoor Lady Taverners competition. They now qualify for the regional finals.

Cross Country

At the Teddies Oxford relays there were some strong performances from Sevenoaks runners with the junior girls finishing second, junior boys finishing fourth, inter girls finishing second and inter boys finishing third. Well done to all our runners!

Eventing

Abi Scott had a very successful day at the Arena Eventing Championships finishing fourth and fifth in two very competitive classes.

Fencing

Amelie Tsang represented Great Britain at the European Championships Cadet (U17 foil) in Porec, Croatia. She finished 37th out of 94 fencers having lost her fight 14-15 against the Polish number one.

Also, Woser Prossor came second at the South East Regional qualifiers in the U16 foil for the nationals, narrowly missing out on the gold by one point. The nationals are in Sheffield in May.

Alexia Scotiniadis came third at the South East Regional Championships in the U14 foil and qualifies for the nationals in May.

We had a great weekend of fencing at the British Schools’ competition and in spite of the tough competition our three teams came back with three medals. A great achievement taking into account many of them were fencing in higher age group. (Amelie in Y9 fencing U18!)

Hockey

Well done to our U16 hockey girls who finished third in their group at the Tier 3 National finals. They were a credit to the school and worked hard all day.

Boys’ hockey lower down the school is new this year and is now in full swing with a series of fixtures at U13 and U15. We are hoping to grow it into a successful sport moving forwards.

Netball

Well done to our 2nd VII who came third and our 1st VII who came away as winners at the Birley’s tournament.

Well done to our U14s who came second in the Birley’s netball tournament.

Outreach

We recently held a fantastic hockey masterclass event for local primary schools and their teachers. Thanks to all of our pupils and staff who helped make this a successful event.

Congratulations to our U18 Kent shield winners at the Kent 7s tournament.

Sailing

Over the Exeat weekend, our Y10 sailors enjoyed training in Whitstable. This is the first time many of them have sailed on the sea.

It was a fantastic afternoon for our Lower School pupils running a fancy dress mile in aid of Sport Relief, to date the pupils have raised £255.
