A huge thank you to everyone involved in sport this year and in particular to the PE department who have worked tirelessly to create such a successful programme.
James Emmitt, Director of PE and Sport
During this academic year, our students have played 1090 fixtures with 55.8% wins. We have seen 80% representation across the whole school, 100% in the Lower School and 91% in the Middle School.
The inter girls came third in the regional round of the English Schools championships and qualified for the national finals, although unfortunately we cannot attend as the athletes will be in Iceland.
The following have been selected to represent Kent at the IAPS national finals:
Sandy Milligan: 200m & discus
Rory Welsh: 1500m
Donato Sinisi, Egzon Hallaqi, Max Perman & Sandy Millligan: 4 x 100m relay
Max Perman: hurdles & shot
Josh Haworth: high jump
Ella McCarthy: hurdles
Phoebe Strutt: javelin
Isabelle Fox: discus
Venetia Barker: discus
Kasope Egoh: shot
Maddie Wise: 1500m
Alex Evans: 1500m
The U15 side are through to the semi-final of the Kent Plate after a last ball win versus King’s Canterbury. Michael Jacob hit 15 off the last over.
Sophie Rayment was placed fifth for Under 13 girls sabre at the England Youth Fencing Championships in Hertfordshire.
Our team of Tom Harrison, Max Delchar and Ed Chambers finished third out of 11 at the ISGA Matchplay Plate National Final at Magnolia Park near Oxford.
The Lower School multisports group completed a 5k run on Friday without stopping. This is an incredible achievement for a group of boys who previously were disillusioned by sport.
Congratulations to all teams on 100 per cent wins for rounders.
At the Kent County Championships Ellie Vowell took four golds and one silver and Louis Hayes four golds.
