In a remarkable debut season, our school proudly participated in the renowned Junior NBA league South-East League. With the highest participation in England for the second year running, our Year 7 and Year 8 teams made their mark. The U12 team, as the Philadelphia 76ers, secured a playoff spot by finishing second in their conference. Meanwhile, the Year 8 team, representing the Cleveland Cavaliers, clinched the advantage of playing on their home court until the finals. Our U13 team’s path to the championship was filled with excitement. They triumphed over Rainham Mark Grammar School in the east conference final, winning convincingly with a score of 23-9. The league final showcased their skill and determination, culminating in a breath-taking victory against St Andrew’s Catholic School with an impressive score of 37-29. Congratulations also goes to Dibbe Eerdmans who won the shooting contest. This success is a testament to our students’ talent, dedication, and teamwork.
Congratulations to the U13 girls who won the Reigate sixes plate competition.
A huge well done to our 1st XI who won the King’s Canterbury T20 tournament.
We took 15 students to Barbados at the start of the holiday. The players won 4 out of 6 fixtures, playing some brilliant cricket, culminating in a last wicket, last ball victory against Isolation Cavaliers under lights, showing maturity and composure beyond their years, not to mention great eye sight. This was played in the north of the island and was quite possibly the most beautiful ground anyone has played at. England Cricket train there when they are in Barbados. It was a real treat and the hosting was exceptional. We also played at Empire Cricket Club, the second most successful club in the world for producing test cricketers, including greats like Frank Worrell, Everton Weeks and Charlie Griffith who bowled a bouncer which went for six over the keepers head. The food was amazing, the beaches were incredible and the catamaran cruise was a fantastic experience. We are looking forward to getting back to the UK but this will hopefully be a trip of a lifetime for everyone involved, with many memories that everyone will cherish.
