The Senior School have enjoyed great successes in Netball during the Spring Term.
All pupils must participate in clan netball and the organise this to take place during a PE Lesson. They are responsible for arranging their A & B teams, which can get quite strategic when planning who plays in which team! This year the Junior (Years 7-9) winners were Cameron and the Senior (Years 10-11) winners were MacDonald.
With such great attendance at lunchtime netball clubs, the PE Department decided to begin to enter C teams into the Year 8 and 9 leagues, as well as A & B teams in Year 10 and entering an A team for Years 7 and 11. The PE staff were extremely impressed with the commitment that the girls have made to their clubs and fixtures this season.
Congratulations to everyone who took part and tried their hardest throughout their games.
Year 7 came 4th in the league and 4th in the District Tournament.
The Year 8 C team came 5th and B’s reached 2nd in Division 2, narrowly missing out on promotion. Silver medals were awarded to Abi, Hattie, Madeleine B, Leah, Lily, Freya, Emeline, Zoe, Lily and Charlotte.

We are already looking at the fixtures for next season and hope to continue to see a large number of girls participating in netball. Our goal is to have at least 2 teams playing in the local league per year group!
We are looking forward to celebrating more successes at the Sports Awards Evening in June.
