U12 and U14 Netball Reports

Our U12 netball team had their first fixture last Wednesday against Taverham High School. Lots of positive skills on show and great team work ensured them a 5-2 victory – what a wonderful start!

The U14 team were also in action against a very tall Taverham side! Despite a valiant effort the final score was a 19-16 loss – which in netball terms is a small margin.

Well done, everyone!

Match report: U9 & U11 hockey v St Felix School

Last Friday saw us play a very strong St Felix School at hockey. Despite our best efforts, both the U9 and U11 teams lost. However, this was the first match for many of our pupils and an opportunity to experience the challenge of playing a new opposition and work on some of our basic hockey skills.
