Important U13 hockey update

Please note that Riddlesworth Hall have reluctantly had to postpone our U13 hockey fixture there today as their pitch is unplayable. The pupils will have hockey as normal during lesson time but it may affect pick-up times for parents. Pupils will be able to call their parents to check arrangement but of course are welcome to stay and day board until they can be collected. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Sophie in Regional U14 Hockey Tournament

Last Sunday, Sophie B (Year 9, pictured in red kit in the action shot below) represented Norfolk at the East Region U14 Girls Junior Academy Hockey Tournament held at Rushmere, Ipswich; her second year representing Norfolk.

The team, made up of club members from around the county, have been training together since the end of last year. They won four of their five matches against Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire but a loss against Suffolk meant that Norfolk finished as runners-up. Sophie and her team mates played some exceptional hockey throughout the tournament and proudly received their runner-up medals at the end of the day. Sophie trains and plays for Norwich Dragons Hockey Club.
