Along with this their exceptional performance in the track and field regional competition on Monday 19th June earned them a spot in the national final at Chelmsford on Saturday 8th July. The boys scored an outstanding 514 points and will hope to improve on this when they compete again against the best in the country. This is an incredible achievement, the first time in the schools' history.

The Inter Girls (Years 9 & 10) have finished 4th making the league final.

The Junior boys have won the league by 3 points  making the league final.

At the Herts County Track & Field Championships, our largest cohort of students competed in what was another fantastic day for them. Out of the 38 athletes competing, we had 8 winners including Nathan (U17 100m), Jack (u17 Hammer) Callum (u17 Hurdles) Noah (u13 PV) Tom (u15 PV) Scarlett (u19 hurdles) James (u17 800m) Luca (u19 800m). Plus Oscar, Isaac & Abi with English Schools standards. We are excited to report that Nathan, Callum, Tom, Isaac, Will, Scarlett, James, Oscar and Abi will be competing at the National Track & Field Cup Championships on 30th June & 1st July.

The Year 9 Girls Rounders teams were victorious at the District Rounders Tournament @ Queens School with Iris as Player of the Tournament.

The Year 9 Girls Tennis teams have competed superbly this year and have put themselves in with a chance of making the County Tennis Finals @ Queenswood on 28th June.

We have also been lucky enough to have 3 students and 1 team nominated for an Award at the Three Rivers & Watford School Sports Partnership awards. Kaitlyn M & Yolande B were nominated for KS3-5 Sports Leaders of the Year, Abi Conway for KS3 -5 Exceptional Performer and the Girls Year 8/9 Football team, the Herts County Cup champions, were Runners up in the team of the year category. It was a fantastic evening celebrating the success of sport in the partnership, including an inspirational speech from double gold-medal winning Paralympian, Danielle Brown. 


The Year 8 Cricket team have won 2 and lost one of their District League matches, which gives them a chance of winning the District league.

The students have been amazing this season with the Year 10 Cricket team beating Parmiter’s school to win the District league. A great achievement that has included 16 different students as part of the squad - well done to all involved!

A final thank you to all our PE faculty with the effort that has gone in to giving these students the opportunity to compete at these events and to have done so well!
