Building each other up

Sports News



A win in last week's quarter final match against Hampton Hill Junior School would have put us through to the finals of the rugby cup. Our second half play was amazing and one of our best performances of the season but, unfortunately, the first half performance was not quite up to our usual standard. Despite rallying in the second half, and giving it our all, right up until the final whistle, we bowed out at the quarter final stage, following a tight 7-6 loss. It has been a wonderful season of rugby and I am very proud of this group of players. Well done to all those that took part Sybil, Isla, Hettie, Seb, Sam, Eli, Thomas, Freddie and Alistair. 


Great play at Borough Netball tournament w/c March 4th 


This week we competed in the borough netball competition, notching up a fourth place out of thirty three schools. We wanted to follow up our schools recent success in finishing top of our mini league (see story below) and really push ourselves against schools we haven't played before. We had five games in the first group stage, with only the top two schools set to qualify. Winning four of our five games meant we were through to the next stage. We then entered the second group stage, knowing coming top was the only way we would qualify for the semi finals. Despite losing the first game we won the next three, moving to the semi finals after winning the final game with an impressive 5-0 scoreline. Unfortunately, we fell at the semi-final hurdle to a Hampton side, losing 4-2 in a game which could have gone either way. We played some truly fabulous netball. This performance is a credit, not just to those who took part on the day, but to the other players who push them, week in, week out, at our club training sessions. To finish fourth out of thirty three schools is a magnificent achievement. Well done to Isla, Hettie, Mila, Sybil, Mollie, Albert, Xander and Eli.

Well done to all those who took part and really showed how far we have come this year. Well done to - Izzy, Hettie, Mollie, Mila, Annika, Sybil, Xander, Albert and Eli


Huge congratulations to our football girls who are through to the cup!- w/c 26th February 

This week we traveled to the Vineyard School for our final league game of the season. To ensure qualification for the cup we needed to secure a win, nothing else would do. Following a very even first half we went in at the break with the score line at 1-1 thanks to Madi who finished off a very well worked goal. After a half time discussion on how we could try and dominate in the second half we grabbed a winning goal in the dying seconds of the game, thanks to an unbelievable volley by Hettie. The goal was well received by the excited St Stephen's supporters on the sidelines. Two fabulous goals and a real effort from the whole team. Unfortunately Florence was not available, however we welcomed back Sybil for her first game of the season after injury. Well done Hettie, Annie, Mollie, Sybil, Persey, Madi, Emi and player of the match Mila. We are so proud of you all.
