The U14 boys’ hockey team conceded only one goal on their way to becoming County Champions at yesterday’s tournament at Blundell’s.
After convincing wins against Mount Kelly and Sidmouth, their final pool match was against defending champions Exeter School. A closely fought 1-0 win took the boys to the semi-finals, where they beat Devonport High School 3-1.
In the final they once again met Exeter School and this time put on a very powerful display, beating them 4-0 to take the trophy.
The team will head to the Regional Finals at Millfield on 15th March.
Our trio of U16 gymnasts have qualified for the national finals by winning the South West Milano competition, at Kingsley school, last weekend.
The team of Mia Morris, Martha MacDonald and Ellen French beat teams from Gloucestershire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Mia was also placed 5th individually.
Joining them in the National Finals, which will be held in Stoke in March, are the U13 Mixed team, who were already guaranteed a qualification place for the National Finals. Charlie McClure performed superbly to take gold in the U13 Boys. He will be joined by Annabel Maskell, Jasmine Jefferies and Lottie Wakefield for the finals.
Also performing at the weekend were the Year 6 Novice team of Ellen Pugsley, Evie Ford and Anna Jefferies, who performed briliantly for their first competition, being placed 3rd, 5th and 6th respectively.
Congratulations to Year 10 Ellie Braddick who has successfully led a team of young investors through to the semi-final of the London Institute of Banking and Finance share trading competition.
The competition challenged young teams to invest £1,000 of imaginery money, on the stock exchange for a month. The idea was for them to make as much money as possible during that time.
Ellie and her team's shrewd investment choices meant that they defeated the majority of the other five thousand teams from around the country.
Not only that but they defeated their business teacher Mr Jansen!
