Leicester Netball Tour
Forty pupils from Years 7 and 8, in addition to four sixth formers travelled to the midlands for their annual netball tour. On the Friday pupils enjoyed a training session lead by two Loughborough Lightening players, followed by a mixed age group tournament.
On Saturday morning all five teams played very competitive games against Nottingham Girls’ High School. Both Year 7 teams had comprehensive wins demonstrating how much they have improved since the start of school in September. The Year 8 A and B teams both dominated possession and the score line in their first match with sound wins over the opposition. In order to challenge the girls further, all Year 8 teams played the age group/team above them; despite great team efforts they were narrowly beaten.
