It’s been a particularly busy few days of sport for the school this past week. Last Saturday (30th September), there were five fixtures that took place at Barn Elms. Four of the five fixtures were against St Richard Reynolds Catholic College, with our 1XV playing the London Oratory School’s B team. A fantastic four out of the five results were wins. Commiserations to the losing U15A side, however, great effort and spirit was shown by all during the games. A full breakdown of the results can be seen below.
U18/1stXV Won 31-00
U15A Lost 0-60
U14A Won 42-15

A big thank you also to all those that were in attendance to support the boys in their respective games.
Furthermore, there have been two football fixtures this week. On Tuesday, our U16A team played The Douay Martyrs School. A close but unfortunate losing result for the boys; going into extra time it was 4-4 but the Doug Martyrs School scored twice to make the final result 6-4. They have vowed to bounce back stronger for their next game. Moving on, our U14A team played Southfields Academy in the Area Cup on Wednesday and had a superb result, beating their opponents 6-1. An excellent result for this team, who also two weeks previously beat Acland Burghley School 6-0 in the English Schools’ Football Association competition. They are playing in round two today against The City of London Academy. Fantastic work gents! We look forward to the next batch of fixtures.
Finally, we had boys competing in the English Schools Cross Country Cup on Thursday of this week. Some of our boys did exceptionally well in this and we await a report on the individual successes. Overall, the Junior team (U14s) made it through to the next stage which is a huge achievement. Fantastic work gents, good luck for the next round!
