On Tuesday 2 April, we were delighted to host the premier event in our school sporting calendar, the Sports Presentation Evening. In an event that celebrates sporting excellence, students from both the Junior and the Senior Schools were honoured for their contributions to school sport, as well as their achievements in their chosen sports outside of the classroom.
Since the start of the academic year, our school sports teams have reached 3 National Finals, 5 Regional Finals and became County Champions in two age groups. This is without mentioning the exceptional achievements of their students externally in the world of sport, with students boasting titles in a wide variety of sports such as Equestrian, Karate and Skiing.
We were excited to be joined by 3 stars from the sporting world to help celebrate the festivities. Northampton Saints stars, Jamie Gibson and Luther Burrell, were joined by Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Netballer Eboni Usoro-Brown, to speak passionately to an enthralled audience about their careers, their influences and what makes them strive to achieve greatness.
Congratulations are in order for all of the deserving young athletes who picked up awards during the evening, including Georgie Forde-Wells, who was named as the school’s Sports Personality of the Year, the U16 Netballers who were named as Team of the Year, and Paralympic and Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Ellie Robinson, who was awarded the school’s Exceptional Achievement Award.
