U12A hockey v Queen Marys

Score: 0-0

POM: Faith (I)

Only our second game, the girls worked hard throughout and listened to advice. Well done to Faith in goal with some excellent saves.

U12B hockey v Queen Mary's

Score: 3-1 Win

POM: Sofia G A (I)

Well done to the U12s on Saturday, most of whom have only just started playing hockey and have never played in a match before!

They worked so hard and had a great time on the pitch, even scoring 3 goals. Fantastic effort to come away with a win with such limited experience - well done!

U13A hockey v Queen Mary's

Score: 4-0

POM: Louise B (II) & Bobble P (II)

Another stormer of a match from the U13As. The girls continue to work together as a team to produce some great scorelines.

With some lovely passing through the pitch and making the most of short corners, the U13s managed a 4-0 win at the weekend. They look forward to the next round of their cup match after Leave Out - details of which will be on SOCs this week.

U13B hockey v Queen Mary's

Score: 8-0 Loss

POM: Ellie H (II) & Keiana C (II)

The U13Bs had a hard battle on Saturday against a well-versed Queen Mary's side.

The girls fought to keep the ball out, but they kept coming back putting our Goal Keeper Ellie under immense pressure. It was a great effort by all and, with more practice, there is a lot of potential in this squad.

U14 hockey v Queen Mary's

Score: 4-0 Loss

POM: Izzy A (III)

The U14s were up against it on Saturday with no subs and little warm-up time. They got stuck in straight away, but mentally found they weren't in the game.

They worked hard to defend and win possession, but just could not keep the ball. Some great saves by Bronwyn kept the team in the fight but unfortunately, they could not work the ball into the D. Well done to the squad and good luck to them in their first round of the U14 National League competition on Tuesday afternoon.

U15 hockey v Queen Mary's

Score: 4-0 Win

POM: Olympe E (IV), Issy B (IV) & Annabelle H (IV)

After a narrow loss last Saturday, the U15s were out to prove themselves this week. The squad worked fantastically to get the ball up the pitch, linking nicely through the midfield and supporting the pass after they made it. The girls fought hard and wanted to win every ball, which resulted in several chances on goal.

Poppy R (IV) managed to put away three goals, with some lovely passes through from our defence and from midfield with Amelie S (IV) also sneaking one past the keeper to give the girls a 4-0 lead. They maintained this right to the final whistle with the defence working overtime to cover any loose balls. This sets the squad up brilliantly for their first cup match against The King's School Chester on Thursday.

U14 York & District Round National Schools Hockey League


  • St Peter's 6-1 Loss,
  • Ampleforth 5-0 Loss

POM: Bobble P (II), Bronwyn G (III) & Izzy A (III)

After a loss on Saturday, the girls were ready to prove themselves again in the first round of their league competition. With some fierce opposition, they reminded themselves of their tactics and game plan.

The team played fantastically in their first match against St Peter's, giving them a run for their money as they moved the ball up the pitch time and time again. Unfortunately, some of our chances were denied but in the second half, Maddie B (II) managed to sneak one past when on a 1vs1 with the keeper.

The defence worked tirelessly with some fantastic saves by Amelia B (III). The team was exhausted when they went up against Ampleforth and their confidence wasn't as strong, but they represented their school brilliantly so well done to all.

Division One Knockout LTA Youth Schools Tennis Year 9/10

Score: Win 5-1

This is the competition from the summer term, when the team won through to the knockout stages and are county league winners. We were drawn against St Aidan's, so the team of Miwa (V), Celia (IV) Isabel (IV) and Poppy (IV) all had to play a singles match as well as a doubles match.

In the singles, Miwa had a tricky game against their number one and there was excellent play, but she just missed out on the win. Celia played an attacking game and controlled the rallies well with some lovely net play finishing with winning volleys. The score was now 1-1.

Isabel and Poppy in the doubles worked hard as a team showing good communication to win it comfortably. We were 2-1 up. In the last round, Poppy played singles and finished a solid game. In the doubles Miwa and Celia, who were in a new partnership, enjoyed a 6-2 victory with us now being at 4-1.

Isabel's singles was a great match as her opponent was a good player too. From being 5-3 down, she fought hard to draw the match to 5-5 and then 6-5 down, to 6-6. A tiebreak to seven points to win the match and she did it with a 7-3 win with a huge round of applause for both teams on an excellent singles.

Overall a 5-1 victory. We are looking forward to the next round. Well played everyone!
