PE Update!

Published 5 October 2023

Highlights from our recent PE activity including: U14 and U16 Netball, Cross Country Festival, U13 Girls’ Football and Year 9 Rugby…

U14 and U16 Netball

St Bart’s entered two teams in the Pre-Counties Netball Tournament at Queen Anne’s Caversham. It’s a tough competition and St Bart’s were looking forward to the challenge.The U14s had a tough first game to start with but they composed themselves and lost narrowly to St Mary’s School and by only one goal to the The Marist School, before being beaten by The Abbey School. The girls showed great resilience and lots of potential. Player of the tournament was awarded to Violet Hughes.

The U16s got off to a flying start, winning against St Mary’s, 10-2, but were then beaten by Wellington College and The Abbey School. The girls regrouped and went on to win three more games against tough opposition, showing some great team work and versatility, stepping up every time they took to court. They finished a very respectable 4th, and should be very proud of themselves. Player of the tournament was awarded to Anna Delavere.  The highlight for all the girls were the croissants and cookies provided by Queen Annes!

Cross Country Festival

Well done to the 30 students who took part in the Cross Country Festival at St Gabriel’s. Great fun was had by all. (See pic above)

U13 Girls’ Football

Our U13 Girls’ Football team played together for the first time last week in their English Schools Cup fixture against King Alfred’s School, Wantage. We unfortunately lost, 3-1, and Miss Bilcliff still isn’t sure how! The girls played really well together, considering it was their first match, creating lots and lots of chances which we couldn’t take. Alice scored our only goal with a great finish. Despite the result, the future looks bright!

Year 9 Rugby

Well done to the Year 9 Rugby team who drew 29-29 in a well contested friendly against Perrins School. Players of the match were Josh and James!
