Another great term for sport

Worth School

It was another great term for sport at Worth – and not just because one of our rugby players made his England U18s debut and one of our hockey players reached a national final with her club side.

1st XV rugby player Felix won two caps for England at the U18s Six Nations Festival in Italy, starting the match against Scotland and coming on as a replacement against Georgia – both of which were victories.

1st XI hockey player Emma, meanwhile, is off to Nottingham this weekend to represent Sevenoaks U18 girls in the England Hockey National Final, having just helped her adult team – Sevenoaks Women’s 2s – gain promotion to the National League. Emma has also secured a field hockey scholarship to the University of California and is very grateful for the support and coaching from Worth’s Head of Hockey, double Olympian Calum Giles.

But it is not just individuals who have done well – our teams have impressed too. Under the guidance of Mr Giles, our 1st XI hockey boys won seven of their 11 games in the Lent Term, including national cup ties, which is an impressive record.

The 1st XI boys’ football team finished the season with a four-match unbeaten run, while at the other end of the age range the U13A boys won five and drew one of their eight fixtures, including national competitions.

Meanwhile, our U15A netball girls won eight of their 11 matches and our teams also enjoyed plenty of success at the Rosslyn Park National Rugby Sevens, with the 1st VII boys winning their group and the 1st VII girls progressing to the second day of competition for an impressive third year on the trot.

At the end of the Lent Term, awards for Most Valuable Player and Most Improved Player were made in assembly for pupils in the U13 to U15 netball, boys’ football and boys’ hockey teams. Here is a selection of pictures from the presentations.
