Inter-House Swimming Gala

Sticking to a water theme, last week was the annual inter-house swim gala.

There was great house spirit from the all the Houses with every race greeted with loud applause and cheers.  Some really talented Queen Anne’s swimmers were on display but every race had its own story to tell of skill.  Endeavour and determination was abundant, just to gain that extra valuable point for the team. At the end of the gala there could, however only be one winning House.

Netball

This week there were some tough netball matches against Godstowe and The Abbey.

The U16 regional netball team spent a tense Saturday competing in the regional round of the Nationals Schools Netball Competition. They showed determination and great athleticism, with some superb team play. Despite losing their very first match, they kept their nerve and went from strength to strength, beating high performing teams like Wycombe Abbey and Aylesbury High. This meant they ended the morning second in their pool. They had to face the winners of the other pool, Brighton College, to fight for a place at the Nationals finals. The stakes were high and both teams played well, with Brighton College sadly finally beating them by 3 goals. The girls really gave a good account of themselves and came so close. They should be proud of themselves.

U16 Netball

Tennis

The U18 team have been playing matches since September and after winning the Berkshire rounds we progressed through to regional knockouts and on Thursday they won the knockout. Special thanks go to Katie Green who stood in at the last minute for injured Georgie Evans.

This means that the team are ranked in the top eight U18 tennis teams in the country and have qualified for the National Finals.
