Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 10th September 2018

A round-up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 10 September 2018.


The term has got off to a busy start with netball trials for the L4s on Saturday morning. It is wonderful to see so many of our new girls show such enthusiasm to sport at Queen Anne’s!




Lacrosse trials were underway on Saturday afternoon for year groups 4 – U6, a great turnout once again.



British Red Cross Dance Finals

Queen Anne’s girls have been very busy over the summer. Four days into their summer holidays the dance company were up early and on their way to the O2 for the finals of The British Red Cross Make Your Move dance competition. There were eleven acts in the competition, six of those being seniors, who the dance company were up against.

After a long day with a dress and technical rehearsal, the QAS dancers took to the stage for their premier performance on the O2 stage. The piece they performed was based on the work of the Red Cross and how, in war torn countries, children are taken to the front line to fight.

It was a great way to finish this academic year and a real inspiration for the dance company moving into the new year.


Synchronised Swimming

Annaliese M (L5) competed in a national synchronised swimming competition at The Olympic pool in London and won team silver, in a category with over 700 competitors.




Zara O (L5) competed at the English Schools Athletics Association National Finals. She won the U15 discus competition with an enormous throw of 37.79m, which now ranks her first in the country at U15 level. She also ranks 6th in the country at U15 level for shot.


Pony Club National Championships

At the end of July Sorcha M (U5) and Ellie T (L6) represented their Pony Club at Area Eventing in Warwickshire, both winning their sections, which meant they qualified for Pony Club National Championships as individuals.  The National Championships were held at Cholmondely Castle in August with competitors coming from the whole UK and Ireland.

Both girls and their horses had great fun and completed the one day event comprising all three disciplines:  dressage, show jumping and a challenging cross country course.  Special thanks goes to their fabulous support team Cliona M (U6) and and Sophie T, who has just left Queen Anne’s to go to university.



Goring Heath Horse Trials

Several Queen Anne’s girls also competed in the Goring Heath Horse Trials. Sorcha M (U5) won the event and has qualified for the British Eventing National Championships next July at Frickley Park.



UIPM World Laser Run Championships

Libby R (L4) has qualified for the UIPM World Laser Run Championships in Dublin at the end of September. UIPM is the international governing body of modern pentathlon. Laser-Run combines running and shooting in fast-paced and dynamic races, including four rounds of laser pistol shooting from 10 meters distance and four times 800 meters run. Athletes have to hit a target 5 times before they can run. The total number of hits is 20 and total running distance is 3,200 meters.

Libby has also been selected for Team GB to race at the UIPM World Biathle and World Triathle Championships in Egypt during October half term.


Lacrosse Tour to America

Over the summer Bella B and Abby S (U6) were part of the squad of forty girls from the England U19 National Academy programme who went on tour to the USA in preparation for next year’s 2019 Under 19 World Championships in Canada.

Emily O (L6) has now also been named as part of the world cup squad and Millie B (L6) has been selected to join the National Academy.


England Lacrosse Championships

Bella B, who has just left the sixth form to go on to study Medical Physiology and Therapeutics at the University of Nottingham, was joint-captain of the U20 England team that has just won the gold medal at the U20 European Championships.

In addition, she was voted the most valuable defender of the whole tournament. A huge congratulations to Bella and her team!
