It never fails to amaze me just how many different things our boys take part in.

This last couple of weeks have been no exception. In sport we have seen our U11 Basketball team win the ISA London South regional title. In fact we were able to play two teams, our “B” team finished fourth!

Our U11 rugby team succeeded in reaching the quarter finals of the ISA National Rugby Tournament.

As I write our U8’s are competing in another football tournament this afternoon.

Last Saturday our Swimmers were competing at the ISA regional finals, swimmers that qualify for the finals will compete at the Olympic Pool.

In addition Mr Padfield and I had to watch in agony as our U11 footballers won their first round Croydon Cup match 5 – 4 on penalties, having been locked 4 all after extra time!

As if all the sport wasn’t enough, we have boys rehearsing for next week’s performance alongside Whitgift School in the Autumn Collection Concert, Year 5 boys are preparing for their poetry performance next Monday and the Lower School are already well advanced in their rehearsals for this year’s nativity play.

Obviously I am delighted to underline the variety of the boy’s activities.  I am equally pleased at the high level of their achievements.  But the thing that gives me enormous pleasure is the complementary remarks that I have received from people not associated with the school about the boys conduct and behaviour, their sportsmanship and the smiles on their faces as they approach all of these challenges.  Who could ask for more!
