A round-up of all the latest sporting news...
Riding - National NSEA County Show Jumping Champions
Four of our Hazlegrove riders headed up to Buckingham to compete in the NSEA (National Schools Equestrian Association) National Finals. The children rode brilliantly and claimed the title National NSEA County Champions. They now go forward to represent England in the NSEA Nations Cup in October. Read the full report here.
Congratulations to our Lady Taverners girls' cricket team who finished as runners up in the Regional Finals this week. During the day they had superb wins over the Hampshire, the Wiltshire and the Devon County Champions but narrowly (penultimate ball) lost to the Dorset champions - Bournemouth Girls School. They can be very proud of this achievement; they have placed some lovely cricket throughout the competition.
Last week two Hazlegrove teams were victorious in their respective tournaments: The U10’s won the Clayesmore Festival and the U13’s won the Port Regis Festival - a great start to the season.

National Schools Biathlon Finals at Crystal Palace
During the Easter holidays 18 children and 3 staff represented Hazlegrove at the National Schools Finals at Crystal Palace. Everyone really enjoyed this special occasion and competing at this national competition. Our U10 boys team of Charlie S, Charlie G and Gray S finished a very creditable 3rd overall and our staff team of Miss Kurle, Miss Watson and Mrs Evans won their ‘Female Teachers’ category.
Congratulations to our squash players who all played so well at the National IAPS Tournament that took place at Millfield in the Easter holidays. A special mention must go to Monty P-P for reaching the semi-finals of the senior cup competition and also to Ben F who finished as runner up in the plate section. Well done indeed.
We were delighted to hear that the following have qualified for this year’s prestigious National Finals that take place at the K2 Centre in Crawley on Saturday 6 May:
- U13 Girls Medley Relay Team - Tilly L, Kai S, Tara M and Anya E
- U13 Backstroke - Anya E
- U12 Backstroke - Angus E
Congratulations and good luck!
What a lovely evening our Year 7 and 8 girls had last weekend in Bath. We travelled up to watch Team Bath take on the Celtic Dragons in a Super League match and we were treated to a thrilling evening of top class sport. Team Bath won in a very exciting and tense final quarter.
The girls really enjoyed seeing the sport played at such a high standard and we hope that this will have given them some tips to put into action in the future!
