Thank you to Miss Pascoe for leading this team and the following students: Poppy D-P, Rosie M, Sylvie, Kitty C, Phoebe H, Vanessa, Millie P, Tilly T, Florrie W and Jessica P.
Year 9’s season has been a little quiet in term of league fixtures as some of them were cancelled due to the weather. Nevertheless, they have made it through to the finals which are due to take place on Thursday 30th March. We have some well seasoned players on the team who have been to the finals previously and captain Amelia among others have been honing their skills in Netball clubs outside of school too.
Thank you to Amelia, Verity, Rosie, Anna, Martha, Amelie G, Amelie H, Udoka and Jemima.
