Published on 23/02/24

It’s been an action-packed few months for our sports teams at Senior School and Sixth Form (11-18), with District Cross Country Championships, Basketball, Football, and Netball in full swing.

Stephen Perse Sport - Cross CountryDistrict Cross Country Championships 2023

Congratulations to all the students who competed at the District Schools Cross Country Championships at Netherhall School. We had a large contingent of students from Years 7-9, the weather was kind but the course was muddy.

Stand out performances go to Eleanor K in Year 11 who came third in the Inter Girls age group and Grace K who came eleventh in the Junior Girls age group. Both have now qualified to compete as part of the Cambridge District Team at the County Schools Cross Country Championships.

Other notable performances went to Alice E - 18th, Jake F - 29th, Harry O - 31st in their respective age groups. Well done to all who competed.

Basketball Update

The Under 18 boys Basketball team has continued their good form in the local Basketball league. They recently played two fixtures in two days, winning both and showing off some excellent skills. Thoroughly deserved as they are totally committed to training and to improving their game. It was lovely to see them on Saturday, spontaneously playing 1v1 with King’s Ely players, after the match had finished. Good sportsmanship and building friendships is what it is all about after all!


Football Update

Stephen Perse Sport - FootballCongratulations to the Under 15 boys who are through to the semi-final of the ISFA Bowl after a superb 4-1 victory over City of London Freemen’s School in the quarter final. After a tight first half which ended 1-1, the team played some outstanding attacking football whilst defending resolutely in the second, to record a comfortable win. They now have a tough away trip to either Cranmore School or Bryanston School.

The Under 15 girls have their ISFA Shield quarter final against Forest School in February.

We also have District Cup first round fixtures coming up over the next few weeks to look forward to. Good luck to all of the teams involved!

Finally, good luck to Natalie G, Alice E and Juliet R who are attending the ISFA Under 14 girls regional trials.


Stephen Perse Sport - Netball

Netball Update

The Netball term has started amazingly well after some extremely successful netball camps that were held just before Christmas for Years 4-9. Armed with experienced internal and external coaches and some of our amazing Year 11/12 volunteers, over 100 students took part in a range of skills and of course, lots of games ready for the netball season to commence. 

Regional tournament - Our U14 & U16 squads went off to regionals at the end of January after both teams qualified by winning their county rounds in November. The U14 team, captained by Natalie G, played really well winning all but two of their matches and just missing out on progressing through to the semi-finals on goal difference. The U16 team, captained by Eva F, also started well winning their first four matches before coming up against the eventual winners Berkhamsted School. We were all so proud of all our students, they were a real credit to the school.
