In hockey, the Under 15 A team managed a comprehensive victory over King Edward’s School, Birmingham, winning 4-1 however the B team succumbed to an impressive second team, losing 2-1. The Under 13 B team, won 9-0 against the same opponents, resulting in the 13th match unbeaten for the Under 13 B side against King Edward’s. The Under 13 A team, however, struggled losing 1-0 in a tightly fought contest.
 
In Rugby Union, a mix of three results for the Under 12 with a win, loss and a draw against Bromsgrove School. The Under 12 A team won 30-20, whereas the B team lost 15-10 and the C team drew 25-all. Competitive games, with some people experiencing their first taste of contact rugby against tough opposition.
 
Following on from their first match against KES Stratford last season, the second game of women’s rugby game was played. Whilst many of the upper sixth had done a year of training to reach this point, it was the first ever game for many of the lower sixth. Playing two fixtures, they won one 5-2 against King Henry VIII School, Coventry and lost their second, 2-0 to King Edward’s Stratford. Led and captained by Nour Gado, this is a large step forward for school rugby and for progression of women’s sport.
