Congratulations to the Year 8 tennis team who came second at the National finals in Bolton this weekend. They had two comfortable victories against Manchester High School and Bedford School on Saturday and came up against the number one seed, Surbiton High on Sunday. The girls fought hard and challenged the opponents but Surbiton took the win. This competition started in April with 600 schools competing for the top four positions at the finals.
The girls have secured our position as the number one school in Britain for girls’ tennis. This is calculated annually, in conjunction with the Aberdare Cup and the Year 8 and 10 Team Schools Tennis Competition.
Well done to the girls involved: Esther Adeshina, Hannah Smith, Abbie Tyler, Leah Gonzales-Edwards and Jessica Holloway.
