Sporting successes: girls triumph in both netball and football

Mar 13, 2024 | Prep School, Sports

St George’s School Windsor Castle’s ‘Sport for All’ philosophy is certainly reaping dividends, with two Under 11 teams gaining medals in the space of just a week!

Last Friday Year 6 students took home the winners medals at the IAPS Small Schools Under 11 Netball Tournament at Framlingham College in Suffolk. The seven-strong team won all seven of their matches on route to the final, before displaying impressive skill and determination to win 5-4 in the event’s nail-biting conclusion.

This week the girls tested their mettle again, this time at the Under 11 Football Tournament organised by Newland House, taking home the silver medals after winning four of their six matches at Bushey Park, Teddington.

Aimee O’Donovan, Assistant Director of Sport at St George’s, said: “I’m so thrilled for the girls. Our unique 4Ps sports pathway programme takes the students on a journey through play, participation, progress and performance, both to discover and nurture individual talents and also to develop a real love of sport – both of which were clearly on display throughout both tournaments.”
