It has been a real pleasure to see so many Year 7 girls get involved with rounders this year. Many of the girls have participated in extra curricular throughout the year but it was lovely to see students like Freya Sanders, Ereena Ullah and Leah Rendall join the team. The girls’ first fixture was against St Augustines and despite many of our Year 7’s having only had one practice before the game, we came away with a successful win. The girls’ fielding was their strong point, they managed to stop many St Augustines players from scoring rounders. Unfortunately, the girls could not repeat their successes in their second game of the season against Kingdown. Despite the loss, the girls all played incredibly well as a team and were gracious in defeat. The girls went away and worked on their mistakes and weaker areas during training in preparation for their next game. Their hard work paid off with a strong performance and a secure victory against Melksham Oak on home soil. Overall, I have been so impressed with the attitude, sportsmanship and dedication of each and every member of the Year 7 rounders team.

dedication continues into next year. For their first game of the season, the Year 8’s faced St Augustines and despite never having played as a team before, they put in an incredible performance and came out victorious. For their next fixture, we headed to Kingdown and despite some great batting and precise fielding we couldn’t repeat the previous weeks successes. Towards the end of the season, on 27th June, the girls attended the Year 8 rounders tournament. A few new faces also gave great performances in the tournament and contributed immensely to the team’s effort, in particular, Emily Jenkin and Yazmin Green. Ultimately the girls finished 5th out of 6 teams, however this isn’t a true reflection of the skilled performances and excellent attitude of all the girls that participated. I was really impressed with every one of them and they have done themselves and the school proud.



The overall progress and achievement of the Year 8 rounders team this year has been lovely to see. With consistent training and a great attitude to rounders, the girls have really improved this season. It has been particularly pleasing to see Sammy Kirk, Rachel Godden, Katie Williams, Tayla Strachan and Sofia Mistretta all getting involved and I hope that this

It has been lovely to see a large variety of girls attending fixtures this term. Despite injuries and other commitments, the Year 9 girls have managed to produce squads for each game and come with an excellent attitude and camaraderie. Our first fixture was a tough one, St Augustines, where although we had the same number of girls, they also featured boys in their squad. We went away defeated but it was an excellent learning curve for our team who for some, was their first ever Rounders game! We also felt defeat from Kingdown who brought some big hitters with them and St Laurence who had a warm up game against our Year 10’s first. The girls also attended the
