Sports Round Up

Congratulations to our under 16 boy’s hockey team for recently making the final of the regional hockey tournament. This was the first time they made the regional finals final and it was a fantastic achievement by the team. They were narrowly defeated 1-0 and sadly lost out on a qualifying place in the national school competition. Also well done to our under 12 hockey team who claimed the county title this week They won all their matches, averaging a score of over five goals a game and didn’t concede all day. They now progress to regional finals. What a fantastic team effort!

We are thrilled to announce that our Key Stage 5 squash team, current National Schools Champions, have recently qualified and will now compete to defend their title at the national finals this year. They recently beat three other schools in their group to qualify. The boys are currently undergoing preparations with Head Coach Tim Smith, who has planned a masterclass with former world No. 1 Karim Gawad and current No. 8 Mazen Hesham as part of their ongoing training and mentoring.

Meanwhile,the 5th Years made it through to the County Cup Rugby Final, which took place on last Friday at Hayle RFC. They played a fantastic game against the reigning champions, Redruth, with the match coming down to the last kick of the ball. With a final score of 19-18, Truro can be proud of their efforts and the improvement they have shown this season has been fantastic to watch. A huge thank you to all staff, parents and pupils for their support, which means a tremendous amount to everyone involved.

Well done to the under 12 cricket team, who have progressed to the County Indoor Finals.  And Congratulations to our Under-14 Netballers who travelled to Farmors School to play in the third round of the National Bowl Netball competition, where the team won, finishing 33-14.

Well done to our under 15 boys football team, who played in a national semi-final on Tuesday, against the City of London School. Despite being on the wrong side of the result, the team should quite rightly be proud of their incredible cup run, which caps off a great season. Thank you to the team for representing the school so well and thank you to the staff who travelled with the team to London.

Finally in Judo Truro School and Truro School Prep entered a skilled team of judoka in the Kazoku Championships Red and Yellow Belt Future Olympic Hopes competition last Sunday in Porthtowan. Teams from all over Cornwall and Devon competed over a full day and our pupils did extremely well, with both students from Truro School securing Gold in their weight categories. Meanwhile, our Prep students were not to be outdone and all finished the day bemedalled. For many, this was their first competition so this result was all the more impressive.
