Summer Sporting Round Up

As well as enjoying a well-deserved break over the summer holidays some of our pupils have been busy achieving extraordinary things in their sporting worlds.

At the end of last term, both our U14 Cricket team and Sixth form football players were excited to share their successes in the finals of their matches with upper sixth winning the League Cup and the cricketers being crowned county champions.

Daisy H and Naomi H headed off to the European Triathle and Laser Run Championships in Erding, Germany. The girls had a busy few days racing and achieved medal positions in some of their races which was even more impressive considering this was their first time competing in the U15 and U17 categories.

In athletics news, Billy and Matilda represented Cornwall in the Southwest Intercounties Championships. Billy placed a fantastic 1st in both the U13 Boys 100m and 200m with Matilda placing 3rd in the 100m and 4th in the 200m for the U13 girls.

Our tennis players have also had a busy summer; Millie and Jonny won the U12 James Webster County Champions girls and boys singles title, and Archie was crowned County Champion in the Men’s single.

Our hockey players have also had an array of achievements with Grace N and Summer R being selected for the West Panthers Hockey team, and Summer being awarded the West Panthers Players Player of the Tournament. Findlay W continued to win international caps as he played for Scotland U16s in Granada in the 8 Nations tournament. He was also selected for the Scottish Hockey’s BRAVE Cup. Meanwhile, Sophie D played in the prestigious England Hockey Talent Academy Festival in Nottingham playing the University of Exeter TA.

Congratulations to cricketers James, Max, Theo, Sam, Ollie & Jack who all represented the county this summer playing some fantastic cricket across the southwest. And, well done to Kayleigh C who made the final selection for the prestigious Centre of Excellence (COE) rugby union programme for the 2023-24 season.

Congratulations to Woody who has just enjoyed a great couple of days representing @isfafootball U14 National side and to Barnaby and Willoughby who had a successful time competing for Portreath at the National Surf Lifesaving National Champs (Nipper’s comp) at Branksome Chine last weekend.

A group of our keen athletes in the 5th year and Sixth Form spent a few days completing a pre-season camp at Ashbury Manor. Completing fitness activities, rounds of golf and having a dip in the hydrotherapy pool were all on the agenda, as well as playing Rugby and Football.

Finally, a huge well done to formal pupil Freddie Issaka who, after leaving Truro School last year, has signed his first professional contract with Plymouth Argyle.

We look forward to sharing more sporting achievements from the term ahead.
