Senior Sports Awards 2015

Senior Sports Awards 2015

Last week the School hosted its annual Senior Sports Awards in the Thomas Arnold Hall. Our special guest this year was Alex Danson, current GB Hockey player and 2012 Olympic bronze medallist. She gave a passionate, gripping and inspiring speech to our pupils about her Olympic hockey selection.

The big winners of the night were Charles Dunn and Eleanor Taylor for their services to sport. The coveted Team of the Year award was won by the 1st XI Girls’ Hockey Team. They won six out of their nine games (plus two draws) and also had a very good set of results on their tour to Holland in October.

The individual winners were:

Sport Most Improved Player of the Season
Hockey (girls) Emma Tizard Eleanor Taylor
Rugby Leo Gloor Charlie Collins
Netball Lulu Cope Claudia Eeles
Hockey (boys) George Elliott Hector Lyons
Football Eddie Abbott Jonathan Kermode

Awards for cricket and tennis will be made at the end of term.

This was a successful year of sport for all of our senior teams, with an improved success rate in all major sports. Well done to all the winners.
