Prep School

A fantastic last week of sport for the Prep school started with the U10 B girls travelling to Exeter for a wonderful festival where they played in mixed teams with girls from other schools. The girls played brilliantly and showed off all their skills they have learnt this term. Mrs Czeres was particularly proud of the standard of footwork and passing! On Saturday all the Year 3 children had the opportunity to play in their respective festivals at Millfield Prep. It was a long morning, especially for the boys, but all the children worked so hard and produced a really good standard of hockey and netball.

On Monday, Year 3 and 4 had their last set of matches. The girls played West Buckland and were tenacious and hard-working showing some great skills and strong passing! The boys faced Kings Hall and it was great to see the improvement in confidence across all the team especially Year 3.

The last Year 5 and 6 matches were tough against Blundells and tested our ability. The boys fought valiantly, the U11A team struggled to convert chances. The girls as ever worked hard but struggled against some tenacious players.

Huge thank you to all the boys and girls in the Prep School for such a positive term with significant improvement in performances by all. Thank you also to those who turn up week on week in our lovely British weather to support the players! Finally thank you to the sports staff who are so adaptable and focused on giving all the children the best experiences. Role on cricket and possibly some sun?

Senior School

Cross Country

Congratulations to Oli in Year 9 who represented Somerset Schools at the National Cross Country Championships in Pontefract last weekend.
An impressive season for Oli and we are all very proud of his achievements.


1st XI

In the 1st XI’s final match of the year, Queen’s played Clayesmore. Clayesmore had been strong this year, however the Queen’s boys believed they could take them on and challenge them. Queen’s started the fixture creating plenty of opportunities to score. Unfortunately, their cutting edge was not there in the final 3rd. Clayesmore then countered to score their opening goal. This opening goal changed the tide of the match, Clayesmore scored another 2 in quick succession meaning the score was 3-0 at halftime. Queen’s came back into the match with 2 goals in the 2nd half, alas it was too late to produce a comeback. Final score 5-2.

U15 Hockey

In a thrilling culmination to their season, the U15 Boys faced off against formidable opponents in their final game. Despite their determination, they encountered a rare but narrow loss that did little to overshadow their outstanding efforts throughout the campaign.

From the opening whistle, both teams exhibited a fierce competitive spirit, vying for control of the game but it was Queen’s who were pinned down in their defensive quarter with two breakaway attempts from Theo and Zac but their defence remained resolute, thwarting all goal attempts.

In a fiercely contested battle that went down to the wire, the U15 Boys ultimately found themselves on the wrong side of a narrow loss. A brilliant goal from Tom and an excellent passage of play that resulted in Zac also on the score sheet the result was short of victory. Despite the disappointment of the result, their performance was nothing short of commendable. Each player demonstrated unwavering commitment and resilience. Joint players of the match were awarded to Jake and Zac for their resilience and impact on the performance.

As the final whistle blew, signalling the end of the match and the conclusion of the season, the U15 Boys walked off the field with their heads held high. Although the outcome may not have been in their favour on this occasion, their efforts throughout the season have been nothing short of brilliant. Their dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship have been a testament to the values of the sport and the camaraderie forged within the team.


U15 Vs King’s College

A cracking finish to the season saw Queen’s host Kings College in a keenly contested, yet friendly game. After getting behind in the first quarter, the girls showed great spirit in the next to maintain the gap. The game ebbed and flowed in exchanging periods of dominance. It was a bumper crowd for Queen’s and a big squad who celebrated interceptions and goals alike. This team have shown great togetherness and determination while enjoying each other’s success. Today’s match was our best yet for coming back strong and finishing on the charge with the final score 24-17 to King”s and a new record number of goals for us.

Exeter Cathedral School

The U13A Team took on Exeter Cathedral School for their final netball match of the term. They took great ownership of the match and had a clear attacking and defending focus for each quarter. With an early 6-3 lead the girls went from strength to strength, resetting play, offering lateral passes and making some exceptional interceptions. The lead continued to build and the girls decided to play a new position for the final quarter. Tilly and Eliza shot well, scoring 4 goals. Teniore tried her hand at GK. The girls worked well and in great spirits- it was a lovely and mature performance from the team- well done. Final score was 18-6.

The final match of the season for the U13B Team, and what a match! This team displayed excellent teamwork, knowledge of the game and a superb work ethic from start to finish. Naomi and Lily worked so well in the mid-court and feeding into the shooters. Niamh took some impressive interceptions as WD and offered to reset the ball on the transverse line. Defenders Madara and Hannah pressured the shooters so much that we only conceded two goals! Mya and Hannah got MVP voted by Exeter Cathedral school- well deserved.

The u13C team finished the term with a flourish on Wednesday playing extremely well and with impressive fluidity. Goals were aplenty and recognition should go to Nana who was fantastic! The team were supportive of each other and pleasingly, very supportive of their opposition. The team have really grown this term and work well as a unit; it was a very enjoyable end to a great term. The final score was 15-2 win.

Wellington school

A tough but close match against Wellington for the U12A Team. The girls worked really hard and had lots of successful moments in this final match! All contributed the 10 goals that were scored.

It was a good contest at Wellington for the U12B Netball Team. The score was not as tight as the space on the court, but once we delayed and got in front we showed great promise in possession. Feeding the circle became our biggest hurdle and Wellington pulled away to win 8-2.

The U12C played brilliantly in their last match of the season against Wellington, they worked hard throughout, creating great play down the court but struggled to get the ball into the circle to shoot. Well done to Erin and Elaine for winning the opposition’s player of the match with Erin’s continual interceptions in defence and Elaine’s ability to see and drive into space to receive a pass. Score 7-1 to Wellington.
