From Year 3 upwards, your child will be involved in fixtures against other schools, both home and away. These fixtures are published in the termly school calendar and on the website. Most fixtures are on Wednesdays though certain regional and national tournaments we enter may be on other days and occasionally at weekends, particularly if they are hosted by senior schools. Parental support is strongly encouraged.
Team lists can be viewed by clicking on the calendar entry on the website. Paper copies can also be found on noticeboard outside the Pavilion opposite the swimming pool entrance. All team sheets have the postcode of the venue in case you would like to support and also the anticipated return time to school in case you are unable to attend.
Kit for school matches is provided (and washed) by the school. If it is an away match, your child will need their red bag to carry their kit and towel in. They should also be wearing their blue slip-over and school blazer. The only exception to this is if the school we are travelling to has no changing facilities and so the children need to change before leaving. If this is necessary, it is indicated on the team sheet.
'A' teams are selected purely on merit. All other teams are selected to ensure that every child gets a reasonable number of opportunities each term to represent the school. All children from Year 3 upwards will also be involved in set matches each term.
After home matches, your child should stay for match tea, eating, and more importantly, socialising with the opposition. Tea for parents is provided in the school pavilion. Home matches, unless otherwise indicated, start at 2.30 and your child should normally be able to go home at 4.15. The only exception to this is cricket for Year 5 upwards when matches can take considerably longer.
Pupils travel to and from away matches by mini-bus. Parents may collect from the away venue however all players are expected to attend match teas. An approximate return time will be give on the website.
