Our girls under 16 team went to the Leicestershire championships on Thursday 29th November. We were able to represent north Charnwood at these county championships due to winning the Charnwood championships back in September!
We lost to Leicester Grammar and Manor School but then beat Crown Hills and South Charnwood. These results meant we finished 3rd overall, our highest ever finish at these championships!
Our basketball teams have been taking part in the North Charnwood tournaments, all held at Rawlins Academy.
All of our teams have played really well and in some cases come up against really tough opponents. Most importantly, our students have been really respectful and positive and as a result have represented our school well.
