Netball is the main girls sport in the Lent Term but is additionally offered as an activity in the Autumn Term, alongside a pre-season programme to prepare the girls for the start of the season.
The school has six outdoor courts, and one full size indoor court. The all-weather outdoor courts allow for all teams to play at the same time but also enable the school to host a tournament in conjunction with the prestigious Ampleforth Invitational Sevens.
Teams are run by dedicated and experienced staff, and students regularly benefit from specialist Sports Development and Strength and Conditioning sessions. The school has ten competitive teams, run over all age groups (1st VII, 2nd VII, 3rd VII, 15 A/B, 14 A/B). A full fixture programme is run with matches keenly contested by all age groups each Saturday and occasionally mid-week. House matches are also a key feature of the Netball Calendar.
The talent shown within all age groups is exceptional, ranging from those who have never played before to girls who look to represent A teams in the next term. Combining both the juniors and seniors has given the girls a great opportunity to lead groups and also learn from older players. Coaching is available for girls of all standards via our team of highly qualified staff, and we encourage all players to enjoy the game to the best of their ability.
