Sports Round-Up

On Monday the 13th of November Norfolk House School has the pleasure of hosting the ISA North London girls football tournament. This tournament has three divisions – Under 11, Under 10 and Under 9. Norfolk House will be entering teams in all age groups, and are putting our year 3’s into the under 9 category as well.

The tournament will run from 11am to 3pm at PowerLeague Barnet. With 12 schools entering the event promises to be a big and exciting one. There are twelve schools entering over the multiple divisions with over 150 girls playing. We will be taking the whole of Senior Prep to support after 1:30 (during their normal PE time) and would love to see some parental support as well.  I have included the schedule here.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the ladies at Friends of Norfolk House for all their hard work both in the run up to the event and for providing hot drinks and snacks during the event itself. If you or your child is attending please come over and buy yourself a hot drink or a snack.

Kind regards,

Andy Charman,

Director of Sport.


Year 2’s play on the big stage!

Remember, remember the 5th of November as that was the first time our year 2s played rugby at the Allianz Stadium - home of the European rugby champions Saracens. Mr Jowett and Mr Charman took 10 of Norfolk House’s finest to a rugby tournament on the pitch and stayed on to watch the Saracens V Harlequins match afterwards.

Our day started bright, sunny but cold with some excited and scared year 2’s. This was the first ever rugby matches played by most of our players and the nerves showed. We had tears before the very first game and players asking to be substitutes, but once the first whistle was blown we were off and into it.

The development of the players was truly immense, our defending, passing, game awareness, running with the ball and general positivity really shone through and by the end of the tournament we were playing some outstanding rugby. Almost everyone in the two teams scored at least one try with William Bell, Sebastian Chesney and Lois Naylor seemingly scoring whenever they wanted to.

After the games we met some of the star players like England number 8 Billy Vunipola and stayed on to watch the game. We were lucky to watch a really tight, exciting game with Harlequins winning with the very last play of the game!
