Staff and students are celebrating an extraordinary term, in which students won an incredible 3 rugby trophies, 4 netball leagues and the PE provision was highly commended at the Leeds Sports Awards.
The run began with a commanding performance from the U15 Boys’ Rugby Team in the RFU National Bowl Final, winning 45-14 against St Peter’s High School. The match was played at the Saracen’s premiership ground in London. The team played brilliantly from the start, leading by 40 points to nil at half time.
The U18 Boy’s Rugby First XV won the Yorkshire Cup final at West Park RUFC, beating Ripon Grammar 29 to 22 in a hard fought match.
Then, in a first for the school, the U16 Girls Rugby Team, playing in partnership with Harrogate Grammar School, won their Yorkshire Cup Final against Whitcliffe 41 to 5.
Meanwhile, our netball teams won the Leeds School Netball Association leagues in the U12 Area 1, U13 Division 1, U14 Division 1, the U15 Division 1, while the U13 Team made it to the quarter finals of the National Cup.
Finally, the PE provision at Prince Henry’s was recognised for its breadth and depth of opportunity at the Leeds Sports Awards, coming highly commended in the inaugural Active School Award.
“This has been an absolutely amazing time for sport at Prince Henry’s.” said Dave Curtis, PE Faculty Leader. “The students have displayed amazing talent and determination. We did not expect to win these trophies so convincingly – and it’s great to see that commitment and hard work from the students really paid off for them. We couldn’t give the students these opportunities without support from colleagues across the school, parents and carers and the volunteers who coach with us at school – and it was lovely for that to be recognised at the Leeds Sports Awards as well. This term really has been the stuff of dreams!”
