Cirencester Kingshill School celebrates their Super Sevens
As a Specialist Sports College, Cirencester Kingshill School are used to celebrating the many sporting successes of their pupils but the current year 7 pupils have exceeded all expectations.
They have won a total of five district school sports competitions and were runners up in two other district finals and two county finals. An outstanding achievement.
In September 2016, the cross country team started the year off on a high by winning the Schools Team relay. A first for Kingshill School.
This was followed in November 2016 by both the Rugby A and B Teams winning their District Festivals. Impressively both teams were undefeated for the whole tournament. Team A triumphed in the finals to become District Rugby Champions.
Following a successful run of results in the English Schools FA Cup, the Football Team then won the district schools final in March 2017, to become District Football Champions.
In June 2017, our Year 7 boys had a whole team athletics win beating 9 other schools at the District Team Athletics Match finishing first in the 100 metres, 200 metres, 800 metres, High Jump and Relay Race. They also achieved 2nd in the 1500 metres and Long Jump and 3rd in the Javelin.
In July 2017, the girls Tennis doubles pairing of Isabella Sheikh and Georgina MacMicheal came runners up in the District Tennis Tournament, a feat shared by the Boys Cricket team who lost by the smallest of margins in the District Cricket Final.
They have also enjoyed success at county level. Bo Long claimed four gold medals at the Gloucestershire County Athletics Championships in May 2017 coming first in the 75 metre hurdle, 100 metres, 200 metres and High Jump. Both the Football Team in April 2017 and Cricket Team in July 2017 took second place and became runners up in their respective County Finals.
Mr Hamblin, Head of Physical Education said “This has been an incredible year for our Year 7 sports teams. I cannot recall a group of pupils who have been so successful in such a range of sports when representing the school.”
Christine Oates, the Headteacher, said “What they have achieved is phenomenal. I am proud of each and every one of them for taking part and giving their all. I look forward to seeing what else they can achieve throughout their time at Kingshill School.”
