We have been impressed with the energy on campus this week as the Sports Department kick-started its year with a series of squad and team trials.

Trials have been held for British Schools Middle East (BSME) competition squads, with students from Years 8, 9 and 10 trialling to compete in the elite U15 BSME Games early next year. The girls took part in netball and football, whilst the boys participated in football and volleyball, with all students desperate to make the team. The U13 BSME Netball trial saw an excellent response from both Year 7 and Year 8 students. Prep School Sports trials have also been in full flow. These have included U11 Girls Football & U11 Boys Touch Rugby. There was a great turn out and it’s looking good for the season ahead.
