Netball superstars

Wolverhampton Girls’ High School U16 netball team participated in the National Schools Netball competition for the first time in the school’s history on Saturday 16 March at London’s Stanborough School.

The team began by qualifying for the regional finals as overall winners from the County Schools competition back in November, as they won all their games and scored an impressive total 128 goals. The regional finals took place in Telford at the end of January where the students were up against some very tough competition. They came top of their section and made it through to the final against Kings School Worcester, finishing as runners-up overall. They were the only state school in the West Midlands to qualify for the nationals, and they were rewarded by sponsorship from Paycare for a new kit.

Head Mrs Young says, “These students are totally dedicated to the sport, playing for clubs outside of school in addition to the commitment they make in school time and we’re extremely proud of what they have achieved… and they looked fabulous in their new kit!”
