Well done, Lucy!
On Sunday 14th November Charlie (Year 11) represented Kent in the U16 mixed Water Polo team at the London Counties competition. Much like Swimming, London and the South-East is a fiercely competitive area for the sport. Charlie and his teammates did superbly well and came away with a bronze medal, narrowly losing out to Surrey (2nd) and Sussex (1st). Well done, Charlie!
This academic year is the first year that Emanuel has played Water Polo competitively outside of curriculum PE. We have mixed teams in U12 & U13 who train on a Thursday after school whilst our U14 & U16 teams train on a Tuesday after school. We have competitive matches organised against local schools and have entered national tournaments that will be played throughout the academic year.
