Regional Hockey Finalists!
Congratulations to the U13 Hockey team who qualified for the North West Round of the National Schools Tournament. They played some excellent Hockey throughout the day and kept their calm during penalty flicks to go through to the final, where we finished runners up on the day. Well done girls, a fantastic achievement!
Withington Lacrosse teams have had an excellent season with the highlight being the Senior Team finishing top 16 in the UK at the National Schools Tournament.
