Sporting Success

Our community has been celebrating the sporting achievements of a number of our students which include medal victories, national call-ups and international championships.

17-year-old Josephus who was in action in the Masters bowling tournament has been selected for the Junior Team England Squad.  Josephus ranks in the top-six under-18 male bowlers in the country and now awaits the decision as to whether he will represent England in the 4 man squad at the European Youth Championships in Denmark next year.

Peter, aged 16, will form part of the trampoline team that will represent Great Britain at the World Age Group Competitions in Sofia, Bulgaria later this month.  Having qualified second for the Louie World Cup in P{Portugal earlier this year, Peter is not short of confidence.

Further success in trampoline has also been enjoyed by brothers Nathan and Ethan, aged 13 and 14 respectively, alongside Braden, 13. They won synchro gold at the National Trampoline League, qualifying them for the Final in December being staged at the Velodrome, Olympic Park.  The brothers also won bronze in their age group regional synchro final and were presented their Medals by Olympic silver medalist Bryony Page.

Andrew Nanson, Head of PE said:

We are all proud and impressed with our students who have thrived in a sporting environment and achieved great things in a range of competitions.  Their success is a testament to the hard work and dedication they have consistently shown and their ability to stay focused.  At Holcombe Grammar School we pride ourselves on both academic and extra-curricular achievement and look forward to celebrating many more successes on both fronts in the years ahead.
