Year Two enjoyed a fabulous afternoon of hockey when Dean Close hosted friendly matches on the new astros with pupils from Cheltenham College. The afternoon consisted of four games and every pupil took part in each mini-match. The children had a fantastic time and especially enjoyed being able to take part in a new match every 15 minutes.

There was a wonderful atmosphere with support from lots of parents from both schools, all excited to see the high skill level already demonstrated by the children at such a young age. Staff, parents, friends and family were also very impressed with the children’s sportsmanship and friendly competitiveness! Afterwards, everyone enjoyed a delicious match tea in the Senior School dining-room. Thank you to all the parents who supported and special thanks to Mr Sutherland and his team for organising such a super event.
