STUDENTS and staff at Prince Henry’s Grammar School are celebrating after a run of successes for the school’s sporting teams.

The school was recently named as one of the top 5% of state schools for sport in School Sports Magazine and offers a wide variety of sport to students.

The U12 Girl’s Netball Team won the Leeds School Sports Netball League, at the end of fiercely contested season.

The U12 Boys’ Rugby Team won the plate competition at St Peter’s 7s, beating several other teams to come out victorious.

Three of the school’s boys’ rugby teams are in the final of their age groups’ Yorkshire Cup. The U14 Boys’ Rugby Team beat South Hunsley 45-7, the U15s beat BBG Academy 22- 1 and the U16 rugby Team beat Harrogate Grammar School 22-10.

“We are really proud of everyone for these fantastic results. Over 400 students train in a variety of sports, including both boys’ and girls’ football and rugby, netball, badminton and more, and it’s great to see them having this success again.” Said Dave Curtis, Faculty Leader for PE.

Last year, the school was nominated for the best Sporting School in the Leeds Sport Awards.

And most recently, the school has been nominated for Sporting Achievement as a school for the breadth of extra-curricular provision in the Leeds Sports Awards this year.
