Great performance by our Year 7s in the first round of the U12s County Cup on Monday, winning 9-1 against Grange Academy. This was the first time the girls had played a competitive match together and they performed brilliantly as a team.

Well done to all the girls, some great performances all over the pitch. PoTM was Ella Reynolds. Looking forward to the next round.


National Schools Cup – 3rd Round

Dominant performance from our U14s football team on Wednesday 8th against Woodlands School. The girls won 5-1 to go through to the 4th round of the National Schools Cup.

The girls created a huge amount of chances with our goal rarely threatened, but then found ourselves 0-1 behind from a breakaway goal. A tremendous effort from Keira Gale levelled the game and we entered the half time break at 1-1. Luckily the girls were more clinical in the second half scoring 4 times without reply. Two from Liv White and two from Mia Schillaci-Rowland. The second goal from Liv was the pick of the bunch where she slalomed around 4 players before calmly slotting the ball into the corner.

The girls showed great attitude and 100% commitment throughout. Our defence was particularly impressive, remaining calm in all situations and playing the ball out of danger areas confidently. Player of the Match, as voted by the girls themselves was Liv White. Coaches Player of the Match was Amy Little. Well done to all the girls for a fantastic win.

National Schools Cup – 4th Round

Definitely one of the best performances from our U14s football team winning 11-0 against Appleton School. This means we now enter the final 32 of the National Schools Cup.

The girls started brightly, creating several chances and soon opened the scoring. Lots of little interchanges, great wing play, passing triangles and one-twos made it a joy to watch.

At half time, Presdales led 7-0 and it could have been a lot more. Appleton asked to shorten the second half to 20mins. Presdales scored a further 4 goals to win 11-0. Hat-trick from Mia SR and 4 from Liv W.

Great work girls, onward to Round 5! The entire team played brilliantly. Appleton School was very complimentary and extremely gracious in defeat. You were all star players!


What a day!!!!!!  We headed off to Ipswich on Friday 10th for the next round of the U14 National Hockey Championships. We played some amazing games in the first round, winning 5 and drawing one to put us top of our group! We had Stephen Perce in the final. Once again, they stepped on the pitch and worked the ball around the opposition and into the back of the net twice to give us a 2-0 lead… Perse got one back with 2 minutes to go….. but it wasn’t enough…. finishing 2-1 with Presdales being crowned U14 Regional Champions!!! They go through to the Nationals in February!! Well done girls, it has been a fab day with you all, you have made the PE department incredibly proud!! Star Player was Olivia Holme!

On Thursday 16th November, Mrs Bowden got to spend the afternoon with this group of amazing girls! They have been having Rugby training on a Friday lunch with @juniorsharksrugby @hertsrfu. And on Thursday they played their first contact Rugby tournament at Hertford Rugby club! A few nerves at the beginning and lots of them wanting to start as sub so they could see what it was like, and then the games begin and I can’t keep them off!! Some great team morale on pitch, runs, tackles and tries….we came away winning every game!!!! Opposition included The Nobel School, Hockerill and Birchwood/Priory. Well done girls! You were amazing! Thank you to Herts Rugby!!!





Fantastic performance by the U16s Tennis team last Friday who won 5 out of their 6 matches against St Edmund’s College to qualify for the County Final! The girls played some wonderful tennis and were deserved winners against a strong St Eds team. Presdales will now face St Albans High in the Final. Well done girls!
