We have also been following the progress of ex pupil Kay Wilson is currently playing and scoring tries for England in the Women’s 6 Nations tournament.

Football mid-season review 2016/2017
With a busy March programme of fixtures approaching, our football teams are well placed to move up their leagues. Recent results have included:
Warwick 5-0 L
Warwick 2-7 W
Oxted 11-0 L
Beacon 6-7 W
Reigate School 1-1 D
Oxted 1-4 W
Oxted 3-5 W
Reigate 1-4 W
After a tough start to the season losing 5-0 against Warwick, the new Year 7 team has picked up a point against Reigate School, drawing 1-1 and is looking forward to a number of fixtures in March to conclude their season.
St Bede’s Year 8’s are currently unbeaten and on course to do well in the league. They have had 3 wins already this season, including a 7-2 win against Warwick before Christmas. In total they have scored 15 goals in 3 games and only conceded 4!
Our Year 9’s have had a tough start to the season and have a number of games still remaining. They lost their opening game of the season 11-0 to Oxted and are looking to have a positive end to the season in March.
St Bede’s Year 10’s are having another strong season building on their strong finish last year. They have currently beaten both Beacon and Oxted, scoring 12 goals in the process.
Since September we have only participated in three tournaments:
- Years 10 and 11 entered the 7-a-side District Girls' Football in which they won all their games. They are through to the next round which is on the Wednesday 26 April at Surrey Sports Park. The players who stood out during the tournament were Izzie King (10SA) and Victoria Seddon (10GI).
- Years 8 and 9 played in the 7-a-side District Girls' Football (played 02/03/17) in which they won 2 games and drew 1, resulting in them winning the competition. They again will go through to the next round.
- Year 10 competed for the first time in a Futsal competition which is a 5-a-side indoor competition with slightly different rules and a heavier football. This makes the game fast and furious. The girls had never played this style of football before and adapted quickly battling it out in some close games.
Our badminton players recently aquitted themselves well at the annual Surrey School Games competition held at the Guildford Spectrum.
Congratulations to KS4 Boys (Bagio Mathew, Aakash Rajan,Harry Cookson,
Tinu Thomas) who came fourth in an extremely strong competition.
Congratulations to the KS4 Girls who won Bronze medal (Ellen Loft, Amy Talbot, Mary Hallett, Rachel Moss)
Congratulations to the KS3 Boys who won Silver medal (Steve Kuriakose, Treshan Dias, John Joseph, Daniel Burke)
Congratulations to the KS3 Girls who won the Gold medal and now go on to represent Surrey in the South of England stage of the competition. (Sophie Jones, Lucy Hallett, Thea Baker, Rebecca Mote)
All of the students were complimented by the staff from Badminton England on their play and conduct throughout the day.
At the end of February, Years 7, 8 and 10 are in 1st place in the District league. Year 11 are 2nd, but with two fixtures not fulfilled, and Year 9 are third, which is the highest we have ever been placed!
