Netball is a major sport at King’s played predominantly in the Spring Term with training, preparation and some League fixtures taking place in the Autumn Term. We offer extra-curricular practices for all age groups and abilities and have a competitive fixture list for Wednesday (seniors) and Saturday games (all other years). We regularly enter County and National School competitions for every age group as well as competing in invitational tournaments.
Highly qualified coaches and specialist PE staff are committed to ensuring that all girls are given opportunity to play netball as a key curriculum subject especially in Years 7-9 where it is taught to everyone in games lessons.
Individual success is important to us too and talented individuals are occasionally promoted to play with older girls to encourage their personal development. This year 7 girls were selected for the County Squads and four girls played at Regional level last year.
King’s boasts 8 brand new full size courts enabling several teams to train at the same time and to allow for multiples of teams to play in our regular Saturday and midweek fixtures.
We regularly embark on overseas tours to enrich the sporting experiences of pupils at King’s. In April 2016 we took years 8-10 to Spain and Gibraltar and years 10-13 to Barbados in 2014. In preparation for both tours, pupils underwent a strength and conditioning program to ensure their level of fitness was a match for the hot conditions that were faced at both locations. The tours were a great cultural experience combined with competitive fixtures against clubs and schools abroad.
