The boys came 3rd in their group competition and made it through to the city finals at Sussex Country cricket ground.

Hove and Portslade Netball tournament- Wednesday 5 April 2017

The girls had to choose between the netball and the swimming and as a team they chose the netball tournament. The team had worked hard all year and made such improvements in their skills and style of play. We had a challenging pool of schools to play but the girls built up to a great win at the end and finished their year off in style.
