Increased Participation Leads to more sporting success

With forty teams regularly competing in weekend inter-school competitions, multiple sports teams enjoying Cup runs and a number of pupils receiving international and regional call-ups, Bradfield’s sporting teams and individuals have continued to achieve success in the first term of the academic year.

The boys’ 1stXI have enjoyed a strong season so far on the football pitch, beginning their campaign by reaching the semi-finals of the ISFA Sixes competition. Having managed to keep a clean sheet in every match, they lost out on a place in the final on penalties. However, not to be disheartened by the defeat, the boys have continued their fine form in the HUDL League, where they currently occupy top spot, and the Boodles ISFA Cup, in which they have reached the quarter-finals, due to be played on 24 January.

The girls’ 1stXI also enjoyed a Cup run, reaching the round of 16 following victories over St Clare’s, Oxford and Gordon’s School. They were eventually knocked out by a strong Millfield side but have enjoyed a promising season to date. The highlight of this term for girls’ hockey has undoubtedly been the U16’s appearance in the National Indoor Finals at Repton. Competing against the top schools in the country was always going to be tough, but the girls acquitted themselves superbly. 

On the back of two outstanding years of achievement, our target rifle shooters have once again begun this year with success, winning the Wiltshire Regimental Cup and the Hicks, Suffield-Jones Cup while six cadets are up for national team shooting selection.
