Netball is the main girls’ sport during the Spring Term. The club operates six senior teams, two U16 sides, ten junior teams and eight Lower School teams. The netball club regularly has 26 teams competing for the School in any one week.
In the Lent Term each team trains twice a week and participates in fixtures against other schools in Surrey, Central London, Hertfordshire, Sussex, Kent and Berkshire. St John’s teams often qualify for the final stages of the county competition and in 2017-18 the U19A VII and U13A VII sides both reached county finals. Across the age groups, we have girls representing their county, club and also the Surrey Storm NPL sides.
In the Autumn Term we run a number of trips; the U12 pupils travel to Shropshire on the JCA tour and the U19A and U16A compete in Loughborough and York. The senior tour takes place in November and is always exciting and enjoyable. The girls make the most of the opportunity to pit themselves against the Team Northumbria U19 NPL side and the 2018 U19 National Schools’ Champions, Queen Ethelburga’s College.
St John’s has a committed and highly talented group of coaches. All girls have the opportunity to represent the School in a competitive fixture at junior and senior level and we are proud of our ability to cater for both elite athletes and sport for all participants.
