First Year - Second half of Autumn term

Dear All,

I hope that you have enjoyed the half-term break. I am writing ahead of term re-starting on Monday and with details of plans for Saturdays from now until Christmas.

Monday 1st November

The boys U12s are due to play Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School after school. The fixtures will be at Surbiton Hockey Club and will start at 4.30pm. ANY boys from A-E squads who would like to play are invited, as this would be within the normal after school training slot.

The girls will train at Old Cranleighans Hockey Club for this week. In future weeks, from the 8th onwards, they will train at Surbiton Hockey Club too.

The usual after school buses will be provided to each venue, so pupils should continue to register as they have been doing.

We have to move after school sessions, as we require floodlit pitches from now until the February half-term. Games sessions on Friday will remain at Ditton Field.

Saturdays

We would like to offer sport every Saturday for the first years, which takes a variety of forms. It will include some hockey fixtures for boys and girls, but there will also be football and netball sessions. We will do what we can to include as many pupils as possible. For any external fixtures, please check the sports website – www.sport.kgs.org.uk

If you have any questions about any of the fixtures or sessions below then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
