Student Achievements

Well done to Sophie Green who competed in a swimming gala last weekend. Sophie collected one silver medal and three gold medals in various events such as 50m freestyle & backstroke and 100m individual medley.

Well done to Lutzia Holburns who has been chosen to be part of the England Ice Hockey Girls U13 team and will be representing her country in Romania on 8th – 12th April.



Well done to the Year 10 netball team who won their league tournament against six other teams! This is a great achievement against many good teams.

The Year 7s played a very close game against a very good Ridgeway team, narrowly losing 18-10. The team has come a long way since the start of the year and should be proud of their performance. Well done.


Well done to the Year 11 football team for reaching the district semi-finals. Unfortunately the boys lost on penalties, such a cruel way to end their final game for Stanborough. Thank you boys for your commitment to the team during your time at Stanborough.

It was a successful week for both the Year 7 and Year 8 basketball teams. Year 7 performed brilliantly in their 56-12 win over Hertswood. All players performed brilliantly, but the player of the match was David Manon Jorge, scoring 8 baskets! Well done David!

The Year 8 team also won their match against Hertswood by 20 points to 12. This was another excellent
performance by the team led by player of the match Tapi Zonda who scored 6 baskets! Well done Tapi!


The Year 10 netball team played a very close match against Queenswood. The lead kept changing from one team to another, with the girls eventually losing to a very narrow 14-12 score.

Student Achievements

Congratulations to Nathan, Year 9, who was presented with an award from Saracens Hertfordshire Men’s Cricket League for being the leading bowler in the Regional Division B East.

Nathan, who plays for Hatfield Hyde Cricket Club, took an amazing 22 wickets (including 2 fivers) with an average of 10.73 last season.  This is quite an achievement in his first season in open age cricket as his opponents are typically adult players with many years of experience. Well done Nathan!

Congratulations to Jamie, Year 10, who has been invited to participate in the ProFutsal team who are heading off to the prestigious Costa Blanca Cup which takes place in Benidorm, Spain. Pro Futsal competes in the top division of the country at senior level so this is a great achievement, well done Jamie!

Archie, Year 9, recently took a tour to Mumbai, India, along with the rest of his Youth Chelsea FC team mates and we are pleased to say that they won the Premier League Tournament! Well done Archie!

It has been excellent to see so many students attending dance, basketball, athletics, table tennis and netball clubs this term. The extra-curricular timetable should be displayed on tutor boards so it is not too late to get involved!
