The King's School has been crowned one of England's top rugby sevens schools winning the overall championship at the national Warwick Sevens.

The Macclesfield young men competed in all five age groups from under 12s up to under 16s, against the cream of young English rugby talent including sides from top sports academy Millfield, winning the under-15 event, reaching the final in the under-13 event and winning the Plate at under-14 level

When all the wins, losses and points aggregates were totted up from the five age groups, King's were named as the top school and will as always will be one of the teams to beat in all the forthcoming prestigious end of season national tournaments.

The under-15 final saw King's take on a hard-working Wimbledon College team, with flying centre Will Fosbrook darting through the cover at the death to steal the win 26 – 22. Throughout the tournament Captain Sam Higginson had shone with a display of strength and leadership.

King's Director of Rugby Guy Mason said: “We have got a lot of very good coaches lower down the school who embed sevens trechnique into their practice sessions so keeping good depth and minimising contact come as second nature.”

The King's Rugby First team squad have lifted the county sevens title with a powerful display against the cream of the Wheatsheaf sides at St. Ambrose College.

King's won in impressive fashion beating King William's, Lymm HS, Calday and then Bishop Heber School 35 – 5 in a what turned into a rout.

King's scored 142 points and conceded only five all day and were by far and away the best team on display. Fluid centre Cameron Redpath, rapier scrum half Will Hodgson and high velocity winger Kieran McKeever all excelled, though “as always in sevens,” said King's Director of Rugby Guy Mason, “it was a squad performance. You are only ever as strong as your weakest link and we had strength in depth.”

Guy continued:: “We have a talented group of young rugby players with the full set of running and handling skills needed to shine at sevens who have been moulded by our own sevens tactician, ex Macclesfield first team stalwart Paul Bartle.”

On Wednesday 28th September we welcomed 16 girls and 2 staff members to Cumberland Street all the way from Kinross Wolaroi School in New South Wales Australia. The King’s girls arrived back from a National Schools Tournament to meet the group, all of whom were hosted by 7 of the King’s players for 2 nights. Going by the Australian reactions on the groupings of the girls and allocations of hosts they were extremely delighted. On Thursday the hosts dropped their billets off at school where they then went on to spend the day in Chester shopping and looking at the ruins. At 4.30pm the King’s senior team played a fixture at the Cumberland Street astroturf against the touring side. This was an exciting game to watch and both teams displayed some great hockey, with Kings clinching a 6-3 win. Post-match, Allana Buckingham (Senior Hockey Captain) exchanged memorabilia with the opposition and thanked them all for such a wonderful experience. It was evident that some amazing life-long friends have been made in such a short time and I’m sure they will all be missed by the King’s girls. Both the Kinross and King’s pupils were an absolute credit to their schools. 

Thank you to the King's families that hosted the girls, it is very much appreciated by the school and of course the opposition and it couldn't have happened without you. 

We wish Kinross Wolaroi School all the best for their remaining time in the UK and a safe journey back to the land of Oz.

Recent Netball Successes

Girls attended several gruelling training sessions with Cheshire County Netball as part of an extensive trial programme. During this time they are given Strength and Conditioning sessions, drills and skills practices and of course match play.

If successful the girls either earn their place into the county squad or into a POD which acts as a development programme, where county coaches can keep an eye on their progress.

The following girls made it through:

Year 7- Maddie Johnson- County U12

Year 8- Izzy Moores- U14 POD

Year 9-Suzie Moores- U14 POD

Year 12- Antonia Bianchi-U19 County

We wish these girls every success in their netball future and we will continue to work with those that were unsuccessful to get them ready for next year.
