On Wednesday 22 May, Bede’s Senior School in Upper Dicker hosted the annual IAPS U11 Girls Cricket Tournament, with the Bede’s Prep A team declared the winners at the end of the afternoon.

Kellie Larkin, Coach at Bede’s Prep School, says, “Each game was very exciting, with outstanding batting, bowling and fielding shown by all players. The teams conducted themselves in a wonderfully sporting manner and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship. It was a lovely afternoon of cricket played in the sunshine and it was fantastic to see so many girls taking part in the sport. I look forward to next year!”

On Friday 24 May, Bede’s Senior School welcomed 30 teams from across the county for the U12 and U13 Sussex County Tennis Championships, with the Bede’s Prep Girls team once again lifting the trophy.

Jane Nash, Head of Tennis at Bede’s Prep, says, “Emily, Sofia, Ella and Romilly played some world-class tennis all the way though the rounds and shone in a brilliant final against Burgess Hill School for Girls. In the Boys event, the Bede's team – Jack, Miguel, Archie and Reha – played extremely well making it to the semi-finals, but missed a place in the final by just one point! Congratulations also to Rosie, who won the Individual Fair Play award.”
