Our Tag Rugby Team, coached by Paul Burke and our very own Mr Watson, beat 52 schools in Hounslow to become first in the Borough, and secured us a place at the London Youth Games in Crystal Palace - our first time playing in a London-wide competition. Our team played well against representatives from all the other boroughs in Hounslow, to come second overall. We're very proud of all the hard work that our players have put in to practise, compete and achieve so much!
Lutalo Muhammad gave a talk at the opening ceremony of the London Youth Games. He is an Olympic bronze medalist from 2012 and Olympic silver medalist from 2016 in Taekwondo.
The photos of our rugby team receiving their silver medals are with ex England Rugby League captain Kevin Sinfield. He also captained Leeds Rhinos and the only captain to lead a team to three successive Super Leagues. He was runner up in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2015.
