This week, pupils have been competing in rugby and athletics.
Year 8 Rugby
After being crowned this year’s Champions Cup winners, the Year 8 rugby team tested their luck in the London Youth Games competing against 33 other schools. St Thomas More did very well in the group stage beating Seven Kings 32-10 and Bishopshault Secondary 32-4. After progressing through the group stage, the team completed a remarkable victory against Kingsford 32-16. The next bout against Harris Academy Croydon was more competitive as the boys’ team won marginally 20-18. St Thomas More crashed out against Langley Park in Bromley losing their first game of the season and ended up finishing 5th in London. A fantastic achievement for the boys as they are amongst the top 5 schools in the capital.
Year 8 - Middlesex Cup Athletics
After the Year 7 and 8 boys’ and girls’ teams were crowned outdoor champions of Haringey, they were put through to the Middlesex Cup finals. All teams finished in the top 3 in Middlesex after spending the whole day at The Alliance
Park Stadium. The year 7 boys’ finished 3rd in Middlesex and the girls’ finished 2nd. The Year 8 boys’ and girls’ teams finished a step ahead and were both crowned Middlesex Champions on the day. The most memorable performances were from Olamide Adeosun and Guynelle Amatcha (Year 8) in the 100m sprint and 75m hurdles.
