This week saw St Thomas More School crowned champions in basketball and volleyball.
Hubert’s continued excellent performances for Arsenal have captured the attention of the England national coaches once again. Hubert has been invited to St George’s Park, the home of the FA, to partake in a two day ‘England Men’s Goalkeeping Development Event’. This is a huge honour, which both Hubert and the School are extremely proud of. We wish him the very best of luck next week!
