The football season for Year 6 came to a close with them reaching the Surrey County Cup Final in late April. They ended up playing the semi-final and final in the same week. In the semi final they played St. Stephen’s from Godstone in what was an excellent game of football. The match was finely poised until midway through the second half when James Howard scored a fantastic individual goal.  We then completed the win with a second goal by Arya Rajabali in the final few minutes. This meant that the team progressed to play Whitgift School in the County Finals.

This was again a fantastic match with great examples of attacking football.  Whitgift certainly showed their talent but the boys from Cleves matched this and came close to scoring through Sammy and Lewis.  Midway through the first half Nathan Jones saved a Whitgift penalty and then, with the match again finely poised, Sammy Burnley saw his header rebound off the upright.

The game went into extra time and unfortunately Whitgift grabbed the vital goal which saw them lift the cup. The boys were naturally disappointed but they had played so well  as a team and could be truly proud of their efforts. Well done to Nathan Jones, Sammy Burnley, Michael Hargate, Max Smith, Max Birtley, James Tenniswood, James Howard, Lewis Matton, Arya Rajabali, Keon Tsang, Zak Gollings, Joe Vaughan and Finlay Northage.

Congratulations to the year 6 netball team who reached second place in the large schools league table. The team have been a joy to coach and have developed both their netball and teamwork skills. I hope that they continue to play netball or basketball at Secondary School. Well done to Saffron, Max, James, Lina, Olivia, Freya, Jodie, Jack and Tegan.

Well done to our Year 3 Golfing Superstars. Douglas and Jamie Donaldson, Herbert Campbell, Thomas Park, Oliver Drew and Charlie Davidson attended the Tri-Golf Surrey School Competition, on the 29th April, competing against eleven other Surrey schools.  Due to their advanced golfing skills, determination and team spirit they won!  This is an incredible achievement as all other schools brought children from years 3 and 4 to play. We are all very proud of the boys and we look forward to what they can achieve at the Surrey county finals festival on 1st July.

Tag Rugby
Congratulations to the Year 6 Tag Rugby team (Imy V, Freya M, Emma M, Mia R, Emma M, Freya M, Zac G, Sammy B, Jack M, Nathan J, James H, Ben T, Alex L, Lewis M) who were outstanding, as a team, in this years County Tag Rugby Tournament. Continued  support from Mr Roberts and Ben F, Ben I and Max J helped the team put in magnificent games.

It was a tough tournament with 26 teams from across the County.  Our first match was against a school that had previously taken part in the Regional games so it was pleasing that we were able to surprise them with our brilliant teamwork and win that match. We continued to play against two other skilful teams and through supportive teamwork won through our group to play in the quarter finals. With warm smiles and determination we entered the  semi-finals!  

Despite injuries the team played well and were commended for their excellent teamwork by a Cobham Club coach and spectators.  It was a close,  nerve-wracking game with  some brilliant tries, determined defending and terrific teamwork.  Unfortunately,  success eluded Cleves as we lost to Cardinal Newman.  However, the team quickly re-focused and recharged themselves for one more game.

The final game of the day was tough as the team had to continue to be positive after defeat . They showed determination and good sportsmanship as they entered the last match.  Yippee! The team ended the day proudly receiving their medals for 3rd place.  

It has been a pleasure to see the team grow in skill and confidence but the best part was to see their teamwork develop.  Well done!

Year 3/4 Mini Red Tennis Tournament
On Wednesday 15th April Cleves took a team of 2 girls and 2 boys to take part in the Mini Red Tennis Tournament at Walton Tennis Club.  Alex Green, Ron Usharovsky, Zsofia Ungvari and Angela Barry represented Cleves and played as a team against several local schools.  They all competed well and persevered to win as many points as possible.  In the very hot conditions they thoroughly enjoyed the tennis and were delighted to play in a competitive and closely fought series of matches.  They were awarded a certificate at the end of the tournament and showed great sportsmanship by staying to watch the final match.  Congratulations Tennis Team!
