Cross Country

The Tuesday before half term saw the annual running of the Bringsty Relays on Wimbledon Common, although this year the race was run over a new course due to the adverse conditions underfoot.  In the overall team event, it was Rigaud’s (1:27:43) who took the title by some two and a half minutes, ahead of Busby’s (1:30:19) in second, with Dryden’s (1:31:38) in third.  Rigaud’s also won both the Girls’ (ahead of Dryden’s and College) and Junior Boys’ (in front of Busby’s and Dryden’s) sections, whilst Purcell’s took the Senior Boys’ event, with Grant’s second and Busby’s third.  Individually, Toby (MM, 6:02) ran the fastest time of the day, ahead of Grantites, Thomas (6:11) and Kit (6:24), and, in the Juniors, Kelvin (AHH, 6: 46) was quickest, just ahead of Alex (BB, 6:51).  Bryony (BB, 7:49) recorded the fastest girls time, ahead of Isabella (DD, 8:35) and Sophie (WW, 9:13).


Tuesday saw also a Westminster team play two exciting and closely-contested Netball matches in the Sports Centre against sides from Francis Holland School.  First up, the FHS A side were the opposition in a see-saw battle which finished with Westminster just coming up short by the closest possible margin in a 14-15 defeat.  This was followed by a match against the FHS Development side where there was not much to choose between the sides once again.  However, this time it was the Westminster team who came out on top by 19-13.


Alas, the London Independent Schools’ Cup dream died for the 1st XI just before half term, as they went out of the competition at the quarter-final stage, away to Hampton School.  Having taken the lead through Ben, AKA ‘Captain Marvel’ , Westminster were pegged back to 1-1 at the end of normal time. Each side scored again in extra-time to make it 2-2, and take the game to penalties. Unfortunately, the 1st XI couldn’t quite repeat the heroics of previous penalty shootouts earlier this season, as they lost out by 2-3.

A positive way to end an extraordinary term and academic year with a range of Station activities at Vincent Square. Athletics, Cricket, Pilates & Tennis all taking place simultaneously – socially distanced, of course. Fingers crossed for normal service to resume in September 🤞

Some great efforts by our J14 boys over the weekend in the British Virtual Rowing Champs. In the ‘A’ Final, Oliver came 4th, just ahead of Tim in 5th with Theo 12th, Patrick 13th, Thomas 14th, Deniz 15th & Ryder 17th. In the ‘B’ Final, Lucas finished 3rd with Kristof 5th.

Sport is back at Vincent Square! Station sessions this evening in Cricket, Tennis, Gym Fitness & Body Flow (a mix of Tai Chi, Pilates & Yoga). Great weather to welcome back some socially-distanced Year 12 pupils – and more to come on Thursday.
