On Thursday 10th November the Year 5 travelled to Ravenscourt Park to play in a netball tournament against seven other schools. For some pupils this was the first time they had ever participated in a tournament. There were 3 different competitions: the Championship, the Shield and, the Plate. Notting Hill Prep took four teams; entering two teams into the Plate competition which meant NHP Storm and NHP Stars played each other in a close-fought game.
The pupils had the opportunity to practice their versatility throughout the afternoon by playing a variety of different positions on the court. Even under the pressure of a tournament, they took this in their stride and demonstrated great determination and resilience. We came away with a bronze medal in the Plate competition and a silver medal in the Shield competition.
Overall, it was a fantastic afternoon of netball for all of the Year 5 pupils involved. They should all be very proud, well done!Read More
Last Friday we invited 15 other schools to Chiswick Rugby Club to take part in our own Year 3 football tournament. It was a fantastic afternoon with some excellent play on display. NHP finished 3rd in the Plate tournament beating Norland Place 2-0 in their final game. Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to Latymer Prep who won the overall trophy.
A huge thank you to our Year 8 children who helped support the tournament by refereeing, scoring, timekeeping and being general superstars. They were fantastic ambassadors for the school.Read More
NHP were on great form at the Fulham School ‘B’ team tournaments on Saturday 1st October. The Year 6 team had a slow start in the first two games, with narrow defeats against Kings College and Thomas’s Fulham. They regrouped to draw 1-1 with Fulham School and then had their best performance to beat Thomas’s Clapham 3-1 in the final game, finishing third overall. Alexander B was the player of the tournament, finishing as top scorer with 5 goals.
The Year 5 team went even further with some excellent performances throughout. A 1-0 win against Kings College after a breakaway goal saw them kick off the tournament in great style. Further 1-0 wins followed against Thomas’s Fulham and Fulham School C. A goalless draw against Fulham School B’s prevented a clean sweep but NHP still topped the table to win the tournament and achieve the first medals of the season. Players of the tournament were Horatio S and Agnes F. Well done to everybody involved in both tournaments.Read More
To kick off the football season we entered the Orchard House tournaments.
The Year 6 team were impressive throughout the whole afternoon. Despite the heavy rain, they were able to play a great brand of football which only saw them concede one goal throughout. They were deservedly crowned champions, topping the league with 12 points out of a maximum 15. Player of the tournament was Kai S who was deadly in front of goal, topping the scoring charts.
The Year 5 team followed on from the Year 6s with some excellent performances. They also only conceded one goal throughout the tournament finishing second behind Latymer Prep after 3 wins, 1 draw and a loss. Whilst our results were impressive for our first outing of the season, we were even more delighted with the camaraderie, sportsmanship and dedication of our NHP teams. The Year 5 player of the tournament was Giacomo J-K for his excellent pressing and carrying of the ball from midfield.
Well done to everyone involved, you were all great representatives of NHP.
