U11 and U 9 Summer Term Fixtures
We are all looking forward to a busy term of sport and hopefully seasonable weather to accompany it.
As you are aware, cricket and rounders matches tend to last longer than other sports fixtures and therefore pupils attending away matches will generally not be back in school until after 5.00pm. The exact return time will depend on the location of the fixture. The PE staff will do their best to give an estimated time of arrival back at Stover on the team sheets each week.
Parents of pupils who catch the bus are asked to please arrange collection on days when their child is representing the school in an away match. We shall be happy to email bus riders as soon as the team sheet is published so they are aware of the situation and estimated time of arrival.
Stover School is now offering Day Boarding and Evening Stay Over opportunities. (Please see attached). If you wish your child to take advantage of any of these please do get in touch with us. It might be that you would like your child to stay until 7.00pm on match days, for example.
This term we also have two weekend Athletics fixtures. Whilst we have yet to select teams for these events they might be important dates for your diary. They are as follows:
Sunday 12th May Kings College, Taunton - Athletics Festival
Sunday 16th June Kelly College, The Kelly Trophies - Athletics Meeting
We thank you for the support you provide your child at our sports events and look forward to welcoming you to our home fixtures, sports day and house matches this term.
With best wishes
Head of Stover Preparatory School.
