Crickade Manor Prep hosts pre-season training for fellow Wishford schools

It was an exciting day yesterday, when we hosted the first Wishford Schools pre-season training session. Year 5, 6, 7 and 8 students were joined by boys and girls from our new sister schools, Heywood Prep in Corsham and Hatherop Castle near Cirencester for some rigorous training, and lots of fun. 

Netball for the girls involved a varied skill session in the sports hall and some mixed games outside, encouraging them think about a number of different aspects of Netball, from footwork to finding space. The boys took part in hockey training on the astro, focusing on stick skills and game play, and giving every student opportunity to develop before the season begins. 

Thank you to both schools for joining us. It was a wonderful opportunity for some extra pre-season preparation, and to get to know you all better. We look forward to seeing you at our fixtures soon!
