The Under-16 girls’ netball team were crowned East Devon Champions, and were one of only two comprehensive schools in Devon to make the county finals.

The Under-13 boys’ rugby team continued their success into the 2017-18 season, winning all six games and being crowned East Devon champions and have now not been beaten in over a year!

The Under-14 girls’ football team remain undefeated this current football season and they are looking forward to the next round of the East Devon Championship, which is being held in January.

The Under-14 boys’ indoor cricket team were crowned East Devon Champions while the Under-15s were runners-up and, as a result, both teams will play in the Devon county finals to be held in January.

The college is keen to give special thanks to Sidmouth resident Bill Valentine, a volunteer, who has been organising the running club every Monday as well as Devon RFU, who are coaching the girls’ rugby teams.

Sammy Omand, head of physical education at Sidmouth College, said: “The students continually achieve well in sports at Sidmouth and even though we are a smaller school, compared to others in the area, we compete at a high standard across a range of sports.

“Not only this, but many of the students have been selected as Sports Captains and have been leading and organising training sessions and events, demonstrating their leadership success as well.

“We look forward to the new term and the next age groups competing in the 2018 tournaments and competitions!”
