Published on 20/05/19

Teams from Thetford Academy had a field day at an inter-school girls’ rugby competition.

Twenty-six pupils from Year 9 and 10 took part in the under-15s seven-a-side tournament at Norwich Rugby Club on Wednesday, May 15.

They competed against schools including Wymondham High Academy, Wymondham College, Sprowston Community Academy, and Notre Dame High School in the fast-paced ‘cross pitch’ version of the sport.

PE teacher Katie Allcock said: “Our girls put in a fantastic performance, winning over half of their games against much more experienced players, many of whom play at club level.

“They did themselves and Thetford Academy proud.”
