Round-Up of Sport

The sun has finally emerged for Cricket Quarter sport. Athletics pupils excel in their events while the Shooting teams shine in national competitions. 


The boys competed at Tonbridge on a cold and damp afternoon. Highlights of the day were: 

In the U15s Fiyi – 2nd 200m, Gabriel – 2nd 800m and 1st B team HJ, Max – 2nd HJ and Aidan  – 2nd shot put, Lukas – 1st B team 300m 

In the U17s George – 1st 100m, Oscar – 1st B team shot put, David – 1st B team 200m 

In the U19s Irese and Ryan won the A and B team HJ, Thomas – 2nd 100m, and the 4 x 100m were 2nd. 

Overall, we had our best ever performance - 4th place: the juniors tied with Tonbridge and the seniors beat Whitgift. 

The U16s competed at The Spectrum in a relays gala against RGS and Tormead. The top Charterhouse team won the girls' competition and came third in the boys’ competition. It was a great chance for all our U16s to compete, with some strong performances on the track in particular. 


The results from the National postal competitions we took part in last term are slowly coming in: 

The Cadet Council for Rifle Shooting .22 Competition (formerly the ‘Country Life’): 

We shot this at the end of last term with a regular Army member of Staff present as a witness, due to illness and exams we had to call forward reserves 3 times until we could make a complete 1st Team, and this left the 2nd Team depleted. 

The 1st Team were equal first after the grouping stage, after the Rapid stage, and were the top school after the Snap shoot, our nemesis proved to be the Landscape Target yet again where we lost points on one objective meaning we came second overall (by only 5 points!) and have received some nice CCRS Silver medals for our efforts.... there is always next year. The Team Leader Henry  did a fantastic job, Hermoine was the top shot in the Country and Freddie, Henry and Loius all appeared on the Top Individual score sheet. Alasdair made short work of his objective on the Landscape Target an exceptionally good effort, this being the first time he has ever taken part in this Competition. The 2nd Team were left with only 2 members (they needed 5!) but in the spirit of competition and never say die Alfie and Ayah took part in the first three stages only and managed to come 32nd beating 5 other Shooting Teams who had a full complement!  

We also did very well in the British schools Spring Leagues. There were 85 Teams from 23 Schools taking part and two of our teams won their divisions: 

Section 1: ten Bull Targets (Difficult!) Div 5 

Charterhouse B : Alasdair, Charlotte, Xander, Alfie, and Louis

Section 2 (five bull targets) Div 4 

Charterhouse C: Dylan, Charlotte, Xander, Loius. 

This is the first time for a long while that we a have had Division Winners badges awarded to three pupils in two different categories. 

We are currently shooting the British Schools Summer Leagues and training at Bisley for the School meeting and NRA Imperial.
