On 7-8 February 2020, the GDST’s top hockey and netball players will be pitting themselves against some of the country’s elite teams in a special sporting event being held at Loughborough University.
The GDST’s select hockey and netball teams will take on Loughborough Lightning in two days of netball fixtures (both U17 and U19) and the hockey team will play against Repton School, currently the national champions, and Leicester Hockey Club.
The team were chosen after a fantastic day of training and competition on a special selection day in November last year. The Year 11 and Sixth Form girls selected to play come from a wide number of schools within the GDST family. The weekend of events has been organised by Alexis Williamson-Jones, Trust Consultant Teacher for Sport at the GDST, with the aim of promoting collaboration in sport across the trust, both for the staff and students.
