Congratulations to all the children who participated in Seaford College Prep School sports day. The weather was kind to us and all the competitors made a huge effort and showed wonderful team spirit. It was also a lovely opportunity to meet the new parents at the barbecue afterwards.
The Seaford College Prep School show jumping team of Emily Cook, Abigail Jupp and Lauren Goldsmith came a fantastic first last weekend in the 50cm inter-schools competition run by Copthorne Prep School.
“The girls and their ponies were brilliant and we have had a very fun and exciting day, also qualifying for the Grassroots National Championships,” said Lucy Sanders, Seaford’s Equestrian Team Manager. “A good day for Seaford Equestrian!”
Seaford College Prep School pupil Archie Law and his teammates in the Chiddingfold U11 football side have enjoyed a great run of success recently. They were victorious in the Beacon Hill Junior Football Club tournament, winning all their matches, and goalkeeper Archie even managed to score himself from a tremendous goal kick. The following weekend at the Farncombe YFC tournament, the team were again unbeaten in the qualifiers and went on to win the final.
Congratulations to Archie and the Chiddingfold U11 football team.
Just before Christmas, Year 7 pupil Beanie Bradley competed at the London International Horse Show at Olympia on her pony, Doune, in the Mini Major class. This was a relay competition for ‘mini riders’ aged 12 years and under on small ponies, who are paired with professional show jumpers to complete a course of show jumps against the clock, with the fastest pair winning.
Beanie’s partner was an Italian international show jumper, Emanuele Gaudiano. They both rode good rounds under the spotlights of the atmospheric Olympia arena to end up in seventh place. Being part of this world famous Christmas show was a fantastic experience for Beanie and her family.
