Rosslyn Park National Schools 7s Tournament in London

Last week saw our U13 Boy’s Rugby team compete against some of the finest school rugby teams at the renowned Rosslyn Park National Schools 7s Tournament in London.

Across 11 competitions, over 1,000 schools from around the world took part in the five-day event, including teams from Dubai, New Zealand, Gibraltar and Kenya, with Penryn participating in the Junior Schools category.

One victory, two draws and two losses earned Penryn a very respectable fourth-place finish in the six-team group, as part of a trip that saw the players in the presence of former England men’s national team coach, Sir Clive Woodward, as well as other former and current professionals of the game.

And reflecting on the benefits of the school’s participation in the tournament, Mr Tucker said: “The tournament not only enhanced and developed the boys’ rugby skills, but also provided them with an opportunity to broaden their horizons and experience elite-level sport.

“This included watching the very impressive Harrow School defeat Brighton College in the Boy’s U18 Cup Final,” concluded Mr Tucker.


Year 7 and 8 Cornwall School Games Football Finals

Our Year 7 and 8 Cornwall School Games Football teams earned a fantastic third-place finish during this week’s competition, taking home bronze medals!

All teams, including Penryn, produced some great football and demonstrated brilliant sportsmanship throughout the event.

Well done, girls, and thank you to Active Cornwall, as always, for running such a fantastic competition!


U13 Basketball v Truro School (Away)

Our U13 Basketball team produced a fantastic win and performance against Truro School earlier this week.

It was perfect preparation for the team’s participation in the Jr. NBA Play-Offs – which they recently qualified for – along with our U12 side.

Well done, everyone!
