Boys in the lower years of the School have been performing strongly on the cricket field this term.

At time of writing the U12 and U13 teams have reached the final stage of the Middlesex Cup, with the U12s remaining unbeaten this season after ten Saturday fixtures against ten different schools. “Two boys, Daniel Green, Year 12, and Neil Gujar, Year 8, have scored a century each in a school fixture, which is a significant achievement,” said Head of Games Mark Peplow.

In athletics, Barnet Athletics League and Barnet Championships provide the main focus for QE boys.

“We have continued to perform well across the year groups, although Year 7 have struggled to maintain our usual dominance,” said Mr Peplow.

Twenty-five boys were selected to represent Barnet in the Middlesex Championships. A number were then placed in their finals and are currently waiting to hear if they have been selected to represent Middlesex at the All England Championships.
