Super Saturdays

Among a number of new sporting initiatives introduced by director of sport, Justine Mackenzie, are ‘Super Saturdays’. These days see up to 20 St Swithun’s teams playing matches against other schools. This gives almost half of the girls at St Swithun’s the chance to represent the school at competitive sport. For example on the 14th January we had 10 lacrosse teams playing against Putney and then 13 lacrosse teams against Benenden all on the same day. Headmistress, Jane Gandee, says “As a sports enthusiast and headmistress of a girls’ school, I am determined that girls will see sport and exercise as a fundamental part of their lives by the time they leave us, whether this is performing to a national level, enjoying competitive sport or simply leading a healthy and active life. ”
