Haileybury's Under 12 swimming team proved far superior to their counterparts at Bishops Stortford Junior School during an inter-school competition last Tuesday.

We narrowly lost the Under 13 competition. Well done to everyone who took part.

Haileybury's Under 16 netball girls had an historic win over their Broxbourne rivals last Tuesday - this being the first time any Haileybury team has ever beaten Broxbourne in a full length match.

Stunning defence, flowing centre court play and sharp shooting - a real team performance to be proud of! Well done to the squad, comprising: Andrianna Dyer, Louisa
