Netball at King Edward’s is available to all girls, with many year groups offering teams from A to C level and with up to six teams from Years 11 to 13. There is a real pride and passion to perform, but alongside this there is a determination to train hard, to work as a team and to give it your best. It has been an exciting journey to develop KES Netball at a local, regional and national level, to the extent that King Edward's is now recognised as one of the strongest netball schools in the country.
For the 2015-16 season, we are are county champions at U16 and U19 level and were proud to have all three age groups represented at the Regional Schools Competition (U14, 16, U19). In the last nine netball seasons 15 teams have qualified for the regional round of the competition, demonstrating the depth of talent throughout the School.
We have strong links with Team Bath Netball, from performance to participation level, and we sponsor Team Bath Super League matches. The Team Bath squad currently includes one former pupil, Jazz Scott, who is also a full-time member of the PE department, following completion of her degree at the University of Bath. The School is also noted for its outreach programme with local primary schools, organising weekly coaching sessions, one off skill days and holiday coaching camps.
Within school, the pupils benefit from King Edward’s hosting U11, U12, U13 and U16 tournaments, alongside an U19 pre-season tournament for local schools, with elite players providing technical and tactical support. An annual highlight continues to be our Mothers’ and Daughters’ Tournament that has been running for ten years and sees over 100 girls and their mothers participating.
