Sporting transition at King’s Hawford

There was great excitement amongst our Year 5 cohort as they welcomed their peers from King’s St Alban’s on the afternoon of Friday 22nd April for a joint sporting transition afternoon. This was the first of a series of Year 5 transition events that will take place at the start of each term.
It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, during which the children benefitted from cricket and athletics masterclasses delivered by Mr Mason (Director of Foundation Sport), Mrs Miller-Symonds (Director of Sport) and Mr Greenall (Director of Cricket)  from the Senior School sports department. The Year 5 children really enjoyed getting to know other teachers from within the Foundation, as well as building stronger friendships with the Year 5 pupils from King’s St Alban’s.
Supporting the event, it was also lovely to welcome back former King’s Hawford pupils, and current King’s School Worcester pupils, Will M, Tilly C and Cameron J as part of the coaching team.
Commenting on the afternoon, Mr Mason added, “It was fantastic to be able to work with such enthusiastic and talent pupils. This was also a great opportunity for our senior pupils to pass on the skills they have gained in their time at King’s.”
This was a hugely successful sporting event which we are certain that all involved thoroughly enjoyed; we look forward to seeing the King’s St Alban’s pupils once again in the not too distant future and building relationships as the cohort transition to “Big King’s” in September 2023.
