Unfortunately, the Under 8s lost by 111 runs on Friday. QEGS scored 139 for no wicket from their 20 overs, we could only manage 68 for 8 (which left us on an overall score of 28). It was a tough fixture against a very strong team .

Top scorer – Abdullah A with 20 runs.

Best bowling performances – Ben H – 2 overs for 5 runs, Kapil K – 2 overs for 6 runs.


Congratulations to the U9s team whose excellent behaviour at QEGS is to be highly commended.

They played well as a team (ably captained by Naveen) given that they have only had about two sessions in the ‘A Game’ group. It was a close match which we unfortunately lost but by only 20 runs. The game could easily have gone either way!


Last Friday was a great day for the U11s who won by 9 wickets. They chased 87 and reached the total with 3 overs to spare. The bowling and fielding was exceptional by our pupils and collectively they all played their part. QEGS were the only team that beat them last year, so we were delighted with the result.

The U11 B cricket team travelled to Barlborough Hall School on Wednesday  to play Barlborough A team. This was a great opportunity for some of the boys as it was their first Cricket match ever. The boys found the opposition to be tough cookies and lost by 6 wickets but they all batted and bowled. They were perfectly well behaved.

Harvey J has competed in the Notts & Derby Border Youth Cricket league.


Wednesday 20th May, our U11 team played at the City Ground last night. After drawing 0-0, we were beaten 3-2 on penalties. During the game we had the two best chances to score, but unfortunately their goalkeeper made two excellent saves. To play in a professional football stadium was a great experience for the team.

Finn D completed in the  National Sports Acrofinals at the weekend, although he did not medal he did a fantastic routine with his partner Connor and performed with real confidence in front of 400 people.  He had a really wonderful time and is already planning his routines for next year’s qualifiers.


Sahat S attained 1st place in the ESPSCA Chess finals

Zayan B competed in the U8s semi-final of the EPSCA semi-finals.
Mo S has successfully completed F1 level of the Kumon English programme.

Harry E has achieved the 2000m Rainbow Award.

Report on ESSA East Midland regional round at Louth, Lincs on Friday 24th April, 2015.
After a busy afternoon at NHIJS Sports Day, Neel B, Joseph P, Viraj D, Isaac M and Hou Yu L travelled for two hours to Louth, Lincolnshire to take part in the East Midlands regional round for ESSA (English Schools Swimming Association). The first event was a straight final for the freestyle relay teams where we swam against five other strong schools and came third qualifying for a place at the National Finals at Ponds Forge, Sheffield on Saturday 20th June. In our second event we came a very close 4th in the medley relay, missing out on third place by a quarter of a second! The children were fantastic and showed great sportsmanship and maturity. Well done!
