Sports Awards Evening 2022
Celebrating teamwork, dedication, and a sensational season of Sport
Sarah Parkinson-Mills, Director of Sport of King’s High and Warwick Prep, reports: ‘Sports Awards Evening is an opportunity to thank all our amazing sportswomen, reflect back on this season, and take a moment to acknowledge all that has been achieved. Be that the incredible number of pupils who have competed at a National Final, come home with medals, or simply that over 400 pupils have represented the school in fixtures this year, their energy, expertise and professionalism is above and beyond.’
Guest of Honour was Hockey player, Leah Wilkinson. Leah is Wales’ most capped sports personality of all time. She represented Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympics, winning Bronze in Hockey. Leah gave an inspiring speech for all our athletes and their proud parents.
Trophies, Coach’s awards, medals and colours were presented for the following: Netball, Hockey, Tennis, Cross Country, Athletics, Gymnastics, Cricket, Football, Skiing, Equestrian, Swimming and Waterpolo. Sadly, there is not space to name each individual winner here, but the roll of honour included inspiring Captains, dogged team players, and amazing feats of sporting prowess.

This was the most competitive award in recent years. Over 1000 voted for the six shortlisted teams, and the result was so close, that just 24 hours before the event, there were only 20 votes between Tennis and Netball!
