This then put Bromsgrove at the top of their group and through to the quarter-final against Wellingborough Prep which they won 19 - 4.

Head of Girls’ PE Jenny Danks said “We are extremely proud of all our pupils and staff at the School who keep the standard of netball so high and enable us to achieve these sorts of results year on year. I’d also like to thank the parental support which has been phenomenal. At Bromsgrove Prep School, all of our pupils represent the school in all sports from A – F level, which pushes our A teams to be the best they can be, whilst also facilitating ‘Sport For All’. We are massively excited for the National finals which will be held in Dorset on Saturday 21st March where we are hoping our teams will compete to retain our National title from 2019”.
