Glebe finished the season with an impressive win at home against Beeston in which the team played superbly. Joel (31no) and Matthew (14) got us to a great start with Matthew departing with our score at 66-2. With some explosive hitting lower down the order, we got to 95 runs with the bat and bowled out Beeston for 64 with Ethan, Freddie G and Charlie being the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets each. Theo and Ned also bowled well and Matthew who had a fine game as wicket keeper claimed the last wicket with the final ball of the match. Well done everyone on a super performance!

Wednesday, 26th June

Last Wednesday we played two matches against St. Hugh’s. I won the toss for the ‘A’ team and chose to bat first. Each of our pairs ran well between the wicket and we managed to score 271 runs. We were winning the match until the last St. Hugh’s pair came to the wicket. They overtook our total and scored 308 runs, winning the match by 37 runs. My man of the match was Stanley for his great all-round play, including catching someone out from his own bowling. Well done team!

Under 9s Kwik Cricket vs Downham

On Wednesday 19th June, Glebe U9 boys played Kwik Cricket against Downham Prep at home. They won the toss and chose to bat first. Glebe bowled well in keeping their score down to 260, getting 6 wickets. Our fielding was not the best and this is something that we can work on for future matches. We went in to bad and without anyone getting out, we scored 314 so won by 54 runs. Man of the match was Stanely for his excellent catch but the other boys also played well. Well done team on your batting and bowling but we must work on our fielding.

Well done to our girls who had a great afternoons cricket on Friday against Gresham’s with our Development team losing narrowly to Gresham’s B and C and our Competition side narrowly losing to Gresham’s B but beating Gresham’s C.

Headmaster’s Last Word – Week ending 14.06.19

I often consider myself to be in a fortunate position at Glebe as I can have a foot in two camps. Not only am I Headmaster, but also I have my two children as pupils here.
Now, this can have its downsides of course. Having to politely tell one of my children that ‘Daddy can’t watch you do rolly polys on my sofa right at this minute because he has an important meeting’ is always fun. Being called ‘Sir Daddy’ at home by mistake was, however, one of the highlights!
My experiences and those of Naomi as new parents here can often be very important in forming my opinion of the ethos the school has and the direction in which it is moving.
Let’s take the swimming gala today, for example, and swimming as a whole. When I saw the distance that the children had to race, I jokingly asked a colleague what our ‘anti drowning policy was’ as I had never seen my son swim that far. Of course, I was very proud of him when he managed that distance with no problem. I was just as proud to see all of the children having a chance to participate, at their level, with such enthusiasm and support from their friends and family.
Another example is with my daughter, who came up in assembly on Monday. The shy and timid young lady that she was at the start of the year in a similar situation was now gone, replaced by someone with confidence and ease. Again, I am as proud of the other children who I have seen come on a similar journey this term.
Of course, our academic profile is second to none. We have children every year getting prestigious scholarships to independent schools, wining national competitions and our tracking system ensures that each individual child reaches their potential.
In addition to that though, are those intangible things that I get to see first hand as a parent. Not just swimming, not just confidence in a once shy child, but that Glebe effect. It is all around us to see and it is something that whatever changes are made to improve the school, must be at the heart of what we do.
I can’t wait to show the school off again at tomorrow’s Open Day and I hope to see many of you there to meet our new uniform supplier.
Have a great weekend,
Louis Taylor

Wednesday, 5th June

The ‘A’ team batted first and we scored lots of boundaries. Jaybe was the top scorer with 28 runs and Benjy, Freddie Kelsey and I all managed to get into the twenties as well. We scored 289 runs in total.

We fielded very well and Riddlesworth scored 235 runs but because they arrived late we didn’t have time to complete all our overs. The match therefore ended in a draw although I feel we were definitely the better team and would have won. My man of the match is Freddy Williamson for some great all-round play. Well done team!

Jacob (Captain)

The ‘B’ team fielded first and I managed to get two wickets and Luke got the other. Riddlesworth scored 305 runs in total.

We were not able to complete our match because of time restrictions but we batted well scoring 258 runs in our eight overs. Freddie Hawkins top scored with 26 runs including a huge six. We still had eight overs to bat and I am sure it would have been a very close game had we completed the match. We drew the game in the end.

Jack (Captain)

On Wednesday 5th June we played our first cricket match of the season against Riddlesworth Hall at home. I won the toss and chose to field first. We fielded and bowled well, with Kitty & Tabitha both getting a wicket. In total Riddlesworth Hall scored 324 runs.
After match tea it was our turn to bat. Everyone did well considering it was our first game and we were facing some under 11 players. Orla and Maddie deserve a special mention as they both scored boundaries. We scored 227 runs after 12 overs. Unfortunately we did not have time to play our final 12 overs and therefore we do not know who won the match.
I would suggest that we try to hit and run a bit more in our next match to increase our score.
Everyone played well but my girl of the game is Zoe for all round good play and her first match with us as at Glebe House School. Well played team.

U11 Rounders – Gracie-Mae’s team

On Wednesday the 5th of June St Hugh’s came to play a rounders match. I won the toss and chose to field first. In this innings we weren’t that alert, and that let St Hugh’s score 9.5 rounders.

Then we went into bat. On the first ball I scored a whole rounder. Eliza also scored a whole rounder and Sydney scored two more. We also scored 12 half rounders, giving us a total of 10.

In the second innings St Hugh’s scored 10.5 rounders. Sydney did a great catch, getting one of the St Hugh’s players out. We came into bat and once again I scored a rounder on our first ball, Eliza scored another rounder and Sydney scored two rounders. Emily, Sydney and I each scored a half rounder and Shayla and Eliza scored two half rounders each. Wealso gained fivehalf rounders from no-balls and obstruction. In total we scored 10.5 rounders.

The final score was St Hugh’s 20, Glebe 20.5. A really close game, but a great win, well done girls!

My man of the match is Eliza for scoring 4.5 rounders and getting the St Hugh’s ‘Man of the Match’.
