Fencing Success!

I am very happy to report that the Glyn School Fencing team did really well on Sunday 20 May, winning a Bronze Medal in the British Schools’ Team Championships Under 15 Foil event.

Two teams from Glyn School took part in the British Schools’ Team Champs:

Glyn A Team 

Rowan Halls 10B

Max Brooks Scodellaro 10B

Max Jones 8D

James Bowcott 10O


Glyn B Team

Oliver Murray 10A

Jake Williams 10D

Oscar Williams 10A

Sam French 10A

Both teams fenced well in the First Round Knockout, but the B team had some close matches and did not progress to the Elimination round. 

The Glyn A team had victories over RGS Guildford and Colchester and progressed to the semi-finals where they met Bishop of Llandaff School who had a strong team, including three National fencers. The Glyn team had a good start and were leading for much of the match. However, they were overtaken just at the end of the match to finish 45-36, but securing a bronze medal in this National competition. 

This was a great performance by all the Glyn   Fencers and the first time we have won a medal in these National Finals.
