Exeter School Sports Awards 2024

We were delighted to be able to host the annual sports awards at Sandy Park last night with over 200 senior athletes joined by staff and parents to celebrate the sporting successes of the schools’ senior teams and individuals. The team at Sandy Park provided a wonderful three course meal whilst the guests were entertained by speeches from the heads of sports and 1st team captains as they reflected on their season and time at Exeter School. Huge credit to all of the leavers who spoke so eloquently. It was also an opportunity to say farewell to departing staff in Rob Hudson-Daw, Alice Francis, Giles Trelawny and Andy Mason. It was great to welcome Mr Mason back for the evening and he was able to be present as the school introduced a new award, The Mason Cup. The award will be presented annually  to the outstanding Upper Sixth sportsman & sportswoman who have represented multiple 1st teams, achieved representative honours and been ambassadors for sport during their time at Exeter School. The inaugural winners were Harry W. (1st XI Hockey captain, 1st XI Football & 1st XI Cricket) and Georgia R. (1st XI Hockey and 1st XI Cricket) and we are sure than many talented individuals will have their name on the cup in future years.

Each of the schools’ senior sports were recognised with awards given for; Player of the Season to the outstanding player of the 2023-24 season, team player of the year for outstanding performances and the player who always puts the team first, virtues Awards for squad members who epitomize the virtues of the school through their character in sport, colours 2023-24 were awarded to pupils whose 1st team performances, commitment & virtues have been outstanding and finally individual Sport Cups for excellence, commitment, and services to their chosen sport.

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
