ROCKPORT School has only 250 pupils and has never previously been able to field a team for the Inter-Schools’ show jumping.
The school and their young head of PE, Henry Clark (who is, by all accounts, the loveliest, most enthusiastic person ever), were delighted that this year, they could get their first ever team together!
In fact, Rockport sent two teams to The Meadows on Saturday – a team for the Novice (85cm) Team class and another for the Open (1m) Team class. Unbelievably, they WON the Novice Team class, out of 20 teams and came a very creditable third in the Open Team class!
Henry and the kids were so delighted with their debut Inter-Schools’ success that they may as well have won the Olympics!
