School Sporting Succeses

With pupils competing at county and national level we've had some tremendous results to shout about...

Boys’ Hockey


The U14A boys' hockey XI have made it the National Finals a fantastic achievement and the first Uppingham team to do so in 20 years. Click here to read more.

Cross Country


Uppingham’s Cross Country teams had a tremendous Spring term, with both individual and team success. The Inter Girls and Senior Boys won the Leicestershire and Rutland Cross Country Relay Championships, with Alexander Macfadyen and Freya Radford each coming fifth in the County and going on to represent Leicestershire and Rutland in the nationals.

Freya also won the Nottingham 5k. In the East Midlands Independent Schools Cross Country League the Inter Boys, Senior Boys and Girls all finished first overall in their groups, whilst in the National Cross Country event at Coventry our Boys and Girls team finished 17th and 20th in the country respectively.


Keeping up the School’s impressive record in shooting, Ross Carmichael won the Junior Shooting Championship Final of Northampton, Leicestershire and Rutland target shooting association.


Uppingham’s golf team has made it through to the National Finals of the Independent Schools’ Golf Cup, which will take place in St Mellion, Cornwall, at the end of April. They overcame Oundle 3-0 in the Regional Final to progress to the climax of the tournament.

Rugby - Star Selections

Jack Hughes, currently in the Lower Sixth, was called up to join the England U17s Rugby Team for a clash against Scotland. After a series of impressive performances for Northampton Saints in the U18 Premiership, Jack is now part of the England squad being assessed for the U17 tour to South Africa this summer, and for next season’s England U18 squad.

Xavier Cranwell and Edward Clayton represented Northampton Saints U17s in their match against Leicester Tigers U17s - an impressive achievement for the boys.  The young Saints were triumphant on this occasion.

And completing the line-up of honours were Henry Langford and Carlson White who represented the Lambs against Gloucester. 

Our congratulations to all of these talented young pupils.
