Well done to the U12A team on their success this season. Not only did they win their South Suffolk Tournament (playing against the league teams), but they won their league as well!

King’s Ely have proven footballing credentials on the independent schools circuit; it was a wise choice all round for our firsts to play their seconds, and our seconds to play their thirds, and two cracking games ensued.

Posted on: March, 27th Mar 2018

In Category: Senior School News

There was something intriguingly timely about the choice of play: a strong woman; difficult times; repression and patriarchy.  And also a play with barely a male character in sight for some time; boys playing girls, and girls playing girls.  Identity; control; strength in weakness and weakness in strength.
