There will be plenty of new winners at the Butterfly School Team Championship National Finals, with only two of last year’s champions making it through the Regional Finals.
They are Redlands Primary from Worksop (Notts), who will defend the title in the Under-11 Girls’ competition, and St Mary’s College, Hull, who were last year’s Under-13 Boys champions but this year have stepped up to Under-16s.
The other three champion teams which competed in the Regional Finals in Bristol, Blackburn and Grantham, were all knocked out and will not get to compete at the Butterfly National School Team Championship Finals at Hinckley Leisure Centre on March 14.
St Mary’s are one of several schools to have qualified in more than one category – they are also represented in the U19 Boys’ category. Whitgift School, Carlton-le-Willows Academy, Ackworth School, Toot Hill School, St Peter’s CE Primary Academy and Fox Primary are also in more than one category.
The full list of qualifiers can be seen below.
