I trust that you have all had a good break and enjoyed the weather we have been blessed with this Easter. We are looking forward to seeing your children at pre-season Rounders and Tennis training on Friday and Cricket training on Saturday. While the sessions are not compulsory it is a very positive way to start the term, get fit, hone skills and begin to feel involved with the Witham teams.

Tennis: Please meet Mrs S. Morgan-Jones on the top tennis courts.

U13 Girls: Please meet Mrs J. Tarver at the Cricket Pavilion at 12:45pm.
U11 Girls: Please meet Mrs L. Edwards at the Cricket Pavilion at 2:30pm.
U13 Boys: Please meet Mr S. Wills at the Cricket Pavilion at 10:00am (Saturday).

Kit: all children should wear Witham Hall Sports kit for pre-season. Boys must remember their Cricket bags if they have it, if not the school equipment will be available (no cricket whites for training). Please bring both indoor and outdoor trainers, as well as studs/astros in case the grass is wet.

A polite reminder that all Games/PE kit must be stored in a large blue string bag when in the changing rooms. A smaller blue string bag is also necessary to store school uniform in whilst changed. These are available in the school shop.

Supplementary kit: depending on the weather please bring a waterproof/change of clothes/warm layers/caps/sun cream.

Food/drink: ALL children should bring plenty to drink and will need to bring a packed lunch.

We hope as many children as possible will attend pre-season training. However, should this not be possible then please kindly email Mr Wills ( or Mrs Tarver (

CANCELLATION: should the weather be particularly bad making training not worthwhile then a cancellation email will be sent at about 9am on Friday 21st April and a notice will be placed on the website.
