Head of Badminton: Mr John Raw

Badminton at Bancroft’s is increasingly popular and last year we saw every year group representing the school in fixtures throughout the year at some point.

We have a growing list of friendly fixtures against local schools in addition to entering teams into the National Schools’ Championships, with teams reaching the regional round of the tournament for the past four years.  We have a number of very talented players, a few of whom represent the county regularly in matches and tournaments.  Our squad team meet weekly to train together, working on movement around the court, drills to improve shot selection and execution, and tactics for game-play.

In addition, Badminton Club is for players of all abilities and we often have complete beginners joining in the fun.

11+ Open Morning & resumption of Minibus service

On Saturday 16 November, we are holding our final 11+ Open Morning for entry to Bancroft’s in September 2020.  Refreshments will be served from 9.30am onwards before introductory talks at 10am.  Pupil led tours will follow and there will be plenty of chances to talk to staff.  We look forward to meeting you on Saturday.

We are pleased to advise you that the roadworks directly outside the school have now concluded and the resulting traffic congestion has therefore eased. As a result we will be restoring the Loughton Minibus Service to it’s normal time with immediate effect, from Wednesday 13th November onwards it will be in the Sainsbury’s Car Park at Loughton Station from 7.45am and will depart promptly at 8am.
