St. James’ is lucky enough to have a professional squash coach as a member of the Prep Department teaching staff. The squash academy is available to children in the Prep Department. Pupils train weekly, throughout the year, at the local facility at Millfield’s Hotel in Grimsby (within walking distance of the School). Once pupils enter the Senior Department, they attend Squash and assist in training their younger peers.
This year, our Prep Squash Academy members attended the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Professional Squash Tournament held at Cleethorpes Cricket club and enjoyed watching two matches played by some of the best squash players in the world. One of the players included former St. James’ School student, Harry Falconer, who cruised to a fantastic 3-0 victory .He certainly inspired many of our talented youngsters!
