This year NLCS were very successful at National Schools Lacrosse Championships, with many teams reaching the farther stages of the competition and overall making it one of the best years for North London at the Nationals.

Yr 8 (U13)

This talented group of athletes had excellent performances throughout the day with 4 convincing wins throughout the morning, securing a place in the Championship Cup. This meant they were in the last 16 in the Championship Cup knockout rounds as they drew with St George’s 3-3. Unfortunately, the tournament rules mean that the team that scores first goes through to the next round. On this occasion that was St George’s, but congratulations must get to the U13s for a phenomenal tournament.

Yr 9 (U14)

The U14s were drawn in a tough section competing against traditionally strong lacrosse schools.

They produced spirited performances throughout their section, and it enabled them to put all their hard work into practice. Congratulations to all players involved on a hard-fought day of lacrosse.

Yr 10 (U15)

The U15s section read like a who’s who of strong Lacrosse schools and our talented U15s rallied to the challenge against very tough teams. They secured two convincing wins which out them into the knockout section of Division 1, where they narrowly lost to Westonbirt after a close and exhilarating match. Congratulations to all players who proved they will be an asset as they progress into the Senior squads.



The seconds had a tough first day at Nationals with difficult opposition but performed as a squad throughout blending a combination of Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 students seamlessly.

They progressed through to the knockout rounds and performed with their usual spirit and grace. Their team cohesion and ethos were exemplified by their consistently strong support of the 1st squad as they progressed through their Division 2 rounds.


Saturday – highlighted the strength of character that NLCS students have in droves and fortitude in the face of adversity that FMB would have found commendable. After suffering a significant injury in the 3rd match of the section both the 2nd and 1sts squads rallied round to support each other as they continued to play their round matches whilst Sienna received medical treatment for her knee. In true North London style, they channelled their inner pioneers and dug deep to secure respectable performances in all their games. Despite Moreton Hall starting the re-scheduled game before North London had been informed, they played with a composed grace worthy of a World Class team.

On Sunday they narrowly missed being placed in the First division and made up for this by securing convincing victories qualifying a place in the knockout rounds. Their calm demeanour hid their core of steel with respect to convincing wins in their preliminary matches featuring typically relentless performances from the whole squad. Opponent after worthy opponent fell to the indomitable strength of the squad as they carve a path of glory to the final where the faced Birkenhead School, a oftentimes National School rival with a fierce reputation. With their “heads on ice, hearts on fire” mantra ringing in their ears, this truly cohesive squad secured a resounding victory and lifted the trophy as the U19A Division 2 Champions. An accomplishment that everyone agreed was the result of the whole Senior Squad’s efforts throughout the season.
