They beat Cowbridge Sports College, the Welsh Schools Champions, in the morning match and then Sir Tommy Rich's Grammar School, Gloucester, in the afternoon final.

They have now won nine matches in this competition since April, beating Bristol Grammar School, QEH, Clifton College, Colstons, John Cabot Academy, Millfield, Trinity College, Cowbridge and STRs.

They are now down to the last four schools in Britain, and play in the national finals over the weekend of December 5 and 6 at the Bolton Indoor Arena. They are the South West England and Wales representatives and will play the winning school from the South East, Midlands and North England and Scotland regions.
