The year seven to nine girls were first in action, with three groups of three teams before knockout rounds, and the Coopers A team of Amelia Ngooi, Isabella Uzal, Chloe Brand and Ruby Foley took top spot after staying unbeaten.

The year 10-11 girls competed in the afternoon, with seven teams battling it out for honours in two groups, before knockout matches and a final.

And it was an all-Coopers tie in the decider, with the A team of Chloe Taylor-Downes, Ella Madle, Grace Griffiths and Evie Smart crowned champions after seeing off their classmates.

The younger boys competition the following day was the biggest of the lot, with 10 teams taking part in two groups of five, before semi-finals and a final.

And it finished with another 1-2 for Coopers, as the A team of Patrick McLean-Tattan, Simon Hill, Connor Bailey and Henry Hammond saw off their B team.

The final event of the week for the older boys saw Coopers A dominate their opponents all the way through to the final.

The other half of the draw was much tighter, with Campion edging out Emerson Park A by a couple of points to reach the decider.

But despite their best efforts, there was no stopping the Coopers A team of Liam Purton, Alex Chau, Callum Cheung and Anthony Weingarten as they completed a quadruple for the Upminster school.
