The girls were Abbey Bush, Dominique Murphy, Dominique Oakley, Mackenzie Smith, Verity Webb, Bethany Lee, Lena Ingram, and Sophie Bowman.

The girls performed extremely well matching it with the European Countries gaining an outstanding 7th place behind three Czech and three Russian teams. This result was outstanding as Newcastle Grammar School was the only school team competing in these championships displaying an intricate and well executed routine with many powerful moves.
