Sports Day 2018
July 11th was the one day on this year’s school calendar when lessons were suspended and the entire school population came together to engage in enjoyable and competitive Inter-House activity. Teamwork is vital. With an event of this scale all must play their part, or the day simply will not work. I am pleased to report that once again the students and staff pulled together to make the day a great success and a positive experience for all involved.

Thankfully we had some heavy cloud cover throughout the morning which brought welcome relief from the relentless sun of previous weeks. The relays remain the highlight of the day for many and this year’s series did not disappoint with some fantastically close races. The atmosphere at these 4 events encapsulates what the House system is all about, with staff and students alike rising as one to cheer home their teams who are giving their all on behalf of their House.
