July 6th 2022 saw the return of the NSB Whole School Sports Day, after an enforced three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. In truth, it felt we had never been away. This is the one day in the school calendar when lessons are suspended and the entire school population comes 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. Indeed, there were many present who considered this year’s event to be one of the best ever; remarkable really when you consider that we were introducing Years 7, 8 and 9 to this event for the first time.
This year saw the introduction of House Mascots and their sprint race was an entertaining affair, with Barney the Bull taking it on the line for Brightwell. However, 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 four 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 Houses.

Grateful thanks are expressed to all staff and Sixth Form students who gave up their time in order to encourage the performers, supervise students and officiate over events throughout the day. Particular thanks are given the Year 12 BTEC Sport students who did a tremendous job in the planning and running of both the Year 8 and Year 10 softball competitions.
Congratulations go to all students who were active, regardless of final positions. Every performance contributed to the respective House totals. Particular congratulations go to Mr J Bradbury and Chipsey House, who won the overall Sports Day having placed first at Year 7 and 9, and second at Years 8 and 10.
