On Thursday 7th July 64 pupils represented the school at the annual District Sports competition at The Deanes. This was my first experience of this event and not only was I impressed with the determination and competitiveness of our pupils, their attitude was exemplary. A highlight being when Anisha congratulated her competitors following a race– Headteachers from other schools also commended her for this. Congratulations to our track team, who achieved 3rd place, and well done to the field events team, who came 4th. Overall we finished 4th.
