Sports Day 2017

Last Friday, our PE department held a very ambitious sports day with over 500 participants!

Our Sports teachers decided that to include as many students as possible they would gather teams from each form group in the hope that as many people as possible would take the opportunity to get involved.

Each form group decided which students would take part in the different events (one girl and one boy for each event plus the relay team option) and our year house captains encouraged participation and helped to build a healthy feeling of competition in the build up to the day.

We were relieved when Friday arrived and the weather was on our side. The competition started early with year group heats in the morning followed by the finals in the afternoon:

- 400m run          - 100m run           - mixed relay    

- long jump         - high jump         - shot put

Our sixth form Sport and Physical Activity students assisted with the long jump, the high jump, the shot put and not forgetting the motivational music which kept the athletes going. Mr McGregor did an excellent job of commentating on the main field throughout the day and the sports teachers and heads of Houses kept the events running safely and smoothly.

Every one of our competitors put their all into their events - click below to see the house results from the day. The results have been calculated by 1st place earning 1 point through to 12th place earning 12 points. Therefore the House with the least points wins. This year we have also set some school records which we will use next year as the times and scores to beat:
