Their superb behaviour and manners were commented on by numerous members of staff.

A big thank you to 6 academy of sport 6th formers for assisting in running the event - without their support timing every race the event could not have taken place.
Very proud teachers who are looking forward to another successful summer of athletics! Well done!
