Sports Day 2015

Thames Valley Athletics Club was the venue for our first College Sports Day. Our 123 athletes worked incredibly hard to fulfill all of their tutor groups events, especially with some tutor groups only having 6 girls. The whole staff team were out in force, some in interesting headwear, ensuring each event was accurately measured and officiated.

After a full track and field competition, the tutor groups fought in an extremely competitive tug of war - Mrs Dawson’s Destroyers appeared to have done a lot of practice! In a nail biting finish the 'double point' relays became extremely important. While the scores were finalized the infamous Parents v Staff v Students 8 x 100m really closed the morning. A gallant effort from the brave parents and a Usain Bolt leg from Mr Hayes for the staff, could not prevent the students from their victory.

Dawson’s Destroyers and Bicknell’s Beavers were the overall winners. Well done to ALL students for their participation.
