A huge well done to all of the girls involved. A phenomenal season for all teams at both District and County level. With the Year 10 team winning the District Championship, this means they have gone undefeated this season with 4 County League wins. A particular well done to all of the Year 10 pupils, especially juggling extra curricular commitments leading up to (and during) their mock exams.
Thank you to Mrs Higgins, Mrs Clark and Mrs Newberry for coming along to help out at Athletics Club this season and a particular huge thank you to the PE staff who have given up a lot of time this season (both at clubs and fixtures) to give the girls the opportunity to compete – Miss Cameron, Mrs Waters, Miss Oakman and Miss Morgan.
Well done, girls! Roll on Sports Day!
