Our Sports Day on Monday July 13 2015 saw a 97%+ level of participation from Year groups 7 – 9. There were some great individual performances and a new school record was set:

  • Kieron Webster, Year 9 Wharton set a new 100M record. His time of 11.94 seconds broke the previous record held by Chris Chavez-Cronin 12.06 seconds (2012)
  • The winning forms were 7 Postgate,  8 Postgate and  9 Dickenson. 
  • The PDF file below shows the winners of every event and their time/distance. 

Well done to the nearly 600 pupils who competed!
Mrs Chattoe will continue the tradition of our popular Sports Day display (including podium photos) in the corridor near M5. Look forward to it!

“...I believe the students young and old today were top class living out our school values. To see our students supporting all participants from first place to last place made me very proud. It truly was a special day.”
— Mr C Thornton, Sport and PE Faculty Leader
