On a glorious day at Lammack playing fields, pupils and students enjoyed yet another exciting and closely contested Sports Day.  The day gave our pupils and students a chance to showcase their sporting prowess, great energy, and competitive team spirit.  The fantastic performances from the athletes ensured a lively atmosphere, as the Houses went head-to-head to win the House Challenge Shield.

It was a close competition right up until the end, and when all the points were totalled, the worthy winners were Raleigh House.

The final points and House positions:

1st Raleigh 393 pts
2nd Howard 389 pts
3rd Grenville 377 pts
4th Frobisher 362 pts
