Sports Day is always a day that stands out in the school year for being a day of fabulous participation and House Spirit. This year it felt even more special as, due to the pandemic, not only was it our first normal Sports Day since 2019, it was also the first time the School had gathered together in one place, albeit in our year group bubbles, since March 2020! 

The venue for the occasion was the Prince of Wales Stadium, where the temperature reached a balmy 24 degrees and the sun shone throughout. Conditions were perfect for lots of fast times on the track and the day did not disappoint. An amazing 14 school records were broken on the day with two having stood for well over a decade! 

The day began with the traditional whole school warm-up (within Year group bubbles) before the competitors took their places for day to start. Events contested included Discus, Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Javelin and various track distances, giving all our students the chance to take part.

It was a delight to watch every pupil compete for their House and try their very best, as well as cheering on their friends and House mates. 

The staff were ably assisted by our Sixth Form students, who were not only busy officiating, but also competing throughout the day. 

A wonderful day was had by all.
