Sports Day 2021
Thursday saw pupils from the First, Second, Third and Fourth Year sport their house tops and take to the impressively manicured greenery of Homefield for the 2021 Sports Day.
Very little could dampen house spirit in this rapturous affair, with pupil supporters held in bubbles encircled by the track providing an abundance of applause and encouragement.
Their cheers didn’t fall on deaf ears as some immensely impressive performances were displayed for all to see.
The impressive Estee N winning the Junior Girls 800m, Shot put and High Jump narrowly missing out on a clean sweep of sports day records (1cm in the Shotput, 4cms in the High Jump). Not to be outdone, the unbeaten Ava W recorded an impressive 28.63s for the Junior Girls 200m and also won her Discus by a considerable distance.
