Sports Day Fun

Well done to everyone who took part in Sports Day. Everyone entered into good-spirited competition and as a result it was hugely enjoyable for pupils, staff and family spectators who came along to support.

The day started on the school field with pupils split into teams – red, green, white, black, grey and blue. Each team rotated around the activities with the aim of gaining the most points. Activities included the hockey challenge, balancing a cup of water on your head, hurdling the hay bales, tennis racquet control, bean bag throwing and the extremely popular penalty shoot out.

After a short break competitors returned for the tug of war. We started with Primary year groups competing against each other and worked up the year groups to the secondary pupils. The contest culminated in the staff team taking on pupils (and parents).

We were pleased that so many parents and carers were able to join us for lunch and that the weather was good enough to eat outside.

After the lunch break we headed over the road to Trinity Fields for the running races. Once again these were highly competitive with pupils striving for the finishing line. The day finished with the traditional staff and parents’ race and no doubt PBs will be debated in the staff room until this time next year!

Thank you to all the family members who came along and supported our budding sports stars and a huge well done to everyone for making it a fun event for the whole school.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
