Normans = 1st, Celts = 2nd, Saxons = 3rd, Vikings = 4th
The keystage 3 sports day was a thrilling 2 day event. The lead was constantly changing between the houses, with Mrs Taylor putting in almost as much effort as the year 7 and 8 athletes. The boys year 8 relay was an impressive spectacle with the Saxons getting a fast time of 59.9 seconds. Louis Bougourd of the Celts had a day to remember getting gold in the 800m with a time of 2.37, closely followed by Charlie Moss, Alex Richard and Lewis Critchley Hope. In the year 8 girls 800m, Grace Ashurst(Celts) secured 1st place with an impressive time of 2.35, followed by Georgia Thurling and Jemima Ryles. The year 7 race was won by Jack Boston (Vikings), with a time of 2.48 and Hannah Carter (Saxons) with a time of 2.54. In the year 8 400m, Grace White (Saxons) was very close to breaking the school record, with a time of 1.10. In the sprint events there were a few surprise results. Jack Roussell ran a fantastic 200m in 29.94 to get 1st place for Vikings, and Ethan Woolacot beat a very strong field to get 1st place in the 100m for the Saxons.
The students should all be very proud of the effort they put into the events. It was very pleasing to see them showing such commitment to their houses, and I hope the year 8 students enjoyed their last Hugh Sexey sports day.
Many thanks to the staff who contributed so much towards the 2 days.
