Sports Days

Excitement was in the air as both Infant and Junior pupils got ready for the first two Sports Days on our new field, competing for either Ascot, Chepstow, Goodwood or Kempton house.

With more classes and more space, some brand new events joined old favourites this year. First up were the Infants, who circulated around ten events including new additions, the space hopper relay and vortex throw. At the half way point, Ascot were leading the way, with just 7 points separating first and fourth. After the second round, Ascot emerged the victors by just 1 point.

Two days later, our older pupils took to the field. After a carousel of events - in which the sun finally came out to play - Goodwood were leading the pack by 3 points. After some exciting mixed-age relays and a long-distance race to end the day, the final results were in: Goodwood were pipped to the post by Chepstow who, by just one point, are the 2018 champions.

As always, a big thank you to all of the parents and other family members who supported the children, and, most importantly, well done to all of our pupils for their effort, determination and sportsmanship.
