This half term brings a change in activities in PE lessons and students need to make sure they have the correct kit for all activities. An email has been sent home to all parents of boys in KS3 regarding the need for a protective mouthguard for rugby. In addition there are a number of new sports clubs starting including rugby and table tennis. Full details can be found in the calendar section of the school website.

It was great to see so many KS3 students actively involved in Inter House Cross-Country events before half term. There are many benefits both physically and mentally to be gained from taking part in competitive sport and the IH events offer the opportunity for large numbers of students to get involved. It was particularly pleasing to see the supportive nature of the students with some great evidence of team spirit amongst CDC groups. We are looking to really build on the success of this event with lots more Inter House sports competitions in the months ahead.

KS3 INTER-HOUSE CROSS-COUNTRY

Well done ASH House – Champions !!

This years Inter House Cross-Country races saw the event take place in really challenging conditions given the volume of rain in the build up to the races. However the effort levels in nearly all cases were really high with students were really working hard for their houses. After 6 races ASH House came out on top with a massive 1684 points beating ELM house by just 4 points in the closest results for many years. For those who find the event difficult we continue to reinforce the healthy lifestyles message and remind students they should be doing 7 hours of physical activity a week to maintain a normal level of fitness. The top performers in each race are entered into the District Championships and we look forward to hearing how they got on next week.

The top 3 finishers in each race were as follows :
