A false start to our annual sports day the day before due to the great British weather, saw the competitors raring to go on a cloudy but muggy afternoon.

Following a very rigorous process, we are delighted to introduce to you our new Head Boy and Head Girl! We caught up with them earlier in the week, when the news was still sinking in, and asked them for their thoughts. As you can see by their responses below, they are extremely articulate young people who have thrown themselves wholeheartedly into all aspects of school life and fully deserve this accolade.
Pupils and staff in our Transition Room were over the moon with the delivery of the brand-new tables and chairs, kindly funded by our hard-working PTA.

We landed in Johannesburg at 9.00am on Friday 5th April, having spent Thursday night in the air, doing our best to get some sleep during the 13 hour flight! Have you ever tried sleeping sitting up? We found it is almost impossible to sleep for longer than 20 minutes at a time.
It was fantastic to welcome back to the school three of our former pupils who have gone on to play starring roles for their clubs and country in rugby league. Oliver Gildart, Joe Burgess and Luke Thompson.
