Final Worship May 25th 2018 - Award Winners
Congratulations year 11! (15th June 2018)
Most of you have finished your exams today so I wanted to congratulate you all for keeping your cool and getting through it. The invigilators have been impressed with both your behaviour and your remembering the correct equipment, so well done.
I personally have been impressed by all those students who were so anxious during the previous months, (you know who you are!) All of you managing to overcome your fears and in fact coping extremely well, better than even I hoped for. Extra special congratulations to you and remember... now you know without doubt, you are able to cope with whatever life throws at you and you can do it!
I hope you enjoy your long holiday, get some rest and I will see you at the prom on 29th June.
Huge congratulations to Nicholas Earley!
Nick had an incredibly difficult time last year with his Cancer diagnosis, which we are delighted to say he has now fully recovered from. We were humbled by his smiling face throughout and his strength of character.
Nick so deserves this The High Sheriff Award for overcoming adversity.
Well done Nicholas.

English Schools Cross- Country Championships
Henry McLuckie 11JQU, won the English Schools Cross- Country Championships convincingly by 50 yards in brutal conditions of -10C at Temple Newsam Park, in Leeds. He was competing against 367 runners from 46 counties to take the title at 15 years and 10 months old!
Last week Henry competed at the under-17s race at the UK Inter-County Cross-Country Championships in Loughborough, Leicestershire and came 5th.
This win in Leeds, watched by former Head of PE Tim Whitmarsh (having crossed the Pennines to be there), means Henry will run for England in the Schools International and Home Countries International against Ireland, Scotland and Wales on Saturday 24th March at Wollaton Park Nottingham.
Well Done Henry, we will all be willing you on too another superb victory!
A massive well done to Henry McLuckie who won the Under 17’s South of England cross-country finals at the weekend, beating his closest competitor by 7 seconds. Henry is a whole year younger than a lot of the other runners, making this a truly fantastic achievement. Well done and keep preparing yourself so you are ready to run for England in the summer.
