Updated: BBC star helps pupils go the extra mile for Sports Relief

This week pupils were delighted to welcome BBC presenter and GB triathlete Louise Minchin to the school to help kick-start Sports Relief activities!

Mrs Minchin joined Senior and Sixth Form students, dressed in an array of weird and wonderful outfits, in their Sports Relief mile, before marshalling a series of fun activities, including a bean bag and skipping race.

Earlier, the Infants started the day’s activities by running a very spirited mile around the astro pitches. They were spurred on by their teachers who joined them on the morning run and have so far collected more than £100 in sponsorship.

Junior pupils joined the action later in the morning, determined to post the quickest times, with the musical backdrop of ‘Step it Up for Sports Relief 2018’ motivating them around the track. A fiercely fought tug-of-war on Thursday saw Houses go head-to-head for glory!

Overall the school raised more than £2,000 for Sports Relief, thank you to everyone for your support and generosity.
