An excellent day of sport was met with perfect weather conditions to make for what some teachers are calling “the best sports day ever!”. The day was hotly contested between the four house (CastleAbbey, Manor, Priory) and all students were able to compete to high levels whilst showing exceptional sportsmanship within the values of the school. The morning session was focussed on mass participation sports and this saw uptake in a wide range of sports and fun games such as Netball, Football, Athletics Field Events, Rounders, Dodgeball, Just Dance and Catch the Flag. With the whole school field, playground, gym, hall and sports hall filled with ongoing activities whilst the DJ was playing set for a lovely atmosphere.
The afternoon session saw the whole school community come together to take part in the track events and house Benchball competition. All students and staff witnessed some stand out performances from students, staff and indeed Sid the Studley Dragon!! Overall, eight athletics records were broken to highlight the hard work and dedication that our most able sports students have applied within their lessons and extra-curricular programme over the last 12 months.
The house competition saw Mr Howitt’s two-year grip on the House Trophy loosen as Mr Rose and Mrs Guest lifted the trophy on behalf of Priory houses combined efforts. Congratulations to Priory house!!
This was the first Sports Day in three years due to COVID and boy it was worth the wait!!
