Race for Life & Community Day 2022
Last Friday we hosted our annual Community Day, where our students spent the afternoon on the school fields. We started with the Race for Life event which raises money for Cancer Research UK. Students from all years had a dance warm up led by Miss Hambly before running, jogging or walking the 2 lap, 5km route around the school fields and recreation ground. On finishing, they were presented with a medal before heading off to the various stalls laid out by staff and sixth form students, including but not limited to – penalty shoot out, soak the teacher, BBQ, whack a rat and ice cream van.

Thank you to our Level 3 BTEC Business students (pictured) organised the race this year as part of their “organising an event” unit of work, and what a fantastic job they did – well done to Pip, Scarlett, Eliza, Josh and Freddie for making it a success!
