Another week of successful sports afternoon with year 12, Year 9 and year 7. Year 7 and 9 had a traditional athletics focused sports day with 60m,100m, 200m, 500m and 4x50m relay races and a tug of war competition. Year 12's had a different sports afternoon as this gave them the opportunity to play sports together such as football, netball and dodgeball as they do not get the chance within school time.
Well done to 9M who came first with 156 points, 9S with 152 points coming second and in third place was 9T with 134 points
Although England sadly lost the final, 2nd place is an amazing achievement and the whole team worked so hard and played well with the first goal scored in the first two minutes. There has been such a shift and growth in the England squad compared to previously so these are the positive things we need to focus on.
An amazing opportunity from one of our year 7 girls Bella Grant who was fortunate enough to be able to watch the Final amongst other matches at Wembley Stadium. Bella plays for Barnet Nightingale Football Club that is run and coached by her Dad and together they share their love for football. Bella was on BBC news on 'This Morning' on Monday 12th July being interviewed about her views on the match and the England team as well as being able to express her passion for football to the nation on live TV. She was so positive and spoke highly of the players and her experiences at these matches and it was a pleasure to see her so confident and talkative during her interview.
WE ARE IN TOKYO! After a long term of working together as a school to walk, run, jog or skip from The Compton School to the Tokyo Olympic Stadium we finally have made it. Thank you and well done to all staff and students who took part in the 'Road to Tokyo' challenge and helped to raise money for some amazing charities.
