House Battling Sports Day
We had a wonderful sports day this week; the weather was lovely and the house system was officially launched. De La Hay, De Clare and De Valance are our three houses which all historically link to William Marshal, took on sports day with a vengeance desperate to win. Flags, chants and even drums kicked off the event on the school field, and the majority of students took part for house points towards the grand totals. Field events, track events and even a bit of traditional fun with obstacle and egg and spoon races were enjoyed by everyone. House staff were also involved with a full on competitive 400m relay at the end of the day and you may have seen on Facebook that De Valance staff took the medals for that race. The overall winner will be announced in our big celebration assembly later today! Watch this space!
