Sports Day 2017. 

We are proud to announce that our Sports Day will be on Monday 17 July 2017. We are excited to once again be staging such an enjoyable event that will celebrate the whole school community involved within the joy of participating in sport. Like last year, all students will be asked to participate to win points for their house. All students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 will be involved either as competitors, team managers, helpers, or spectators.

Students will be registered as normal at 8.40am, and then escorted by tutors to the back of school to be transported by coach to South Gloucestershire & Stroud College in Filton from 8.45am onwards.  At the end of the event, students will be returned to school by coach.  It is difficult to give an exact finish time as this will depend on how smoothly the day runs, but we envisage students being dismissed from school between 2.45pm and 3.15pm.

Students will be required to wear a plain house coloured t-shirt, black shorts or skirt, or tracksuit bottoms, white sport socks and trainers.  If you are unsure of which house your son/daughter is in and the house colour they need to wear for Sports Day, please refer to the colour of their lanyard.

A letter from Mr Collin will be sent out closer to the day outlining further information about the day.
