Many congratulations to Priestley House who were awarded the Sports Day Cup on Tuesday after a splendid day of competition at the Brickfields Arena.
Antony James, former student and double Commonwealth medalist, joined us to present all the winners of individual events with their medals and certificates. He encouraged the student audience in the sports day celebration to invest time and effort to ensure their dreams are realised.
A special well done to Archie Hill who equalled the school record for the U15 100m (11.7s).
