Sports Day 2021

Dear Parents/ Carers,


We are pleased to announce that Sports Day this year is going ahead and planned for Friday 9th July with a reserve date of Friday 16th July (if the weather fails us on the first attempt).  This is the first year that every student and staff member in the school will be involved. This is a great opportunity for us to come together to both collaborate and to compete and to enjoy some sport and fun.

In this spirit, students are asked to come to school in sports kit on this day and wearing their house colour.  Please see below for details of the house colours.  It is not a ‘non-school uniform day’ and students should be in sports kit which includes their house colour.  If competing, students will need to ensure they are in appropriate clothing and footwear that reduces the likelihood of injury.  Please ensure that your son/daughter applies sun cream before coming to school and brings some with them as well as a full water bottle; they may wear a sun hat too.  There will be a water point on the field where students can fill up their bottles.
