The whole of the senior school enjoyed a wonderful day of sport - competing, supporting and spectating.  Teamwork, camaraderie and house spirit were all in evidence as the four St Benedict’s houses battled it out in track and field events.

The Head of Athletics, Mr Myles Stringer, said:

“It was amazing to see so many pupils showing how athletically talented they are, and we witnessed some incredible performances.

“This year’s new format worked well, with A track events and B field events  in the morning, and a swap around in the afternoon, culminating with everyone’s favourite – the 4x100m relays.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this extremely exciting day and couldn’t be prouder of everyone who took part.  I actually can’t wait for next year!”
