Curriculum: Cornwall Schools Cross Country

On Saturday 20th January at a very muddy Newquay Sports Centre 25 of our students represented the school at the annual Cornwall Schools Cross Country event. In a very high level competition our students performed admirably and achieved some excellent results. In the team events our Year 7 Boys finished in 2nd place and the Year 7 Girls went one better winning a gold medal. The Year 8/9 Girls narrowly missed out on a medal position which without the unavailable County Champion Maisy Luke was a really good effort.

Individual highlights from the results were;

Year 7 Girls- Poppy Luxton 10th, Sophie Mocke 11th, Erin Goldring 14th, Lily Blake 15th.

Year 7 Boys- Luke Mills 3rd, Leo Shipton 14th, Jack Bolton 15th

Year 8/9 Girls- Phoebe Andrews 11th, Emily Reep 15th, Morwenna Tonkin 16th

Many of our athletes have been given availability forms for the regional rounds of this event happening in early February.

Congratulations to all our students who took part in this event.
