Curriculum: County Championship Cross Country



On Saturday 12th January, 28 of our students took part in the Cornwall Schools Cross Country event held at Truro School.  In cold and blustery conditions our students ran superbly achieving many outstanding team and individual results.

We now have 2 county champions in cross country.

Maisy Luke in the Year 8 and 9 Girls

In addition Year 8 Luke Mills achieved a brilliant 3rd place in the Junior boys, where he is a year young in this age category.

Other individual highlights were:
Year 7 boys: Elliot Stoddard 5th place
Year 7 Girls: Pollyanna Gardiner 12th, Bridie Buist 13th
Junior Girls: Poppy Luxton 12th, Erin Goldring 15th
Junior Boys: Jake Allen 11th,
Many of our runners are now up for selection to represent Cornwall in the regional championships in February.
Team wise in the 6 categories we entered we achieved 3 first places and 2 runners up positions.  

Congratulations to all our students who took part and thanks to parents for their support on the day.
