On Thursday 7th July 2016 the whole school attended the Saffron Lane Athletics track for our annual Sports Day. Throughout the event, students from years 7-10 competed against one another to represent their form houses.
All of the usual field and track events were held and there was excellent participation, with a total of 7 school records being broken!
The record breaking top achievers were:
- Sophie Thorpe: Year 8 Girls 1500m: 5.31
- Fern Harrison: Year 9 Girls 1500m: 5.37
- Alice Clay: Year 10 Girls High Jump: 1.41m
- Shantea Afflick: Year 10 Girls Shot Putt: 7.64m
- Victoria Malone: Year 10 Girls 800m: 3.60
- Arvin O'Dell: Year 9 Boys 800m: 2.18
- Kieron Adjovi: Year 9 Boys High Jump: 1.73m
All of these new records will now be added to the English Martyrs’ Sports Day archive and could remain there for many years to come, well done!
The overall winning house this year wasSt Margaret Ward, however congratulations should be given to all students as the atmosphere and ethos throughout the day were fantastic, with tremendous support shown to all participants. Well done to everyone!
