Friday afternoon saw the second week of House activities commence, where it was the week of the Football for Year 7 and Badminton for Year 9. The Houses had both boys and girls playing together and were managed by Year 11 pupils, really showing the benefits of pupils working together, role modelling and leadership. The Football competition was a close call between Kemp and Hanbury House, with Kemp House taking 1st place. Kemp Housemistress Mrs Taylor said, “They deserved the overall win and has set the standard for the rest of the school”.
Wright and Owen House battled it out for joint third place with Cavendish coming in 4th in the competition. Mr Wood, Owen Housemaster added, “The Owen Year 7 House football team showed excellent determination to win two and draw one of their matches last week”. Year 7 tutor Mr Foster also praised the support given to the teams by all members of the Houses saying, “the students were really spurred on by the great support given on the side-lines, and it made a big difference."

Housemistress Ms Yates said,” I am so proud of my house, they really put their heart and soul into it. I cannot ask for more”.
