There were 14 schools present with over 100 runners in each race! Scott came 2nd and helped the Boys team to 3rd place overall and the Girls team 8th.

Our Girls football team celebrated winning the Shoreham schools football tournament at Shoreham Academy. They were undefeated against the 6 other schools. Congratulations!
The first team to wear the new kit was our Boys football team who played in the Albion Cup on Friday 2nd November. 25 teams from across West Sussex participated and our team came top of the League stage, scoring 14 goals. They went on to narrowly lose 1-2 to North lancing in the semi finals. However, they now go forward to represent West Sussex in the Brighton and Hove Albion Cup to be held at the American Express Elite Football Academy in Lancing at the end of November. The winning team will then have the honour of representing the Albion in the Premier league Cup for schools representing the 20 Premier teams. We wish them good luck.
Our school has been very fortunate to have been given a free Nike kit from the Football Foundation, funded by the Premier League. Due to an error on their part we have also been granted an away shirt in yellow as well as a full home kit of blue and gold striped shirt (blue for our school and gold for our Christian faith) with blue shorts and blue socks. We are very grateful to the Premier League who funded it.
