Sports Presentation Evening

On Thursday 13th July 200 students and parents packed into the main hall for our annual Sports Presentation Evening. This was the first time the event has been a sell out and we could have sold even more tickets!

Special guest for the evening was professional jockey George Chaloner who at 25 years old has over 1500 senior rides, including a Royal Ascot winner in 2014 that George referred to as like winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Unfortunately George had a terrible fall at Newcastle in February, travelling at 46mph on fibre sand. The result of this was a broken back and George is now full of metal, unsure whether he will ride again. After watching some footage of George winning at Royal Ascot, Mr Beesley interviewed him on stage and he was able to share some experiences and give advice to our students who are budding athletes.

Lots of sporting talent was celebrated on the evening including both team and individual successes. Trophies were presented to the Boy and Girl Player of the Year in each year group as-well as Boy and Girl Most Improved Player in each year group. The night then finished with the presentation of the Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award which was this year given to departing Year 11 student Harry Poole.
