On a hot and sunny afternoon in June, St Wilfrid’s Key Stage 3 sports day saw the closest year group results on record where a run/jump or throw would have made all the difference. Both staff and sixth form put on a fantastic day that included Benedict taking the staff egg and spoon relay and Catherine winning the Tug of War,  culminating with the female Year 9 relay team and the male staff relay team taking the All Star crowns!

The heat did not stop the five houses, distinguished by bib colour, putting on a show for the spectators.  

In Year 7, there was only 6 points between the top 3, Benedict taking the honours over Dominic by 1 point.

In Year 8, Catherine clocked 31 more points that Dominic to take the title.

Year 9, Catherine again pushed Dominic into 2nd sport winning by only 4 points.

Overall, huge congratulations to Catherine House who won the title by 30 points.

A few records were broken on the day.
