Year 10 Hockey Champions!

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! Huge congratulations to our Year 10 Girls' Hockey Team who are now district champions after winning their tournament on Tuesday. The girls played five tough games against Backwell, Gordano, Clevedon, Nailsea and Priory with multiple goals from Meg Coman and Ella Hutchinson. Nominated players repeatedly went to Katie Mackay and Steph Osmant but we had a glowing report for all students involved. Team PE are so proud of you!  Celebrations to follow - Team PE will let you know when this is.  Pictures on Twitter and Facebook.
