Essex cup run comes to an end for Year 8, with a 2-1 loss to Stanway school in the round of 16. Boys put in a monumental performance and fought back, hugely proud of them and how far they’ve progressed in the cup 👏💚

Importance of Physical Education

It is really important that we promote competitive support in schools, and that we underpin this by good quality physical education and by getting people into patterns of exercise. - Sebastian Coe
