Seventeen pupils represented school at the Bradford Schools’ Cross Country Championships at Northcliffe Park on Wednesday. The conditions were atrocious with ankle deep mud, snow and freezing rain but our pupils showed fantastic resilience and good humour.

The only Year 7 to run was Robert Jones who finished 14th despite losing his glasses somewhere in the mud.

Year 8’s who set the standard for the rest of the school in terms of participation and enthusiasm really did us proud. In the girls race Jess Corry finished a very creditable 10th closely followed in 12th by Maisie Whelan. Poppy Woodhead and Lucy Riddiough achieved top 20 places and Jess Size was not far behind.

In the boys race Callum Watson achieved a 10th with Ben Curtis, Tom Pickles, Jay Buchan, Sam Kirk and Seth Simpson taking places 15 to 19 respectively, following them were Kieran Goodall (Year 9) and Mohammed Badar showing amazing resilience in the conditions.

In the Year 10 and 11 race James Whiteoak had an amazing start and was in the leading group for the first half of the race, he finished 7th in the end but certainly gave it his all. Nikodem Laszkowski was not far behind and was involved in a dramatic sprint finish which he won despite sliding over the line on his back in the mud. Matthew Alred Yr11 was unable to finish after injuring his knee in the last few hundred metres. All our pupils were amazing and a credit to school; it really was a tough one in the conditions, well done.
