I must say how impressed I was today with Hannah Williams and Sienna Williams during Takeover Day.

We started the day off with a discussion about the Elite Development Scheme. We looked into what is involved regarding the application process, decision making, sport/fitness provision and the academic requirements students have to meet to maintain the position on the scheme.

Following this, the girls enthusiastically and diligently individually packaged the Elite kit for students following the delivery from our supplier.

It was then time to update the Elite display cabinets outside Boys PE before updating the after school curricular posters around each school base.

The girls were a pleasure to work and as well as being a big help and working extremely hard, hopefully they have learnt a little more about our scheme and how it all works.
