The first House points for the 2017/18 school year are on the board after the first event of the year.

On Tuesday 10th October, scores of students took the back field, donned their house colours with pride and raced hard to win points for their houses.

Six races took place – Year 7 Girls, Year 7 Boys, Year 8/9 Girls, Year 8/9 Boys, Year 10/11 Girls and Year 10/11 Boys.  Students score points for their houses for taking part with bonus points being awarded for the top finishers.  The points from the above races are then collated to make the overall results.

After all the points were calculated St. Margaret Clitherow house scored the first maximum 8 points of the new year coming in 1st place. St. Thomas More followed in 2nd place picking up 5 points, with Blessed John Ingram, St. John Boste & St. Anne Line finishing 3rd-5th respectively.
