Amy sends school records tumbling in Inter-House Cross Country

Clayesmore’s pupils are a hardy lot and a frosty running surface and slightly chillier temperatures didn’t put them off running the 4.2km course on Tuesday of this week. There were some very strong individual running performances, as well as a great deal of support on the finish line, with the majority of senior school pupils completing the race. There were stand out performances from Alex D’A, who finished first for the senior boys in a time of 14.39minutes, and Amy, knocking a massive 1.20minutes off the school record to finish in a time of 16.39minutes.

Thanks to Mr Humpage for arranging the event with support from numerous members of staff including from the Medical Centre, the Gardens and Grounds and Catering teams and congratulations to all who took part.
