Cross Country Update from Mr Richards ……………… Well done to all the students that attended the South Gloucestershire Cross Country Event 2017 at Blaise Castle. In recent years the weather had been awful but this year, we couldn’t have asked for better. Marlwood School students showed the perseverance and resilience needed as there were some tough competitors in the races but all did a fantastic job.

Races were held in boys and girls events for Minors (Year 7), Juniors (Year 8 and 9), Inter (Year 10 and 11) and Seniors (Year 12 and 13). These went really efficiently and we actually finished ahead of schedule! We are just waiting on the final results. After the races were completed many of the competitors showed Marlwood’s ethos of “working together for excellence” and all pitched in to take down the course.

A massive thank you to Mrs Ferguson and Mr Humphries for becoming team managers at such short notice.

A final thank you to all the marshal’s, school staff and to Westbury Harriers running club for all your support in making this event run so smoothly.

Well done to all students and staff for supporting this event!
