A Record Breaking Sports Day

On Friday 14th July, all QE students from Year 7 and 8 attended our annual sports day at Exeter Arena. Conditions were absolutely perfect. So perfect in fact, that we saw seven records broken on the day. This is a record in itself!

Mr Skinner, Learning Area Team Leader for PE said “An extended thanks must go out to all the staff and Sixth Formers who helped to officiate on the day. Thanks also, to all the parents who turned up to support the event. Finally, thanks and congratulations must go to all our students who represented the school so brilliantly.”

The following records were broken:
