I had the opportunity this week to watch part of a football match between our Year 11 boys and a team from Pudsey Grangefield. It led me to reflect upon the great number of sporting and other extracurricular activities which are available to our pupils. Sadly, school sport is on the decline in many establishments. Here there are many staff (from PE and other departments) who are still willing to give up a great deal of their time to run teams and clubs. I am very grateful to them.
