One of the real regrets of the current situation we find ourselves in is the impact on our ability to play and watch live sport both in terms of following our favourite football team and also of playing fixtures against other schools. Wednesday afternoon doesn’t quite have the same excitement as when you’re getting into a mini bus and travelling to a friendly local school for a game of hockey or football or rugby.

It is something the heads in our IAPS District 5 have been working hard towards resolving for the start of next term.

I have one bit of exciting sporting success to share with you. A distinguished former pupil Orlando Bailey, played his first professional senior rugby game several weeks ago, coming on as a substitute fly half in Bath RUFCs comprehensive victory against Worcester. Let’s hope this is the first of many caps.

To lighten the mood on this damp day, the games staff have kindly volunteered to play, “Guess the Legs”. Answers on a post card please.
