The Year 7 Netball Team won 6 games and drew 1 resulting in 1st place in the South West Durham Netball Tournament.
They were outstanding and played so well together as a team.



Yesterday, a group of lower school (y7 and y8) students went on a visit to GSK at Barnard Castle with Mr Moore, Miss Dunbar and Miss Oakden. This is the start of a 10 week project the science club are doing in collaboration with industrial partners to design an 'eco factory'. Other schools around the local area are also competing in the competition which will be judged by GSK in June.
