Ellie Parker and Alex Grocott both competed in the National Finals at Birmingham on Wednesday, in the 1500 metres. Ellie came 10th overall, beating the South West champion in the process.
Alex became National Champion, winning the U12 Boys’ race in a TMS record 4 minutes 53.2 seconds, knocking 1.4 seconds off his South West record achieved in the championships at Millfield a few weeks ago.
Congratulations Alex and Ellie!
The final Handwriting and Presentation Competition took place at the end of May and this time the children copied an extract from a book which they are reading.

The winners are:
- Year 2 : Chloe Askew for joined writing & Amy Tucker for print
