Year 8 students are currently battling it out to cycle the longest distance to raise money for Sport Relief. The event, in the sports hall, runs from 08:00 to 16:00 and by about 10.30 the girls and boys teams already clocked up a creditable 35 and 40 miles respectively. Teacher Ms Marsh said: ‘They are in teams of 10 and it is obviously quite competitive. They are taking it in turns and noting how many miles they have done. I have given them distance challenges; for instance the length of the River Thames (215 miles) or the distance from Brooke Weston to Paris (375 miles) so they do have targets to aim for along the way. They are doing really well. They can decide how long they want to cycle for and, as soon as they are tired, another one of their team-mates takes over. So far we have around £300 pledged in sponsor money although more donations from students or staff are always welcome as the money raised is going towards such a great cause.’
