Benjy and Rebekah succeed English Schools’ Athletics Championships

Benjy and Rebekah star at the English Schools’ Athletics Championships

Congratulations to Benjy Okeiyi in year 12 and Rebekah Tyler in year 11 for two outstanding performances in the English Schools’ Athletics Championships. Benjy came third in the in the 400 metre hurdles with an incredibly fast time of 55.56 seconds. Most of us could not cycle round a track in less than a minute – without hurdles! In late July we heard Benjy had been selected for England in the Youth Nations Cup to be held in Dublin over the first weekend in August.

Rebekah came seventh in the shot with a throw in excess of 12 metres – another astonishing result.

Well done to both competitors – we are truly proud of you.
