Eleven teams took part from different areas in Surrey and overall we finished in 4th position which was fantastic. In addition to this great achievement we were awarded 1st place for demonstrating the school games values: determination, passion, self-belief, honesty, respect and team work. We are incredibly proud of Oscar and Sienna and the whole team. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with such motivated children.
