Sports Day - Tuesday 27th June 2017

First track event - 1.15pm start

We are delighted to invite you to attend our Sports Day on Tuesday 27th June at 1.15pm.

This is the culmination of our summer sporting calendar and is always a hugely competitive but fun event as the four Houses battle it out for the House trophy.

We have seen an increase in the number of parents supporting the day in recent years, and this really helps contribute to the atmosphere and success of Sports Day. In keeping with this, students who are competing on the day, at any stage, will be asked to wear CGS PE kit and a House coloured T-shirt when representing their House. In case you are uncertain the house colours are as follows; Austen – Blue, Darwin – Yellow, Franklin – Red, Shakespeare – Green. We want students to wear their House colour but do not want face paints, please.

We will be joined by a special guest this year, a well known sports commentator, who will be working with Mr Biddle as compere. This should add a little ‘star quality’ to our very successful commentary team!

As in previous years, the field events will be taking place on the morning of Tuesday 27th June, which will be watched by students in the respective year groups, so the morning results will be announced during the course of the afternoon, including any Sports Day records which have been broken. We have attached the list of school records for your perusal.

We very much look forward to seeing you on the afternoon of 27th June and hope you will enjoy our track events as much as the students and staff do!

Yours sincerely,


Mr S Miles/Miss C Sole
Subject Leaders for Physical Education
