On Friday 23rd June a group of Year 10 pupils were asked to umpire for the County Year 7 Netball Finals at the School Games at Keele University. They have previously umpired primary school competitions and were selected to umpire again at this event.
Whilst there the pupils met two Olympic Gold medallists; Sam Quek (Hockey) and Ian Marsden (Paralympic canoeist).
The girls thoroughly enjoyed the day and it has helped their confidence and knowledge of netball ready for their GCSE PE assessment next year.
Mrs Castrey commented: “I am so proud of the girls. They conducted themselves professionally and represented the school well.
It has been really lovely to watch the girls grow in confidence over the year with their umpiring and I am proud of how much they have learned and taken on board.”
