Thornton’s Junior track and field team places second in county.
Great performances from our Year 7 and 8 Junior team and our Senior Year 9 and 10 team at the English Schools' Track and Field Cup competition. The annual event took place at Stantonbury Campus, Milton Keynes, and welcomed competitors from nine schools in the county.
Very much a team competition, students had to each enter one track and one field event or a track and a relay.
The Seniors finished in sixth place. The Juniors, we are delighted to report, came second with 247 points. Their success might yet see them go through to the regional heats (dependent on the points scored in other counties over the next two weeks).
