100% of our Key Stage 2 children have completed 2 terms of swimming this year and 100% of our Year 6 pupils are leaving us having achieved all of the national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety. Living in the Lake District and by the sea - nothing could be more important for the safety and wellbeing of our children.

Millom Area Inter-Schools Cross Country Event

Congratulations to Charley on becoming Millom area's inter-schools Year 3 and 4 girls cross country champion! What a race!

A huge well done also to Max on coming second in the Year 5 and 6 boys race and to Molly on coming 3rd in the Year 3 and 4 girls race.

Thank you so much to Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 for a fabulous afternoon at the Millom Schools Cross Country competition held at Black Combe School. I was literally bursting with pride watching all of our children run in their cross country races. The determination and self-belief they showed was incredible and the compassion and respect they had for others was fantastic. The behaviour of our children was, as usual, second to none and it was an absolute pleasure to join them on the trip. (Mrs Cummings)

In the team competition the results were:

Year 3/4 team: 2nd

Year 5/6 team: 4th
