On the 3rd July five of our pupils were invited to go on a Golden Ticket Trip to Grantham. Corey was awarded his ticket for his efforts at the quicksticks hockey festival and Lexi was awarded her ticket at a multi-sports festival. The remaining recipients were chosen by us and after much thought we chose; Lily-Mai, Freya and Harry as all three have represented the school in an exemplary manner on many occasions.
We met up with Miss Powell and the Golden Ticket winners from Burgh and Friskney at Skegness Grammar School before heading over to Horncastle to pick up Horncastle and Woodhall Spa's winners.
Once we arrived at Grantham students had the opportunity to watch the opening ceremony for one of the biggest school athletics events in the country with over 2000 young people taking part. The group heard from David Ross and from World Record Holder Jonathan Edwards! After that students had a chance to soak up the atmosphere, take on a student scholar in Table Tennis, see if they could win a point and meet even more VIP, Team GB Athletes. Among those athletes were Colin Jackson, Marilyn Okoro, Sally Walton, Jenny Meadows and Olympic Gold Medal winner Mark Lewis-Francis.
In the afternoon we moved on to Grantham Bowl for a couple of games of bowling before heading back to school.
