Sports’ Day at Senior School

New Sports’ Day Records set in sweltering heat!

Westholme’s Senior School Sports’ Day took place today – and what a scorcher it was!   Parents and grandparents came along to cheer on their family members, soak up the  glorious sunshine, and to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch.


Everyone, from our youngest Year 7 pupils to the seasoned Sixth Former  participated to the very best of their abilities, and the atmosphere was competitive, happy – and loud!

Congratulations to Pendle who were overall victors with a fantastic 910 points.   Longridge came in 2nd place (843 points), followed by Bowland (793 points) and Calder (757 points).
