The Boys’ Division Sports Day saw the return of the tug of war competition for the first time in over a decade. For all pupils in Years 7 to 10, the morning was filled with track and field events, and those not competing cheered for members of their House alongside family members who came along to watch.

Track events saw boys running distances of 100m, 200m, 300m, 800m and 1500m. Field events included discus, high jump, javelin, long jump, shot put and triple jump. The tug of war heats took place throughout the morning.

Sports Day was brought to a conclusion with boys from each year group taking part in 8x50m and 8x100m relays, and the tug of war finals adding to the spectacle. Next year the winning tug of war team will be awarded with the Wardle Trophy, named after Deputy Headmaster Mr Wardle who has left the School this summer.

The 2017 winners Wigan House successfully defended their Sports Day title and were presented with the trophy once again.
