Having competed successfully in two previous rounds, Blair H (Year 7), Marc G, Tom E and James R (all Year 8) were excited to show the judges how hard they had worked to perfect their routines. They were especially excited to be the first team to have successfully reached a national trampoline final.
A group of students in Years 10 to 13 has been busy working on entries for the UKAYRoC rocket building competition.
