TBS Year 11 students also officiated the event for nearly 4 hours and were fantastic. They not only had to umpire their peers in a district competition but did so knowing they were also completing a controlled assessment towards their PE GCSE.
All student involved were a credit with their behaviour and attitude throughout.
