Student Success Stories

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Schools Athletic Championships

" I spent Saturday 9th June at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Schools Athletic Championships supporting our students who were competing in a range of track and field events. 
All the children who competed were a credit to BHBS. Their behaviour was impeccable and I was particularly impressed by the support and encouragement they showed each other.  
I would also like to comment on the support shown by our PE department. The event was attended by Mr Burgess, Mr Stubbs and Mrs Ogden, who gave up their Saturday and were on hand to help officiate and also support and encourage those competing. 
Everyone should be proud of their performances. We came away with numerous medals - 4 gold and 4 bronze medals:
Mandras - 100m gold; Sydney - 300m gold, 100m bronze; Chloe - 300m bronze; Darcie - 200m bronze; Tom - 800m bronze
Mandras and Sydney (above left) are through to the Mason Trophy Meeting and the other bronze medalists are on the reserve list. 
We have some very talented athletes and a dedicated PE department. "

Rowing Success for Henry Fraser and Alfie Wynter in Year 9.

Henry Fraser and Alfie Wynter represented Hereford Rowing Club at The National Schools Regatta on Friday 25th May 2018.
The event is the country’s top schools event with ferocious competition. The boys were entered in the J14 coxed quad category with students from both Weobley and Lucton schools.
There were 58 entries in their event which consisted of time trials and dependent on their times the crews were then split into A,B,C and D groupings with 6 lane final.
The boys exceeded expectation and finished second out of 58 in the time trials, earning an 'A' final place. This was a massive achievement; they missed first place by 0.89 of a second!
Henry and Alfie  achieved 5th in the final, a very creditable result. The coxed quad event is the only event in their age group so all the best scullers would have been there. Hereford Rowing Club cannot remember reaching an 'A' final in quad sculls before.

We are very proud of their achievement and now look forward to the Junior Britchamps in July.

Well done both !
