The Joseph Rowntree School Wiltshire cluster had another big day at the Yorkshire Panathlon finals last week. The team performed superbly throughout but were sadly pipped to the post by Calderdale in a thrilling final and ended as runners up.

Team leader Barry Cornforth, who was recently crowned Teacher of the Year at the Minster FM Local Hero Awards said "Our trophy cabinet is full! I said to them beforehand, 'no pressure - just do your best,' but of course deep down you really want them to win. We've just come back from an overnight residential so I think they're all tired - I know I am! It has still been a great day and really it's all about building up the students' self esteem and confidence."
