Gillbrook and Eston Park are working closely with each other to ensure that we offer students a wide variety of sporting activities. As a result we are offering joint extra curricular clubs and teams. This will have many benefits for students and will ensure good relationships between students from both schools ahead of the merger in 2014. A variety of different activities have been on offer across both schools that cater for boys, girls and students with special educational needs.

We received the 4th most points on the day from all the schools in the District. For a school of our size this is a fantastic achievement. Well done to all the students involved!

All the students had a practice on the bikes before their competition. We had Ellie Pears and Lydia James who won their individual heats and in the final they finished 1st and 2nd overall which is a tremendous achievement.
