All of year 8 were treated to a BMX experience in school. BMXing is an excellent sport as it improves cycling skills, balance and very importantly self-confidence. Micahel Osborne in Y11 an excellent BMX cyclist helped by demonstrating his ability and leading in lessons. This was a most enjoyable event and many of the students asked could it become a PE option?
