In September, a team of 19 runners made up of Sixth Formers, staff (including Headmaster Kevin Carson, Senior Deputy Head Rachel Bailey, Head of Sixth Form Clare Freeman and Assistant Head Desmond Cox) and a parent  will be tackling The Great North Run and raising money for the Prefect's Charity, which this year is The Rainbow Trust.

The team, made up of mainly novice runners, is demonstrating all of the school values in their commitment and determination to train for this event.  Mrs Freeman and the Year 12s have been running every Wednesday lunchtime, and each week the team has increased their distance, running in all weathers. Staff have also been training and you can find Ms Bailey donning her running kit on Tuesdays after school and Mr Carson hitting the tarmac on a weekend.

All members of the team are running to raise money for the Prefect Charity, The Rainbow Trust and would be grateful for any level of sponsorship to help them all keep training over the next few months. You can sponsor us by going to the following link:

The whole school community is hugely proud of the team and their efforts to get involved and get running #thisRMSGirlcan!
