What a fabulous group of students we have at Downlands Community School. At the Mid Sussex Cross Country Championships in Billingshurst last week, all year groups got wet and muddy for the joy of running!

Whizzing around the course at the Jubilee Fields the Downlands teams all put in great performances with Year 7 Boys coming 1st in the team competition out of eleven schools.

But it wasn’t just Year 7; Year 8 boys came 3rd, Year 9 boys came 3rd, Year 9 girls came 4th and the Year 10 boys came 3rd.

Notable individual performances were the amazingly speedy Morgan Thomas (who won the Year 8 girls race), Jemima Edwards (who came 3rd in the Year 10 girls race) and Josh Pay (who came 3rd in the Year 7 boys race). A special mention goes to Ben Herbert (10th in the Year 7 Boys Race), Sam Wright (4th in the Year 8 Boys Race) and Tom Roberts (8th in the Year 8 Boys Race).
