'Today has been a very great experience, coming second in this event and qualifying for the London Finals at Crystal Palace is a great achievement. This will be the last chance for us year 8 students to compete in this Athletics competition and we aim to compete at a very high standard. Next year it will all be down to the current year 7 cohort and the new cohort that will join the school in Sept 2013. We wish them all the best and hope they get to have the experience that we have all had.'
