"Each year we end the summer term with our Annual Sports Day, won this year, by the narrowest of margins, by Nightingale who pipped Brindley to breast the finishing tape after a neck and neck final straight. The weather was sublime, as it has been all this half term and as we gathered together in the Main Hall for the Sports Award ceremony this week we paused to reflect on what has been a really special summer so far. "
"As we draw to the close of a memorably wintry Spring Term it is remarkable how much has been achieved since Christmas. The highlight of the term has been our 60th Anniversary celebrations culminating in a wonderful fund raising Ball held at Pride Park on Saturday 10th March attended by almost 400 and which raised more than £9000 for the school."
"The end of term is always a time of celebration and excitement and this year has been no exception. Christmas feels like it is on the way each year at Ecclesbourne when the annual House Play Competition takes place. This year was our biggest yet with well over 150 students involved in writing, directing, acting and dancing in the four plays. "
