A record-breaking Sports Day 2023

Ripon Grammar School students came together for a magnificent 2023 Sports Day, celebrating individual achievements, sportsmanship and team spirit as they represented the four Houses of RGS in athletics. 

Three students broke records. Isabella Simpson broke the Year 8 girls' javelin record previously held by Susannah Daish in 1980 and Beth Takieddine broke Valerie Cooper's Year 8 girls' 200m record from 1976. Joshua Risbey in Year 9 broke the javelin record previously held by S Watkinson from 2005. (See RGS Sports Day records, below)

In addition to many superb stand-out performances, and just as impressive, every student gave it their all, enjoying huge support and encouragement from a very enthusiastic crowd. Well done to all those who took part and thank you to all our helpers and to Friends of RGS for providing refreshments.
