Sports Day 2016
Monday 11th July 2016 will be remembered as another great Sports Day for Wilton Campus. An amazing 21 new school records were broken – many PBs (personal bests) smashed and potentially a handful of Focus school records made! (First ever for Wilton Campus).
This was the last school event with our historic 4 House teams and they certainly put their all into this event. Next year we welcome the introduction of the new Global three House system.
It was the first time Wilton Campus has used the Bournemouth athletic stadium. The day was warm and started off with a blustery east wind causing the ‘back straight ‘ to be a real battle for those competing in the 1500m, 800m, 400m and 4x100m relay. This was overcome well by the participants as the teams roared each other on…!
A great atmosphere was created with over 240 participants, years 3 to 13 inclusive, and approx 500 spectators. There was great support from the teaching staff and a visit by Mr.Colley our full-time PE teacher starting in September who very kindly got the day under way with an important warm up.
A special thank you to all the students who gave up time to practise, as with anything in life practise pays off! The results we very close and for the first time in the history of this event at Wilton, Wardour were the worthy winners! Well done the Green Wardour Team!

Sports Day 2015
This was the first joint Primary and Secondary Sports Day the Wilton Campus have organised. The feedback has been excellent and as usual the Students made the day!
Everyone joined in well and created an event which was action-packed with 19 school records broken along with new records set for the Primary events. Congratulations to Grovely for clinching the title – excellent teamwork. Hosted in Yeovil for the first time, the facilities were excellent: parking nearby, on-site food and drink kiosk, grandstand seating for 130 and above all an excellent running track and arena for the students to use and showcase their athletic ability. Electronic and photographic finish timing was used for the first time. It proved to be an essential requirement for accuracy, certainly something we will be using going forward.
