At the recent HMC Athletics North East Meeting, held at Gateshead International Stadium, Prep School pupils from Years 4-6 competed against more than 12 other schools in track and field events and returned home with plenty to celebrate!
In the team event, the 4 x 100m relay, Pocklington Prep entered five teams and all five qualified for the finals. The girls’ U10 team (Anna Stephenson, Cora Seth, Tabitha Speight and Lucinda Parkes) won their final.
