Last week a team of year 7 girls went to the rugby schools games at Hallam University sports park, with teams from across Yorkshire competing. Our girls were nervous and its fair to say they looked at some other teams (twice their size) and wondered if they wanted to play.

Although drenched in a blanket of mud, students and teachers didn’t want the experience to end. We finished our time at Hesley Wood, filthy, but relaxed. It was the perfect way to end our HAPs residential.
