The previous weekend saw a number of KGS pupils take part in the Lancashire Cross Country Championships. One notable performance was Senior School pupil, Ben Preddy who completed the U15 boys’ course in a time of 12:47 to take second place and the silver medal. Well done to all KGS pupils who have taken part over the last two weekends, in what has been, and will continue to be, a busy time for KGS Cross Country athletes with the Wyre & Fylde Schools Cross Country Championships also taking place this week!
