Pupils at Stamford Endowed Schools have had a busy few weeks.

Hockey players at Stamford High School learned how to improve their game strategy as they heard tips from GB Olympic bronze medallist Chloe Rogers.

The Olympic hockey player spent the day coaching teams and sharing her story on how she achieved success in the London Games.

Out of six schools which took part in a cross country competition, hosted by Brooke Priory School in Oakham, four team titles were won by Stamford Junior School. Stamford had its most successful year with a team of 46 pupils from years three to six competing on a challenging course over fields and obstacles set to test their stamina.

Pupils at Stamford Junior School got to study their school in a more creative way when they drew it as part of the UK wide the Big Draw, which was set up to encourage people of all ages to see drawing as a way of understanding the world.

The French Consul Général de France à Londres, M Olivier Chambard was welcomed to the school to remember former French pupil Victor-André Grivel, who died in the First World War.

During his visit, M Chambard met A-level pupils who are studying French. He also spoke of his gratitude that the school had remembered one of his countrymen.

And finally, Stamford School achieved success in a rugby game against Bedford Modern after Leicester Tigers’ legend Brett Deacon and Tosh Askew, an academy coach, coached them.
