The independent school staged three sports days for its early years, preparatory and senior schools in blistering summer sunshine.

As well as the tug of war, the senior sports day also included football, touch rugby and traditional track and field events.

To keep the students energised for sport and exercise, a hog roast, salads and ice creams were available at lunchtime, with afternoon tea for visiting parents and families.

Danielle Clarke, principal of St Joseph's College, said: "Sports days are a highlight of the end of the school year, both for students and families.

"It was wonderful to see our pitches alive with activity and good-natured competition - everyone supporting one another and living the school's motto of being our best."
