This book of records was the idea of Sarah O'Hara and was established in June 2010 by Miriam Hayes' School Government as our legacy and a way to celebrate the achievements and spirit of the school.
We hope that future years take up the challenge of breaking existing records and establishing new ones.



In order for a record to be included in the School Book of Records it has to be
a) Measurable - e.g. time taken to run a certain distance
b) Objective - so the ‘best singer’ could never be a record but the ‘longest sustained note’ or the ‘largest choir’ could be
c) Officially witnessed - by a member of staff or the School Government
