Pate's Athletes impress in Regional Event

We were delighted to hear that Rory Cawkwell and Holly Bankes (both Y12) picked up a gold medal each at the recent South West Indoor Athletics Championships. Rory won the 60m with Holly coming home first in the 400m. The victory was even more impressive given they were competing in the u20 category! Well done to both.

Cheltenham District Cross Country Championships 2016

This year saw the most successful Cheltenham Cross Country Championships ever.

The minor girls (year 7) started off the proceedings with Emma Tillott leading the race from the start and retaining this position to the very end. Darcy Barton followed Emma in second place and Ali Hall passed a number of competitors to take fourth position. The minor boys appeared to all stick together with Noah Goymer taking thirty-third position, Tom Abbott close behind thirty-fifth, Matthew Winskill, forty-second, George Luck fifty-fourth, Will Tallis Sixty-second, Rafael Ben-Akin sixty-fifth and Isaac Horton seventieth. Slightly further behind Demi Yussuf came seventy-eighth, Ethan Kwok came eighty-seventh, Olba Obidon one hundredth.

All junior girls, Yasmin Thomas, Laura Brophy and Corli Moore attacked the course and completed it with a smile. For the junior boys Luke Buck ran a strong race finishing fourth, Rob Mashiter took thirty-ninth place, Oscar Godden close behind finishing forty-fourth, Rufus Northrup fifty-ninth, Iggy Padfield sixty-second and Alex O’Hara sixty-fourth.

The inter girls were a very strong pack, attacking well and finishing almost all together! Laura  McPeake held second position for most of the race, only to be picked at the post and take third, Inca Padfield had a very strong run finishing fourth, Emma Clarke almost at her side in fifth position and Emma Quekett in eighth position.  Our inter boys Matthew Long came seventeenth and Ayman Ahmed thirty-first.

Our senior team was the most numerous and most successful ever. For the boys Will Crisp held first position for the whole race, even slowing down to allow the gap between him and second place to close slightly! Joe Critchley followed Will in second place, with Joe Speak finishing a strong race in fifth positon, Tom Davies seventh, Tom Coach eighth and Xander Maciness in ninth. Andrew McPeake came a very convincing thirteenth, Sam Hardy sixteenth, Alex Dufour seventeenth and Toby Gray nineteenth.

For the senior girls Bethan Moore led the girl’s race from the start to the end, with her team mates Holly Bankes a secure second, Grace Knapp in fourth, Amelia Errington in fifth position and Jess Telford in seventh.

A big well done to all the competitors.

Leaders of 2050 give their vision for the future

Release Date: Draft



The managing directors and business leaders of the future gave their insight into what Gloucestershire will look like in 2050 at a seminar event run by GFirst LEP and Gloucestershire County Council in November. By inviting students to discuss their views of what the future of Gloucestershire holds, GFirst hopes to gain a different perspective for strategic planning.

The event saw students aged 16-18 from 20 schools come together and discuss education, work, energy, the environment and how to accommodate the growth in population without spoiling the green spaces of the county.

Their vision suggests that Gloucestershire 2050 will be a technologically advanced civilisation, with technology making life simpler. We may be living in houses built underground to preserve green space and agricultural land, with virtual reality creating windows to imagined landscapes.

David Owen, Chief Executive of GFirst LEP commented: “It was so inspiring to hear the ideas of young people living in Gloucestershire today, on the county they want to live and work in over the coming years. The discussions led to a number of imaginative and exciting ideas for the future including education, community and business, to name a few. Working so closely with these young people, as well as a range of local business representatives, has made our job of planning a more effective and visionary Gloucestershire fascinating.”

Gloucestershire County Council Chief Executive, Peter Bungard, said: “For Gloucestershire to thrive, we need a vision of what we hope the county will be like a generation ahead.  A group of sector experts were asked by GFirst LEP and the County Council to suggest some options for a successful Gloucestershire 2050.  However, perhaps even more important will be the views of those who might be leading lights in our county in 30 years’ time.  I am delighted that we have been able to get a group of school students together to undertake the same piece of thinking, and the feedback so far is proving incredibly positive.”

The next step for GFirst LEP is to formulate the next stages of its plan for the county. A report of this workshop, and others with a similar agenda but participants at different career stages will follow.

David Owen concluded: “By looking ahead to where we want to be and working back from that point, we can generate a growth plan with clear milestones to reach to achieve that view, that Vision 2050”.
