Year 7 Large Catch in Catch & Release Competition


Samuel James (7L2) found success recently in the Gosport & District Junior catch and release competition. Coming 3rd in the overall competition, Sam caught the heaviest fish of the competition with a 10lb 4oz undulate ray.


Sam has achieved great things yet again in the world of fishing. Well done from the Year 7 team for another brilliant catch. Keep up the great work ?

Miss S Haynes, Year 7 Manager
