Today was an amazing chance for four of our children from Whittlefield to try a new sport and something they haven’t done before. The sports festival was held at Thomas Whittam Sixth Form in the sports hall and was based on wheelchair sports.  This included wheelchair hand ball and wheelchair basketball. They all tried their best and showed resilience and determination from start to finish! Well done to all four of you, you were excellent.
