Pupils at Saint Felix School in Reydon have been enjoying some notable achievements on the sports field, with top results at regional and national competitions in athletics and cricket.

Joshua Oshunrinde, 15, – who has been selected to represent Suffolk at the English Schools Track and Field Championships in Birmingham in July - 16-year-old Tom Owusu-Brew and 14-year-old Max Birtwhistle all represented Suffolk at the Anglian Schools Athletic Championships. Max placed third in the junior boys long jump, Tom came third in the senior boys long jump and Josh finished second in the inter boys 100m.

Brooke Oram, 13, has also been selected to represent the east area in the 1500m at the National Prep School Championships, which takes place next month in Birmingham. She qualified for the competition after finishing second in the same event at the East Area Prep Schools Athletics Championships in Bedford at the beginning of June.

Meanwhile, the school's under 12s cricket team celebrated being crowned Suffolk champions after a win at the finals of the Bunbury Cup at Orwell Park. Up against Ipswich School, the team secured a comfortable defeat over Ipswich with 160 runs to 115.

The most notable of these was the under 13 girls 1500m, a record that had been unbroken since 1984 but was beaten by eight seconds by 13-year-old Poppy Branton.
