During the final weeks of the summer team, the PE department hosted Selwood’s first ever Tug of War inter form. Each tutor group nominated a mixed team of boys and girls to represent them and compete against all other tutor groups in their year group.


Over the 4 afternoons, 310 pupils took part! The winning tutor groups were:

5R, 6F and 7E, with a just for fun competition be run for the year 8s.


It is hoped the event will now become a regular feature in the Selwood calendar, alongside the Cross Country Championships which were introduced last year. Tug of war proved to be a great way to finish the academic year, whilst promoting the Academy’s core values of Community and Joy.
