Archway School

Sumo Wrestling Fundraiser

This event was organised by The Sixth Form Committee, led by Head Boy, Kieran Coombes and Head Girl, Courtney Aylott.  It was supported by at least 50 additional sixth formers who ran lucky dip stalls and cake sales.

The event involved teachers from all departments across the school, volunteering to sumo wrestle a colleague in stuffed sumo suits!  The main spectacle was 6’6 Mr Piper (PE) vs 5’2 Mr Russell (History), as well as some great entertainment from Mrs Lee-Allan (Drama) and Ms Bolton (History and RS).

The majority of funds raised have gone to The Hollie Gazzard Trust (chosen by Sixth Form Committee) and  to develop Archway Sixth Form.  The event raised £500 and intended to involve the whole school and raise the profile of Archway Sixth Form.
