Our Year 6 Open Evening was held on 15 September 2015 and was a great success. For those parents who were unable to make the evening a copy of the Principal's presentation is below.
Dan Drayton raced into the top ten of the European Junior Cup at Donnington Park with a career best 7th place finish at the end of an intense 11 laps around the 2.5 mile East Midlands circuit.
Starting from a career best qualifying position of 13th Dan made a great start and was inside the top ten almost immediately.
Lapping almost a second faster than he did in qualifying he worked his way forward to claim 9 well deserved points after a truly memorable race that had the union jacks positioned around the circuit waving and the fans at the paddock show raising the roof as he was invited onto the stage in the fanzone after the race.
Dan said about his time at Outwood Academy Brumby “I needed time out of school for both my testing sessions and travel for race weekends. The last two years of school were important for my exam preparation, so we had meetings to see how I could do both. The school worked my curriculum to allow time to race, without affecting my attendance. But we had a contract and that was important, if I didn’t meet my grades or continue to achieve in class both in the lesson and with my homework then that privilege would be taken away. We both kept to our agreements and I felt supported, so much so that both the college and my employer have agreed to similar arrangements. I was allowed to pursue my dream”
Well done Dan !
