Emily Sutton undertook a Tetrathlon competition in Casterton and Kendal in May 2016, representing her branch of the Pony Club, West Lancs Pony Club. This included a Swim, 1000m Cross Country Run, Pistol Shoot and a Cross Country Horse Trial. On the first day Emily completed the Run, Shoot and Swim and was placed First in the Swim. After all events on the first day Emily was placed Third in the competition. There were competitors from the North West as well as Durham and the North East and Lincolnshire. The Cross Country Horse Trial was something that Emily hadn’t attempted before, the course was fairly long and hilly and would be an achievement in itself just to complete. Emily completed the course and at the end of the competition was placed Second individually and her Team made up of two other pony club members from other branches were placed First.

My Name is Georgia Cann and I am a former student of Burscough Priory Science College. I was the Deputy Head Girl and Chair of the School Council. In my GCSEs, I got 10 A*s and 2 As and at A level I got A*AA in Maths, Further Maths and Economics. I loved my time at Priory, it was full of opportunities for me to push myself knowing that I always have support from any teacher regardless of which opportunities I pursued. The extra curricular programme was brilliant to ensure I relieved my stress and tension and made lots of brilliant friends along the way. The guidance from my tutor, Mr Holden, my head of year, Mr Angove and all my subject teacher especially during exam periods was outstanding and I will never forget the help I received at Priory.
