On Sunday 26 Sept, Dallam fielded 20 runners across five age groups in the English Schools Fell Running Championships held at Sedbergh School.
All runners had prepared with numerous training runs either with a club or school and their performances were a credit to the school. Team success came for our newest students, Year 7 came second in their team event with a wonderful performance.
The performance of the day goes to Year 11, Charlie Allmond, who won his age category and is now English Fell Running Champion 2021, an amazing achievement. His hard work and dedication is an inspiration to all of the team.
If you are inspired by Charlie and all of the team then please join the after-school running club on Fridays where you can try different routes around our area. All abilities are welcome at running club.
On Friday 1 Oct, six Dallam Students represented Dallam as part of the U14 and U15 South Lakes Schools Football squads that travelled to Sheepmount in Carlisle for the annual district tournaments.

Outside of school, we’d like to recognise the talent and achievements of Meara Knipe in Year 11. Meara is a keen horse rider and has attended many national championships since the summer and has been placed second and fourth a number of times. Miss Thompson, Meara’s Head of House comments,
We are very proud of Meara and her achievements. Meara is a keen equestrian and we hope that she continues to pursue her passion in the future
If you are a keen horse rider our boarding house has a great relationship with nearby Witherslack Hall Equestrian Centre.
