The PE staff were honored to host their annual Sports Day at Monkton Stadium on Monday 11th July, where a total of 224 students represented the Academy in a variety of field and track events for their perspective house blocks. The event was hugely successful with all students performing exceptionally well and demonstrating fantastic team camaraderie.

The winners of the individual year group awards went to:

Year 7 Girl- Chelsea Hennon (Fleet)
Year 7 Boy- Owen Brady (Turner)

Year 8 Girl- Charlotte Dyball (Fleet)
Year 8 Boy- Matthew Cleugh (Turner)

Year 9 Girl- Emma Newport (Talbot)
Year 9 Boy- Matthew Wade (Brookside)

The competition between all house blocks was very close but in the end it was Talbot who ran to victory, winning the very prestigious LLOB Sports Day Shield.

Can I please thank all staff involved who helped in the organisation and running of the event, especially the staff who gave up their gained time to help with crowd control as well as staff covering lessons in house; allowing all of the PE department to deliver the event.

We are already looking forward to next year’s event, where we are hoping to raise the standard of competition even more; so please watch this space…

Many thanks

The PE Department.
