The PE Department invited the annual Gateshead SSP Street Striker roadshow into the Academy on Tuesday and students from Key Stage 3 were given the opportunity to test their ability in a football skills circuit. Stations included a keepy up contest, speed shot, dribbling channel, heading challenge, crossbar challenge and accuracy station.
The School Sports Partnership organised and led the event along with the help of some Year 10 GCSE PE students who were a credit to the Academy. Results have been received and will be announced in assemblies next week.
Special thanks also to PE staff who covered lessons and braved the elements outdoors.
