Schools Athletics Championships

On Thursday 25th April thirty-seven of our year 9 and 10 pupils competed in the Newcastle Schools Athletics Championships at Northwood Stadium.  The whole day was a success from start to finish.  The weather stayed dry for the first time ever, and all pupils competed in at least one event.  The pupils were superbly behaved and a real credit to the school.  There was a huge sense of team spirit and achievement within the team.

Joe Minton in year 9 came 2nd in both the 100m & 200m sprint.  Jemma Broadhurst in year 10 came 2nd in the Shot Putt and Tom Eaton in year 10 came 3rd in the High Jump.  All of the following are through to the County Finals.  All participants performed really well and did the PE department proud.

Here’s to next year!
