Well done boys!


Year 10 Volleyball

Congratulations to our Year 10 Girls Volleyball team who took home Silver medals from the Tameside Year 10 Volleyball plate competition. The girls won 4 out of 5 games overall narrowly missing out on first place. The girls were a credit to the school on and off the court. A big well done to Natasha, Madeline, Jessica and Chloe!

Well done also to our Year 10 Boys volleyball team who won 3 out of 6 games in a highly competitive tournament against Hyde Community College, St. Thomas More and St. Damiens. After a difficult start the boys showed great character to win their last 3 games! Well done Macaulay, Irvine, Ryan, Reece and Will!


Sports Leaders

The sports leaders are a group of committed students who give up their time to assist the PE Department. Sean Leyland-Raine referees all the primary school football games we host at the Academy and has recently been named School Sport Ambassador. Well done Sean!

Due to the success from last year the Dance Club has resumed with approximately 20 local primary school pupils attending the after school dance club. These brilliant and enjoyable classes are hosted by Jessica Holden, Molly Flynn, Bayleigh Parkes, Ashleigh Allcroft, Megan Davies-Truin, Madison Mellor, Emily Greaves and Tia Nash.

The sports leaders are a credit to the school and all the work they do is appreciated - Keep up the good work!

The trampolining club has been well attended and will continue Thursday at Lunch Time and after school. The trampolining club is just one of the new additions added to the extra-curricular activities in the PE Department along with Dodgeball on Tuesdays and Handball on Fridays.
