Last week students from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 took part in the Gateshead Indoor Rowing Championships. It was a fantastic day for Joseph Swan as right from the start of the competition our students did really well. In Year 7 Lewis won gold and Alfie won silver medals in their races! The medals did not stop there as in Year 9 Cain won a bronze medal, and in Year 10 Charlie also gained a bronze.
When it came to the relay race the Year 7 students really stepped up their game and pipped another local school to win the race. The Year 7 relay winners were Lewis, Charlie, Alfie and Riley.
The students have done both themselves and the Academy very proud. Overall, this was a brilliantly successful day for our students and the Academy.
All of the students named above now have the chance to progress through to the next round. Well done from all of us in the Academy!
