Congratulations to our year 7 & 8  Indoor Athletics teams today who came 1st in the North Devon schools indoor Athletics championships held at the North Devon leisure centre.

The team, comprising 14 boys and girls, had to compete in the 6 lap relay race, 4 lap relay race, 2 lap relay race, obstacle relay, standing triple jump, standing long jump, vertical jump, speed bounce and standing shot put. Each and every one of them excelled and was a credit to our academy.
