Academy young sports leaders impress
Sports Leaders from year 9 were once again given the opportunity to show off the leadership skills they have learnt. On March 8th reception pupils from our feeder primary schools came to the Academy to take part in a Multi-skills Festival. It must have been quite daunting for them to be in such a huge school amongst much bigger children, but they soon overcame their nerves and enjoyed trying out new sporting activities. All the little ones worked really hard all morning, and the year 9s proved themselves to be fantastic leaders and facilitators, demonstrating various techniques and encouraging the younger ones. Visiting staff were impressed by the sports leaders' communication skills and patience.
