    Outwood Games Athletics – Year 9-11

    On Thursday 18th September 2014 Mr Best and Mrs Brookes took 42 pupils made up of athletes, sports leaders, Paralympics and also cheerleaders. All of which were a credit to both themselves and the academy. Overall we finished in 3rd position, but the most pleasing aspect for us was the attitude of all those involved; including the sports leaders who were not only supporting the other schools achievements but also helping them to improve as well. True Sportsmanship! Well done everyone.
