Over the last few weeks students from across the academy have been competing in various athletic competitions, with the most recent being the Mid-Cheshire Athletics trials which were held on separate dates throughout May and June.

80 students from the academy competed in a plethora of athletic events. The competition across the schools was very high with events having well over 15 competitors from schools from across the district.

All these students have now been selected to represent Mid-Cheshire at the Cheshire Trials to be held at Warrington, Victoria Park.

Congratulations to all students who took part and especially to the 13 students from the academy that have gained district call ups. This is a marvellous achievement as we have never had so many district representatives at the academy. Well done students!

A final mention should go to Rebecca Ward who not only represented the district squad, but also qualified to represent Cheshire team at the regional trials with a personal best throw of 10.02m. Congratulations, Rebecca!
