Year 8 Handball National Event

18 Feb 2022

16 of our year eight boys and girls attended an England handball national event on Wednesday 16th February. The standard was extremely high but our students did themselves, and the academy proud. The boys started poor but grew into the competition and were unfortunate not to get out of the group stages following their wins against Durham Johnston Comprehensive School and Ponteland High School. The girls were outstanding in their group, winning two out of three against Duchess Community High School and Durham Johnston Comprehensive School, and not conceding a goal in the first two games. They were then narrowly beat in the semi-finals 1-0 by High Tunstall College of Science. This was a great day for all students!
