Multi Sports Festival For Partnership Academies

Year 7 students from the Brooke Weston Partnership academies will compete in archery, dodgeball and rowing competitions in the first cross-academy Sports Festival.

More than 135 students will take part in the event at CBA on Thursday, February 17th, with Year 7s from CBA, Kettering Science Academy and Brooke Weston Academy all having a go at five sports, including basketball and table tennis.

The event, held in conjunction with the Corby, Oundle and Thrapston School Sports Development and the Kettering School Sports Partnership, will also allow Sixth Formers to get involved with the organisation and running of the activities.

CBA's Director of Sport Amy Harris said: "It's the first time we have done something like this and we think it will be a great opportunity for students to have a go at a range of different sports, and it has been designed to engage students in alternative activities.

"The event will run annually with each Academy holding the event with the aim of encouraging students to try new activities.

"We are extremely lucky at the Academy that we have so many trained coaches and staff who can introduce new sports to the students both through the curriculum and Session 4.

"It's not always the traditional sports that students want to do so we have to offer them activities that they can enjoy and participate in outside of school.

"The School Sports Partnership have been a big inspiration into developing the event and helping with funding, which we are extremely grateful for."
