Leadership Academy for Sporty Students

Active Teacher Phil Woolley is helping a group of Year 10 students complete their Leadership Academy training in preparation for a major sporting event.

The students will be key players in the Northamptonshire Games 2012 – a Government-funded county-wide schools event which aims to promote sport in this Olympic year.

The students have already undergone one day of training at our sister school Brooke Weston Academy and have another two to go before the finale event in July.

As part of the Games schools from within the various School Sport Partnership areas will compete against other to book their place in the final.

Sports included in the games include Hockey, Table Tennis, Gymnastics, Netball and Indoor Rowing.

Mr Woolley said: “The students had to apply for their place in the Academy and it is a great opportunity for them.

“It will help them learn a number of sort leadership skills which will be invaluable if they wish to proceed into coaching to teaching Physical Education within schools.”
