Academy pupils strike bronze

Have your say

Pupils from the City of Peterborough Academy Special School joined over 1000 pupils from schools across Cambridgeshire to compete in the Sainsbury’s School Games.

Schools battled it out for the chance to become champions in the games, which act as the county finals for school sport.

Pupils from five of the School Sports Partnerships got involved including schools from Cambridge, Huntingdon, Peterborough, South Cambridge and Witchford.

The City of Peterborough Academy Special School represented Peterborough in the Adapted Multi-Sports 
primary competition, which was held at One Leisure 
St Ives Outdoor in Cambridgeshire, in which they scooped the bronze award.

The pupils were delighted with their achievement, which builds on the recent success of the secondary aged pupils from the Special School, who won the silver award back in March at a similar event.

The aim of the Sainsbury’s School Games is to use competitive sport to create a positive and rewarding experience for all young people involved, including participants and young leaders who help to support the events.
