On Thursday 25th May 75 English Martyrs students represented the school at the West Area Athletics Competition at Saffron Lane. It was a fantastic, if very warm, evening and our students working exceptionally hard and achieved tremendous success – 25 of them qualifying to represent West Leicester at the County Championships on Saturday 10th June. Our scores mean that we won the event overall beating Babington Academy, Fullhurst College, Lancaster Academy, New College, Samworth Academy, Sir Jonathon North School and Beaumont Leys School!
Congratulations to all who took part and good luck to those chosen to take part in the County Championships. On behalf of all the students a very big thank you to Mr Edwards, Ms Saunt, Mr Nicholson, Mr James, Mr Hawkins and Mr O'Donnell for encouraging everyone and helping to run the event. Without such dedicated members of staff, we would not be able to participate in competitions such as this.
