24 gold, 13 silver and 8 bronze for Ark Alexandra Academy gymnasts.

A 22 strong team of students from travelled to Eastbourne for the annual Sussex Schools’ Sports Acrobatics and Gymnastics Competition last weekend. With over 200 entries from schools across East and West Sussex, the battle was on. The standard was incredibly high this year and the team were determined to try to defend their title and continue to build on the success of previous years under their new Ark Alexandra Academy title. The girls gave some exceptional performances resulting in a medal haul of 24 gold, 13 silver and 8 bronze, as well as the Advanced Compositional Group Trophy and the Overall Team title for the 15th consecutive year. Most impressively, every gymnast came home with a medal!

The girls were an absolute delight to watch and a credit to the academy: Congratulations girls and thank you for your hard work and commitment.

Our year 10 & 11 Netball teams completed their area tournaments last week and impressively battled against strong competition to finish in first place respectively. Year 10 were drawn against The St. Leonards Academy, Claverham and Buckswood and Year 11, against St. Richards, The St. Leonards Academy ad Claverham. The girls showed drive, determination and skill in the cold conditions, to triumph. Well done to everyone who played!
