Northwood Senior Athletics Success

A total of 43 students from Year 9 & 10 represented The King's in the Newcastle Borough District inter-school athletics event. This required each students to take part in a range of athletic events, coming up against the very best competitors from local schools.


In a large event that required maturity and independence, our students' behaviour, attitude and sporting values were exceptional. It was pleasure to be staffing a group of students with a real togetherness and willingness to encourage their peers within each event. This team spirit contributed towards many resilient and hardworking performances -- especially within the distance events. 


Despite fierce competition, three of our students managed to emerge as medallists, and subsequently qualify to represent The King's in the County Finals. 


Lucas W placed 1st , picking up a gold medal in the U15 Discus.

Rhianna W placed 1st , picking up a gold medal in the U15 Long Jump. 

Connell L placed 3rd, picking up a bronze medal in the U17 Javelin. 


This is an OUTSTANDING achievement, congratulations!

Well done to everyone who participated.
